Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
ok we have a coffee thread, so how about a tea thread

i like tea, but i like quite a lot of milk in it so i dont really do posh or fruit teas, just ordinary bags.

    I used to hate tea as a kid now I might drink it about 3 times a week but with loads of milk and brown sugar.

    ah but a big problem is how many people have ever had the real stuff? straight from the leaf rather than a prepackaged teabag? (although even that is lovely)

    :yes:

    It is possibly one of the best things ever. I can't live without tea.

    Last year I tried to give it up for lent and I couldn't. I was drinking tea again after a week :|

    So yes, tea with a bit of milk and no sugars is teh best.

    I have question thats to do with coffee and not tea so dont shout ok. Coffee beans come from the same plant that you get cocain from right, its just that ones from the bean and the other is from the leaf, right?
    And tea is better than coffee in my opinion

    I always thought that coffee came from a coffee plant and cocaine came from a coca plant...
    Thats what I wanna know, are they infact the same plant, and which one does chocolate belong to?

    I have my tea, with a normal amount of (skimmed) milk, and a splenda sweetener.

    I drink tea, 3-4 times a day at least...

    Sugar in tea is wrong on so many levels.

    I had curry for my tea.

    Tea has to be nicely brewed and just a touch of milk......and one sugar thank you :)

    I am allowed to use Typhoo tea bags, yeah :D

    Tea - I love it, as long as it isn't butchered in the making.

    The brewing container - be it mug or pot should be warmed.

    While I prefer leaves, they are fiddly so I generally use a good quality teabag.
    (But not Tetley - these seem to be all colour and no flavour.)

    The water must be boiling when poured onto the tea[bag];

    allow the tea time to brew - 150 seconds minimum

    When making in the mug DO NOT add the milk (if taken) until the tea bag has been removed.


    Is this too hard, am I too demanding? I think not.

    I like my tea milky with half a teaspoon of sugar. (Yes Im picky!) I dont drink it that often, maybe have one or two a day, but I can live without it. Dont like coffee, I think it tastes like mud. Im not bothered about the teabag really, as long as its not Yorkshire tea and its not Marks and Spencers own.
