Default Drinking Tea w/ Hookah?

Well, a few of us got on the topic of drinking tea last night. We talked about drinking tea with hookah and drinking tea after a good hookah session (to sooth the throat) ... or just drinking tea in general!

Just wondering who else enjoys tea!?

Got any recommendations? Sites, brands, etc...?

I am currently enjoying some Kalahari Red Tea - Zambezi Red Chai. I picked it up at a local supermarket. Has a lot of nice spice to it, and made with rooibos tea, no caffeine and full of anti-oxidants.

On our recent vacation, ZVT and I picked up some tea from a tea shop. They had a blend called "Ambrosia" and had vanilla, mango, rooibos, cinnamon, apple, and some other stuff I can't quite remember off the top of my head. It was really good! So I bought what they had left, which wasn't much, probably about 3 ounces of loose tea.

Cheers!

I love all kinds of teas seeing as i live in florida and the main drink in every house that ive ever seen/lived in is Sweet Tea. However i also enjoy other teas.

Ive found that if you make your own cup if you sweeten it with honey it makes the tea more enjoyable but thats just with hot teas

for tea i choose whatever i have. jasmine pearl #12 is liked a lot in this household (Pearl Jasmine on grandtea) but its expensive since its hand rolled. Grade A is worth the money if you try it and find out you like it. 88 bucks for 1kg compared to 54 bucks for under half a kilo from adagio.

Or you could go with the traditional route...

Yixing Teaware (used for one type of tea, becomes "seasoned")
http://www.mrslinskitchen.com/index....&Category=1388

I've gotten tea from here, good stuff. Buyer reward points.

Ahmad Tea is one of my favorites. They have a ton of different flavors and all are really good quality. I just got over a bit of a cold so I,ve been drinking the lemon-lime w/a healthy dose of honey.
But remember, the flavor of the tea you put in your mouth can effect the flavor of the smoke that goes in behind it.
