Decent tasting teabags

(49 Posts)

I'm looking for a teabag that makes a nice cup of tea, strong enough so there is actually some taste to it.
I've just bought a box of PG tips called 'The strong one' and they are making me feel nauseous! It's not that they're too strong they just taste foul.

Any recommendations for decent teabags please?

Yorkshire Tea.

Twinings Everyday, or English Breakfast.

I asked a similar question a few years ago. Yorkshire tea got the most votes so we tried that first... And have stuck with it. But guess it's personal taste so you might have to try a few

Either Yorkshire or Twinnings or M & S strong tea bags. I hate crap teabags.

Clipper tea bags.
The absolute best.

M and s gets my vote. And they are fairtrade! In the interests of fill disclosure I drink the breakfast ones not the strong ones but they are lovely.

The other ones I like are Thompsons Family Tea(?) but I'm not sure if they are only in Scotland. I think they say something about Scotland on the packet. It's blue anyway.

Assam for me. Or Twinings Breakfast.

Yorkshire tea for hard water. Lovely. Flavoursome with just a touch of builder.

Another one for Yorkshire tea here

Definitely Yorkshire tea. Won't drink anything else.

Twinings everyday, changed from PG Tips several years ago.

Yorkshire Gold.

The best tea ever. I don't have tea in other people's houses because most use PG Tips/Tetley/Typhoo and they're all bloody disgusting.

Yorkshire Tea, brewed for about a minute. Yorkshire Gold you brew for about 20 seconds otherwise it's almost undrinkable, and I like quite a strong cup of tea. PG you have to brew for at least 3 minutes to get any flavour at all.

We usually get Yorkshire (did a blind tasting v Yorkshire Gold and preferred the former) - but recently DH got some Lancashire tea and we think we prefer that. Not sure that you can get it outside of Lancashire yet though!

(note - I'm a Yorkshire/Lancashire mongrel so no bias!grin)

Yorkshire tea is by far the best taste wise.

Yorkshire tea, the only thing that compares is Betty's Tea from the Betty's tea rooms but I think it's made by the same people.

Lagoonablue Tue 18-Nov-14 20:54:47

Yorkshire here too

NakedFamilyFightClub Tue 18-Nov-14 20:58:40

Punjana, thought I think be it might be called Thompson's tea in England. They've won a lot of good taste awards recently.

Jemster Tue 18-Nov-14 21:05:20

Great thanks everyone, seems like Yorkshire is a winner. I'll get some tomorrow, really can't stand bad tea!

Deedeecupcake Tue 18-Nov-14 21:07:24

I don't know if you can get it over in England, but Lyons tea is the bomb.

Back2Two Tue 18-Nov-14 21:19:46

I know I'm a voice in a crowd....but, I think Clipper tea is better than Yorkshire tea (and I'm a yorkshire girl and I used to always drink it. After clipper I'm never going back!)
Some reviews on here!

Taffeta Tue 18-Nov-14 21:21:38

Sainsburys TTD Assam. Way nicer than Yorkshire. grin

I vote clipper tea, but if your willing to jump ship to loose tea, Miles red tea is the best I've tasted but their blue tea bags are rubbish confused
