    (As you can tell I really like tea)
    Punjana is the only tea worth anyone's time.

    Also, to the OP, remove a teabag? If I make the tea in the cup (pop the teabag in, add hot water, stir and leave for a few minutes to brew) yes I remove the teabag but normally I make a pot of tea in a teapot. Improves the taste a lot.

    I drink about 6-7 pints of tea a day when at home, on average. Less when I'm working (usually work 1 day/week, but ATM I'm covering so doing 3ish).
    As for types, good quality loose leaf blacks. Not Earl/lady grey, as they're ashy; usually Ceylon, Darjeeling, Assam, Kenyan, a breakfast, Lapsang, and similar. Fannings at work, because it's work and they get the tearoom sweepings (aka teabags). Loose leaf I drink black (just like some people like their coffee :P), but fannings I take milk to take the tannin'y edge off.
    Leave a teabag in? Why would you ever? Tea leaves should not come into contact with milk - nor should you use teabags :P Either way, you end up with stewed tea, particularly when you're used to more delicate flavours of tea like Darjeeling/Ceylon etc..
    Oh, and I'm a Brit.
    Don't touch coffee.

    Yeah, but mainly sweet tea (see my location.) I've grown up with sweet tea and therefore struggle to prefer the bitterness of most other teas. Like coffee, I assume most teas are an acquired taste, but, then again, I don't really drink coffee either.

    Yup. Tea and coffee to.
    All sorts of black tea (in bags or whole-leaf brew in small kettle) with favourite Earl Grey type.
    I add spoon of sugar sometimes slice of citron.
    And kids, don't drink pre-made tea-like drinks in plastic bootless.

    Used to really love this stuff but it started tasting different to me.
    I don't drink it as much as I used to myself...I wish the diet stuff wasn't so over sweetened.
