What kind of tea do you like?

I love strong hot tea recently, especially black tea and Oolong tea. Sometimes I drink tea with honey and lemon, It tastes very good.
When the clock rang, everything in the world stopped for tea. Read a book quietly, then a cup of tea, I am very enjoy it.

My very favorite is Good Earth's Sweet and Spicy. Its a black tea with apple and cinnamon overtones. I usually make a couple of quarts of iced tea at a time, half S&S and half Lipton's. And I have a glass of iced tea most warm afternoons. If its cold, I'll have regular S&S or a spiced chai. In the evening i occasionally have a decaf spiced chai.

I like Earl Grey and Constant Comment teas.





Yes! Good Earth Original (Sweet & Spicy) tea is amazing! They changed the label though.

I like black tea, but I stopped drinking it when I found out that tea leaves absorb more fluoride from the soil than any other plant. If you've done any research on fluoride it is not good for you. Turns your pineal gland (third eye) to stone. And apparently white, green, and black tea are all from the same plant - just different stages of the plants growth, so they all contain fluoride.

I can't seem to find a good alternative herbal tea.

Hi kuurt,

Could you include a weblink to where you read this about tea?

I like regular tea, but haven't really thought about the brand or different varieties. As for herb teas, I've tried catnip, peppermint, spearmint, chamomile, and lemon balm; catnip is my favorite, with chamomile and peppermint tying for second place. Catnip tastes somewhere between oregano and mint, which sounds weird, but it works somehow. Chamomile has a pleasant, delicate, lemony taste. I always have my tea without sugar or anything else; it might be interesting to try the herb teas sweetened, at least once, but I really prefer regular tea plain.

EDITED TO ADD: I just noticed this is the raw food forum... Is tea "raw" if it's steeped in hot water?

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.

It wouldn't let me post links because I only have 4 posts. But if you just google "tea leaves contain fluoride" you'll find lots of articles about it. You can also google "fluoride and the pineal gland"

We have fluoride in tap water (in the U.S.), in most toothpastes, and in our tea and coffee.
