I absolutely love Earl Gray with vanilla creamer. But I tend to drink more green tea.

I like them both, but I haven't really found many teas I dislike. Earl Grey is one of my favorites... Not much I like better in black teas, except lapsang souchong.

Have you been to that tea shop in Old Town?

Nope, never heard of it. Is it on college or more toward Linden?

It's "Happy Lucky Tea Shop" just off College at 236 Walnut. I haven't bought tea there (yet!); just stopped in to have a latte with my daughter on a blustery day. They have a wall of jars of loose tea for sale in bulk. I think they'd be good

for helping explain different types of tea. I don't remember how their prices are.

Not green. Not ever green. What's wrong with regular old Lipton tea bags? They worked just fine for generations.

Tastes like steeped cardboard after you've had decent loose-leaf tea. Well, to me anyway.

It does take a lot of sugar for me to like it, but having grown up with it, it's what tea tastes like to me.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm not sure what caused me to venture further out than that, myself.

I know my parents started drinking tea when we lived in England, and still do having never switched back to coffee. I'm pretty sure it was Lipton tea bags there too. As an adult in Germany, tea balls and pretty harsh tea was more common than bags.

*were. I just remember it being really strong and bitter.

Lipton in England? Sacrilege. I'd imagine Tetley or PG Tips (comes in an interesting pyramid shape for better flow-through). I like both of those, actually. And yeah I *do* use Lipton sometimes, although mostly the big bags for making iced tea. I'm

not a total tea snob, just mostly. I just think that other types, & especially loose-leaf teas, have better flavor.

My least favorite two teas.

Green is alright with a thousand cups of sugar in it.

What other kind of teas are there? Maybe I should branch out.

I drink a lot of herbal teas (peppermint, chamomile, cinnamon), there are fruit teas (which I'm not as big a fan of, except apple is pretty good), other black teas in general, I drink chai on occasion...there are lots!

I can't imagine putting sugar in green tea.

Yeah, they do that at restaurants. Iced and sweetened. Overly sweetened in most cases. I never put sugar in my hot tea, but I do occasionally when iced.
