I always have loved tea and today i found this Tea Forte Oasis thing sitting in a cabinet and really liked it.

i was thinking of getting this stuff loose and not bagged; iv seen those tea strainers around is their a downside to this method ?

Any recommendation is great

Thanks

I like green tea in general, but Stash makes a decent Chai, I think they call it Bombay Chai or something.

I usually just get the basic green tea.

edit: let me go check the cupboards

edit2: ok, I was wrong about the Chai, that's from Revolution. I currently have Revolution's Tropical Green Tea and Bombay Chai, and Stash's premium green tea. Revolution's teas are great, better than Stash I think. http://www.revolutiontea.com/

Hot tea or ice tea? I'm a big fan of Arizona Ice Tea lately, and they have several varieties that come in 1-gallon jugs.

This is where I get most of my tea.

It's mostly all loose leaf (they have weird tea bags). Their cheapest cheap tea is still high quality, certainly higher than Lipton. It's really amazing how much better good quality tea is.

Good quality tea also doesn't leave behind anywhere near as many stains as cheap tea in your glass (and your teeth).

If you're a little overwhelmed by the variety of teas they have, their Earl Grey blends are really good to start out with.
