    Yes, this is the ultimate affirmation of my homosexuality, but oh well. I have had several conversations with guys on here and tea has popped up every now and then. A really good friend of mine sales loose leaf tea. IGNORE The awful sound affects and order some of her stuff, it really rocks.

    What does tea have to do with being gay? My father drinks tea, as do most of the people inhabiting Asia and the UK. Coffee is primarily an Americas and African thing. (If I am not mistaken). I was raised on tea, so I drink it... and only loose tea!

    I drink so, so, so much tea...it is my favourite type of drink above all others.

    Earl grey and soy chai are my staples (green leaf chai that is, I'm horribly snobby about it, and can't stand powder or syrup chai "drinks")

    I also love jasmine tea and this ridiculously named but seriously delicious blend by T2 called red green aloe spirulina beet barb which I think is a mix of green tea and flavoured rooibos.

    Half the reason I dislike living in Sydney is because cafes here serve tea bag tea...

    Lemon ginger. With fresh grated ginger and fresh-squeezed lemon juice, steeped in a pot, with fresh honey that your uncle gets for his hives. HEEEEEAVEN. icon_smile.gif But some peppermint will do in a pinch.

    Definite tea snob here. I get all my tea from
    TeaSource. They deliver and it's the best tea I've ever had. I've got a travel mug from them that say "Don't even THINK about putting coffee in here". icon_biggrin.gif

    I know this is probably sin saying this on a fitness board, but I love sweet tea. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    I love Chinese flower green tea, and Bankok green tea...I get almost a euphoric/hallucinagenic effect, a moment of zen, complete oneness with myself and the universe...a total body lifticon_biggrin.gif

    the Republic of Tea has some really good ones. I like the Blackberry Sage best personally, Mango Ceylon taking close second.

    I like Yerba Mate but the health risks kind of scare me.

    Masala chai - delicious. (Chai Tea if you order it at a coffee house).

    I hope it isn't just my age *gasp* but I am starting to enjoy tea more over coffee. It may be a phase. I like reading everything here it helps choose my next flavors.

    I had pretty much lost my taste for yerba mate, and when I learned that it may possibly be carcinogenic, I stopped drinking it altogether.

    Wow, this reminds me of a conversation with a guy who thought he was too masculine for the rest of the world.. it went like this..

    Nick: "I'm going to make some tea"
    SuperUltraMasculine: "Tea? Who the fuck drinks tea?"
    Nick: "Um, billions of people."

    I have been a tea fan for about 25 years now. I usually have 20 different varieties in my cupboard at any given time. Today I had a mint kombucha tea and a mayan cocoa spice tea. I am going to make another cup in a minute.

    I like Republic of Tea also. I have been trying Yogi teas lately. Of course there is always good ole Celestial Seasonings as well as Lipton and the like.

    I grew up in Africa drinking tea, especially Rooibos. Now you tell me tea is for sissy nancy boys? Who knew?

    For those guys (you know who you are) who are clinging to their fragile masculinity like Kong clung to the Empire State, someone had better post a butch list of safe food and drink......and warn them against those dastardly substances that will make their balls shrivel and force them to speak with a lisp.

    Ive heard that overexposure to tea tree oil and lavender actually can shrink your testicles.... though it definately was not from a reputable source.

    Tea is great. . . I prefer to consume mine the alternative way. green tea leaves with chili and garlic, my favorite condiment.

    Tea tree oil is from a different plant than the one we get tea leaves from.
