    For all you tea fans out there


    I've done some reading about tea and it's benefits. I got some chai, green tea, and white tea. I'd like to know your opinions on these beverages.

    Speaking of roobios, I drink Yerba Mate all day, and want to start drinking Roobios but can't justify the difference in price. What kind of price have you found D, since I know you are the king of sourcing

    It's about twice the price of Green Tea.

    I'm an iced-tea-coholic.

    I think raspberry iced tea is really good. 4C makes a blueberry iced white tea (comes in the little tubs like crystal light). It's a little sweet for my liking, so I mix with a little unsweetened green tea, and it's primo.

    The main reason why I started to drink tea is because I am trying to lower the sweeteners I use. I am doing good, the only sweeteners are in my protein and supplements. But thanks a lot for your input!

    Im a big fan of teas. I always have black, green, and red tea on hand, and a good spicy chai usually. They each have a health benefit so I just rotate them through the day. I also use a Ginger/Peppermit Tea to ease my stomach from time to time, and its quite effective.

    In the summer, I like to brew pitchers of real iced tea from good tea bags (try green or red tea) and then to sweeten it, I add some Xtend to the pitcher to make a flavored iced tea. Green Iced Tea sweetened with Lemon Xtend is very good, and I recently made a Red Iced Tea with Orange xtend, again, very good. I call it anabolic Iced tea..and Im still waiting for Dsade to rip that off and make millions....

    You can get Rooibos in bulk for pretty darn cheap actually. If you buy it pre-bagged you're generally getting ripped off.

    For example, the "Oregon hippy site" I buy from, 1 lb of bulk red rooibos is $9.00..and that's certified organic fair trade. I bought 8 oz of this stuff last fall for something like $6 and it has lasted me this long using it almost every single night. I still have at least 2 months-worth left.

    I don't even bag or screen the red tea..I just pour hot water on it and drink it leaves and all. It's not bad at all.

    Question:

    How many of you make your tea using the coffee maker and a filter, in order to be able to drink it all day?

    I have a product design, called MoTiviTea, that is an organic tea blend in LARGE teabags...perfectly sized for coffee makers.

    Any interest there?

    Depends on the blend you use.

    What would you recommend? I am not a huge tea drinker.

    What would yield the tastiest blend (I can still get a decent cut product with decent EGCG content.)

    I am a big fan of green tea with mint and lemon. I drink a cup or two everyday. White tea is also another option since it is a little bit more mild.

    Cut green tea (organic) I can get VERY cheap. The limiting factor has been the boxes that these go in, but I found a nice alternative (and ended up buying about 5000 of them) that are around the perfect size.

    I think I'll go ahead and play around, and maybe do a limited release here.

    It's been idle for a year, but I found a way to make them locally...so figured this thread brought it back to the front burner.

    I buy mine direct from China. I'm suprised no one has mentioned Oolong, as it is my favorite. It's typically the type of tea served in Chinese food restaurants. It is quite tasty, and there is a wide range of tastes between the different varities and regions.

    I don't like tea in teabags - I prefer to use loose leaf tea and brew it in a teapot designed for accepting loose leaf. While at work, they have a small container that will hold your loose leaf tea and you set it on top of a regular paper cup from your office, and just add some hot water from the water cooler and you've got it at work, too.

    I also like green tea, and then I go to a store called teavana occasionally to pick up some matevana/roobios blend which is incredible, as well as a few others they have.

    But by far I like oolong. Only trouble, I like to drink it daily (but can't do it daily unfortunately) and so I have to keep some Crest Whitestrips on hand as it seems to stain my teeth a bit after months of use. But the whitestrips clear it back up...

    How about whitening gum?

    Does it work better than whitestrips? I haven't tried the gum. Who makes it?
