Doom doesn't understand why this forum must exist so let's show him why. I'll start it off with my last tea and lets go from there.

Darjeeling.

Currently Oprah Chai. I'm staying at a friend's place and have a limited selection without opening up all of her gift tea.

I had earl grey for breakfast, then green tea at the local café, then more earl grey this afternoon.

Yesterday I had bubble tea (珍珠奶茶) in a place called crêpes and bubble tea. It was nice, it made me feel like I was back in east Asia for a while. ruroken

I'm thinking of having masala chai tomorrow, I haven't had that in a while. Also, it's nearly time for macha ice cream, I can't wait!

Yup. Usually I mostly drink earl grey, and sometimes Oolong or masala tea. Green tea is my regular choice at the local café.

Is that your preferred Earl Grey? I'll have to try if it comes Calbrena recommended.

You can do something about it.

Step 1: make a cup of tea.
Step 2: drink it.

It just tastes like lightly flavored water. Maybe I didn't drink the right tea?

As a very recent convert to tea, I can't ignore this thread.

I think it was "Serenity" wellness tea. Nice evening drink before bed.

No tea today. Unless coffee counts as tea.

It doesn't. You can of course continue to update us on your coffees, but bear in mind that they don't win.

Yup, that's my guess. Some brands are just rubbish, while others are really nice.
What kind of drinks do you usually like? There's such a big variety when it comes to tea, I'm sure you'd find at least one that you actually enjoy drinking.

Isn't that a bit monotonous?

I tried some chocolate orange flavoured tea last year, that was nice

Considering where you are, you should probably check tea flavours which can work well as iced teas, such as herbal teas, fruit blends, etc. Stash teas are a bit pricey but they have a great selection when it comes to those. They also have recipes, if you have no idea where to start: https://www.stashtea.com/pages/ice-days-ahead-summer-recipe-book

Today I had some "tropical green tea" during the day, then in the evening had some tea liquor (yes it's as good as it sounds) mixed with the aforementioned Oprah Chai.

There's no hot water dispenser at the RDM's work so making tea would involve using the microwave. And that just seems crazy.

Yes, there are plenty of fruity teas. Which is why I recommended stash teas, they have a decent selection of fruity teas, which can make delicious iced teas in particular.

Have a look at their website, you might find some interesting flavours.

Yeah. It's a Twinings twist on the Earl Grey formula. It has some extra citrus stuff besides the bergamot, like orange peel and lemon peel. I actually like it better than the Twinings Earl Grey.
