Boil water for tea you say?

For the most part I do not drink tea on a regular basis per se. I usually drink coffee (which I'm Jonesing for really bad right now.) But in the past I have under certain circumstances brewed up some tea to take the chill off. Especially back in the days when I spent a lot of time backpacking and exploring the wilds.

Looking at the list of options I will admit to using the following at one time or another:

I am horribly addicted to ice tea. I would have never bought this for myself but a friend of mine gave me a Mr. Coffee™ iced tea maker. That gets fired up all the time, especially when my mint is growing, to make iced tea.

Somehow I never developed a taste for hot tea.
