I drink tea at work because the standard of tea making seems more consistent than that of the coffee making.

Mango green tea is alright.

Earl Grey. Only.

Assam is lovely as is English breakfast.

Don't mind lady or earl grey and occasional like some Lapsang Souchong.

Like tea bags or leaves.

I'm assuming those of you saying you drink Yorkshire Tea take it with sugar, or at least with milk?

Don't drink the stuff or coffee for that matter. Tried tea once and it just just seemed like fairly rank tasting dirty water, haven't even tasted coffee as the smell is so off putting.

Other than the odd hot chocolate or a lemsip when I'm ill I can't be doing with hot drinks.

Actually stopped drinking coffee in the house, just loss of tea. Quite like a hoji cha if I'm feeling fancy.

I don't generally drink tea. Certainly not 'normal' tea anyway, maybe the occasional cup of Earl Grey or Lady Grey. Some green tea is okay (went to Hong Kong/China a while ago and was drinking it all the damn time) and I quite like a lemon & ginger tea that a mate has. Iced tea is more my kinda thing - wish it was bigger here.

Got to be one of most vile teas I’ve had. If you ever wanted to drink a bonfire, try it out.

Clippers English breakfast has been my current go to :wub:

Lapsang is a lovely tea, but I can understand people not liking it. It's a bit like an Islay whisky.

Green tea with orange and lotus flower is worth a squirt if you like the flavoured green teas.

And you get a smoother, more controlled brew with less astringency if you pour hot water onto milk. In my opinion...

Can you use the phrase 'worth a squirt' in that context?

I don't drink tea, but I've been told I'm good at making it.

Although that might just be a lazy wife using flattery to get me to make her cups of tea

Yes but you may find the tea tastes a bit salty afterwards.

A mug

Water boiled to 85C-90C

PG Tips - the tip of bag floats on the top so you can pick it out with your fingers and give the bag a squeeze and save yourself dirtying a spoon. You're welcome ;)

A splash of milk ONLY AFTER the bag has been removed. People who put milk in before adding hot water need to be fired of in to outer space

Currently enjoying a Mango and Bergamot Green Tea so...yes I do. I tend to drink more coffee these days as I think I'm addicted to caffeine but I do enjoy a nice cup of some pretentious sounding melange at night.

Lots of health benefits for both.

I train my junior colleagues to make tea to my standard. In return I bring in and make delicious coffee!
