Just coffee for me but +1 for the Picard reference.

I've been drinking more and more green teas for the extra antioxidant kick. But I enjoy blacks, reds and greens. Greens typically need to have some flavor associated - not a fan of straight green tea as much. For blacks, I love a broad spectrum: earl grey, irish breakfast, flavored loose leafs, etc.

My wife is the coffee drinker, I'm the big tea guy.

Sometimes I like a little milk and splenda, but typically just straight up. Every now and then depending on the black tea I'll throw a bit of lemon in.

Earl Grey is my favorite standard tea. The favored teas in my cupboard include Mighty Leaf White Orchard (white tea, melon and peach), Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical, Republic of Tea Ginger Peach, and Tazo Chai. I used to really enjoy Republic of Tea Pink Grapefruit Green tea on summer mornings but it's gotten hard to find. I usually drink my tea black, but on occasion I like Earl Grey or chai milky and sweet. I will drink just about any hot tea containing actual tea leaves, but I don't care for herbal or rooibos "teas", or iced tea. I like to try out different teas, and I like to buy from green, fair trade type small businesses when I can.

My favorites are black tea and Earl Grey, both hot. Black I'll drink with a couple packets of Sugar In The Raw. Earl Grey I like regular sugar with a touch of milk.

...And now I really want a cup of tea.

I'm a coffee snob until I start getting sick.
Then it's Earl Grey or Peach/Cranberry Ceylon and a spoonful of honey.

Drinking Earl Grey this morning, but only because I'm all out of Pearl Grey.

"A lovely blend of Indian black tea, blue mallow flowers, bergamot oil and vanilla bean." - http://atlaspurveyors.com/tea/black/383-pearl-grey

If you're in Boulder, it's from a great little tea shop just off the east end of the Pearl Street Mall.

I like green tea. :) But I don't start with tea until mid morning (coffee first, tea through the day, etc.).

@smudge262626: My mother-in-law lives in Evergreen, so I'll have to send her over to get some before she comes down to Dallas again~

Choice Jasmine green tea, Stash Mojito Mint green tea, Stash White Christmas white tea, Black Chai. And like my coffee, nothing goes in it but water.

@moondrake: You can buy your grapefruit green tea on-line:

@adadavis: Yes, thanks. It's just expensive that way. Full price plus 25% shipping.

Just about every day in the office you will find me with a cup of Li Shan Summer 08 black tea. I started drinking primarily green but eventually started trying more blacks and oolongs and found that I prefer a more roasty and strongly brewed flavor.

White chai, hot, no sugar or milk

I like Earl Grey or English Breakfast in the morning, green tea in the afternoon. Always hot and almost always without milk or sugar.

At some point I need to suck up the shipping cost and order some more Daintree Tea. Comes from a the Daintree tea plantation in the northern Australian rainforest. Probably my favorite tea of all time. But shipping costs are crazy expensive.

I like all types of teas, but I especially love extra spicy chais and quality Japanese green tea. I usually drink them straight, but sometimes I like my chai with a little cream and sugar or honey. Also I prefer loose-leaf teas. One of my all time favorites is the Chai/Chai blend from Teavana. Its a white and mate blend that gets really spicy if you let it steep for 10-15 minutes and is perfectly sweet without having to add any sugar to it.

Cold and with enough sugar to put me in a diabetic coma.

I prefer "Gunpowder" green tea, straight up hot, brewed with loose leave in a real tea pot.

I have some Orange/Lemon flavored Yerba Mate right now.

Mate is wierd.. It smells and tastes kind of like lawn clipping tea, but I can't stop drinking it.

Starbucks: Grande 140 Chai Soy Latte

mmmmmm....

Earl Grey black or green, jasmine green, Harney & Sons tropical green (mmmmm, pineapple tea).
I probably prefer black, but drink mostly green for the sake of whiter teeth. Side note - baking soda cleans glass teapots/cups.

Lapsang souchong, hot, with milk. With chocolate graham crackers, it's my perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

I switch around. Monday: Irish Breakfast. Tuesday: Ceylon Wednesday: Earl Grey. Thurs: random Fri: Earl Grey w/ chocolate.

I am a pretty big tea snob. All my teas are loose, brewed fresh. I usually drink mine with some zero calorie sweetner, nothing else. I get my teas from Adagio:

I brew my tea in a nice Breville tea pot: it was expensive but it is the only one with a delayed time start. Works great.
