Lewis and I being Westerners, I was confused. He's right, though, black tea is good.

At Argo Tea, which is a tea place near my parents' condo in Evanston, they sold me something which they called red tea. It is probably either the rooibos thing or black tea, I'm not sure which. It was pretty delicious though.

I bought a tea kettle today. it was this one:

I also bought a SWEET travel mug. It was this one:

It has the following features:
TherMax® double wall vacuum insulation locks in temperature to preserve flavor and freshness.
Unbreakable 18/8 stainless steel interior and exterior withstand the demands of everyday use.
Spill-resistant lever-operated drink lid makes it easy to enjoy your beverage anywhere.
Slim body with silicone rubber grip is comfortable to hold and fits most automobile drink holders.
Tumbler stays cool to the touch with hot liquids and is condensation-free with cold.


That handle looking thing is actually a magic lever! For drinking!

As creator of this thread, then, I should be rewarded somehow. Perhaps you could tell me how to change my status from "page" to "champion"?

looks like Argo Tea calls rooibos tea "red tea" so I was indicating that i like rooibos tea.

Then you should have said "rooibos tea," so that everyone would know what you were talking about.

On the whole, when a westerner says red tea they mean rooibos.

I mostly drink black tea myself, but I recently got given some white tea (Shou Mee if you're really bothered), and I think it is delicious!

As for which black tea I prefer, English Breakfast is probably the variety I drink the most, but I am also very partial to Earl Grey, and when I'm in the mood for it Lapsang Souchong is great, although it has a very strong flavour and not so many people like it.

there is a song that references lapsang souchong, and now I know that it is talking about tea.

I made some cinnamon tea the other day. I basically boiled water and added some cinnamon sticks. Add more cinnamon sticks for a stronger flavor. It was pretty bomb.

I may have to try that. However, I have enough packets of herbal tea (mainly freebies from a trip to the Celestial Seasonings plant) to last me a while, I think, especially since I don't seem to drink as much tea as I would like to.

I am not a big fan of Lapsang Souchong. But if you really want to try an awful Himalayan tea, try butter tea. It's essentially ash, salt, and ghee with a little water added. And worse, the taste lingers on your breath for hours after.

I love tea, though I'll pass on the rancid yak butter stuff. Darjeeling might be my favourite, Pu erh smells like a barnyard but can taste good. Black tea, white tea, red tea, green tea, herbal tea... it's just wonderful stuff.

I don't like celestial seasonings, because they don't secure their packets well enough.

Some teas I enjoy include: Rooibos, chamomile, and lemon tea.
