I like gunpowder and jasmine green teas a lot.
You should try white teas as well. White teas may be even healthier than green since they are less processed. The highest grade of white tea is Bai Hao Yinzhen or Silver Needle white tea. White tea is expensive but one of the nice things about white tea is you can get multiple infusions from the same tea. A second somewhat longer infusion still makes a nice cup of tea and you can even do a 3rd infusion.
I don't remember the brand but there is one out there that is Earl Grey made from green tea. You would never know that it doesn't have black tea in it! There is also one called Lady Grey that is tasty. My favorite tea, especially for this time of year though is Constant Comment.

If you're in Canada -- President's Choice Chocolatey Chai. Loves it!!! It's got the flavour of chocolate without the fat. And really good if you make it with skim milk.

Does the OP like dark mature teas like English breakfast ? or does the OP prefer younger herbal green teas ?
Personally, I love dark dark mature teas like English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast or Ceylon, Darjeeling. Ceylon teas are marvelous, dark, rich. But, I do like a nice herbal tea too. Some times I drink peppermint tea. Other days I like chamomile. Chamomile is very soothing. How about a spice tea ? Celestial Seasonings makes a marvelous spiced tea with cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, ginger, etc... yum.
Of course, you could also try Republic of Tea blends. They're a little pricey, but worth the extra $$$s if you like interesting blends.
You could also try Chinese teas like Oolong. Something a little more obscure to westerners is Chrysanthimum tea. It's a tea made from chrysanthimum flowers.
Don't forget you can make your own tea "blends". My current favorite for my iced tea maker is 3 green tea bags, one oolong, and 2 raspberry ones. I sometimes switch from raspberry to apple cinnamon in the winter months.
While I like hot tea occasionally, I drink gallons of iced/cold tea. I have gone through one of the automotic tea maker machines already and am using my second one just as frequently.
BTW, I used to hate tea. Until I finally tasted some that was unsweetened. Which I absolutely love. But I still hate sweet tea and will do without rather than drink it, regardless of whether it is sweetened with honey, turbinado sugar, white sugar, or artificial sweeteners. A strange but dietarily convenient habit!
I would suggest going to a local farmers market and looking at the teas they have there's a blend at mine called yoga, and it is amazing, but you'd have to check where you are what kind of blends they've hand made. Good luck, some very interesting stuff there!
I went to Disney last year and got a whole lot from the park "china" sad to say its all gone and everything else that I have tried is weak and I use 2 to 4 bags at a time.

I love silver needle white tea (Bai Hao Yinzhen) but it is rather expensive. Since white tea is even less processed than green it may even be healthier. Other than teas I enjoy gunpower green and jasmine infused green tea. I like almost any Chinese green or white tea but not a fan of Japanese green tea. I'll drink it when eating at a Japanese restaurant but I don't buy it for myself.
Check out Mighty Leaf Tea. Besides being delicious, they organic and the bag is recyclable in the compost pile. My favorite is ginger. It's mild and tasty. You can buy them online, but they are expensive.
I love jasmine tea... I drink it plain.. it has a lovely flowery taste

Tazo makes several kinds of green teas ... I just remember that green tea in the darker green package I like more than the green tea in the lighter green paqckage. I don't worry about caffiene when I'm going for green teas.
And just for reference, most Art of Tea's teas (sounds funny!) are loose teas.
(Of course, you can make any tea "loose tea" by removing them from the teabag and treating like any other loose tea.)
I love tea. I prefer loose tea, but it's gotten harder to find, or is too pricey. But I would splurge on Darjeeling or Assam tea.
I had a bagged green tea, that I think was by Tazo, at a hotel, and it tasted really yummy, but maybe that was only because I was on vacation! At home, it's Earl Grey w/ sweetener and milk, Tazo Awake, or iced tea, 'cos I'm a Southern Girl.

Love Tazo Calm, especially with honey.
Art of Tea's Chocolate Monkey is amazing, WOW!! Cacao nibs, dehydrated bananas, rubios tea, pink peppercorns ... the taste is INCREDIBLE.
Love Yerba Mate, though that is caffinated. Love mint, but don't love the mint yerba mate.
Otherwise, I do love green teas (have had really unique green teas from Asia which have been marvelous - can't give you a brand as I can't read the label).
I also like mint tea, peppermint tea, chammomile tea.
And I do make my own ginger tea when I have nausea or an upset stomach - works way better than OTC products. A little hot and sharp for ordinary drinking though.
I also like Yogi's Bedtime tea, which is like, um, is it Celestial Seasonings? Sleepytime tea, but way better.

I've been trying to drink more tea lately. I know that green tea is very healthy and good for you but haven't gotten into the habit of drinking it straight quite yet. I drink Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Tazo Zen and Irish Breakfast. I would love to know some of your favorite flavors and brands.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Have a great weekend!
