Funny, we have Yorkshire teabags at work and I would swear they’re round confused

Thank you.

It’s a very boring back story but basically our tea has started tasting disgusting and I wanted to rule out having mixed up the bags with an inferior bag whilst decanting.

Love this grin

Next question: Now that I’ve ruled out having accidentally filled the caddy with lockdown substitution tea does anyone have any idea why our tea has suddenly started tasting gross?

Have you recently de-scaled the kettle? Bleached your cups?

Is this the only thing that tastes wrong?

Thisisnotnormal69 Thu 08-Oct-20 14:25:04

Is it just you that finds it disgusting or others too?

Has someone brought in the biscuits tea bags?

Did you buy de caff ones by mistake or ones for hard water?

Is it just you? When dh had Covid he could not bear the taste of tea and didn't drink any for about 10 days, whereas normally he's a several mugs a day man.

Don't get me started on Yorkshire Tea. In Yorkshire we call it 'having a cup of tea, or' mashing the tea' if it's in a pot. Yorkshire people do not have 'a brew'.
I hate those stupid adverts with a passion because they were made by clueless idiots

Are you pregnant? I couldn't stand tea when I was pregnant.

Alicenwonderland Thu 08-Oct-20 14:36:43

I wondered if you are pregnant too. I'm a tea addict (my parents put it in my bottle!) but couldn't bear it when I was pregnant.

I'm from Yorkshire and I have a brew!

OP could you be pregnant? Tea tasted like ash when I was pg with DC3 it one of the first signs.

Maybe you've just gone off it though, we used Tetley for years, we ran out one day and the corner shop only had Yorkshire after that Tetley never tasted right again so we moved to Yorkshire Tea.

Out of date?

sunshineandshowers21 Thu 08-Oct-20 14:38:43

i’ve gone off yorkshire tea too lately. it just doesn’t seem to taste right.

Have you accidentally bought hard water teabags instead of soft water or vice versa?

I find my taste buds get used to tea after a while - a tea that I've really enjoyed for months starts tasting not so great. If I buy another brand then go back to the original after a few months, I find I enjoy it again.

Iodine in the water?
