I drink tea instead of water everyday so I'm in love with the smell of tea
My black tea of choice is Harmatan Noir By PG, the tea note is quite similar to the one used in T42 but instead of being warm and spicy, this one is minty and very cold
I've yet to find a green tea scent that I really like
I'm a fan of green tea, not too keen on black tea.
So my vote goes to Yang. I also like Roger & Gallet The Vert.
Current top 5:
1. Frederic Malle The Night
2. Roja Dove Sultanate of Oman
3. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
4. SHL 777 Black Gemstone
5. Rasasi Tobacco Blaze

Duel: one of the main notes is... Holly? Huh. I dated a Holly once. I don't remember her smelling particularly good. I'm not saying she smelled bad... but... well... she wasn't exactly noteworthy. Perhaps Annick Goutal thinks otherwise.
Interestingly (or not?) I don't smell any tea in Bvlgari Black, though I realize that tea is part of what combines to make up the rubber note. Bvlgari Black is something anyone who likes dark scents should own since it can be had for as little as $25 online. Thumbs way up on that recommendation.

Gucci Pour Homme II
Im a big fan of GPHII. Might be my favorite scent that I've smelt so far.
Thanks for participating, everybody. For a long time, Gucci pH II looked like a clear winner, but Tea for Two has almost caught up with it by now, the two of them running far ahead of all the other contenders. Further down, Silver Mountain Water is in 3rd position just ahead of Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert. At the other end of the scale, five fragrances have yet to score a single vote. Very interesting!
Thanks again, guys - and do feel free to go on voting. The poll stays open!
My belated votes: from this list, Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, Gucci PH II and Agua de Loewe are among my favorites.
I voted Gucci PH II for sentimental reasons (and because it is a great fragrance) . SMW is a close second and one that I simply do not wear enough.
Current Top Ten:
1) Polo Crest
2) Chypre Palatin
3) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
4) One Man Show Gold Edition
5) Kouros (Vintage)
7) Tobacco Vanille
8) Interlude Man
9) More than Words
10) Ungaro II (Vintage)
I am a fan of Tea for Two but not for any tea note. To me (and noted by others when I wear it) Tea for Two projects a nearly palpable tobacco smoke note.

Has to be gucci ii
cdg tea,,,,from the leaves series...best black tea note with smokiness
buglari pour home soir
14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it
Still tea for two for me!
Gucci Pour Homme II...Usually buck the trend, but not in this case. II is a flat out masterpiece.

Another vote for Creed's Silver Mountain Water. my personal favorite Creed.
I am entranced by Murdock's Black Tea though and it runs a close second. Thanks in part to my nephew bringing this over the pond to me.
Murdock's Black tea is simply the best out there....
GPH II gets my vote. Now if they would just release an extreme version....
People seem to like GPH II a lot. All I have is a mini of the stuff I must admit, but my impression's been that Tea for Two has considerably more punch to it, spray for spray.
I voted for GPHII and SMW.
