    Teabags? This is not the STW Niche Way!

    Loose leaf all the way! It really brings the tea alive. As long as you’re using the right capacity teapot, obviously.

    So the OS will be releasing some ‘Dr Livingstone’ maps, I presume.

    Very good. 🙂

    Try the Peasant’s Revolt Peanuts. Very moreish.

    You do realise that data collected by Scott’s team is still used today?

    He was never actually racing to the Pole and Amundsen was. He traveled very light and didn’t do any serious science.

    Just saying like.

    Whats the favoured STW teabag-tearing gizmo for loose leaf tea? I’ve always just torn the teabags open by hand but presumably theres something made by Gaggia or Dualit or Smeg (or Tassimo) that can tear the bags open in a measurably more expensive way.

    You invalidated yourself.

    Yorkshire does it for me usually. Leave the bag in because i’m too lazy to start poncing about waiting for it to brew properly before putting milk in

    You need to take it out for a while. Maybe some time.

    Then you’ve just gone from stale dust in bags to stale dust.

    Loose leaf is generaly made from younger leaves, which don’t just taste better, but have had less time to accumulate heavy metals and fluoride from the soil/air, so less toxic too.

    so less toxic too.

    WTF? Are you saying tea is toxic?

    I thought all the evidence supports the opposite view?

    Guys, it has to be proper tea leaves in a bone china teapot and served obviously in a bone china cup and saucer. Milk first naturally.

    HTH. 🙂

    I use this, it holds a pint which is just the right amount as it turns out;

    Yes – but whats the most middle class way to achieve that? What the most optimal way I can make that transition without just tearing the bags with my bare hands?

    “Ultimate Tea Bag”, eh?

    THIS is the ultimate tea bag:

    I don’t mean to urinate on your chips but there is only one teabag and that is Marks and Spencer’s LUXURY GOLD. There’s no going back after trying these.

    Real men (and women) drink Yorkshire Gold. If looking for the loose leaf variety, I’m sure that the guys at Singletrack will concur that the tea shop in the indoor market in Todmorden has a wide choice of excellent varieties. The Russian caravan will have you beating off bandits and facing down recalcitrant Yaks in no time.

    Supermarket own-brands? Not likely (though I’ll drink the M&S stuff at a pinch if I’ve already been through the compost heap to extract the old Yorkshire bags..)

    That said that there Ringtons Gold linked to above looks like it could be a mighty fine cup of char. From what they say on the site, the only way the production process could be improved would be if each teabag was individually rolled on the inner thighs of a lusty virgin. Will definitely be placing my order and taking my chance 🙂

    CO-OP 99, as prescribed by the doctor 😀

    WTF? Are you saying tea is toxic?

    Something about the plant makes it absorb metals and fluoride aparently, the older the leaves, the more highly concentrated the bad stuff is. But big old leaves are cheep an therefore get used in teabags. Looseleaf and more expensive teas use younger leaves with less of the bad stuff.

    http://www.nhs.uk/news/2013/07July/Pages/do-fluoride-levels-in-cheap-tea-pose-a-health-risk.aspx

    2 pints (4 mugs) of cheep tea = aprox 100% of the Fluoride RDA, but add on toothpaste and drinking water (or just more tea) and it could be much higher, IIRC the max you should have is about 2x the RDA.

    Yorkshire tea in a Dunoon Glencoe or Cotswold fine bone china bike mug; large and extra large.

    Twinnings Liquorice tea is also rather pleasant but an acquired taste.

    2 bags of D J Miles. Bags instructed to remain in for the duration, ie not just the brewing, but also the supping. Proper brew.
