do you mean herbal teas? a lot of herbs are good plain (mint, lemon balm, lemongrass...). one of my favorite combos though, is rosemary, allspice and a bit of orange peel. it sounds weird, but it is really yummy with a bit of sweetener!

You can find them at most places that sell herbal supplies- I know Le Melenge and MMS have them:

unless you really want bags for their own sake, loose tea works fine too. Reusable strainers, baskets, balls, and tea-socks abound.

My favorite combo for a pot of tea is one bag each of green tea, camomile, mint, then a slice of chrystalized ginger torn to peaces and 4 cups of water Cheesy  you could just as easily do one table spoon each instead of a bag each.  It is just cheeper for me to get the tea at costco $30 lose and $15 baged at costco for twice as many servings. . .

The only other 'tea' I've made is throwing fresh mint in a pot of water. . .papermint is my all time fave!

Here's an added suggestion:
to make your tea taste sweeter, add in honey. It's natural and better for you than sugar.

whole foods - and the local hippie vegan grocery store in my town - sell green and black teas in bulk, tea bags, and herbs and things like rose petals, juniper berries, ginger, etc.  i had a tea blend when i lived in poland that i've been trying to duplicate, and it's something like this:  2 parts orange pekote to 1 part darjeeling, with rose petals, ginger cubes, golden rasins, a cinnimon stick broken up, and a broken vanilla bean.

experiment, even with combos that sound gross.  you'd be surprised what tastes good in tea.
