    Do you drink your tea with the tea bag in, or out?

    What else do you put it in,honey,sugar,lemon? Do you have a special tea pot with tea cups?

    Neither, I don't use the disgusting things, I make tea in a pot with tea leaves.  No sweetener of any kind, just a splash of milk, or black.  Sometimes I may use lemon.

    I almost always drink herbal teas and I always leave the tea bag on. It has never become too strong. But if I have to drink black or green tea, I take the tea bag out because otherwise the tea is going to be too strong.

    And I don't use any sweeteners or anything else.

    I always remove my tea bag after it's done steeping(if I even use a tea bag in the first place, loose teas are way better!). Depending on the tea, leaving it in can cause the tea to become bitter or otherwise not as flavorful. I drink most of my teas straight but some black teas I will add a tiny bit of agave nectar or honey to. I have a tea pot but no matching tea cups yet.

    Bag in. If it is Sleepytime or Earl Gray, I usually use two spoonfulls of sugar. If it is Green tea, there is usually three spoonfulls of honey with some cinnamon. No, but I would love to get a special tea pot. Reminds me to put it on the grocery list. But I actually have a little collection of tea sets going...

    Never with the teabag in. I don't like how strong it becomes. I put either sugar or honey but mostly brown sugar, no milk.

    I drink my tea with the bag out. I let my tea steep in the pan for about 3 minutes. It really keeps the flavor of the tea strong but not overpowering. I then add about a 1/2 inch to and 1 inch of organic whole milk depending on my mood. Sometimes I skip the milk but only if the tea flavor sparkles on its own.

    Neither! I prefer loose leaf yerba mate in a gourd and sipped via a bombilla. Sometimes I add a little honey.

    I like leaving the bag in, I use sugar and milk, I prefer black tea with milk, wrote a hub about it. I also love green tea. I also leave the bag in or the loose tea leaves.

    My husband and I steep for 4-5 minutes and then take it out. If you leave it in too long I believe it ruins the flavor.
