a new tea thread cuz surely one exists

Recommended Posts

im going to get out the mortar and pestle and grind spices for a chai that is also sort of a tonic, then you boil it with ginger.  found it in my recipe box because i have one of those.  its great for upset stomachs and is a "warming" tea good for winter blah blah blah


what tea do you drink?  do you drink any kind of specialty beverages?  crazy kale shakes?  apple cider vinegar?  cayenne and honey?  my go-to morning tea is Irish Breakfast. : )

darjeeling is the best but you really should have that 1 with milk and sugar.

loose leaf from the farmers market tbh if I'm going for standard black tea, but I have many varieties of tea, loose leaf and bagged

sugar intea Ilis for scumbags tbh

i stopped putting sugar in tea and coffee a year or two ago but occasionally if I'm having a fruit flavor I will sweeten it to enhance the fruitiness. I don't really drink fruit flavored teas that often though

Yeah chai goes well with sugar

And if I'm having black tea a little milk is nice but not mandatory

Green tea is pretty great. I drink enough coffee that I'm more likely to have a green tea later in the day than I am to have a black tea. Loose leaf green tea is sooooo much better than bagged, it never gets bitter and it's actually almost sweet

At the coffeeshop today they were advertising matcha packets to put in a bottle of water and shake? So I got one to try we'll see

ok so after having this sitting in my office for just over a year I was finally in the mood to try it and it's honestly quite good!

i looked at the website and it's a little expensive but so easy to make that I may just buy some more. I also saw they had sencha packets that are cheaper so I may get those to try...

Then I started going down the rabbit hole of teas and I kind of want them all I'm having a hard time narrowing my order down! I mean I get 15% off my first order so it's like if I'm gonna buy stuff no time like the present but do I really need this much tea?


cocoa mint

silver needle white tea

matcha genmaicha

sakura black tea

Turmeric ginger

valerian dream 



i did actually buy these packets and am still drinking them, they're good :W 

did end up buying a lot of those teas actually

^this turmeric ginger is so good for being sick I'm annoyed I forgot about it for the first few days, really hits the spot rn


im really happy with the rishi tea mug I bought with all that tea tho, it's got a screw in filter top so the loose let can be truly loose while steeping and in general I can just leave it in there and get 1-2 extra steeps if I do it within the freshness window so I get bang for my buck. also it stays hot so long, very well insulated. even when it's open it still manages to retain heat very well somehow

need to get back to the turmeric ginger bc this winter i always feel on the verge of sickness
