The Tea & Coffee Thread

Recommended Posts

I haven't saw a thread about that topic yet.

My favourite tea blends are Earl Grey, Orange, Citrus, Chun Mee and Lung Ching.

I like to drink espresso and coffee from vietnam. I wanna try Kona blend soon.

How do you like to drink your tea and/or coffee?

Not much of a tea drinker, unless it's iced tea, Southern girl here, so it has to be sweet. ūüėÜ ¬†Prefer black iced teas.

Love coffee, lattes. Cream and sugar for my coffee, prefer bold coffee over the blonde types. ¬†Love caramel mocha lattes and during Christmas, Starbucks eggnog lattes were awesome. ‚ėē‚ėē‚ėē‚ėē

Im sipping a coffee now.  I have a low acid Arabica Coffee with Chaga Mushrooms blend.  The beans are "monsoon aged" which is how they become low acid.  I also put a Tbsp each of collagen peptides and cocoa powder in in the french press.  I always brew two mugs!  I add a splash of coconut oil and some 3.25% milk to my mug.  It tastes like a macaroon, especially if I treat myself to a pinch of raw sugar.  

I love the ritual of brewing coffee at home; the sound of the whistling kettle, the various pours, the gentle scrape of the spoon in the sugar, the ding of the spoon on the mug, the mugs contact with the coaster or surface.  And if sharing with someone the inevitable sigh of relief or "mmmmm."  I love the ways we grip the mugs for comfort and warmth or even to project active listening.  Or how the 'mostly empty cold cup of coffee' is some peoples talisman. 

I go in and out of enjoying green tea.  I used to make an iced tea turbo cider that people really enjoyed.  I make pop/soda out of herbal tea blends and love that stuff.  Drink it daily.

And naturally I love a double-double from Tim Hortons.

@soon Have you tried chinese tea yet? They have wonderful blends. I highly recommend their green tea, nameley Chun Mee (Jiangxi) and Lung Ching (Hangzhou). Those are my favourites from that country.

I was gonna ask what Chun Mee is.  I dont think I have tried those. When I go to a Chinese restaurant they serve tea to start.  Is that likely to be one of these types?  I love that stuff.  

Tea is generally too thin of a liquid for me to drink warm.  When I drink green tea I mix it with bubbly mineral water.  Maybe Ill have to try making a pop out of some Chinese teas

I can’t drink hot tea - the taste just makes me sick and turns my stomach. Doesn’t matter what kind.

I’m a coffee addict, however. At least 3 cups a day.

Ringtons if I'm drinking English Breakfast Tea, and, Chinese tea - I tend to go back-and-forth between the two. The ''Ringtons Man'' drops Ringtons off at my Grandma's. I do not really have a distinct Chinese brand; occasionally I will put a bit of root ginger in Chinese team.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker but I drink Kenco sachets of the instant stuff when I do.

I get Ringtons sent from my parents and otherwise it's just M&S breakfast tea. Don't really bother with coffee much.

I have Lady's High Tea today.  If you google that you come up with nothing but porn sites.  It's an old fashion ladies get dressed up, have tea and finger food.  She serves Lady Katherine tea, good stuff.  Not sure how I'm going to dress for that as I have pinball league right after but I switch back to good old Folgers, my love and life's blood.

Have you tried to drink loose tea? It tastes much better than with tea bags

I’ve tried numerous K-Cup brands over the years, but the taste and smell just make me sick. It’s weird, but just the smell of Earl Grey is enough to get me out of a room.

But of course :lol:

 

For me, no coffee beats instant Nescafe.  ya ya instant,  I know, I know. :lol: 1 milk, 1 sugar.  (I hope someone is reading this and remembers. ;))

I like baby shoot loose green tea leaves from Toronto's China Town, but you pretty much have to mortgage your house to get it! Full of health benefits though.  But on a rainy Sunday afternoon, it's Bigelow's Earl Grey..the bags are wrapped in foil to retain freshness.

Scottish breakfast tea, kinda middling in strength with milk and a spoonful of honey. Tea is a major part of my life :wub: . I'm about to go back to Mexico though where black tea with milk is an utterly alien concept to most people. When ordering it, they've fucked it up in various spectacular ways, I've been served cold black tea with milk, I've been served a teabag floating in hot, frothy milk from a coffee machine... I was just like "Nooooo! Why would you do that?!". When I'm in Mexico my tea consumption drops from 3 cups or more a day to basically nil. Sad times.

Aye, but naebody has a kettle, so you have to boil the water in a pot and then attempt to pour it into a mug without it going everywhere. Do-able, but a total faff.

Fresh ground black coffee is a real delight, but in the world of convenience I typically just but whatever is on sale. If I'm out and getting a coffee obviously being Canadian there's a Tim Hortons everywhere but I actually prefer the taste of McDonalds coffee. More flavour, especially black.

Ladies High Tea, Pinball League and Master Gardeners.  That all sounds like a good time!

My mom serves Folgers from a huge Costco bulk size tin.  I love that stuff too.

What job did you interview for? Hope they offered you a cup of tea......I have tried  dozens of Earl Grey blends and for me the Taylor's has the perfect balance of tea and bergamot flavour. Really good stuff
