Tea Anyone?


Ok, this is a weird post, I know. But I have this obsession lately. I want to like tea (yes the caffeine free kind). I want to be one of those ladies who comes home from a long day of work and school, turns down the lights, puts a kettle on the stove to heat the water, and sit on the comfy couch with her tea and read a good book. This sounds real strange. I went to the store to go purchase a good tasting tea. I came home with a tea that has the flavors of fresh berries, spices, lemongrass, and orange peel. Who wouldn't like that? Well the other night I was waiting anxiously for the water to heat so I could enjoy my tea. After I let it brew for a couple of minutes, I took my first sip. After 5 sips I could no longer drink it. It tasted bitter and had an awful after taste! I was so disappointed. Anyone know of some good tasting brew? I'm open to some suggestions.....

I looked like this lady after a couple of sips of my Wild Blackcurrant herbal tea

Orange Mandarin from Celestial Seasonings is really good. They also have a berry one that's really good, and there's always lemon zinger too. But you need to add sweetener otherwise it is disgusting. Use a packet or 2 of equal or 1-2 t of sugar depending on how sweet you like it.

Courtny Courtnry, you need to add sugar! I was raised on tea and i used to work at starbucks...i know these things haha. You can also add honey, i like mine really sweet. I have a whole pantry full of tea and when you come down to stay with us i'll make you a cup and we'll sit on the couch and chat, drink tea and relax...
