    Does anyone like this stuff? I just tried some peppermint tea and had to pour it out. It was so bad Granted, it was 75p for 20 bags from Tesco so it was never going to be great, but I figured it would be the easiest to like. I like the idea of a nice refreshing tea, but I don't know where to start. Any suggestions?

    I like licorice tea a lot. However, too much can cause blood pressure problems.

    Twinings do a really nice chai tea if you like cinnamon/cloves type spices.

    Last time I was in the UK, I got some PGtips raspberry green tea which is really good. Needs 1 tsp sugar to really bring out the flavor but I highly recommend it for "a nice refreshing tea".

    peppermint is kind of dead... try white tea or green tea (on its own or mixed with passion fruit or lemon)

    White and green teas can be really good. I quite like them with a little honey. Be careful not to boil the water fully though as it destroys the taste somewhat.

    chamomile tea is one of the finest things to have twinings do a spiced apple one and did do (they might still) a maple one but other than that I have tried lavender which is strong but nice and damania which is a great pain reliver

    Does maple tea actually taste of maple?

    I think you should fully boil the kettle, Sabertooth, just wait for it to cool down after. My dad likes lemon with his tea. I wouldn't recommend own brand tesco herbal teas, but with a bit of sugar or honey, it should be okay.

    I does have quite a special taste to it though, be warned!

    I'm not the OP, John.

    I love tea, I have a whole cupboard devoted to it.

    You could be psyching yourself out by expecting them to taste like 'tea' when most of them are pretty insipid (some might say subtle)

    I like redbush, can't say I'm bothered about any other herbal teas.

    Chai is nice but I think it's technically normal tea with 'extras'
