informal opinion poll

So, tell me, what is your favorite flavor/variety/brand of tea? Hot, cold, herbal, green, black, whatever. I've lately taken to drinking herbal tea and am looking for ideas and inspiration. No, I have most certainly not stopped drinking coffee, but got hooked on the more expensive stuff and about gagged when I purchased some Folgers a couple weeks ago, it just does not compare, so I have cut back on how much coffee I drink because of how much money I would otherwise be spending on it.

Anyway, leave your comments, PLEASE!!! And do tell what brand you like best, I've noticed a huge difference between supposedly the same tea that comes from different sources. For instance, Twinings makes the best chamomile, IMO, while Celestial Seasonings version is just gross, and the loose herb is totally different than either.

Oh, and to answer my own question, I'm really into Pau D'arco herbal tea by Traditional Medicinals. I don't like most of the flavored stuff, but all Bigelow teas are on sale at Food Lion and I got their Orange Spice and Earl Grey which I pretty much like. I've had better Earl Grey just can't remember what brand it was. :)

well... the best tea I ever had was in Russia. I've got a little bit that's old and stale (but I still drink it when feeling nostaligic). Otherwise, I love "zinger" teas... any one of 'em will do.
