Are there any other tea drinkers out there?  Although I do enjoy a nice espresso, I still drink a lot of tea.  I buy my tea here  and have it shipped to wherever I am at the time.

I like tea, mostly Puerh these days, but I enjoy other teas as well: oolong's, black, greens etc.
Current collection amounts to around 9 kg, which is crazy but since it's mostly Puerh it won't exactly go bad.

What's your preferred brewing method?

Sounds pedestrian but I like Bigelow Green tea. Trader Joe's makes a nice Irish breakfast tea.

Nothing can replace my coffee, but I do enjoy a cup of tea every now and then. 
Yorkshire at the moment and it is nice.

i like puerh too, but my wife calls it 'that fish tea' because 'it smells like dead fish'  I have to do a quick 30 sec rinse to get rid of most of the smell for her.  I really should get some more...  low caffine and great for iced tea.

I have a large mug of coffee in the morning, and drink tea in the afternoon and evening. I'm not a connoisseur, and have a dozen or so Harney & Sons teas that I like.

I have been drinking Yerba mate for the past 20 years, or so. 
The best one I have tried is the Guayaki shade-grown mate from an indigenous reserve in Paraguay. It has the best taste of any mate I have tried. 
Unfortunately, I have had issues trying to source it in Vancouver, for some reason, so I have resorted to drinking the ubiquitous brand Cruz de Malta sun-grown mate from Argentina. 
It is fine, but not as rich a flavour as the Guayaki. 

I also enjoy Rooibos, quite a bit and Chamomile.  Shy

I’m quite partial to “art of tea” 6am yunnan black - with flavors of cedar, malt, & honey. It’s a very smooth cup absent bite - yet deep flavor. 
Also of note: adagio tea: yunnan noir, art of tea: Assam gold

Also, while I not a fan of teavana’s teas - I do love their little tea maker, as it makes steeping & straining loose-leaf effortless. Lots of room for the leaves to unfurl, and you never get small bits or sediment in your cup.

I like Harney & Sons as well. Especially theirs "Japanese Sencha" and "Russian Country". Recently found "Milk Oolong" from another mark and I am very satisfied with these.

I have been buying the Ruby Oolong Organic loose tea from La Colombe.  I am making iced tea via the Oxo Cold Brew system where I let the tea set for 5 hours at room temperature and then pour over ice that I am sipping as I write this post.
