I'm going to start drinking fancy teas to see if that doesn't fill me

up evenings. What is your favourite herbal/non herbal tea?

1. A nice, spicy, peppery complex Chai. Hey - I just had a big bowl of watermelon -

that filled me up nicely!

4. I love chai but am used to it bubbling in a pot of milk on a stove with star anise

and other spices floating around in it. I never thought about drinking it strait. But that is what I need. Something calorie free. Thanks. I'll get some.

5. Harney and Son Green Tea with Thai flavors

Friend gave it to me for Christmas and it is wonderful! Coconut, vanilla, lemongrass and ginger. The fragrance from it is incredible too and my local supermarket carries it in the fancy tea section. I like a cuppa at night, very satisfying.

7. Constant Comment Tea may be the only one I enjoy without milk or sweetener.

.
.
.
If you can find it, Constant Comment Green Tea is even better (I can drink green tea
without -- but the CC is much better).
.
Constant Comment has strong flavors of orange and spices.
.
.
.
And it's fairly "filling".
.
.
.
If you can, find a fairly simple Asian tea set and Google asian tea rituals -- make something of
them that's your own (a small bell or gong can add to the atmosphere). The serious "ritual"
aspect can be exceptionally calming and restorative.

10. Lately? Red tea.

If you want to know all the teas I like, it'll take awhile to say.

11. Bigelow's Lemon Lift or Constant Comment. I mail-order the decaf versions

too, when supermarkets don't stock them. I drink one or the other pretty much every night.

20. Stash used to have a chocolate hazelnut

that I absolutely loved but I haven't been able to find it in over a year now. I'm not usually one that can substitute other things when I have a chocolate craving but that really hit the spot. I wonder if they stopped making it or maybe they just don't carry it around here anymore.

15. I like two

1. Belgian Chocolate Rooibos
2. Carmel Rooibos

I like both of these and couldn't really select only one as a favorite.

You can add Splenda or whatever non-sugar sweetener you like.

17. have you thought of juices? Ones you make yourself?

Most people have them for breakfast, but a nicely blended veggie juice or an apple, beet, carrot and mint juice could be nice -- flavorful and filling. A lot of times I'll substitute ginger for mint just because it is easier to find. If you go the veggie route, these juices will have very few calories, too.

Here are a few: http://www.wholeliving.com/155628/healthy-breakfast-juices/@center/155850/healthy-breakfasts#/151378


As for teas, I look for "Yogi" brand teas - they have some nice, relaxing evening teas, some healthy teas, etc. They have an Egyptian Mint tea that is really nice - check out Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=yogi+tea

19. recently I started drinking "mugicha", a roasted Barley tea



You can order it here:

I bought a lot of it, and its really quite refreshing, especially on hot days.

21. Green Tea is my favorite

Because it's supposedly very good for you and it doesn't stain your teeth like coffee or darker teas.
