Default A real cuppa !

I actually bought a real china tea pot today from T J Max, it was the only one on the shelf, cost me $9.99 + tax, came home and made a fresh pot of Tetleys

Result ? ......... it tastes like crap

Oh well .... back to making individual cups with single tea bags and the pot can be a decorative orniment

Wrong tea bags ....always went with Yorkshire tea or PG ...never a fan of Tetley ..unless it was bitter or mild ... Never one for china teapots ..never had enough money ...cheap tin one for us

Yorkshire Tea, is the only loose tea to use and the only bagged tea.

Once you appreciate the finer taste that is Yorkshire tea, all other tea may as well be dried sprouts.

What about Twinings Earl Grey (I know, bergamot-flavored crap, but I love it!!)

My husband drinks EG but hates Twinings....he prefers M&S EG and our stock is getting low. I only drink PG Tips...hate EG or any other type of tea.

@ Jersey Girl--

If you OH likes early grey, treat him to some Organic Earl grey from Whole Foods, It's made by Mighty leaf, if you can find it cheaper else where it's really really worth the cost.

Mighty Leaf is by far the second best tea in the world.

Bought a box at my local supermarket...box of 15 on offer for $5.99...normal price $8.99. The bags and leaves are very similar to EG I bring back from Asda. My husband said it's a very nice cuppa.

Try using PG tips then instead of that northern plebs tea.
