My favorite is Green Pu-Erh tea.



Interesting. I've tried black pu-erh but not green pu-erh.

Pu-Erh is the beginning of tea neurosis and leads one down the same road of madness of oenophilia.

The Green is not fermented very long and has an almost citrusy taste, while maintaining the ridiculously high caffeine content and potency of Pu-Erh.

That's pretty hardcore! I once tried a bark tea (can't remember what type) and I couldn't take a third sip.

Oh wait, slippery elm bark tea is pretty great, though. At least it is very soothing for a sore throat.

Varies widely. Depends how the region, fermentation process, year, how long it has been aged. Some general comments can be made, but it really is like oenophilia. It starts to approach something you do not drink "to drink" but to appreciate, even if that appreciation is something that tastes like moss-covered cedar with hints of clay and three day old raccoon carcass.

But what you are going to get for less than hundreds or thousands of dollars per ounce ain't going to be too complex ;).

Jasmine, jasmine, and every once in a while I'll have jasmine.  I also like Thai iced tea (don't know exactly what it is but its red-orangeish and has some form of sweet condensed milk in it.  I also like very heavy black tea with cream and sugar some times.

I usually drink green tea with some agave nectar added for sweetness. Some mornings I do the Irish Breakfast tea as posted above...
Also, I got hooked on chai while I was in Iraq. One of the Iraqi Police chiefs would always bring out the chai any time I showed up at his station, mainly because I was the only one who would actually sit and drink the stuff with him - the rest of my squad thought it was too hot to drink tea  ???

I have some Nepalese (probably identical) chai powder... it's awesome. You can cook with it or put it in drinks, either way, it's good!

Plus, the only good drink that has black pepper in it.  :)

We drink a number of different teas; despite their variety of flavors, sources, and presentations, I still gravitate back to Constant Comment as my favorite (with honey, and sometimes Metaxa).

I like earl green and earl white teas a great deal.

My kids are big tea fans as well now. They aren't given straight juice real often. Normally I mix half juice with half green and earl grey tea for them. This drastically cuts down on the sweetness and it tastes wonderful. It also nips any sugar cravings in the bud very quickly.

The Vashon Monks now offer tea AND coffee if you are looking for an Orthodox source for good tea.

Quinault, mixing tea with juice sounds amazing. I need to replace my Pepsi craving, but I finish juice way too quickly. Cutting the juice with tea should do the trick!

No offense to some, but green tea is about as appealing to me as green meat.  

Have you prepared green tea properly? And there are many varietials. With some varietials, you only steep for 45 seconds maybe at 165F.

With your non-fermented teas, you do need a decent thermometer (better yet a thermocouple) to get a knack of how long it takes the boiling water to cool (and yes cooled boiled water is better than water heated just to the right temp) and a careful eye on the clock.

I've disabused many of their distaste for the greens by proper prep and using less "grassy" varietials.

Don't tempt me.  I have enough time/space consuming, eccentric hobbies and interests as is.  A thermocouple?  Was that what was broken on the Millennium Falcon's hyperdrive?

Plus, I'm pretty content with my black teas.  That said, I'll plead ignorance on the green tea front, and refrain from saying anything else bad about them.  Perhaps if I make it to the S. Ohio meetup, I'll take you up on the lesson.

^ They are very beautiful in the pot, but to me, I feel like I am drinking perfume. Some of them are very strong. Jasmine is my favorite, though. I recall even seeing some of them in Target for about $15 for 10 or so. Not too bad for a novelty thing, especially if you brew a glass pot of tea when guests are over or when you are celebrating something.

The box makes it look quite enticing. I'd like some, as well.

I heard there was such a thing as Green Rooibos; that's Rooibos that hasn't been oxidized and looks like grass clippings.

still want to try it someday...

I got it at a local Middle Eastern food market.
