Tea in any of a multiple of forms does me!

Currently liking Whittards Nettle, Aloe and Chamomile.

First cuppa of the day is usually Scottish Blend but we're currently on Twinnings everyday tea which is rather growing on me!

Dilma-two strong bags in a pot makes two cups each ...mmmm tea.
Also you can chuck anything in boiled water and I will give it a go!
...Except Nerada which is an Australian Tea- pesticide free but alarmingly orange and tastes like grass glippings!

Has to be Yorkshire! When I run out in France I'll buy anything I can get though - Tetley's, PG Tips, etc.
Growing old is much better then the alternative!

hmmmm.....Yorkshire Gold (loose) tea at home, and the very seldom cup of Whittards Best of British tea here. I have a packet stashed away for emergencies where the flatmate can't find it.

We have Lipton's Yellow teabags for everyday use, which i find a bit weak, but she's not getting her hands on the better stuff.

I think i'd kill for some Yorkshire teabags though, the Whittards just doesn't cut it as well.

However...for favourite of all time, would drink it forever tea, it has to be Whittard's Gypsy Caravan (or romany caravan....something like that) which is strong and flavourful and wonderful...

*starts salivating and puts the kettle on...*
