Just curious if anyone was really into different varieties of tea.
Ice Tea, Milk Tea, Herbal Tea, Tea From Different Cultures (like Asia, Europe, Ect.)
Also Health Benefits if there was certain ones that help cure or ease illnesses or health problems.
I drink a fair bit of teas and tisanes. I like it, but I don't pretend it's fucken lifechanging. It's a nice bit of hot beverage and that's all I need.
Currently I'm rocking a Chinese dragon pearl jasmine, the tacky fucks, a Sri Lankan white which is particularly fine, an Earl Grey blend made with Indian leaves and whole bergamot flowers and a gumboot tea I get from a teabag which is like four dollars for a hundred. I've also got a very fine tgfop but frankly I prefer the bag tea.
I think the health benefits are overstated, but I also think a lovely cup of tea is very nourishing. Green tea certainly doesn't hurt.
I used to drink a lot more tea before I got bad cold weather heart palps, so now I avoid caffeine in substantial doses. I used to be crazy about milk tea, the best one I found in Taiwan is tieguanyin milk tea. Now I just drink rooibos and the occasional genmai milk tea (mostly milk, and the tea is mostly brown rice, so the caffeine content is pretty insubstantial).
