    "The discourse and information exchange of the beverages of beverages: Tea. An elixir only appreciated by those who search for intellectual flavor not primal satisfaction" -Poro

    This is to discuss different types of tea, and things about tea. This is also a good place to suggest places to buy it, and tea related products. :)

    So, to start things off, what is your favorite kind of tea? and what kind of teas do you wish to try?

    Never been much of a tea-drinker. I'm sure there are kinds of tea that I'd enjoy but are they worth sacrificing my coffee time to try them out?

    I'll bite; What're the teas most enjoyed by the people of The Colorless?

    @LyraBane I mostly like it for the flavor options, and because it's a fast, convenient method of consuming caffeine. xP Generally I go for dessert flavors, my current favorites are Mocha, Caramel and Vanilla Hazelnut.

    OMG a thread about tea?

    In Narnia we drink a lot of tea..

    I usually drink a standard english blend of black tea with some milk. It's nice and smooth and calming. I quite like Earl Grey tea, which is another black tea but flavoured with bergamot making it a bit zesty and citrus. Generally meant to drink it with lemon but I prefer a drop of milk. I also like jasmine green tea, oolong, and white tea as well.

    Also, so called fruit teas aren't actually teas, they are infusions.

    oh wow! so are there many kinds of tea plant or is it mostly infusion that create the variety in tea? i wonder

    @EvoRulz actually there are only two main types of tea plant for green tea and black tea. The difference in flavours and type mainly come from where these are grown, the conditions of growth, and the following way the leaves are treated and prepared.

    So, green teas and black teas are real teas. Herbal, fruit, and root teas are actually infusions, like mint tea (although some mint teas are a blend of mint leaf and black tea leaf so are effectively real teas), camomile, apple, liquorice. It's not really that important whether something is a tea of not as long as you enjoy it (although in Narnia one is judged by ones beverage choices).

    I usually only drink Moroccan mint tea since we drink it a looot.

    I don't think i've ever passed a day without drinking some, that's how much it's drank here, when you visit a Moroccan’s house, the first thing they will do is start brewing tea.

    Ingredients include green tea (specifically Chinese gunpowder tea), fresh mint leaves in large quantity, sugar, and boiling water. When the tea is truly ready to drink, the host or hostess will fill small glass cups from high above in a dramatic show, leaving plenty of bubbles on top of each, it's pretty fun and satisfying to watch lol :'D

    I like traditional black tea a lot because my grandma use to make us a lot of it, then when we tasted it and it was too bitter we add some raw honey to it. So now, whenever I drink black tea , i add honey to it.

    I often drink green tea or black tea with additional honey and sometimes, milk. I also tried various tea like the aromatic Earl Grey, the calming and soothing Elderflower tea, the delicious Orange spice tea and herbal teas like Honeybush tea.

    I think my most favorite tea is one my aunt and grandmother give me, called Formosa Oolong. It's a black tea that I've actually run out of, as my friends and I have had it quite often.

    Tea is amazing. Its delicious even if you drink it blank (hot water + tea) or with sugar,etc.

    Personally, I love my Black tea, Green tea and Chamomile tea.

    Here's some benefit of the tea i mention above. The rest can be read from the source here!

    1) Black tea: Made with fermented tea leaves, black tea has the highest caffeine content and forms the basis for flavored teas like chai, along with some instant teas. Studies have shown that black tea may protect lungs from damage caused by exposure to cigarette smoke. It also may reduce the risk of stroke

    2) Green tea: Made with steamed tea leaves, it has a high concentration of EGCG and has been widely studied. Green tea’s antioxidants may interfere with the growth of bladder, breast, lung, stomach, pancreatic, and colorectal cancers; prevent clogging of the arteries, burn fat, counteract oxidative stress on the brain, reduce risk of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, reduce risk of stroke, and improve cholesterol levels.

    3) Chamomile tea: Its antioxidants may help prevent complications from diabetes, like loss of vision and nerve and kidney damage, and stunt the growth of cancer cells.

    Benefit aside, its an enjoyable beverages to have all day long for me.
