Terrifically important question:
WHAT KINDS OF TEA ARE COMMON IN CANADA?

I'm from USA New England, so I've got a somewhat watered down London style of tea-drinking.
Apparently the entirety of the American South is allergic to proper tea entirely. smilies/icon_gonk.gif I'm sure their preparation is just as unorthodox and terrifying. (....LIPTON, THOUGH? SERIOUSLY?? THAT'S THE MOST HORRID AWFUL WATERED DOWN CRAP UGGGGHHHHHH LIPTON IS LIKE AGAINST MY RELIGION
/DISOWNS THE CAFE BOSSES
/DISOWNS THEM!)

Back when I almost worked in a teashop and went through my self-educational tea blitz, I learnt about Russian and Polish and British and Indian and Chinese and Japanese traditions of teamaking and consuming-
but nothing about North America.
That seems to be a grievous oversight on my part. smilies/icon_stare.gif Somehow though, I don't regret it. Eurgh.

Like I love sweet tea too, but Zi and Miss Black! What the hell! That'S NOT EVEN TEA GODDAMMIT HDU-

we brew maple leaves in maple syrup or ice water and drink it in the snow
