I put green, but I drink a lot of pu er and oolong as well, but I think green would be my favourite, because I really love longjing tea. In Russia most people traditionally drink black tea, but I've never really liked it. There are some other traditional teas of different peoples in Russia, like Kalmyk tea, for example, which is made with milk and salt stirred in and left to simmer a long while - this has a good taste. Some people even make it with mutton fat as well.
But the good thing is, that in Moscow it is now possible to buy all kinds of teas, Chinese teas, Japanese teas. There are many shops specialising in tea.

My personal preference is green tea. And it's most often either Longjing 龍井, Bi Luo Chun 碧螺春 or Huangshan Maofeng 黄山毛峰. (I don't usually buy tea, but whenever we do, it's usually those types.)
I'm not too fond of black tea unless if it's a milk tea.
Flower teas tend to be naturally sweet, but I'm not too fond of its aftertaste (especially since I've tried chrysanthemum tea).

I voted for green tea; my favorite is ti guan yin. But I also like the black teas lapsong souchong (often called Russian caravan tea) and (sorry) Earl Grey.

I only drink green tea. When I was growing up, my mother had green and black tea in the house, but I never liked the black tea as it was too bitter. So I never really got used to only green tea and have been drinking it ever since.

I prefer the fragrance and sweet taste of green teas. The ones I like the best are those with a really fresh "mown grass" fragrance.

How come?  You have never had a black tea you enjoy?

 

White tea should be added to this poll, as that is my favorite.

To me, every tea has its own unique taste and smell. The best is to drink those naturally brewed ones rather than those bottled or packet ones

I love Pu'er which has unique taste for each drink; green tea is too cold and not good for health
