What's the best tea?

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.

(FYI:

  • tea bag in a mug
  • dash of milk
  • no sugar)

loose leaf.

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

Remember people used to pretend to be REALLY into tea? Then it was gin, then dogs. What is it now?

garlic bread?

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.

Try not to think about that last post and immerse yourselves in these lovely, lovely maps :rose::rose::rose::rose::rose:

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

Assam is the best tea.
