No tea today, which is unusual. I LOVE mango iced tea (since the weather's getter warmer) and I usually have a cup of jasmine tea before bed. I had a pot of Chinese black tea at the restaurant yeterday. :)

Well, this was yesterday and not home-brewed, but I wanted to answer anyway! I had a nonfat chai tea Frappuccino from Starbucks (I had to treat myself because they were half-price this weekend, plus it was my b-day!) I actually tried it with chocolate whipped cream, and it was awesome!

I have a couple of "go-to" teas that I enjoy: a green tea w/ wild blueberry & acai (Bigelow), and a Good Earth original sweet & spicy herbal tea blend, caffeine free.
But today I treated myself to a skinny decaf peppermint mocha at the local coffee shop for Mother's Day.

I drink a lot of tea, decaf. Today I drank Celestial Seasonings Green Tea with Mint- unsweetened decaf. :)

I had a pot of white tea and pomegranate. Picked it up yesterday from a gal who does her own loose-leaf blends. It's fabulously sweet and mild.
Just curious to see what everyone likes and what interesting blends come up.
This morning I had a plain cup of white monkey. Light and floral, but a little bit of a grassy, dry finish.
This evening I just brewed a blend that's new to me - from one of Adagio's fandom samplers, Avatar's Iroh Tea. This one was really surprising - it smells shocking, pretty much like straight lemongrass in the tin. After brewing the jasmine comes out on top with an undercurrent of lemon and ginger. Very relaxing stuff.
So the question remains... what have you got brewing in your cups and teapots?
