^ Oolong is a sort of cross between Green and Black teas, with Black tea being completely oxidized, and Green not at all. Oolong is partially oxidized. As for the literal colour of the leaves and finished product, it is a greenish colour.

I was bored, so I decided to find out which is overall the preferred type of tea among proggers.

I vote black.
Hardly the first poll on the subjectWink
 
for ex:
 
when drinking it hot, I prefer green tea, but when making my own ice tea, I always (or often) use black tea
 
In either case , a bit of sugar (rarely honey)... never milk 
 
and always lemon  if I add anything else in black tea
 
With green tea, I can add a licorice stick or a cinamon wood shaving... And these things can be used a few dozens of times... they still give

I mainly drink green tea but occasionally like a Lapsang Souchong or Earl Grey for an afternoon pick-me-up - no milk or sugar added.

All tea. Tea is the best.
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

I prefer Indian tchai. So creamy and spicy.
I am more of a coffee dude, drinking tea usually has to do with getting wasted. Been a while though...

Good, freshly brewed, unadulterated (as in "without any additives") green tea is the first choice. Good black tea with some Stevia (to take the edge off the bitterness) is the second choice. Beats any other hot drink, if you ask me. 

Occasionally, a slice a lemon is allowed; at the same time, any dairy products in tea (which is a common thing in the UK) amount to blasphemy Stern Smile

Assam or Lady Grey + a tiny drop of milk for preference here, although I do like roiboos (redbush) with a slice of lemon occasionally
