Peppermint tea! It helps with my nausea. I put 1 tbsp of sugar in it and then 1 tbsp of Benefiber. I'm going to cut down on the sugar, though, it's too sweet. Without the sugar the Benefiber makes the tea taste gross.

emoticon Harney & Sons hot cinnamon spice (hot cinnamon sunset). It's sweet but has no sugar--tastes like red hots, even comes in decaf. Sometimes you can find it on sale at H&S. Share some with a special guy--the smell of cinnamon is irresistible to men for some reason. :-)

Any fruit-infused tea is so delicious. I found this green tea that's apple flavored, it's really good. I add a bit of honey as well.

I have a friend who enjoys berry teas, and she adds a teaspoon of fruit preserves to sweeten.

Ho hum. Favourite tea? That is an all-time difficult question.

I am intolerant to caffeine, so all these are either green or infusions (in other words, tea that has no tea leafs, like rooibush/red tea).

Pure peppermint is a good one, although be careful not to let it steep too long as it will easily be bitter. I like this to cure cravings for something sweet, as mint candy is my favourite vice.

Chamomile teas are good too, but many will make you sleepy.

Peach Passion from the London Fruit & Herb Company is awesome. As is their Sweet Peppermint, which will not go bitter on you regardless of how long you let it steep.

Turkisk apple tea is very sweet and another favourite of mine.

There are teas out there with toffee flavour too, but you need to experiment with those to find one you like as they vary greatly. They come in black and infusion.

I change my favourites every now and then, but these are the ones I keep coming back to.

I'm a big fan of rooibos tea, aka red tea. It's packed with anti-oxidants, but is caffeine-free, and has a mild taste, no matter how long it steeps. It's great with soy milk and honey, too.

I love all kinds of tea! My top favorites are:
1. Japanese Green
2. Brown Rice
3. Darjeeling
4. Chamomile
5. Mango

I get all my tea from a local tea shop where they have jars and jars of loose leaf teas. I just scoop up what I need! I love it because I get to try different teas without committing to a packaged amount.

I never met a tea I did not like..lol...

well some bergamot can be a little strong in certain blends..but anyway...

For relaxing I like yogi brand kava. Its like having a few shots without the cals or the disorderliness of the mind. I really love it for pms. I do tend to get sleepy on it and prefer a nap. But at the same time it gives me a clear head to get things done. Strange side effect is that i notice my veins are less bulged. My s.o. notices this too. We do not have high BP but it improves the smoothness of the skin on the back of the hands. Strange but wonderful.

I still like coffee to wake up with. There are so many different kinds...I think its good habit to keep if you leave it at a reasonable level. I prefer anything fair trade and dark roast. I love the taste of coffee and with dark roasts I can get more in before I hit the caffeine limit.

I got a Celestial Fruit teas mix the other day and so far the Peach one was very tasty. I used it to make iced tea.

Since I've been on SparkPeople, I have started drinking green tea daily. My favorite is Trader Joe's Jasmine Green tea - I don't even need to add Splenda it is so tasty.

I do love the taste of raspberry tea - although Teavana has a lot of good stuff. Lipton is good for bottled teas, and Bigelow has a lot of good flavors for any mood :)

I have a chocolate Yerba Matte that I like, as well as, alot of flavored green teas & herb teas, black tea is a little strong for me. Give yourself time to adjust to the change, sometimes teas take awhile to get used to, especially green tea. Also, White tea has the health benefits of Green tea, but doesn't have the strong "grassy" taste, so you might look for a white tea blend. Good luck, I'm definately aiming to drink more Green & White tea, but will probably make sun tea.
