Dragon's Well Organic Tea has a richer flavor than many other green teas. There's also a green tea sold in Asian markets that has been "flavored" with toasted brown rice which has a wonderful mellow taste and is generally quite inexpensive compared to most green teas. Can't recall the name right now, but when I get home, I'll post it.

When I'm not suckin' down coffee by the pot, I drink Stash Premium Fusion. It's a green and white tea blend but they have a regular green tea also.

Lipton's green tea - the honey flavored especially. Available at every grocery store and Superwalmart.

I have become addicted to the one gallon jugs of pre-made diet iced tea. I can't remember the brand but it is available at Safeway and Food Lion.

I find some greens too grassy, but I like Teavana's Mandarin Orange (green with a touch or orange).

Dragon Well is simply the best. The fresher the better. Occasionally you can find leaves/buds harvested in the beginning of the season in April, and it's very gentle and soothing.

Hansen's Natural Peach Green Tea (with EGCG). I think it's intended to be consumed as iced tea... but one could probably microwave it if preferred hot.

Yummm Yummm!

Lipton 100% natural bags in winter and Arizona out of the jug on the rocks in summer - diet or honey version depending on my mood/er weight.

Hot tea and toast with honey in winter - or sometimes a little honey in the tea.

More coffee than tea lately - tend to go in long cycles.

heh heh heh

Genmaicha. An even mellower, almost sweet, low-caffeine tea is houjicha.

For drinking at work I get the cheapest bag of low-grade tea available from the discount store, and make super-thick, almost viscous tea, with lots of particulates. I like it.

This question hits home -- I just recently (last few weeks) have been making more tea in the morning instead of coffee. Either Earl Grey or green tea. If I need a jolt Earl is the ticket. The green tea I have now is celestial seasonings -- tastes good to me, but, I am a newbee to green tea.

I just hope that I am getting as many antioxidants w/ the teas vs. coffee..?
