There's many different type of tea... My fav will be.. Earl grey's tea.. cause the taste differs from others..
In Malaysia we call tea as... T-eh..  Somehow in Malaysia.. among people, there is a famous tea calls as Teh Tarik (Trans: "pull tea"??? Tongue)..  tea and condensed milk ..

I am a tea addict, I drink probably at least 1.5 leters of the thing every day (6 250mml cups). Once it reached a level that my family rationed my daily fix but ever since I went independent I rebelled.

The variety I love is Russian Earl Grey which is much better tasting than the normal Earl Grey. English Breakfast isn't bad either but I mostly drink the normal black Indian tea which comes in whole leaves.

Indian masala tea.. definitely a nice one. But i believe we need to know how to prepare it properly so it will taste good cause it won't be the same as other tea. Perhaps adding some Mint (Mentha / Pudina) leaf will make it taste better...

I prefer Tea over Coffee too.  Earl Grey is my favorite too, used to drink lot of English Breakfast and Green Tea too, but became little boring perhaps too used to them.  Chamomile when I have flu or cold symptoms, almost too fruity but it seems to make me feel better.  Mint for sore throat.  And oh yeah, this Thai restaurant in town makes this great Iced Tea with condensed milk like you are talking about.  Emmmm, so good.Approve  It's almost like a dessert,.... no it is a dessert.  i order it every time I'm there.

Great topic Chahaya!

Though I like a good coffee my first choice for a warm drink goes to tea. It will give you a boost and give you something to do as you sip away. Beneficial too due to little guys called catechins - a flavonoid that has antioxidant properties. Beneficial for those with heart related issues, diabetes and even weight loss.

Tons of types out there folks. Earl Grey has a good reputation. Green and White teas are the latest craze among the uber health conscious. Personally nothing looks cuter than one of them little Turkish glasses refilled with some black tea. Rize on the Black Sea coast is were it tends to come from. They say it used to be radioactive from the chernoble days. I always wondered what made it so strong? Embarrassed These day's I go sugarless. Though an occasional cube is fine.



Aside from the traditional teas you can also have brews made from all kinds of herbs. Linden Berry leaves (Ihlamur) make a good tea for those with a fever or cold. Sage (ada cayi) is good for getting the little bugs out of your guts. Chamomile for sleep.

Tea is actually very popular in the states. Just happens to be of the cold variety - Iced Tea. Love that stuff too.

Wah, great topic dear Cahaya, you really brought up a good topic.
And dear Al Jassas you must be joking about 1.5 litter and still calling yourself an addict, I don't know what will you guys then call me, a Super Addict or what?
I drink something like 5-6 teapot (what we call Termoz and is 1.5 lit) of Green Tea on a normal day when I am alone and don't have guest or friends around (in that case it increases to around 8-10).
 
Here in Afghanistan people consume tea more than normal water and even we have a saying that says; "Even if your enemy steps to your door step you should not let him go without offering tea."
 
 
Regarding the Coffee/Tea shops out here we call them Chai Khana or Samawat, where people get to gather and have some quality time (as per Afghan Standards).
 
A traditional Samawat, where you could see the two standing kettles, the water runs to it on continues basis while under it there is a chamber of fire and at the side a chamber of dry tea which then mixes with the water and creates a great cup of green/black tea.
 
 
Edit: Oh and did I forget to tell you that while writing this post I just had two cups (mug would be more appropriate) of it. Approve

I am fortunate not being addicted to any type of teas or coffees, but i do drink Green Tea occasionally not because i like it, but because its healthy.

I try to drink a large cup of Chai in the evening, made with Russian Tea and maybe some Cardamom spiced Indian blended in.

I make my own Chai Masala from the best spices, expensive but well worth it.

Tea and coffee are more healthy than water (well, they are basically boiled flavoured water). Saying that tea isn't healthy is an old urban legend which have been repeatedly rebuked by health studies:

Mainly English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Lady Grey, Assam and Darjeling with a milk. I drink around six large mugs of the stuff a day! On the more exotic side, I enjoy Turkish "Elma Chai", ordinary Middle eastern dark tea, Oolong tea, Lapsang Sushong and Green tea.

LOLLOLLOL
 
You asked about Kimchi cake in some other thread and now Kimchi Tea?  I don't know Balaam, just add water and boil it?  But that would be more like Kimchi soup or stew which we do have various kinds. 
 
Another thing about Kimchi is that almost every region, town, village to each family has their own version of it.  it's all based on who's making it and what kinda fresh local ingrients for that season available, of course there are common elements...but.....   So I wouldn't be suprised if someone tried to put tea in Kimchi, but it would't be eaxctly Kimchi Tea.

Irish or Yorkshire tea or Darjeeling with milk and a lot of sugar.
Earl Grey or Lapsang Souchong or Japanese green with no milk and a touch of sugar.
 
None of that herbal or fruity stuff.

Coffee is good for a wake up, tea is a social, comfort and concentration drink for me.
