Pure is my favorite but also drnk greens, oolongs, and blacks. A jasmine oolong is my morning get up and go tea right now. Love brewing loose teas. Feels like I am in charge of the taste.
Everything is possible the only obstacles are within me.

Hibiscus is good for weight loss, but make sure you drink TONS of water with it, as it is a diuretic. I LOVE Good Earth Original. Spicy and rich. Almost like a cup of Apple Cider without the calories!

I just found a couple of boxes of seasonal Celestial Seasonings' "Sugar Cookie". I plan to make tons of iced tea with it until it's gone. YUM! When that is gone, I like the Decaf Mint Green Tea or Peppermint.

You may be steeping too long or using water that is too hot. Doing one or both of those things will result in bitter tea! Green tea likes cooler water than black tea. So allow the water to sit for at least 5 minutes before pouring it over your tea. Steep for 2-3 minutes, then remove the tea. It's also great with a lemon wedge!

I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up.... and handle it. Tupac Shakur

Earl Grey is my favourite. Also starting to quite like green tea.

Tisten, if you don't like it... don't drink it. :) I'm not a big green tea drinker, either.
Although, I have to ask, what kind of tea are you drinking? Quality makes a HUGE difference. I hate all of the pre-bagged stuff you get in the grocery story, but a fresh loose leaf? Different animal altogether.
