I agree earl grey is a really nice mellow flavor, I also like hh's 7 spice, basically any good non-fruity flavor.

I wonder if kalutika knows if this was possible? (He will know what I am talking about if he sees this post)

I like to mix a tiny amount of orange into the earl grey. Gives it a veryyy light citrus taste. Like a lady grey tea. There are tons of options to mix, but just keep it light so as not to ruin something that is already perfect!

I also like to brew some chamomile / peppermint with any smoke involving earl grey.

Now you guys got me craving some cardamom tea!

I did get a hold of some Egyptian Licorice a few weeks back .. which is different and pretty good.

But I am craving cardamom! Even though I have never tried it in tea form ..

Wow! I haven't posted in ages! As for a smoke to relieve stress, Nakhla plain and simple. Whatever flavour, as long as it is Nakhla...but I can remember one time in my life when things were definitely not how they should be and I was very stressed. I smoked a bowl of Shooting Star Al Barudi on this occasion and to those of you who have had this, doesn't it make everything better? Haha, it's like if it could be a commercial, it'd be Calgon LOL. "Calgon, take me away!" Anyways, it's great to be back here on the forums guys!

EDIT: Aw man I forgot! Sambooka, I am sure you can buy Ahmad Tea online from a source like Amazon, but this Palestinian guy here where I live sells it as well. Look around in Mediterranean markets there if you have any. Maybe Thunder can clarify this.....Ahmad Tea is a Persian tea correct? Let me know man

You can find cardamom in any local Arab store, online, or sometimes you can find it in Safeway since they carry this brand (http://www.amazon.com/Morton-Bassett.../dp/B000HQPEV2)

To make this tea, boil one cup of water, then add two spoons of Ahmad tea with 3 or 4 pieces of cardamom and 2 pieces of clove. let it boil for around 5 minutes or less (it depends on your preference).

I usually smoke something nice and mellow to relieve stress. Marlette from Starbuzz is good.
