I had a friend who didn't drink coffee or tea but I cured her, later on she worked for a major coffee company and now she's addicted. To think, I started it all drives tears of pride down my cheeks. So my fab five are:

1. Fortnum and Mason Classic Earl Grey
2. Twining Earl Grey (sorry Stephen but noone beats F&M)
3. Fortnum and Mason Chai Tea (even the tin box is a work of art)
4. Assam with lemon
5. Gunpowder with fresh peppermint

All of the above with insane amounts of sugar. The upper three with milk. Normally white sugar so as not to spoil the aroma. However, the last one is even better with brown sugar.
And people who drink Roibos should ask for professional help. Tea should be black as the Marlboro's mans lungs (I do no Gunpowder's green, every rule needs an exception) and only mildly flavoured. Strawberry, rhubarb or marshmallow flawour are acceptable for sticky deserts not tea. It's bad enough Starbucks has taken something as enjoyable as a Latte and turned it into a Hazelnut Cinamon Delight.

I'll never understand this strange prejudice some people have against flavoured hot beverages. I think they're wonderful and can't get enough. I love fruity hot infusions and mochas with flavours such as banana, coconut and caramel. It's great to have so much choice. I feel really spoilt and struggle to choose most of the time.

Assuming direct control...

I love hot teas. My husband won't let me buy any more because we have an entire cabinet full of it and I always want more. My favorites are (not in order):

1. English Breakfast (sugar and milk)
2. Irish Breakfast (sugar and milk)
3. Lady Grey
4. Nutcracker Sweet (by Celestial Seasonings)
5. Winter Dream (by the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf)

Yum yum, I think I'm going to have some. Hmmm... What to choose tonight...

I'd just like to say Yorkshire is great (yes, you have guessed it, i come from South Yorkshire X-D ) The tea is good, but I'm a bit of a Twinnings girl myself, but i have to say Revolution tea from Holland and Tea Pigs are pretty good too.

Assam tea!

depending on the cup size, with 1 and a half sugars and skimmed milk ( i kid myself that the tiny amount of fat in the milk cancels out the 20kcal-per-teaspoon-sugar)

Any decent Earl Gray with a little milk.
Orange pekoe because I'm a bit of a traditionalist and it reminds me of my Nana.
Japanese green tea, the Chinese kind is alright but I prefer Japanese.
Lemon ginger
Traditional chai
Milky bubble tea with half pearls (not tea, I know)

Are we including Herbal Teas? I suppose so.

Okay:

1) Earl Gray (obviously)
2) Dr. Stuart's Detox
3) Peppermint
4) Chai
5) Lady Gray

Although I must say I usually mix Earl Gray and Lady Gray together. It's just delicious.

1. Blueberry
2. Gardenberries
3. Cactus
4. Rubarb with cream (sounds weird but I like it)

Um...Surely I can't be the only person on here who doesn't really care for tea?
I'm more of a coffee fan

Ack, I forgot to mention peppermint.

Help, I think someone at the beginning of this topic also does not like tea too much. So you're not alone after all.
