Okay, I'll say:

Chyll Will, yes, wishes he could afford to buy them :-)

Thelarmis, never tried it, would be willing to try it, doesn't seem like his cup of tea.

Meh, not my cup of tea... unless you're talking about those stainless steel bowls and utensils >;)

yeah, never tried it. never would. definitely not my cup of tea.

btw, what does tea taste like? never had it. coffee, either.

that said, i did try chai tea, back in the late 90's, when i got into thai food...

[3] Tea is good. I can't drink coffee because I have a very strong reaction to it's qualities, if you will. Tea on the other hand can be rather soothing and I like the various flavors it can come in. Harney & Sons offers a great variety of high quality teas, as does Republic of Tea (Attention Alex: Check out the Chocolate Chai, you'll appreciate it! >;)

I'm very grateful to my sister, an experienced tea enthusiast, who recommended those two companies to me because they are quite an experience. I'm sure there are others to be recommended, but I would start with those two and see if anyone else measures up or surpasses them. No more store-bought tea for me, thanks!

[4] Hmm, stuck in moderation. I do sound like I'm pitching them, which is not my intention, but they are the best place to start if you've never had real tea (aka not sold in the supermarket) before...
