Today's tea so far: 1 pint of yunnan black tea. That was really interesting. I didn't have time to drink it until it cooled down quite a bit. Almost every sip, I noticed different flavors, and they were all really fleeting. Definitely reordering this tea at some point, but I keep ordering new tea which slows down my consumption of tea I already have.

Anyways, April totals:

Black teas:
3 Ceylon
2 Yixing
3 Rwandan
8 Chinese black tea blend
1 Nilgiri
12 Masala chai
2 Charleston
10 Yunnan
4 Tanzanian
6 Keemun
1 Assam
1 Yorkshire gold

Other teas:
2 Longjing green tea
2 Generic green tea
3 dahongpao oolong
5 Camomile
1 Rooibos

66 pints of tea, averaging 2.2 pints a day.

late yesterday night's tea: 1 pint of chamomile.

today's tea so far: 1 pint of keemun black tea.

Anecdotal that chamomile makes you sleepy, but it doesn't do it for me. But I've noticed a pattern that on night's I've chamomile'd, I feel especially good after sleeping in. Might be coincidence, but I'll see if this pattern continues.

How would you explain to someone who had never had tea before what it tasted like?

My favorite way to have tea is with a chocolate chip breakfast scone. Ah... delicious...

yesterday night's tea: gongfu style with dahongpao oolong. Doesn't taste too different. There are noticeable subtle differences between each infusion, but its not something to die for. Caffeine really strong though.

Today's tea: 1 pint of yunnan black tea.

Black tea makes my stomach feel weird, so I generally avoid it. Flavored green tea is my drug. I also like the low caffeine concentration as too much gives me anxiety.

Anyone else got the green tea bug? What flavors ya like?

I don't particularly like flavored teas. I find the taste of tea is too masked by the flavors.

Today's tea so far: 1 pint of Assam black tea. Finally finished a tea from my cabinet. I might pick up some more once I cut down more of my other stock.

Anyone have any brand recommendations? I'm still kind of new to tea and I've only tried Taylors of Harrowgate, Qi Organic, and Lipton. Didn't think taste was very important so I decided to buy Lipton since it was cheap and they give you a lot, but good lord Lipton is absolutely disgusting. I still have most of it and plan on just tossing it as soon as I buy something else. Thought Taylor's was decent and Qi is quite good, best brand I've tried by a longshot.

Most of my tea is from Harney and Sons, which I buy online. I don't really buy tea from the grocery stores because there's no loose leaf. (bagged tea typically has tea ground into a dust, which can adversely affect the taste). I don't really have a gauge on what's good of the supercheap stuff that you can find almost anywhere. I like Taylor's of Harrogate's english breakfast.

Harney and Son's most popular stuff is their flavored stuff, since they're catering to a popular market, but they also sell a wide base of renown teas at reasonable prices. I mostly drink plain black tea.

Today's tea: 2 pints of Yunnan black tea.

Today's tea: 1 pint of Chinese black tea blend. Was running low on time this morning. Turns out with 3 min. brew time and lower brewing temp, it makes a very nice medium body, which is way more reflective of its good qualities than brewing it more stronger.

I've been at my parents house the past few days. No brewing filter, so I have to do it grandpa style. There isn't much selection to tea, but it's high quality because tea as gifts are pretty common.

Yes, tea is awesome. Confound those damned coffee drinkers and their endless wittering about "real" coffee and "which blend is best" and "not being them until they've had their coffee". Tea just soldiers on quietly, dignified, and being super.

Tea drinkers are the same because it's the caffeine that does that.
