I like a good cuppa and depending on the situation it can be anything from Yorkshire tea to a cup of Chinese white tea.Posted 4 months ago
Normally I buy more specialist teas from Canton tea but wondered what other tea lovers on here drink and where do you buy it from?
Are there any exciting new teas or blends which you look forwards to drinking?chewkwMember
Strong loose Assam or Ceylon tea for me with plenty of sugar NO milk with fresh mint leaf if I have some. 😛
I have tried many other tea but the price value taste is not worth the money so I stick to reasonable price brands.
I think I have about 16 kg of Assam tea at the moment, not to mention other Chinese green tea etc … 😛Posted 4 months agogreatbeardedoneMember

On the odd occasion that I’ve drank tea from the unbagged leaves, this has been fantastic.Posted 4 months agoAlexSimonSubscriber
I’m a big fan of using a proper tea set occasionally.
I like the Oolongs – the lighter less caramel ones. like Li Shan, or variations of High Mountain Taiwanese Oolongs.
So a cheapish one is Jade Oolong from http://www.eastteas.com
Good old Silver Needle is also to my taste (and cheap)
For standard milky tea, I stick to Yorkshire Tea 🙂Posted 4 months ago
You an’ all.
Yegods did I just get sn

Listen, proper tea is normal tea. And normal tea is PG Tips in bags.
I know this because I know some people who will always snub an Earl Grey, (let alone a rooibos, which is met with confusion, ugly-faced scoffing and vocal derision) and instead ask for ‘proper tea’ or else no tea. At home they always drink PG Tips. Likewise, if you offer them ‘black tea’ instead of ‘proper tea’ you’ll get more than some funny looks. Coffee, likewise, is ‘meh, not normal and too modern/trendy’. Got the picture?
Conclusion: If it’s not PG Tips, then your tea is neither proper or normal’. If you now claim ‘normal’ to be ‘subjective’, then your own argument self-destructs*
