    haha yeah I just told them to suck it and kept drinking my tea. the best kind I've found so far is the Rooibos Red Tea by Tetley but it's the vanilla flavour. fucking good.

    In the winter I'll have two or three cups of herb tea a day, to stay warm. Nothing like a hot cup of tea with a little honey to warm you from your ears to your toes.

    We drank a lot of tea at home, mainly Peppermint. Which is funny, because I dislike peppermint candies for the most part.

    Now I probably drink more Green Tea. I drink coffee in the morning, maybe a 1 to 1 1/2 cups. Then I switch to tea.

    I drink a Diet Coke with lunch, usually, but I'm going to start weaning myself off of them, so I'm guessing tea or coffee will replace it.

    I love teas of all kinds. I just don't find myself making any at home, I get it when I go out.

    But I live in the south...where tea is accepted, especially sweet tea. Some of my friends are even into herbal teas...and 95% of my friends are straight ;)

    After water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. I work part-time in a tea shop and drink at least 5 cups a day. I won't make fun of you.

    I have 3 cups of tea a day! They say Tea has more caffeine than coffee but if I drink coffee it gives me the jitters - with tea it's just calm and soothing...

    I switch between green tea and Chai. I used to be razzed about it - but either it's getting more acceptable in general or I'm just getting older and people don't care about everyone conforming to the norm as much...

    I love coffee and I mean fucking love coffee, but I love tea just the same icon_biggrin.gif

    I am a tea enthusiast! My favorite tea is Darjeeling tea *nods* hands down the best tea in the world. I just bought some here in Germany its a bit more expensive but totally worth it icon_smile.gif and if you do go and try it make sure its the first flush darjeeling tea.

    I only drink tea, have never had a cup of coffee in my life. And I love all kinds of tea, depending on my mood and the time of day. Here is a web site which offers 350+ varieties, both loose and bagged, in some cases direct from the plantation. But there are plenty of good varieties in your local stores as well.

    Nobody gives a hard time about it...to my face.

    Lately I've been into putting four bags of green tea in 24 ounces of water and letting it cold brew in the fridge overnight, then it's ready for consumption in the morning (and throughout the day if you're a slow drinker, but I usually glug it all down during breakfast). It's a great way to enjoy tea in the summer!

    I have been drinking tea since I was a child. I wish I liked coffee, because it smells so good, but I can't get past the flavour (although I can eat it as a flavouring in things like tiramisu). I would have to say my favourite is Earl Grey. Regardless of the type, I always drink it black with no sweetener. However I don't like fruity herbal teas (I jokingly say "I'm a fruity tease, but I won't drink fruity teas!") -- it always makes me think I'm drinking some horrible cold remedy.
