Been having a daily cuppa since ‘all this’ started and I’ve worked my way through all of the tea bags in the cupboard. I’m normally a green tea merchant but I need DiS Social Board guidance on which standard/everyday/English breakfast-type tea to choose…
Obviously Yorkshire is the standard answer, need to know if there are other good options.
- tea bag in a mug
- dash of milk
- no sugar)
All the main breakfast teas taste essentially the same and you’re all kidding yourselves if you think differently.
Not on teabook. Twinnings used to do a rooibos with strawberry and vanilla and it was like a big warm hug in a mug.
Think I can taste the difference between typhoo, Yorkshire and the others. But I’m not particularly snobby about it. I do prefer to make a pot at the weekend but tend not to in the week
It depends on the time:
Morning- pg tips with a bit of milk
Afternoon - mint tea (hot water, mint leaves, xylitol sweetener)
Evening- decaf bed time Yorkshire tea with milk
It pains me to say it, but Yorkshire.
Honourable mentions go to English Breakfast tea* and if you’re feeling a bit fancy (the connotations of which I really don’t get apart from the name), Earl Grey.
*even the 89p stuff from Lidl
PG Tips is horrific. Probably made from minced up chimps, and I don’t mean the 2010 global mega hit by Foster the People.
