I find Turkish tea excellent. It tastes so simple yet is so hard to reproduce at home.

I once tried some Korean tea, which you have while eating lunch, a green one with a taste of peanut. Nice experience.

As sister Layla said, tea made by khojas - is it masala chai?

That good old English Breakfast or Earl Gray. First days in the UK, I got served tea by my roommate's mother and experienced my first cultural awkwardness when I pronounced those two word : "no milk". Learnt to love it with milk with time.

I like tea with no milk, if put milk,It tastes a bit strange, perhaps this is the cultural difference.

We have a tea cafe near our place with dozens of teas from around the world on offer. I am spoiled for choice but I think in time I'm going to try many of them.

It's new so I went there last night to try it out.

A person who prefers Tapal teas over Lipton's Yellow Label knows the difference between good tea and hot water! :D

I still don't get why people instinctively go for Yellow Label which Tapal (and its variants such as Tezdum) are infinitely better. It's probably the same habit by which drink Pepsi instead of Coca Cola. In that case too, the latter is infinitely better in taste than the former. Khair, I digress...

We use this for group chai sessions. It's Tapal's and it's 30% stronger than Danedar.

    • There is a popular saying: "Knowledge without deed is nothing". This saying applies to some of the things but according to my speculation doesn't work for everything. For example, if ilm is: "Allah is 1" and the practical deed one might say is to "avoid shirk". Now, I truly believe and I gain knowledge. How about proton, neutron and electron revolve around nucleus? And proton has other particles in it etc. What could be the deed of this knowledge? Is it just information, then schools and university are mostly focusing on learning information rather than the true knowledge?
    • Hypothetically they can, but it seems more likely that they will slow access to sites that don't pay a ransom, not cut them off entirely. 
    • This reminds  me the following  hadith:  Ali ul Ma'a ul haq wal haq ma'a Ali Imam Ali is with haq and haq is with Ali As.  Ali ul Ma'a ul Quran wal Quran ma'a Ali. Imam Ali is with quran and quran  is with Ali As.  (This also provides the evidence for the hadith thaqlayn.) wasalam
    • Yes i own a car and i drive as well .   Its necessity in this part of the world ...... Positive : Ease your movement  Negative : Normally i dont swear at all .but while driving i swear every minute ......:))
