If you just want one cup of loose tea, The Republic of Tea site has this cool tea ball with a handle. My dh and I use ours all the time.
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.

I just ordered their catalog. We can't find their writer's chai ANYWHERE around here anymore, so I was really glad to see it on their website!

Not tea, but hot drinks: my son has liked hot water with honey, sometimes with lemon added; hot apple juice and prune juice; and of course hot chocolate.

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 !

I haven't found a tea my ds doesn't like. Whenever he sees my cup he chants "gee gee" (can't say "t" yet ). The first time I made a smoothie he wouldn't even try it until I said, "would you like to taste mama's tea?" Then he reached for the glass. Now we call the smoothie "purple tea" (made with blueberries) and he gulps it right down.

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:thumb

Wow, wise one, kids don't? Because I think there are 40 listings of favorites. You work for Teavena? PS these kids are all teenagers/adults now.

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.


Visit the Holiday Helper thread and join in on the giving and fun! Loving and working with the plants. I have a store! or two!
