Heh. I automatically started to answer for just hot tea until I got to the hot versus cold question and had to go back. I have no idea why; I drink way more cold then hot.

Also:

- I've never heard of the pyramid shaped bags.

- I drink iced tea both with and without sugar. I prefer it if it comes with sugar already in it (added as part of the process of making it), but will never add it myself after the fact. It doesn't dissolve properly.

- I always put cream and sugar in hot black tea, but leave all other hot teas plain.

Lipton and other brands sometimes make pyramid shaped tea bags, they're supposed to brew better than regular tea bags. The ones I got from Lipton were made of a kind of plastic/polyester mesh that feels pretty neat.

I've never heard of the pyramid tea bags either, but I'll try anything at least once (within reason). ;)

I'm not fond of instant tea, but those little packets are handy to have to mix in with water if you're on the run. I much prefer the cold brew tea bags, though.

Also, for some reason, any kind of tea literally hurts my stomach if it's unsweetened. It might be the acid in it, and sweeteners help neutralize it.

As for alternative types of tea, I love chai and some herbal teas (though I realize they're technically not tea per se). Green tea and black tea are my faves, though.

When I answered 'Instant tea' I was only referring to instant flavoured (usually peach or lemon) cold tea. I don't recall ever seeing instant tea intended to be made up with hot water.

By other on the last question, I meant herbal teas, generally peppermint and camomile, but a couple of other flavours on occasion. And chai.

I don't really drink cold tea, but on the odd occasion that I do, I like it sweetened. :D

You left out a strainer-style infuser. :)

Also: I like just about any mint tea.

EDIT: Hey, my tea icon's gone! :( Now it's not!

I don't really like tea at all, but I'm from a Chinese family, so when I get together with relatives, I drink tea, just because everyone else is. I never go out of my way to drink it on my own time, though.

Mate, rooibos, chai, and gunpowder come to mind as other teas I also like.

Oooh, a rooibos chai/matevana mix is one of my faves.

My favorite tea is Chai, I usually only drink it hot but will on occasions drink it cold.

I also prefer my tea to already be sweetened and usually drink cold raspberry tea because it is already sweetened. I don't particularly like adding sweetners to cold tea, they do not dissolve properly. If given the choice I will always go with honey or agave to sweeten my hot teas with, if they don't have honey or agave I use regular sugar. I will not use artificial sweetners at all.

I like my tea without sweeteners or creamers. Same goes for coffee. Only exception is the occasions when I have herbal tea - unsweetened herbal tea is gross. Especially fruity things.

I just finished some green tea with jasmine. Jasmine tea is my favorite tea. Followed by Irish Breakfast Tea, then Oolong.

I have yet to have a tea that I didn't like.

As for sweeteners, I usually use sugar with black teas, honey with green teas, and no sweeteners with oolong and "health" teas.

Yogi teas are awesome! You can sometimes find them on sale at Target. Otherwise they're a bit on the expensive side.

If you ever come to Colorado I shall have to take you to the Celestial Seasonings plant. They give tours with tea samples, and it's only an hour or so from my house.

I don't like Earl Grey. The bergamot makes it gross in my opinion. I also am not fond of Constant Comment. And white tea has no flavor that I can discern. I don't like most herbal teas, either. But aside from that, I like most teas.

I mostly - and I mean, more than 99% of the time - drink only herbal teas, although I do enjoy the occasional fusion. I have this wonderful Green Tea and Vanilla mix from T2, for example.

Rosehip tea is the only tea I drink only when I *really* need something sweet. It's too much most of the other times.

No real opinion on the pyramid teabags.

I used to drink my tea with a disgusting amount of sugar in it, but now I drink it with much less or even without (especially if it's green). The one thing: NO. DAIRY. EVER.

Never had Darjeeling, orange pekoe, or oolong. Hate Earl Grey.

Orange pekoe is mixed with black pekoe in Lipton. If you've had Lipton, you've had orange pekoe.

As to oolong, it's a form of green tea. I like it better than normal green tea. And darjeeling is pretty awesome.

Ever had jasmine tea? It's awesome stuff. Has a flowery scent.

I drink so many different teas that it's almost impossible to answer some of these! Until recently, I used to offer guests a tea menu because I couldn't remember all I had here. The black teas I like are Twinings Earl Gray. I used to like their Chai but find it a bit insipid these days. There's a Chai that I prefer that I think is one of Yogi Tea's but would have to go and look (and I haven't had my rather late breakfast yet so won't). Yogi Tea do some lovely 'herbal' (as opposed to caffeinated) spiced teas, and also ones with chocolate. There's also a company called 'Pukka' that has some nice teas. I used to drink a lot of Celestial Seasonings but think they've changed over the years and aren't as good as they used to be.

There is a cold tea I drink on occasion, but can't remember what it is - do know it comes in a bottle and not as bags or loose tea.

I don't use sugar in tea anymore (and I can't stand artificial sweeteners) but instead, I sweeten my tea with a little honey - usually orange blossom honey as I like the flavour. Trouble with that is I worry that I'm helping to kill off honey bees by stealing their produce. We're very greedy, we humans. Well, some of us.

Ah yes, honey. Delicious, delicious bee vomit. :-D
