What is your favorite tea? Why do you like that tea? I am beginning my own tea business, as I have found a fantastic dealer for gourmet teas. I know that my personal favorites are Oolong, Lemon-Grass and Black teas. My husband's favorite is English Breakfast Tea. I just want to know what is most popular to stock up on, or if there is a tea that no one carries that you love let me know!

I haven't tried Jasmine tea yet, I was debating which type of Jasmine I should try. It seems as though people either love it or hate it! Do you have a specific type of Jasmine you like?

I love Chai.....it's like having a dessert in a cup. With all the different flavors dancing around on you tongue it's hard not to think you are having something very special!

I describe Chai tea as Christmas in a Cup! It is relaxing and sweet and just reminds me of something that would be at Christmas time!

My favorite teas are green tea, lemon zinger, honey lemon ginsing green tea, peppermint tea, the peppermint and green tea mixed, and Earl Gray. I have not tried oolong or lemon-grass, but there is a bulk store close to where I live so I might see if it is offered there. I do not like Black Teas as I have a slight allergy to the tanin and can only take it in small quantities without getting a headache. Maybe you should try some ginger teas and fruit teas.

I believe they are specialty teas, sold in gourmet stores or herbal stores. Oolong is similar to the taste of black-tea, I am not sure if it has tanin in it though. But the taste is fantastic!

Well I love Green Tea and it's basically my favorite tea. I buy the ones from lipton that come in boxes and I could be buying up to two boxes every time I go and buy. I haven't heard of those other teas that you just mentioned but the Lemon-Grass sounds really good. Good luck in your business and I hope that it prospers and its fruitful.

Lemon-Grass is good for a sour stomach. At least in my case it was. It's a very lightly flavored tea sort of like chamomile. It's relaxing and refreshing, and helps with digestion. However, it's not good for women who are pregnant as it induces labor.

I usually get my tea's from World Market because they have a fantastic variety. I think cold tea is disgusting, but I absolutely love hot. My personal favorites are pomegranate-chamomille, chai and honey ginseng with a drop of honey in it.

Hi CherBear, what a pretty coincidence! My husband also is very fond of taking English breakfast tea. He prefers to take it in the morning. Besides he loves to take longjing the rest of the day. I like to take Chinese green tea, qiyedan which tastes a bit sweet but not the taste of sugar. Another is yiyeseng which is a long single leaf rolled up in a tiny spherical shape. It is bitter in taste so I just take a few fragment of it each time. To take it one or half an hour before bedtime could make me easily fall asleep.

I like Raspberry Tea. It is refreshing and it tastes good. I can add fresh cut lemons in it during the summer. It is also a good springtime treat as well.

I think that my favorite tea is Chai tea. I love it, but I like it the starbucks way, and i dont know if that is just the tea. I believe that it is the tea with milk, and something else. If you happen to know that would be great! When it comes to cold tea though I really like green, and white.
