It might not seem obvious, but tea can be intensely sexy. If you're looking for a warm, sumptuous drink to share with your partner(s), there are teas that will knock your socks off. Some teas are great options for caffeine-sensitive sweeties or sober partners. Whether you're looking for a pick-me-up or a calm-you-down, there is a tea that can improve your evening (or morning) of carnal delights.

  Bachelor #1: Black Tea.

Health: Caffeinated (although not as much as coffee); can be dehydrating.
You know it from: "Breakfast" teas, Captain Picard's beloved "Earl Grey, hot," and most tea automatically served at your favorite Chinese restaurant.
Personality: Aggressive, with stamina!
Pet peeves: Being made "wimpy." A good black tea deserves a proper brewing!
Seeking: A sexy beast looking for a quick pick-me-up before a romp in the sheets.
Hotness: Piping! Dunk into water at 212 degrees (boiling).
Stamina: Can go the distance, but no marathon runner. Steep for 5 minutes.

  Bachelor #2: Green Tea.

Health: Excellent source of antioxidants. Less caffeinated than Bachelor #1, but still enough you might feel a pick-me-up.
You know it from: Jasmine tea, or perhaps green tea ice cream.
Most misunderstood quality: Some people think green tea tastes bitter because they've only had poorly-prepared stuff.
Personality: Herby/"grassy," ranging from intense to delicate.
Seeking: A health-conscious lover who would like a refreshing but not too sweet before-bonking beverage.
Hotness: Medium. Let this one slip into something comfortable at 160-180 degrees.
Stamina: Likes it nice and easy. Steep for 3 minutes, tops.

  Bachelor #3: White Tea.

Health: Said to be good for heart health and perhaps even help prevent cancer.
You know it from: Not much! White teas have yet to really hit it "big."
Most misunderstood quality: White teas do look quite pale in the cup, but can still pack quite a taste.
Personality: Delicate and nuanced.
Seeking: A sweetheart who enjoys the subtler forms of romance.
Hotness: Mild. Keep it at foreplay level between 150-160 degrees.
Stamina: It's all over pretty quick! 2 minutes take this tea from dried to fried.

  Bachelor #4: Herbal Tea.

Health: A cornucopia! Whatever you'd like, herbal tea can deliver, since the types are only as limited as herbs themselves.
You know it from: Chamomile tea as a soothing sleepy-time drink.
Most misunderstood quality: It's not technically "tea." There are no tea leaves in it, only herbs. (This also means no caffeine.)
Personality: As varied as the herbs within — check the ingredients!
Seeking: Anyone who knows what they want. Whether you're an anxious one who needs to relax before the big date or a slow-to-arouse sweetie wanting zip, you're covered.
Hotness: Blazing! Steep in 212-degree water (boiling).
Stamina: Crazy. Steep for 5-10 minutes, sometimes more — this one can go as long as you can!

Lust. Hunger. Thirst.  
More than just basic human needs designed to perpetuate the species, these complex motivations can lead us to the edge of obsession or euphoria, fulfillment or torment, despair or ecstasy. Without satisfaction, these desires can consume our lives. SexIs takes a closer look at the intersection between food and sex. What makes us lust for food? What foods increase our hunger for sex? In what ways do we creatively and compulsively feed our appetites? It’s food for thought.
