Problematic…

I do not like coffee unless it is in a form so dessertified that it can no longer really claim to be “coffee”.

I do not like tea unless it is heavily creamered…  I believe I mentioned this, no?

However – my office building could usually double as a walk-in meat cooler.

(OK, to me, anyway…  I’m just cold)

So hot drinks are a MUST!

Right now I am drinking Chai Flavored Green Tea.

Green Tea cannot be creamered.

This is not great, but it’s hot, and not utterly disgusting.  I could actually get used to it.

I suspect that herbal tea may have to gain a more prominent role in my life, as none of those usually work at all with creamer, but are still hot, and, with the liberal application of Splenda, sweet.

Anyone out there have any nice herbal teas they recommend?  I can’t stand bitter, so it has to be something that can take sweetener being added to it…

    I like peppermint tea. I don’t put cream in it, but I do put soy milk in it. But I also drink it black, well, yellow, but you know what I mean.

    I drink a Super Mocha Cappaccino with chocolate syrup and whipped cream with chocolate sprinkles and extra chocolate syrup and drink it with a chocolate bar with whipped cream and sprinkles!!!!! Oh and adding caramel too!!!!

    lol @ ron.

    Don’t do sugar in my coffee or tea. And only a hint of cream (mostly skim milk) in my coffee. The only sweetness is if I have a specialty coffee, or if my daughter has talked me into some flavored creamer, but that’s rare.

    I like many varieties of teas, herbal, green and some black–though the black teas tend to give me a headache. Peppermint, Chai, Lemon Zinger, and Lemon Ginger being counted among the faves.

    Raspberry Spark is good, as is any variety with lemon in. Also green tea with jasmine doesn’t suck.

    None of these will take creamer. They do, however, pair with the blue stuff very nicely.


  5. Peppermint or Chai (or any tea) with honey in it is deee-lish!

    I can only handle Bigelow Green Tea. It tastes good hot, cool, etc. It’s the only green tea that can sit on your desk all day and not taste terrible. One packet of the blue stuff, and you’re good to go.

    I also highly recommend Lemon Ginger tea. See above for sweetener. Plain ginger tea is good for when you have stomach upset.

    All other teas require heavy, unhealthy additions.

    Evening in Missoula.

    Absolutely the best tea EVER!

    You’ll have to get it online, but it is totally worth it.
