Any Tea drinkers?

The past 6 months i stopped taking milk in my tea and coffee, now i mostly drink tea. In the last 2 months ive been drinking peppermint tea, and now ive started on lemon and ginger.. i was wondering what tea`s some of you lot might drink and what are the benefits i just find them relaxing and better tasting than water.

Re: Any Tea drinkers?

Been drinking tea for over 3 score year and ten !....  the best tea is "yorkshire tea"...  ( Yokshu Tee  if you play golf ! ! ) 

 

tried those so called "fruity teas"... but they are just like hot water and a juice extract..  a bit "naff"...

 

got to have at least 4 to 6 mug fulls a day.. two sugars and a drop of milk... can`t be drinking "Black Tea"... almost like ( I assume ) drinking hot vinegar... ( assumed, because I have never done that  ! ! !  Grin )

 

We had a genuine China man, come to stay with us for 4 weeks, and he brought his own "green tea bags" with him,.... politeness required me to partake with him... but after the first one... no more.. ! ! ..

In his/her infinite wisdom God created both Coffee and Beer - I don't need tea. Grin

Re: Any Tea drinkers?

Not a tea drinker and prefer milky coffee and 3 sugars.

 

Last year I did have a black coffee which wasn't as bad as I expected it to be but wouldn't have it by choice.

I haven't drank tea in 30+ years, I much prefer black machine made coffee from my DeLonghi it's even good enough to drink in bed.

Re: Any Tea drinkers?

For anyone who likes filtered coffee , i can highly recommend Aldi's specially Selected Ethiopian Coffee.
I gave it a try ( been using it it ever since), after reading it came top in a taste test. Great with or without milk

Re: Any Tea drinkers?

Throughout the day Instant coffee or Tetley tea whichever takes my fancy.

Both with a little milk and no sugar.

I had to learn how to make Indian tea but I'm not partial to it.

Tea bag, milk, sugar, pieces of cinnamon bark, green cardamoms and cloves.

Sainsbury's Assam tea. Brewed for 5 minutes with still boiling water poured into a pre-warmed china pot. Milk in the cup first of course.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

@Strat when in site offices most recently Saudi Arabia the tea boy would make cha if requested. It was stewed tea with cinnamon condensed milk and other spices. It was poured from a great hight from one hand to the other which was all part of the theatre. Now I'm into coffee pods (cafe au lait and cappuccino) Cool smiley

Re: Any Tea drinkers?

sussssssssssssh!! but, I actually like PG Tips, no sugar and moderately milky (tea bags, can't be bothered with all that snobbish fancy loose tea messing about, never really noticed any serious difference in the taste anyway which ever way its made, however much the maker insists that I don't know what I'm talking about)

For a bloke of my age, I seem to be in a minority as I don't like tea you can stand the spoon up in.

I do insist in boiling water though, not boiled water!!

Living in a seriously hard-water area, if I remember, I do like the kettle filled with filtered water.

But the way I like it least is from fast-food outlet boiler, that makes tea with super-heated water that takes four hours to cool down enough so it doesn't scold the tongue.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
