And do you most often buy organic or not?<br><br>
I like peppermint best with some honey, and really liked the Chocolate Yerba Mate I got from Teaopia. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy">:

Sorry, meant to add 'fruit' teas/infusions as well. I'm not sure how to fix the poll so just include it in herbals I guess. Or under other *shrugs*

I'm eagerly waiting for other peoples' responses. I've always liked the *idea* of drinking tea, but I'm having a hard time finding something I like. Just this week I bought some Jasmine green tea that's not bad.

I love black tea. Sometimes I'll drink green tea-- it feels more relaxing. When I'm pregnant, or if I don't want caffeine, I like rooibos. Sometimes it is organic but most often it's just what I find in the grocery store.

I love tea and drink it all day long. I especially love Irish breakfast tea (for black tea) and Jasmine tea (for green). Numi's jasmine tea (called Monkey King) is especially good. It's a little "heartier" (read: not as delicate) as many jasmine teas.<br><br>
My mother in law got me teaposy for my bridal shower and then some more for Christmas. I serve it when I have company so we can all watch the tea "blossom." It's like Sea Monkey's for grownups.<br><br>
I have a ridiculous amount of tea in my pantry. I actually need/want to give some away before it goes stale.<br><br>
I try to buy organic and in bulk, but sometimes I buy it at the local Chinese grocery store because it is so inexpensive.

I really should have checked all of them except for the Never/Sometimes Organic.<br><br>
All of my tea is organic and I really like it all.

Lurve green tea, do yerba mate (I actually drank it tons w/one pg thinking it was OK for pg then found out I probably shouldn't have...sigh......) and will drink most any hot tea-chais, flavored w/fruits, etc.. I do love to make green sun tea in the Spring and Summer, as my absolute fave. I need a new glass sun tea container for this coming season. My fancy shmancy martha one finally gave way last year. For me, sun tea is best w/9 bags, from 10:00 to 2:00 in full sun...mmmm, goodness.

I drink a <i>lot</i> of Earl Grey (a black tea) during the day. In the evenings it is always herbal teas - usually chamomile or peppermint (sometimes a mix of the two).

I drink Tazo tea from work. Yes, I'm a barista, and no, I don't drink coffee. I like Stash tea if its around. I hate buying tea since I get it for free at work.

I like herbal teas, especially the old classic Red Zinger. It still tastes like my childhood, in a good way.<br><br>
But, honestly, most of the time my tea is cold, with lemon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
