Umm, I'm sure Iced tea is very nice, but is it really tea?

Oh My
Yes. It's just iced and often tastes nothing like tea that is nice and hot.

if you let tea get cold and drink it without reheating it it tastes much the same, so yes. typically there's a slightly to moderately higher sugar content per volume than a hot tea, but it's still rather enjoyable.

Tea. Yes. Very yes.

TEEEAAAAAA

Me and my siblings practically live off of it half the time. Our mom has to remind us to drink water to keep from getting dehydrated. My personal favorites are Earl Grey, Lady Grey, blueberry and chai.
Still working on Good Style, so bear with me.
I like plain green tea. I'm also quite fond of mint.

Also, Starbucks' passion tea lemonade with no classic and one pump raspberry. SO GOOD

Oooh, I forgot about that! Ice-cold green tea in the middle of summer, especially in East Texas, tastes like ambrosia. Pure bliss. :D

Okay, I officially have to write that down and try it the next time I'm at a Starbucks.

Green tea is for silly people, give me a strong black any day.

Tea doesn't dehydrate you!

TEA!!! tongue

I love chai in its many blends and varieties, especially the masala kind with condensed milk. I prefer first flush darjeeling for loose leaf, and Twinings for my tea bags grin

^^ The kind we drink usually has caffeine in it, which is majorly dehydrating unless you drink straight water. And, since we're dethirstified by the tea, we don't feel like drinking straight water. This is where moms come in handy. XD

All tea has caffeine...

Tea Advisory Panel page.

The average cup of tea contains less than half the level of caffeine than coffee. One cup contains only 50mg per 190ml cup.

And more relevant to the hydration:

Tea contains aproximately 99% water. It is an important source of fluid and can count towards your daily intake of 8 cups of fluid. Both the Food Standards Agency and the British Dietetic Association advise that tea can help to meeting daily fluid requirements. Tea consumption does not produce a diuretic effect unless the amount of tea consumed at one sitting contained more than 300mg of caffeine. This is equivalent to six or seven cups of tea at one sitting. - Single servings of caffeine at doses exceeding 300mg may have a diuretic effect. - However, a tolerance to caffeine develops so in the unlikely event of there being any diuretic effect, this effect is diminished in people who regularly drink tea.

^ Huh. In that case, I'm rather confused, but for some reason we all drink craploads of tea and we're still pretty badly dehydrated.

(Although come to think of it, where we live it's incredibly dry, incredibly hot or both, and just stepping outside practically sucks all the moisture out of your body, so that could be it.)

Yay! I'm so happy that my favorite drink ever isn't responsible for a serious health problem! 8D

I plan on running a Steampunk-themed Tea Shop. I'm going to call it sTEAm.

Steampunk tea shop? Where do you plan on setting up shop? I like tea, but I have a pretty narrow taste. English Breakfast with 1 spoon of sugar and some 2% milk. I also prefer decaf, I have no idea why.

I adore tea, particularly dark teas, and especially Earl Grey. The only problem is the difficulty in obtaining loose leaf tea leaves where I live.
If there's nothing wrong with me, maybe there's something wrong with the universe.

I enjoy tea so much I can even enjoy bag teas.

I'm so hardcore.

I'm able to enjoy bag teas, but I prefer loose leaf. It's so much better.

Had some iced Chai from an Indian restaurant in the food court while I was at Anime Boston today. After spending hours on end walking around, it was so refreshing. Probably wasn't the best quality tea, but I needed some tea badly at that point.

Life is like a game of Mahjong. Sometimes you need to take risks if you want to come out ahead.

@randomgay 123: Probably in Ashland, Oregon. And I'm only going to sell only the best of English Tea. My friend (and future co-owner of the store) recommended a particular brand of tea that I cannot remember at the exact moment.

As if people didn't misspell my real name often enough... lol. No big deal.

Oregon, huh? That's pretty close by. You gonna tell us when/if you ever open it?

What do you mean, you can even enjoy bag tea (by which I assume you mean teabags)? They're not exactly exotic tongue

Lower Quality Tea.

That's the only kind of tea I've had an opportunity to try, so far... It isn't that bad, despite the low quality.
