Yorkshire tea (blend for hard water) or Earl Grey. Or camomile. Or mint tea with mint from the garden, don't like the tea bags.

And I can't stand weak tea. My mother's tea is HORRENDOUS. I mean I'm fond of her, but, God, that awful tea!

Cool. Moroccon mint tea has mint from the garden in it but also a green tea bag brewed in with it... with a touch of sugar it is lovely.

The three teas i'm trying at the moment are all by Twinings. It's certainly distracting me from drinking so much Lavazza coffee.

I like it with cheese and crackers.

Ahhhh... Earl Grey.

Although recently I am enjoying Sainsbury's Taste the difference Jasmine loose leaf tea. Really quenches the thirst, so refreshing, warming, comforting... Whatever you need it for, really!! I didn't take to it the first time I tried it, but after a wild swimming holiday in Yorkshire, I couldn't get enough of it to warm up with after a swim!!

Usually Sainsbury's Organic loose tea with a bit of Earl Grey mixed in. You just can't beat a good cuppa.
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

That's weird, I've just realised I've not been getting any ads, for ages! Where are they - I demand spuriously linked ads with my Ish :lol:

Oh and back on topic, since the gal has moved in we're now buying Tetley's Extra Strong as well :pukeright:

Twinnings English Breakfast in morning, and a gentle Earl Grey in afternoon.

didn't realise I was so addicted until first time I went abroad and couldn't get a cuppa - was crawling the walls by day 2!

Like the chai latte idea - will definitely try that - I buy it in powdered form at the moment but it's quite expensive

Which plant is it? Jasminum sambac? I read recently that it has to be kept at a minimum temperature of 13 - 15 degrees C?
