BYOT! Enter TeaChat here, you never know what you may find!


A few months ago, 90% of responders said they were drinking their tea alone, BUT TODAY, we want to know, do you prefer to drink your TEA alone?

New here, but here's my tea today ....

I usually drink my tea along, a respite from a busy house. Right now, I'm enjoying a cup of Citron Green while listening to Emiliana Torrini. The cup before this was Casablanca Twist. At a local shop this morning I had a completely horrid cup of Peppermint (taste grass) and this morning at home I had my usual pot of Irish Breakfast. Hope everyone has a good night.

I answered Yes/No. I like my tea time alone sometimes, and other times I like tea time shared. Both are very nice for different reasons like many said before. The reality is that most of my tea time is alone because my family doesn't like tea that much.

Guricha is in my cup.

Jerry Salfeld, I hear you are NOT the comedian... :lol:

Well, Kago leaf does make you untouchable...and invincible!

I cannot envy someone who is drinking Kago leaf...as long as I am drinking Kago leaf...

Touché and bottoms up!

I am so totally in thrall to this Yutaka Midori tonight I can't contain myself (no, that's not what I meant!) I guess I've been drinking Guricha, Kabusecha, Den's Maki, and Gyokuro Kim lately. They are all kind of smooth and sissified. Yutaka Midori is like going back to the hard stuff; it's a revelation.

Thanks Sal, I missed Trioxin's comment initially. I think "chicks" dig guys who smell good - period. A tea scent would be a plus. A niche tea scent - even better. Guys want girls to smell good, but they don't want to reciprocate? What's up with that?

Thanks Trioxin, you smell great! For me today a tea note based scent too, although not niche. It's JLo's Still which has notes of tea and sake.

At work now and testing Just4Tea TGY - Too roasted for me. Not my thing. Smoky, charcoal with a bite. The leaves smelled like coffee to me. I had to toss the first steep. This one is at least drinkable.


It's good to know I'm not the only fragrance freak out there.
