I'm a tea lover as well. I have a cup of coffee in the morning just because I like the taste but I can't drink more because it makes my indigestion worse. I've always been a tea drinker. I've lived all my life in Texas so sweet ice tea is a staple but I also love most teas (except most fruity teas which I've never cared for).
I'm curious where all of you get your teas. I have gotten a lot of teas from Central Market (they use to carry one I loved but no longer & I have not forgiven them for it) and Mountain Rose Herbs.
That's so good that you're a Green Tea drinker because that's supposed to be so good for us. I like it too, just haven't gotten into a habit of it. My neighbor has drank it iced in the summer and will have it hot in the winter and had really lost weight with it too. I guess it can have that quality too, which would be so nice! She's now gained back some and I would have to say it's because her DH has retired from over-the-road trucking and is home every day and then she cooks and bakes tons more, then when she was home all alone. The way it goes for us gals that have to cook and bake alot for our guys, but we wouldn't want to live without him either! Well, most of the time. Ha! I always drink my coffee and tea plain. I love good, yummy coffee, fresh from grinding the beans. Oh ya, one of my favorites! Our good friends bought my DH and I for our birthdays, a huge Kitchen-Aid coffee grinder that is a commercial one and fits our red kitchen to a "T"! We love it!
I used to drink a lot of coffee, but I have recently become a Green Tea drinker. I find that with coffee I have to add 2 huge tsps of sugar and a lot of milk in order to like it, but with green tea, I can drink it with nothing added and love it.
I'm mostly a coffee drinker, but I do love iced tea, unsweetened in the Summertime, along with my coffee the other times of the day too. I do like hot tea more, when I'm not feeling well. For some reason, it feels better on my tummy and an overall calmer too, like Chamomile or Earl Grey. I love those.

I drink hot tea and cold tea. I have been on a Darjeeling Tea kick as my husband travels to India frequently and he brings it back for me. I like black teas, rooiboos, green tea and herbal tea as we'll
Tea is it for me. I try to stay with green tea since I like the pick me up from the caffeine but am sensitive to its bad effects. Green tea is not as hyper.
In the end, the best things in life came from our own inner growth and that came from dealing with things that we wish didn't exist and making them better. So in that way, bad things are a huge blessing.
I'm definitely the tea drinker, although I enjoy coffee occasionally. My fave is gunpowder green, though I also enjoy white peony and many others, including herbal. Somehow, a morning just does not feel complete to me unless I've had a few cups of hot tea. :D

I loved it. I drank it in gunpowder, black, orange pekoe, green, jasmine, even the white. But when stress beat-up my adrenal gland system of nodules (located throughout my body including the actual adrenal glands located on top of the kidneys) lost effectiveness my tolerance for many foods including stimulants died. Now I appreciate a good cup of herbal non- additive versions. Many of the mints and chamomile or similar dried not fermented versions are my BFF’s now. My Fibromyalgia does better without the caffeine, fermented foods, vinegar or smoke process in the making. I carry a few flavors around and just ask for hot water wherever I go.
The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
