I don’t know about you, but I love tea! Hot tea, iced tea, Long Island Iced Tea! I usually end my day with a nice hot cup of PG Tips. Years ago when I was in the Air Force stationed at RAF Lakenheath, England I took up the habit of drinking tea which is a national pastime. I love it the English way, with sugar and cream… However, these days I use fat-free evaporated milk and Truvia sweetener. PG Tips is a strong, full-bodied tea. I have friends that drink it with lemon and sugar also.
There are so many different types of tea. I always thought there was a different tea for every mood you could have. Here is a list of some of the more common teas courtesy of the Teavana website at http://www.teavana.com/tea-info/types-of-tea: (Quote)
Green tea is the most popular type of tea, mainly because it is the beverage of choice in Asia. Some loose green teas are scented with flowers or mixed with fruits to create scented or flavored teas. Find out more about green tea or shop our Green Teas.
Oolong tea, also known as wu long tea, is full-bodied with a flavorful fragrance and sweet aroma. Most people commonly recognize oolong tea as the Chinese tea served in Chinese restaurants. Find out more about oolong tea or shop our Oolong Teas.
Black tea is the tea most people know since you likely grew up dipping tea bags of black tea in your cup (or enjoyed this tea from an iced tea pitcher in the South). Find out more about black tea or shop our Black Teas.
Herbal tea does not contain any leaves from the Camellia plant family, so it is sometimes referred to as a tisane. Herbal teas can be broken into three categories: rooibos teas, mate teas, and herbal infusions. Herbal infusions consist of pure herbs, flowers, and fruits. They can be delicious hot or iced. Find out more about herbal teas or shop our Herbal Teas.
Mate tea is considered the coffee lover’s favorite tea. Made from the leaves and twigs of the yerba mate plant, our My Morning Mate is a particular favorite of coffee drinkers because it tastes like coffee. Find out more about mate teas or shop our Mate Teas.
Also called artisan or flowering teas, these teas actually ‘bloom’ as they steep. They are hand tied by tea artists and often include some type of flavor or scent along with the beautiful design. These romantic teas make a great gift for your significant other! Shop our Blooming Teas.” (Unquote)
