Hey anyone really into Tea's and such? I'm trying to get off of soda's completely, really it's been easy I haven't bought soda in at least a few weeks. I might have some when I'm out at a fast food resturant but that's it. Anyhow, I was getting tired of drinking water, milk, coffee, and V-8 juice. So I went and bought some Tea bags and have been making Tea for the last few days. It's really good, well sort of. First box of tea I bought was lipton. That stuff is aweful. I had to give it away it was so bad. Next I bought some Kroger brand "Orange Pekoe" tea and it's pretty good. Now I'm looking at trying some different "loose" teas to see how they are. I got a sample bag from my coffee supplier that is an english breakfast tea that I plan to trying. I have been making my tea with my french press and boiling water. I only use filtered water to make the teas. So far I will make a pot and then put some into a glass container and let it cool then put it in the fridge to make "iced" tea. When I drink hot tea it seems like I need to put sugar in it. But when it's cold, it's tastes just fine "iced" with no sugar at all. Anyhow, I believe the health benefits of tea and it's a very lost cost drink when compared to soda's and other beverages.
