1)How many kinds of tea do you have in your possession at this time?

When I first saw this post, I though it’d be a little difficult to answer because I have so much of it and not just in one place. Lots and lots. What can I say, I can’t get enough of it. Hey, there are worse things to be addicted to :P!

2.)What are they?

Cinnamon Plum Tea, Apricot Tea, Earl Grey Tea, Ginger Peach Tea, Raspberry Tea, Afternoon Tea, Japanese Green Tea, Peppermint Herbal Tea, Lemon Tea, English Breakfast Tea, Darjeeling Tea, Camomile Herbal Tea, Cinnamon Apple Earl Tea, Green Tea, Black Tea, and French French Vanilla Black Tea.

Mind you, those are the ones at my house…my grandma and I have a cupboard full at her apartment :-).

3.)Which is/are your favorite(s), and why?

Hmm…French Vanilla Black Tea is my favorite. It tastes elegant, if that makes sense. Whenever I need a comfort or whenever I’m preparing for a late night of studying, that is what I make. Earl Grey tea is great too. I remember when I was little and visiting my grandma, she would take me to this Tea Shop around the corner where we’d sip Earl Grey in fine china and chit-chat. I felt like such the grown-up on those occasions. So I guess, even though Earl Grey is great on its own, those memories make it that much more enjoyable for me. But basically, I’m a huge fan of caffeinated, sugared tea.

Great questions! I’ll probably struggle to come up with my own! But the trip down memory lane via Earl Grey has me wanting to know this…

4.) Do you have any good memories involving tea, and, would you care to share?

THat's a lot of kinds of tea that I've never had before. I'm very intrigued. I don't think I've ever even seen some of those kinds before.
I don't actually put sugar in my tea-- I prefer it white.
Good memories involving tea? Well, my good friend Megan and I usually catch up over caffeinated beverages, which is great fun. She's a great conversationalist-- very funny and understanding. I remember when I was little and I wasn't feeling very good, my mother would put me in this yellow fuzzy robe of hers (she did this with all of us when we were sick, and that's probably why I'm so attached to my fuzzy yellow blanket). She would then give me a cup of tea and cuddle me. That's a good set of memories.
This was a good question-- I think we should add it to the other possibilities.

Actually, I haven't had a few of those either. Quite a few of those came from a gift set my aunt gave me for Christmas. I'm up for drinking any sort of tea, but I tend to stick to my favorites.

I haven't caught up with anyone over caffeinated bevarges or been cuddled by my mom in quite awhile...*pouts*.

Is that raspberry tea the black tea kind? Or is it an herbal one? At a restaurant I had raspberry black tea, and omg, I so wanted to steal that restaurants stock of it. YUM.

Also, me and Earl Grey. I dunno what's wrong with me...

It was an herbal tea, but mmm, I wish it was raspberry black tea!

Ahh, I remember you mentioning your thoughts on Earl Grey somewhere. Nah, I don't think there's something wrong with you for not liking it--there are just *so* many more exciting teas out there, ya know? I can't drink it without lots of stuff added into it--sugar, lemon, honey, anything to make it more interesting. I drink it mostly for nostalgic purposes. ^_^
