Lipton hot or cold,but it can't replace coffee for me. I have tried a few of the celestial seasons flavors,but none have ever really jumped out at me.

I am going to order some Irish tea from Ireland. Apparently the British and Irish stuff is better/stronger than the stuff here in the US. We'll see.

I have never drank hot tea. Just curious, do most of you drink it straight or with sugar, honey, milk, etc.. I may have to give hot tea a try.

Yes. LOL
Most of the time, I just use a pack of Stevia. If that's not available, I'll use a teaspoon or two of sugar. But I have also used honey. And sometimes I'll put a splash of milk in it.

It is somewhat an acquired taste. For instance, I tried Twinings English Breakfast tea and was not impressed. It was kinda bland. But I tried Earl Grey tea, and Chai tea, and really liked those. Now that my palate has developed a little, I now like the Irish/Engish breakfast teas...I just add sugar/Stevia/Splenda to it.

And there's all kinds of tea to be had on the internet! \:\)

Okay guys, my Mom was born and raised in Australia. Tea bags never made it inside our house. Here is how to make REAL tea:

Water on a hard boil.
Teaspoon of cut Lipton Pekoe tea per each 6 ounce capacity of your teapot. Tea goes right in the Teapot and don't forget one teaspoonful for the pot.

Water on the tea in the teapot. Seep for about 5 minutes and this depends upon how fast your teapot gives up the heat.

Never use a metal teapot. Must be china.

Your brewed tea should be nearly black. The smell should be intense.

My Mom laughed at these sun-brewed things. Called the tea that came out of them dishwater.

Good hot tea doesn't need to be cut by sugar or milk.

Good ice tea with no sugar quenches your thirst.

For sweet tea drinkers what you get outside your home is not tea at all. Just sweet water. Try it my way, you will appreciate it.
