My family did not drink tea growing up, so I have no idea how to make a pot of tea. I want to learn, but I'm still looking for the perfect tea pot.

This makes the best iced tea (we don't even have to add sugar or honey).
We also like green tea, chamomile, lemon tea and anything fruity !
Thanks for all of the suggestions of other teas to try. I'll be filling up my cart at Whole Foods this weekend. Fall and tea just go together!
Honestly kids that age dont really enjoy tea try hot chocolate. Or at teavena they have this tea that tastes like hot chocolate it is called white chocolate peperment tea. If you add a little bit of milk into it it tastes really good
Most mornings I take two wide-mouth quart jars and put about 4 or 5 Tbs. of herbs in each, then boil a big kettle of water and let it all steep for a bit then strain the teas into another quart jar. We drink tea instead of water much of the time. We usually end up drinking it at room temperature but if you wanted it warm you could just heat it up later. I prefer the taste of bulk herbs also, like a pp said, but it sometimes seems like a bit of a hassle to make just one cup with bulk herbs so this system works for me.
My main herbs are raspberry, nettle, oat straw, mint, alfalfa, lemon balm ... hmm, what else. BTW, ds loves all of it .. he likes it better than water. Hibiscus has a nice sweet and fruity taste ... lemon grass, licorice is sweet and very yummy.
This is what we do. Only ours sits over night and most often includes nettles.
