Gunpowder Tea.

When it's good, it's very good. When it's bad or weak, it's very bad. TeaCo's is alright. Not great and I've had much better.

Mmm that's actually pretty interesting!  I'll make sure to try it when I get the chance.  Reading through that link also reminded me, Ceylon tea is yummy to!

When it's bad, it is AWFUL. Jesus, I've had a bad batch a couple of years ago and it was absolutely repulsive. I don't know what TeaCo's is (ehh..maybe that's stupid)..I always buy mine at a local 'alternative' store where it's "fresh" and all.

Sweet tea, iced tea (lemon) and green tea. One of my favorite canned brands is Arizona. I also love putting honey in my green tea.

Brand-wise, Stash and TeaCo are bloody amazing.  There's also a brand in Canada called Teaopia, for loose-leaf.  Just...everything is good.  Everything.

Especially their mateccino.  It's coffee AND a tea!

It's expensive, but once you get over 50 or 75 dollars, shipping is free. <3

Flavor-wise, I like orange essences and berries.  Tazo's "Wild Sweet Orange" is my new favorite right now.  It's a mixture of lemongrass, licorice root, and orange zest.

Sadly, Michi, I haven't been able to have a lot of it.  I just went to a tasting party where they had some, and I remembered the name.  (It's simple enough, really.)

Maybe I'll try some more.  You had a huge list.  Magnolia Ooolong seems nice.  (But either the site is down, or I can't access it.)

I go there a lot and get a lot of their teas since it's the only local tea shop for me. As for their website...*goes to it*...yeah, it appears to be down. I wish I could get there this week, because they are having a 10% off sale because they are moving their store. I'm really upset that they are moving. It already takes me an hour to get to them and now I'll never be able to go there. *sighs*

I love a good strong chai or green tea. I know a place that does an amazing mango tea too.

In the UK we are lucky to have so many great places to source our tea from. Teapigs is one of my favourites, they have some really interesting blends like popcorn tea (japanese pickers used to mix husks of rice with tea to bulk it out, which for some reason gave it a popcorn taste and smell). If they post to the USA I can't reccomend them enough.

For those who are approved, you can read a short article on teas for the Elliquian Herald:

As for me? I love Good Earth Spice tea as well as Tazo Passion. Yum, yum, yum!
