Are flavoured teas a favourite of yours?

That wonderful brew known as 'tea' (in my opinion much preferable to coffee) now comes in a multitude of flavours. Personally, I don't like any of them. I prefer good, old-fashioned tea which tastes like tea - not a bowl of fruit!

Well, what is 'tea' in your opinion? Obviously, you only consider black tea as 'tea'. This, however, is a too restricted definition. Once we had an English language assistant at our school who told us that she didn't like the taste of tea. We found that surprising because we thought that all English people love tea. :-) It reminded her of dried leaves. I clapped my hands and said, "Bravo! This is the precise description of tea." All parts of a plant or a tree which you dry and on which you pour boiling water become tea.

@MALUSE Traditional, good, old-fashioned black tea was, of course, what I was referring to. Boiled tree bark doesn't appeal to me!

@ThreeTeddies What I find really vile is green tea. Do you like and drink it?

I drink green tea mainly . . . but I also drink herbal teas that are good for this or that healthwise. I like some fruity teas - like peach or pomegranate - but I don't drink them often.

@much2say You are very adventurous with your tea drinking. I'll stick to traditional black tea!

@ThreeTeddies Today I bought some lemon ginger tea! Sometimes I will take fresh herbs and steep them in hot water for 15 minutes . . . like thyme and oregano. Black tea is always good!

@much2say Couldn't be bothered with steeping for 15 minutes before I drink it. Black tea rules!

Well, I tried some new varieties of flavours during years, just to make sure how they tasted and, like you, I returned to things that I like. I'm not always happy how tea is expensive, unlike coffee. They should be equals

@moonandstars I'm quite willing to pay a little extra for my favourite brew!

I like flavored tea but I am not sure how it happens that i don't taste the flavor that is on the box. I am using sweet tea now but it tastes like regular tea to me.

@sharon6345 Stick to plain black tea - you can't beat it

I am a coffee drinker, but do enjoy a cup of green tea, jasmine, or rose especially at a high tea.

@JudyEv Earl Grey is particularly perfumey (if that's a word)

I find that those so-called teas tend to smell really nice but taste like hot water.

I do not drink tea. For some reason, tea has never appealed to me.

@marguicha Never liked Earl Grey. Coming from Scotland my preference is, of course, Scottish Blend!

Not really. I like plain black tea with honey and cream.

@CarolDM Never tried black tea with anything other than milk. I will put cream in coffee but not honey.

I haven’t tried to many teas but I bet I would like the fruity ones. I drink Lipton tea that I make iced tea with.
