Different coloured tea

A cold November afternoon and the question gets asked 'cup of tea?' Sounds simple enough but currently at head office there are three tea drinkers and we all go for a different colour; traditional black (though served with milk), green, and red (any form of red berry/fruit tea). With two new people set to join the team in the near future it makes me wonder if they too will opt for a different colour. Perhaps white, yellow or the rarer blue tea? Or maybe something with blackcurrant making it purple tea? It’s seems that Peppermint has become the odd-tea-out for us as calling it by a colour would just confuse the issue with green tea. At least we all drink our coffee black!

Too bad; true blue tea would be an appealing novelty ... I tend toward orange pekoe throughout the day, and darjeeling or camomile in the evening.
