- Double Bagging
Not entirely sure what’s going on but I can’t get a decent strength cuppa out of PG Tips anymore without chucking a couple of bags in my mug. Never used to be a problem. I know PG isn’t exactly top drawer but has always been fine for day to day. Another thing to blame on Brexit?Posted 4 days agospacemonkeyMember
I’ve resorted to double-bagging for the last 2-3 years due to the water darn sarf being so shit. And I leave the bags in the whole time – no removing whatsoever until the brew has been downed.
Up in the northwest I’ll happily settle for a single bag but absolutely no chance back home – that’d be like making a cup of hot milk.

You’re not one of these who puts the milk in, then the tea bag then the hot water are you? If so there is no hope.
1. Pre heat your mug with water from the freshly boiled kettle.
2. re-boil the kettle.
3. in one swift manoeuvre, empty the mug, toss in the tea bag and pour the boiling water in while its still bubbling as soon after the kettle switch has clicked off
4. let it brew a while
5. don’t squeeze the bag, remove, let it drain then discard
6. add milk or whatever to taste
Oh yeah, PG tips not great. Twinings every day or Yorkshire Tea. Life is too short for loose leaf…save that for retirement.Posted 4 days agobikebouySubscriber
Don’t think so. The colour is all shitty as well. Not a nice golden colour any more. Maybe since they made their tea bags biodegradable?
That’s a good point, I bought some Waitrose own branded tea a week ago and that too has brown’ish bags now..
Can’t remember the last time I drank PG (knowingly) so maybe you’ll just have to DB em’ until they run out.
Yorkshire Tea does taste like soap 👍 I mentioned this last year to the wife who said “you hate everything about Yorkshire don’t you?” I don’t actually, but their Tea does indeed taste like soap.Posted 4 days ago
