I usually drink the very Americanized version of tea that I'm sure no self-respecting Brit would ever drink: Constant Comment, full caffeine variety

I mostly drink black pekoe(plain). My favorite teas are paras tea(vanilla) and tea from the Good Earth(spice). I always drink caffeinated tea, as it seems to not have any effect on me day or night.

My current favorite is a chai/chai (Maharaja chai and Samurai chai) blend from Teavana. According to their web site, it's one of their most popular blends. It's a loose tea that seems rather expensive when purchased, but it lasts me a while.

I also like a lot of other teas, both real teas and herbal teas (which is really an infusion or decoction of herbs, not actually tea).

Herbal tea isn't really tea. It's actually called a tisane. Hotels used to have their own blends, just like bars and pubs had their own beers.

Decaf & herbal. As for herbal flavors, it depends on my mood. I don't like peppermint tea ever.

I love tea! I usually drink black tea in the morning and herbal at night. Sometimes I have a cup in the afternoon too, especially on the weekends and that can be anything!

About the only tea I don't drink is decaf. LOL For herbal my preference is peppermint. I like Lady Grey, Prince of Wales and Constant Comment. I also drink unsweetened tea instead of soda.

Usually full caffeine. I use loose Black tea from Tao of Tea which I order on line. My favorite flavor is Black Mango. I also buy a local store brand of Pomegranate-flavored green tea (it's in tea bags, aka as know as tea dust) and order a Three-Berry Herbal tea from Canada. It's not sold in the US. I drink hot tea in the winter and iced tea in the summer. The Black Mango makes excellent iced tea.

I don't consider caffeine when choosing tea, but rather black, oolong or green.

Tea! Do you go with full caffeine, a little decaf or herbal all the way? What flavor?
