Tea for one

I've always loved tea. I was raised drinking sweet tea pretty much all the time, to the point where when we went to Wisconsin for a trip when I was eight, I was confused when nobody was drinking iced tea. Hot tea was a habit I picked up in high school, now that I think about it, possibly because it seemed like something a mildly snooty Anglophile might do to protest living in small-town Tennessee. My family had the standard Hank Hill reaction: "The girl ain't right."

Lately I've been drinking a lot of tea and trying new teas, which is a lot of fun. I really like toasted mate, green and white teas, and I'm trying to develop a taste for rooibos (South African red tea). I love going to Teavana ( for the Mate Carnival (toasted mate with chocolate notes -- called "the coffee lover's tea") and I'm dying to try some of the more exotic teas from the Republic of Tea ( I drink a lot of their Apple Blossom Green Tea.

Who else likes tea? Recommendations?
