    I was recently introduced to the world of loose leaf tea and have come to enjoy trying new teas and mixing favorite types together. A mug of tea now has a place on my desk.

    Just curiously, anyone else have an interest in tea?

    Nope. Don't like tea or coffee.

    I like my tea just like my women. Cold & bitter.

    Ive tried some teas that were good but then it became a hassle to make and I went back to water.

    I drink 2 of these every morning. Once in a while I'll drink 3.

    :)

    Tea, sometimes water, and sometimes cashew or almond milk is all I ever drink. Don't drink soda (unless it's Fresca mixed with alcohol, lol).

    I like a little tea with my ice. Straight up, no lemon, no sugar.

    Sometimes I can go for hot tea, but have never been into loose leaf tea. I do, however, like honey in hot tea.

    I waffle between bagged and loose. Teavana has some cool concoctions, but they can get pricey. Though with the tins you can get it in, I think it can last a few months or year.

    There are some other tea shops around. I think there's one at Tempe market place.. Not sure if Duck n Decanter is still open.

    I rarely drink bottled tea as most of it is 'instant' tea. Or has crap added.

    Einstein's used to have a green tea, ginsing, honey mix that was amazing, but they no longer have it.

    As for bagged, I've always liked Stash, but it's becoming hard to find. The Moroccan mint is my favorite.

    The yogi peach detox (bagged) is by far the worst tea I've ever drank. It's like liquid fart.

    My one binge spend is Matcha Green Tea. It isn't everyone's cup of tea but I do like it.

    I've gone the Teavana route, it is pricey but, for right now, totally worth it.

    Same. Dumped soda, it's now water, black coffee, or home brewed tea. A little Arnold Palmer is an occasional guilty treasure.

    I really like loose leaf tea. I keep one a thermos with a tea ball; it's awesome.

    I have lowered my soda consumption by a lot and replaced it with tea. Love QT's unsweetened ice teas a lot. Love hot tea too but more so in the winter.

    Pineapple Papaya is good. If you have a Samurai Sams near your work, they have this unsweetened blackberry jasmine tea that is awesome.

    I love me some sweet tea from Chick fil a. Can only have it every once in awhile because there has to be tons of sugar in it

    I like the sweet tea at Culver's.

    Come to think of it, I like pretty much everything at Culver's.
