      I don't drink tea for the health benefits, but my favorite blends are Earl Gray and green.

      I'm like tea or coffee. I mean, we're both mostly water.

      I am also glad to hear tea reduces the risk of heart. I was really worried about that.

      Drink both. Like rooibos tea the most. Trying to cut down on coffee, so I won't get headache if I haven't had a cup in a couple of hours.

      I like both tea and coffee, but I drink very little tea and I drink a lot of coffee.

      Tea is extremely healthy to drink, along with the huge list of chemicals it contains which can potentially increase your lifespan and reduce the risk to almost everysingle disease. It is not wise to drink tea less than 3-4 hours before sleep if you plan on lucid dreaming. It contains l-theanin which helps bring you into a meditative but can make it harder to fall asleep, it also contains caffiene which stimulates the production of adrenaline in your brain which decreseases the quality of rem sleep.
      L-theanin on its own may however help lucid dreaming after a WTBT as it is associated with the awake state. I still have to study it a bit more.

      Do you drink tea for the uniqueness of flavour? I don't drink either often, unless it's coffee for a social event or tea because I feel "Meh." My anatomy partner used to make this drink that is unbelievably healthy for you and tastes like tea. It was just water mixed with a type of vinegar, honey, sweetener, and many other.. interesting things. I'll try to find it if you guys would like.

      Earl Grey has a really nice flavour... though that's kind of only part of it. There is some kind of chemical effect that the hot liquid has on you; it's hard to describe. But cold tea doesn't do it, and neither does hot water.

      I like herbal teas most of all. Mint Tea, Chamomille (right now I have a Honey, vanilla, chamomille blend that is incredibly delicious.)

      Other than that, I like green tea, and any kind of tea that has a really smokey flavor. (also, there's some sort of tea I was introduced to last year that has popcorn flakes and kernels in it, which is also pretty damn good.)
      Rawr!

      I prefer Tea from a teabag. None of that faffing around with tea leaves and tea strainers unless I want to divinate!

      I drink a lot of tea, my favourite blends are lady grey and orange tea. Earl grey is nice, but can be a little too bitter for me.

      I drink both as well, but I'm mainly a connoisseur of fine teas. I buy from the Lupicia Tea Store in my area (or online at lupicia.com)

      I like Oolong and Jasmine teas, but really enjoy most teas... Earl Grey and Darjeerling are my top black teas. And I love most all of the Japanese greens.

      I love you. Lady Grey is my absolute favorite flavored black tea.

      I only drink coffee if I didn't get much sleep and I'm in a rush, I stop by my college's coffee shop. Sometimes I drink rooibos with vanilla, but my go-to is black tea.

      Black tea is pretty much perfect all by itself. I couldn't hope to improve it.

      AAAHH!




      I like a cup of green tea from time to time, I find it's nice, calming - sobering is perhaps a good word, as in I feel it helps center me somehow.

      I don't like coffee it's to bitter and gives way to much of a caffeine rush.

      I used to drink tea alot, almost daily, but I had a dream where I was told that tea was bad for me for certain reasons so I stopped drinking it and will only drink it every great once in awhile. But I do drink many other herbal teas from time to time. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Also I would drink this other stuff called herba mate but that stuff also makes me pretty wigged out on caffeine and I'd rather not drink except every once in awhile.

      I'd assume the health benefits would depend entirely on the type of tea. I agree there's a certain feeling to drinking tea that I get with all tea and not hot water or cold tea. But that's probably something psychological.

      I used to drink green tea and something called Bengal Spice Tea that I found (Tazo brand) which I really like. While working somewhere that sold it I drank pomegranitte tea (did not spell that right). Right now I only drink coffee. Like everyone needed to know that. lol.

      I hate laptops. Or laptop mice specifically.

      I like to drink tea for enjoyment and during school. I drink coffee when I want to stay awake during a night, or when I feel like having an energetic rush! I like the taste of both. I drink my coffee black!

      I drink water, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and soda, and alcohol for that matter. I don't drink tea for my health, I drink it when I'm out of soda lol. After drinking water all day I treat myself to one 12 ounce can of whatever soda i want with supper. I drink coffee to wake up in the morning, so i can be human, and do things like speak in my native language instead of grunt like homo erectus, listen coherently, and have some sort of recall of what is being said. For the rest of the day,til about 5 pm, I drink water - thinking it will help keep me stay healthy but after years of doing this and nothing age-related like heart disease, high blood pressure,or type 2 diabetes was prevented from me drinking water all day, I now do it just from habit. I drink a nice white russian at least twice a week at night before bed, if i could afford it, it would be nightly. Cheers.

      I recently decided to replace Pepsi with green tea after I realized I was drinking about 3/4 of a 2 liter bottle every day. I feel a lot better, I was surprised how good tea makes me feel. I'm already down to 1 glass of Pepsi every day, and starting January 1 I'll completely stop. I've also noticed that I haven't had a migraine since I started, but I don't know if it's the tea or because I stopped drinking Pepsi.

      I used to drink tea and watch funimation everyday, and it just gave me the greatest feeling ever, I was so relaxed and I just got so into the show, it's just an experience I can't even explain with words, something about watching an artistic show at the late hours of the day when the sun is fading, sipping on green tea that relaxes me even further. It's too bad funimation got cancelled, to have room for those FIOS trap channels where they try to trick you into buying a movie.
