Welcome to the Tea thread!

We talk about Tea, discuss Tea & perhaps show off your Tea, etc

So to begin…

What kind of Tea do you drink?

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot!

😉

I wish - I just can’t stand the stuff, even the smell (which isn’t great when living in Blighty).

Am told Yorkshire tea is ‘quite nice’ from a few mates.


 

What about yourself, paja?

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

The missus loves lemon and ginger tea as well - you people with acquired tastes 😃

 

I do drink the occasional ‘yerba mate’ - a bit like bitter green tea (so I’m told) - and meant to be quite a bit healthier than the usual tea or coffee; fair few nutrients in there and tastes pretty good (if you like bitter drinks).

Seems to be quite popular with athletes and people wishing to lose a bit of weight too, along with those wishing to boost immune systems (though I’ve no idea if it works - or how well it does work).

PG Tips Loose Leaf. Just made a pot right now. I live in Belize, so until January i was having to drink pyramid bags, but now a local shop has started importing real tea, so i’m a happy bunny.

“Ow! It`s hot in here, the butter in my pocket is melting!”

You can drink tea with vodka, or brandy. Like with coffee?

GF sent me a variety pack of teas, and I’ve been having fun with them (though she still wants to hook me up with a proper Pu’erh cake)

  • Kirkland Green Tea
  • Dynasty Chinese Restaurant Tea (oolong Jasmine Green Tea mix)
  • Asian Taste Chrysantemum and Pu-er Tea
  • Red Rose Original Black Tea
  • Numi Emperor’s Pu-erh
  • a ball of loose leaf blooming white tea (Saving that for a special occasion)

Nothing particularly special, but it was a nice pack and I’ve been enjoying them.
