    Now that the weather's cooler, many of you are probably drinking more hot tea. What are your favorites?

    I drink cold tea (green tea) a whole lot more than hot, but every once in a while, I feel like a cup or two, like tonight!

    In my cupboard are:

    Organic Echinacea Plus
    Caffeine Free Rooibos Leaf
    White Pear
    Serene Slumber Soothing Skullcap (caffeine free)
    Iced Passion Herbal Infusion

    My favorite right now is from Republic of Teas--it's Lemon Chiffon--so good, like you are drinking cookies! :)

    I love trying new teas. Will have to try some of the ones on your list. Right now I'm just drinking a generic herbal tea. Very boring!

    I have hot tea for breakfast every morning. I love Earl Grey breakfast tea. Right now I'm drinking Twinings Breakfast Tea.

    Earl Grey, strong.
    I'm trying to drink more green tea because I know it's good for me, but I don't really enjoy it.

    Anyone been to that retail store, Teavana? I should try them.

    I LOVE lemons, so I should try this!

    Most of those I haven't tried just yet, but they seemed good at the time I bought them!

    I've been to Teavana and got some of their samples that were brewed but I never bought any. I have to really like a tea to actually get buy a large amount of it or I will get tired of it quickly. We have a local gourmet store that sells loose teas that are really yummy like Red Velvet cake flavored, Almond cookie, and many other fruity flavors. I just get a few ounces to use with my tea ball and they last a while. There's a brand I get in the grocery store I get too but I'll have to look at the canister when I get home for the name of it.

    I had a yummy Chai-spiced sample from Teavana last weekend. I usually buy small packages of a couple of their blends for my mom and sister at Christmas. They both like herbal teas more than I do.

    I've been kind of interested in trying a Chai beverage, even the Chai latte at Starbucks.

    I believe I've seen green tea with bergamot, MrsC: that might help.

    Back in the day, I used to order tea from Murchie's. The oolongs I favored are now out of my price range, alas - but, golly, were they good!

    Although I'm not usually a fan of flavoured teas, chai is an exception. I make my own chai lattes (and omit all the sugar) by steeping a couple of chai tea bags in steamed milk.

    I love Twinnings Earl Grey!

    There's a good independent tea shop nearish me - the house blend is white, green, and rooibos with orange and some flower. It's outstanding.

    I looked at my favorite tea canister and it's Zhena's Gypsy Tea. I have the Coconut chai green tea and Coconut chai black tea. They are so good especially when I use coconut creamer with them.

    I have some herbal teas on the cupboard right now: honey vanilla and Sleepy Time and a variety pack.

    I don't usually drink black teas, but when I do I reach for Twinings Lady Grey or Prince of Wales.

    Robust black tea for me. I especially like the Irish breakfast from Trader Joe, which is what I have for breakfast and keep at school.
