Then you've got your herbals or flower teas, my favorites of which include the red South African rooibos (fantastic plain or with sweetened condensed milk if you wanna drink it S. African style) , hibiscus, osthmanthus, Samovar's "chill out blend" and the Celestial Seasoings offerings. Bite my tongue, but it's true. Can't be highfalutin' all the time. Plus I've been on the Celestial Seasonings factory tour in Denver twice; that's how cool it is.
For more on the delights of tea, check out the websites for Samovar Tea Lounge and DynasTea, two of my favorite tea houses in San Francisco, the latter thanks to Soyboy. Wisconsin's Rishi Tea also has a nice thing going on.
