- Tea Drinkers: Assemble!
I feel I don’t drink enough tea, therefore: Are they all much of a muchness, or are some bags superior to others? I note from one newspaper story that supermarket own brands scored quite highly, compared to posher brands.
Note: I’m not looking for posh, loose-leaf teas, as I really can’t be bothered. Just bog standard kettle, water, mug, splash of milk-type affairs 8)Posted 2 years agoCougarSubscriber
Ok. You say you don’t want faff, but. All tea bags are basically crap tea.
Get one of these.
It’ll let you use loose leaf tea with next to no faff, it’s the convenience of a teabag, brew as such and then shake into the bin when done.Posted 2 years agoMalvern RiderMember
Rooibos Earl Grey. Mmmmm.
^ this. I get my caffeine from coffee but drink mostly tea. We buy Tick Tock brand Earl Grey Roobois in bulk online. It goes very well with a splash of Koko milk and sugar IMO. I do like regular black tea, plainor earl grey – but given the choice redbush hit the spot for me after the first few tries.Posted 2 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
Assam – posh builder tea lovely golden colour and strong flavour don’t drink it all the time as it needs a little break from it to really appreciate how good it is.
I also like /rate
Earl and Lady grey – no milk
Sainsbury’s red label as above
Rooibos which isn’t strictly tea
Lifeboat tea is quite a nice brew
Some are acquired tastes.
Try a range of stuff.
I personally can’t stand Tetley or Typhoo, not keen on twining everyday (something nearly everyone else I know likes) but like a lot of their others.
What I’m trying to say is your pallet and preferences may vary so experiment and change brands and tea types to get the most from it (like wine or proper beer variety is best :-))Posted 2 years agosuburbanreubenMember

WTF? Earl Grey is bad enough but Earl Grey with Koko milk?
Tea that tastes like Sun screen. Yum!Posted 2 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
I can speak with some authority on this subject, generations of tea drinkers in my family have passed down their knowledge. Firstly chuck those tea bags in the bin or on the compost heap. Secondly get a water filter, use a china tea pot and add loose tea to it – Sainsbury’s Red Label is quite acceptable. Milk first obviously and don’t forget to use a tea strainer.Posted 2 years agoaphex_2kMember
Yorkshire. But imported English ones, not the “adapted for the Australian market, smaller tea bags as Aussies don’t like a proper brew” sh!t we have on our shelves here in Perth. They’re half the size! Any time I get the relos over they cram as many into their cases as they can fit.Posted 2 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
A range from herePosted 2 years ago
All loose leaf, made with a variety of implements to hold said leaves and dispose easily. Wonderful stuff.
Current fav is the London Breakfast
Nice smokey taste but not as strong as a Russian Caravan
Sydney Breakfast is a close second
