Rooibos cos it really isn't tea. in which case, there would be no tea left on earth oh dear.

EDIT: Oh i just found out this is true as well for the Yerbe Mate (which i did not know about before this poll)!

Hey, I like all teas (even the non-tea teas). I just like some better than others. And folks please don't bash the komucha. There are good and bad commercial versions, but like many good things, you can develope a taste for it and enjoy it even if at first you didn't.

Personally, the only tea I can't see myself even trying is the Bug Poop Pu!

Taste is a deeply personal and highly individual preference. Who can definitively declare what tastes "good" or "bad". I like almost all teas. Strangely I have these periods when I drink a certain kind of tea almost obsessively. Perhaps my least favorite so far has been Lapsang Souchong.
Drinking Spring Darjeeling (Adagio) right now.

I'd love to try it. I imagine it would be best used to wash down some casu marzu

some 07, I think, mengsa sheng in the gaiwan tonight. I've had this a few times but this is first time I've noticed an uncanny toffee character, strange but I like it better now, typically this is also the last of my stash of it. Just about to settle down and watch Animal House, I might go with Entropyembrace's tip and gear up for some tea & movie action.

I almost needed a none of the above option until I remembered this one flavored black tea that my mother gave me once. I found no good way to brew the tea no matter what I did. It was terrible and not fit to be called tea.

I am now drinking a Malty Assam. :D

I don't like any jasmine teas, I feel like I'm drinking perfume, nice to smell but awful to taste for me. :roll:

I will drink any tea thus far except flavoured white tea. Someone gave me a flavoured white tea as a gift and it was truly nauseating. It has turned me off flavoured white teas forever.

I forgot to mention those store bought, pre-made ice teas.
No thank you!
