So, I've stopped drink soda, I think. I was drinking like 4-6 cans a day, down to a few a week, and now I only have the occasional one.

But it seems that tea might be replacing it. I don't know a fucking thing about it. I throw a bag in the cup, add some hot water and just drink it straight after it steeps for a few minutes.

How does /ck/ enjoy tea? What are some good flavors? What do you usually add to it?

tldr; tea

If I'm at work I use one of these glass thermos thing, with a metal grid at the top. Then put loose leaf at the bottom and sip/refill during the day.

Genmaicha and black vanilla tea work great for this purpose.

I hope you realize, that the word "newfriend", came from the whole my little pony craze when manchildren bronies changed drawfag and newfag to "drawfreind" and "newfriend" to be more pg, you fucking newfag.

Drink jasmine tea. it already has a flowery taste so you dont need to add anything else to it.

I hope you know that you're making things up and I think it's cute that you think I care about your fictional history, newfriend. Hugs all round!

I've been trying to cut back on soda too, though I've replaced it with coffee. Except I hate coffee unless it's full of a bunch of milk and sugar, which kind of defeats the point of quitting soda. I do like tea, but it doesn't give me the kick I get from soda or coffee.

Anonymous 2013-10-26 02:26:36 No.4897810
try different kinds... green tea, black teas, oolongs, etc...

I have a oolong tea mixed with ginseng that kicks like coffee, but without the hard crash...

However flowering tea that has jasmine and osmanthus in it leaves me wired with shaky hands.

Yeah, certain kinds of tea make me feel weird. Some teas out of China these days are suspiciously flavorful.

I have tea in the morning but I can't drink it in the afternoon since I end up having trouble sleeping if I do. I mostly drink hot water at night.

What foods compliment tea?

Anonymous 2013-10-26 03:43:55 No.4898025
You should know there are many tea elitists. Many of them are at least partly right about things, while still being idiots in other ways. I remember an odd scene of a Teavana store at a local mall where clueless kids upsold vintage style Japanese cast iron teapots and 'special' storage tins to gullible housewives, and seeing a older Chinese man working the foot massage place walk by with an amused look on his face.

Explore, read, try. I'd personally recommend loose leaf teas, and trying hot teas at decent Asian restaurants so you know how things should taste.

A few consistent rules: Green teas should not be made with full boiling water.

Chinese see milk and sugar in tea as an abomination, and meanwhile British teas almost require milk and sugar.

Totally depends on the tea. The English are obviously known for their foodstuffs going along with tea, but the Japanese and Chinese teahouses also have foods that going along with very well.

My favorite tea is Turkish tea.

And why is that? Is it because the British ones are more bitter or something?

really? they started it though.
in the 4th and 5th centuries they were throwing milk, rice, salt, ginger, orange peel and friggin' onions into their tea

Anonymous 2013-10-26 03:52:49 No.4898054

Milk and sugar definitely complement their tea better. I don't know the history behind it, though I'd guess it has to do with the shipping process originally.

I like both kinds, but I would never put milk and sugar into most Chinese teas. It'd either mask the flavor or throw it off, even for earthier Chinese teas.

I like making iced tea with Oolong tea... it's pretty sweet - but I also generally prefer Black Tea... like Earl Grey

First you show up late, and then you leave out the article. What is /ck/ coming to?

Try black tea with a greasy American breakfast. Or try it with scones, muffins, etc.

I personally love dim sum with a jasmine tea.

Scones with clotted cream and jam, any type of cake you can get your hands on, light sandwiches cut into triangles (smoked salmon and cream cheese, egg and watercress, cucumber are all common) and biscuits.
