Tea Scenes

When I was home over Christmas break, I think I must have had close to a cup of tea everyday. While I am a barista at Starbucks part time (and yes, enjoy coffee), I have always liked tea.

Last fall I saw a notice on a blog I follow that a company which sells tea were offering three tea bags of your choice for free, so when I was home I taste-tested them and was not disapointed.
The Christmas Tea was somewhat of a spicey nature. It almost reminded me of Chai.

I liked the Lady Grey alot. It was nearly identical in taste to their Earl Grey, but seemed to taste more floral or citrus like.

The Prince of Wales was a lovely flavor that seemed like a mix of PG Tips with other flavors.
Of course I have already mentioned Earl Grey (it's perfect with 2-3 tsp. of french vanilla coffee creamer in it) and PG Tips, but a few other favorites are:

Aveda's Comforting Tea
Mint tea (Celestial Seasoning's Green Mint tea is an excellent staple)
Good Earth Original
Harry & David's Pomegranate & Blueberry Green Tea
Roobios & Lemon Myrtle
Are YOU a tea drinker? What are some of your favorites?

The flavors you tried sound delightful! Especially the Christmas tea. Throughtout the Christmas season I drank "Constant Comment" tea from Bigelow. I enjoyed the spicy flavor. My favorite tea at present is Typhoo decaf. It is a really nice strong tea, but without all the caffiene.

I used to really enjoy black tea, but had to give it up because of the caffeine. My favorite at that time was a ginger peach flavor.

I've never been an exclusive flavor type of person, but that's all changed, I guess:). I never, ever get tired of the Bigelow brand of Mint Medley. I also like making tea straight from dried peppermint leaves. Yum!

Earl Grey is my favorite, and his Lady is not far behind on my list of favorites! Constant Comment is a favorite of my children for tea time.

I LOVE tea!!! I prefer organic, herbal tea, though ;)

Forgive me for commenting twice, but I showed this post to some friends, and they agreed with me: a nice picture of a tea cup where you see the steam rising...is exceptionally soothing! :) I'm enjoying local-grown, organic herbal tea as I write this :) Yummy!
