Find yourself dipping into the lipton when no ones around?

Five Roses. In fact, I'm sipping some right now. :oops:

It's basically the South African version of Lipton, but it's tasty and easy to make in my travel mug at work. :)

I absolutely adore Tazo Calm.

To this day it's one of my favorite go-to drinks.

Occasionally I will indulge in flavored teas. I also enjoy trader joes pomegranate white tea bags.

Edit: Great thread by the way, I was just thinking it would be nice to have a thread like this.

Your current avatar really suits the thread title, you know. :lol:
Anyway, no. I take pride in staying away from tea bags, flavoured teas, sugar and the like.

Ok, I must admit I had a tea bag or two of mint-flavoured Ceylon with a friend two days ago. But dammit, it was five in the afternoon, cold winds were howling and she kept staring at that bar with such a begging puppy look. :oops:

I'm new to the whole loose leaf thing, and I have a lot of Celestial Seasonings bags to use up. But my husband likes herbal tea, so he'll help. And at least, unlike some of Teavana's flavored teas (i.e. "Rooibos Lemon Lime Kampai") tea is the first ingredient with the flavored Celestial Seasonings teas!

OK, I'm off to brew some unflavored, loose leaf black tea from Adagio! Just got my delivery. My first loose leaf tea order, from Teavana, was mostly flavored. "I paid how much per ounce, and the first ingredient is apples??" I'm learning...
