I'm trying really hard to cut all softdrink out of my diet and have decided to replace with tea!! I love a cup of tea on a cold day... so living in qld I dont drink it much but its usually just your run of the mill black tea with a tiny dash of milk and 1 tsp sugar.
As I'm trying to cut out sugar I'm experimenting with different teas to find one i like but without the milk and sugar i feel like I'm just drinking a cup of hot water. So far i tried green tea, peppermint tea and chamomile tea. The peppermint was ok but the others..... like i said cup of hot water 😝
For now I'm just using good old tea bags but my birthday is coming up in july so I've asked for a tea pot to start brewing my own.
Tell me about your favourite cup of tea? Flavour? Do you add honey or lemon? Do you tea pot or tea bag? Where do you buy your tea leaves from?
GET ME EXCITED ABOUT LOVING TEA AND GIVING UP SOFT DRINK 🎉🎊☕

The tea party! TEA LOVERS UNITE
I love tea! I tend to stick to the classic English breakfast with milk most days but for something a bit different I'll have t2's creme brûlée tea. It's a little bit sweet and is lovely with just a touch of milk. Do you have a t2 store near you? I can spend ages in there tasting teas!
Eta: I forgot to answer your other questions. I prefer leaves but make it either with my little tea infuser or my big tea mug that has a strainer sort of insert thing that sits inside it with the leaves in it. You pour the water through and then just lift that part out. Both products from t2 as well! It's my tea heaven.

I love herbal teas - the Penelope Sach ones are my absolute fav , all loose leaf organic and I've got a few tea pots and a few single serve tea infusers
The lemon myrtle and Apres are my fav, they are so flavoursome you don't need sugar and definitely not milk
Also try Roobios tea ( caffeine free ) any brand but I like the T2 one the best

If there is a T2 near you they will often have lots of teas brewing and you can taste them. I love love love that place
My favourite teas are green tea (the trick is to get the really expensive stuff unfortunately - cheap green tea tastes bitter), peppermint, ginger and lemon, chai and Bengal spice (very strong flavour, kind of a love it or hate it tea).

I love the mixed chamomile spearmint teabag variety by twinnings from coles. I am trying to drink healthier too, have been advised to drink pure spearmint for my pcos but can't find it in health shops, I need to look online I think. I have more difficulty when I am out so normally either opt for peppermint or chamomile.

I love a good chai tea. I just make it with hot water and a dash of milk (cow/almond or coconut) but if I have the time I will make an all milk one.
I also am getting into a licorice tea at the moment.

Have a look at the Tea Maker from T2 - much better than a teapot if you're only making it for yourself

Oh me me me!! I love tea and I highly recommend tbar teas. They're Adelaide based but you can order online. I've never had to use sugar in any of their teas. They've got tons to choose from, better than T2 in my opinion. My favourites are spri-T, Assam BOP, champagne sencha. All loose leaf but I think they do some bags. Loose leaf is the way to go
Just a tip, to get a good tasting tea you need to make sure your water is the right temp & you brew it for the right length of time. Otherwise it'll be bitter, needing sugar and generally yuck.

Firstly, get tea from a tea store/specialist rather than loose leaf/bags from the supermarket. You can really tell the difference.
I tend to go to a place called the tea centre - but only because it is easy for me to go there.
I am actually going to try and go this week to get some new tea.
Also try double bagging your tea (use 2 bags rather than 1). It should help give more flavour.

I have two words for you:
Seriously. I've failed to meet someone whose life hasn't been turned around.
