    So do you do tea? I don't. Occasionally I can do iced tea. But really only the flavored stuff like SNAPPLE. Regular iced tea doesn't do it for me.

    I like Iced Tea only ... not hot tea.

    Also I am more fond of Green Tea than "regular" tea. Especially with a touch of honey.

    However I never make my own. I just buy it pre-sweetened.

    My favorite is the Arizona brand Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey.

    It comes in a couple of different sizes but here is a common size:

    Just iced tea, and instant at that. With a little lemon juice and artificial sweetener added.

    Green tea with honey to pick me up in the morning. Black coffee to keep me running thru the day. Single Malt to make me relax in the evening.

    Sweet iced tea and lots of it. Here is how that came to be. In most restraunts coffee and tea are free refills, ice tea included. So being the cheap bastard that I am...

    It is interesting that alot of places in the North only serve unsweetened tea, add your own sweetener, while in the South you would have to almost specifically ask for unsweetened rather than sweetened.

    I am not brand consious nor do I even care (varity is a good thing) only that it is fresh and crisp. Sweet tea is like the perfect medium for growing all kinds of nasties and goes bad fast. (Maybe why they don't keep it up north)

    Too sweet is no good either and way too common, it shouldn't crunch or go down like syrup, just enough sweetener to knock off the edge of bitterness. Some times, if I know that a place has a reputation for overly sweet, I will ask for "half and half". It wouldn't seem like too complicated of a request, but I have actually had a server at a fast food place put like five little dairy creamers on the tray. I don't know who was more confused, her or me. I mean, I do put cream in my hot tea. Well, rather than try to break down the language barrier I just took my order and sat down, with all of the witnesses thinking is was a freak or something.

    I will drink the bottled green teas and other concoctions and I haven't drank much hot tea and toast since I left the lands of snowdrifts, but I do on rare occasions, boil up some sasafrass roots and drink it with a touch of honey.

    Now just to be gross, a buddies wife brews some stuff that makes E-lax look like concrete. I took a sip, felt the warmth as it traveled down my throat and to my stomach, and it just keep going! I can laugh now, but it is not funny at the time, when you can't keep the back door slamed shut and stinking up a freinds house is so embarrassing.

    But I can't vote in this one!!

    I may be British, but 'almost never' isn't good enough for me. I NEVER drink tea and never have done. I cannot stand the smell of the stuff and, as it is pretty nigh on impossible to drink something without putting it directly under your nose, I've never even got close enough to find out what it tastes like.

  13. *HUGE* tea drinker.

    Hot with a splash of milk.

    Prepared with *boiling* water, preferably using loose tea leaves in a proper pot.

    None of this chai shite. Or iced muck. Or tea bags claiming to be "British Breakfast" or "Irish Breakfast" - too insipid.

    Just finished a cup of PG, in fact.

    No-one in America has ever tasted real tea. The only blended tea worth drinking is Brooke Bond PG tips. (The "PG" stands for Premium Grade).

    The only pure (unblended and favourite of professional tasters) tea is Assam, but it has an extremely bland taste and needs to be made at least double strength to be enjoyed.

    For those with an aversion to loose tea leaves I recommend the Russell Hobbs "Two Cup" tea and coffee making filter machine. I find it produces tea of exactly the right strength and temperature in just a few minutes with a minimum of fuss, albeit in tiny quantities.

    About 1970 when coffee was 3 pounds of good ground coffee for $1, there was a freeze or something in Columbia and coffee shot up to $9 for 3 pounds. I figured everyone would switch to tea and the price of tea would shortly rise too, so I went out and bought 6 cases of cartons of boxes of tea bags. (Lipton) Thought I might sell some of them when the price went up, but just kept drinking it instead. Finished the last of it off about a year ago.

    Yes & Yes, I don't drink much hot tea but do like it lots. As for Iced Tea, I'm a Southerner so I drink it by the 55 gallon drumfull. I drink sweet tea but order it unsweetened and add the artificial sweetener later. Can't go wrong w/iced tea.

    later

    I have a major weakness for oolong tea, but I also drink large anounts of black, green and darjeeling. Most blended/flavored teas, esp. Celestial Seasonings, must be steeped interminably to extract even the meager amounts of flavor you wind up with. Some of the Bigelow and Twinings offerings suffer from a "tea-baggy" flavor, but some Cantonese restaurant and shops carry better teas, especially oolong and darjeeling (Fujian oolong is pretty fine and is carried by a lot of shops). Tazo, who markets a very good green tea called Chinese green tips, also makes a seasonal holiday blend, "Joy," that is as delicious (during the yuletide) as it is hard-to-find (between February and November), so stock up!

    Some things have an aquired taste, if it doesn't taste all that good to start with, why keep drinking it?

    I like a lot of herbal teas and my favorite is Candy Cane tea. It has a vanilla and peppermint flavor. So good. I also like other mint medleys and green tea.

    You guys have reached a new low in boring questions. If this is somehow related to video I'm having trouble making the connection.

    However, here are some suggestions for the next poll:

    What type of toilet paper do you prefer?
    Do you floss?
    What is your limit for the number of days wearing the same underwear?
    Ever eat breakfast for supper?
    Are you a nap taker?

    I'm going to go time how long it takes a glass full of water to evaporate now.
