there's also a thread on the Herbal section which you may find helpful.
as for me, i too, enjoy the peppermint and chamomile w/ honey. i've also tried hops but you really need to be careful about the steeping time (not too long) and balance it w/ some sweetness. i confess to still using tea bags especially for blends such as "bedtime", "cold/throat comfort", etc. i'm not keen on fruity flavors though.
as for being "better", i think it all depends on your thirst.
