    There has been a lot of talk here about teabaggers. Lots of well thought out and not so well thought out posts. Thread after thread of tea bagger this and tea bagger that. Lots of "yes you are" and "no I am not" "yes I am" and "no your not" comments thrown around like insults.There seems to be a rabid dislike or undying love of this tea bagger thing. People run hot and cold towards the idea of tea baggers.

    So what’s your bag?

    I am a black tea girl when it comes to tea. I prefer Darjeeling or a fine Earl Grey. I like it hot in the morning and cold in the afternoons.

    Sometimes tea doesn’t need bags. The good stuff is always loose. Just add boiling water and watch the steam as it steeps.

    The one tea that I have never liked nor ever will I suspect, is Gunpowder tea. Loose or contained in bags it just has a bad taste.

    There is an idea, Gunpowder tea bags. Add boiling water, watch for steam and see it it explodes. :lol:

    Says the girl who is savoring as I write, a nice cup of custom blended coffee. Hot of course with sugar and cream.

    I like Green Tea, but tried the new White Tea, it is smoother and has less caffeine

    Am I racist because I prefer White Tea?

    Tea racist!


    Just as you cant say black you cant say white. Its CAUCASIAN tea!

    Splenda! Glad you like iced tea too. I can do a gallon a day too when it is hot. But it must be sweet tea.

    Just so long as the Doctor keeps the hammer way from your ball peen you will do just fine.;)

    Yes, most people cannot taste any difference between dissolved Splenda and dissolved sugar, and Splenda doesn't have the bad rep that Nutrasweet and some of the older no calorie sweeteners have acquired.

    I love Earl Grey hot. Just old fashioned orange pekoe is fine for iced tea though--I prefer it unsweetened but can drink it either way. Brewed though. Not instant.

    I also keep an assortment of flavored teas - Peppermint, Cinnamon, Constant Comment, etc.- on hand when I'm in the mood for something different.
