We got any teafags up in here?
>not drinking a nice warm cup of chamomile every night before going to bed


i do chamomile most nights, black tea for breakfast

i don't know a ton about tea but god if there isn't anything more serene than a hot cup of tea

I have been recently substituting green tea for energy drinks and i feel a lot better

English breakfast tea and Green tea.

I drink about 7 cups of tea a day. less as it gets warmer outside but not by much. with milk though sometimes black and definitely no sugar.

>tfw the local tesco only stocks twining's green tea.
I hate supporting imperialism.

Some cheap stuff I found at the local grocery store, Ginger and peach though, easy flavors.


jamaica tea all the way

>Tfw I live in Latin America, I tasted most delicious tea.

Seriously, here we have a lot of plants to do natural tea, you can find one in somewhere (maybe not if you live in a big city) much better than bag tea more delicious.

Sometimes I love live here for things like this.


guatemala? when i went there i had the most fantastic, and flavorful teas. found out i'll be going back again this year

Hey I'm getting to be a teafag with my recent cold, past 3 weeks now


File: 1453938760043.png (186.22 KB, 300x300, untitled.png)

Teafags represent

Genmaicha has to be my favorite

Delicious toasted rice and high grade japanese green tea leaves… mmm…

Though if you've ever had gyokuro.. it tastes like whipped cream.

Sometimes they use gyokuro leaves for genmaicha, so it tastes like toasted whipped cream.



What are these things?

Northern lights tea? Ambrosia tea?

It sounds nice, but who makes that?


green and black tea, anything else is faggot shit

Hi /bm/

How do you prepare tea?


i'm maximum pleb and just heat water in the microwave :(


>heating water in a microwave
My sides have fucking ascended this is next level


>linden tea and a Pall Mall cigarette
Best combination for me.


Probably not the best for body and mind, but anyone put any booze in their tea?

I put some vodka in my green tea from time to time. Not half bad

Or I'll make a hot toddy with some scotch

I did once, don't taste bad, but personally I don't like liquor.
Some liquors taste good with Cinnamon Tea.


i bet fireball would be one of those liquors!


I once had cinnamon liqueur… Shit tasted so good.

As for tea, english breakfast is very comforting.
For the chamomile drinkers, here's a fun fact: chamomile can make you feel better when you have trouble digesting something. I have made many stomach aches go away drinking it, though I sometimes wonder if it's a placebo effect, since it's a remedy my family taught me.
Mixing it with a teaspoon of honey and lots of lemon juice can help with sore, tight throats.


>sore throats

"ACV" is the treatment for that, anon.


But for upper respiratory problems, one that never fails to clear things up is a tea made of garlic, raw onion, and ginger. I normally add honey to it, but it has worked for me.


We actually don't have cider in my country. Not on a widespread level, at least. It's a fairly expensive drink.
By ACV, do you mean that the three ingredients have to be mixed together somehow, or are they consumed separately? Though either way, I'd never consume vinegar outside of a salad or a lentil soup… Lemon is better, since it also gives you that extra vitamin C. And honey has natural antibacterial properties while also tasting deliciously sweet.

Mixing garlic and onion is unfortunately a surefire way to get a stomachache for me… I can't digest them too well. And their pure combined taste sounds too intense for my tastebuds. I admire your tongue's capabilities.
I definitely want to try pure ginger with honey and maybe a dash of lemon though.

I just tried some valerian root tea for the first time and it was pretty good
I bought in on a whim because I remembered hearing online once that it was good for anxiety. I looked it up and found that it has something in it that works in the same way as benzos do in your brain, which is interesting. of course this effect is very weak but I do feel generally relaxed right now. I also hear it's good for sleep.
Warning if you're thinking of getting this stuff, it stinks really bad, smells like feet (unless you're into that kind of stuff I guess) but it tastes much better than it smells. I put a little bit of honey in mine too and it was great.


Tried ginger tea recently, it was good, really good.




Drinking tea feels really nice!


Tea is good. Nice and warm, especially in these cold winter months.

I'm not really a tea fag but I want to be. I usually just drink lipton with some sugar in it (Made from hot tap water, is that bad?). What are some recommended tea's for a wannabe-tea fag?

What do the ones on top mean, wouldn't they blend with the bottom tea, or is that just saying "Mix it together dumby"?


it's just to visualize the proportions, so it's mixed, yes.
do you mean hot tap water without boiling it? most teas are best when steeped in water that is boiling hot. some teas are more delicate and need a lower temp, but don't worry too much about that starting out.
you should start with the classics (english breakfast, earl grey, jasmine, a plain green like sencha), then try different single origins (ceylon, assam, dajeerling) to get an idea of what you like. also try different single-herb teas if you're into that (chamomile, peppermint, chrysanthemum, hibiscus) before trying blends or you could make your own.
i'm only scratching the surface here but i hope it gets you started.


>Do you mean just hot tap water without boiling it
Yeah, I usually don't make a pot of tea
Thank you for the suggestions Anon!

Green tea is a must for me every morning. I love how it keeps my weight down, helps me feel refreshed, and overall makes me feel very healthy. I love you, green tea!

Drinking a cup right now. But I drink plenty of tea while I try to get comfy and sit online.


Today I'm having a nice russian caravan blend, it is very tasty. The smoky flavor brings me back to camping with my family as a wee lad.


File: 1530986132036.jpg (115.23 KB, 850x638, __bellezza_felutia_origina….jpg)

I usual have darjeeling or genmaichai in the morning, this bagged (sorry) herbal tea that helps with my allergies i get at the store at some point in the day, and then at night i have a mix of chamomile, catnip, and peppermint to help me sleep! I recently found out my local grocery store sells bulk herbs for super cheap so I've been getting a ton there and trying all sorts of blended herbal teas lately!


Herbal tea sounds good. Have you ever tried black current tea? It's the one of best tasting teas I've ever had.


I unwittingly drank a delicious peppermint laxative tea last week

The brand is "Smooth Move" lol

I recently got into loose-leaf tea, I think my favorite tea (not counting stuff that I don't currently have) is lychee congou. I need to find more tea without caffeine though, I only have rooibos to drink at night. What's everyone's favorite kind of caffeine-free tea?


File: 1531229329039.jpg (92.13 KB, 896x504, barley-tea.jpg)

chamomile is very tasty and can help calm your nerves a bit. roasted barley can be made into a tea. it has a nice savory almost soupy taste and pairs well with a sweet dessert. hojicha is a nice savory tea as well. while it's technically a green tea, it has some caffeine, but it is less stimulating than black tea.


File: 1531262049138.jpg (266.54 KB, 1920x1080, 1530493266234.jpg)

I drink one or two pots of green tea a day. Just put the pot on a stove, and 3 minutes in I'll put it in the bag and let it seep while the pot is being heated up. When it's done I'll burn some cheap incense, and sit down listening to music, while reading or lurking.
It's the only thing I can stand the taste of lately since I have been trying to break myself of soda for my teeth. Used to drink a lot of lipton but I can't anymore because it tastes too acidic, and there's too much sugar in it. Tea is meant to be drank without any sugar.


you should try doing that with loose tea, it's one of the best ways to make tea because the leaves have a lot of space to float around and give off a full body of flavor. i wish my family was into plain green and black teas so i could make a big pot of it each morning as a little ritual


I'll have to get into that then at some point. Right now I'm just drinking the Yamotayama nip import brand from the stores. I like it a lot better than Bigelow. So when I get through my current 3 boxes I'll give that a try. Any good brands?

I order from Adagio a lot because it ships from my state, but it is a pretty good balance between quality and price if you're looking to try a lot of different kinds or for buying samples. Tealyra is pretty good for plain chinese/japanese teas in my experience. Teavivre is great for high quality chinese teas. You may have had Stash tea before if you usually buy from stores, they are usually sold as bags but you can buy loose tea from them online and I've heard it's decent quality.
