But tea is like coffee.....you get good ones, bad ones, cheap ones and dear ones. What suits one might not another, but, if ever you get the chance, open up a Tesco tea bag and look inside and I guarantee you it will resemble dust......

Used to like Aldi Red Label teabags, but they changed suppliers/reduced the weight and "weak & watery" ensued.

So now trying out other brands & blends (for soft water)

Tea being relatively cheap, I’m prepared to pay and try.

 

Mostly we drink Williamson’s English Breakfast or Earl Grey.

 

I only ever make it with bottled water from the espresso machine though. Tap water in Bath is down right offensive.

For day to day use I buy tea from Coffee Compass, I enjoy their loose leaf breakfast and earl grey.

 

Best tea spend yet is a £9 tea pot from IKEA, I've spent small fortunes on various tea brewing contraptions, the ikea Riklig teapot beats them all, its simple to clean and reduces the the inconvenience of using loose leaf tea.

Clipper tea most of the time. It's competitively priced, fair trade, unbleached bags & tastes good to boot.

Cheers!

A bit off-topic.

I am more into coffee than into tea (I suppose like most people at this forum).

You might have seen my post about the mobile game I am making (story about a coffee bean running away from the grinder).

So about a tea bag... well it becomes a villain in this story... It is not the tea bags - but the The Tea-bads ;)

Please check the links below and follow... if you are interested of course! ;)
