My office smells...

... Of peppermint.

I love having peppermint tea to drink when I have a stomach ache or a stuffy nose. I'm making some today because my nose is all stuffed up. I've just dished the leaves into my teapot and am waiting for the water to heat up in the electric kettle and already someone has walked by and commented on how good it smells

My office also often smells of cranberry because I have a cranberry tea as well.

What is your favorite tea?

Oh okay, your office smells good. I say smells when really I mean stinks. Lets see, I like Hot Cinnamon Sunset sold by Starbucks in Barnes & Noble bookstores. I'm a coffee drinker but I do enjoy a soothing cup of tea on a cold evening.

That was the point I made the subject line make you think the opposite of what I'm actually trying to get accross.

I only drink tea when I'm sick - other than that I'm a big time coffee drinker. I drink either green tea or wellness tea from Celestial Seasonings.

1 bag of PG Tips and a spoonful of Earl Grey. Nothing better.

(In the pot of course).

I'm not into all these fake fruit "teas". They smell and taste awful IMO.

I'm something of a tea snob. I really only like loose leaf tea. I get mine from Teavana (you can look them up online)

The cranberry tea I have is a black tea with cranberries, rose petals, and other flavorings in it.

Though I have to say, I do love a good cup of Earl Grey.

Tea, or coffee for that matter, is something I never really got into. Maybe I don't have the patience to sit, and sip a nice beverage. Just give me a good old diet Code Red in the morning, and I'm a happy girl! I do love the smell though!

When I was younger, my grandma always tried to get me to like coffee, but I just couldn't do it, to bitter. But they smell heavenly!

Exactly this. I'm a bit of a tea snob and I drink *A LOT* of it.

The only two i buy regularly and always have on hand. PG Tips and Earl Grey, although my local European grocery store has a lovely loose Russian Black Tea that I pick up on occasion. I prefer loose tea to bagged and NEVER drink it in a mug. Always in a teacup.

If you like loose leaf tea, I would look to see if there is a Teavana store near you. I never get out of the store unless I'm $100 or more poorer.

I drink out of teacups at home (the japanese ones without handles so I can soak the warms into my hands) but i've broken to many of my teacups by taking them to work.

I'm such a tea fanatic that I have a thing that keeps tea water warm all the time.
