How has my life come to this, that I am posting a thread about a teabag?

But would love to know what's a good, strong tasty everyday teabag. I like Twinings Assam or Everyday, but it's pricey. PG Tips and Tetley ok, but DH didn't like them. Currently on Tesco red label and it's tasteless. Didn't like Yorkshire.

What shall I try next? brew

Clipper Organic or Sainsburys Taste the Difference Assam for me.

I find PG Tips, Tetley and Twinings Assam all tasteless

Lidl red label teabags for everyday use.

Loose leaf tea, Fortnum and Mason Royal Blend, M&S Rwandan, specialist Russian Caravan, Keenum, Kenyan, Potting Shed for indulgent afternoons.

I'm a Lidl tea drinker too.

Lovely thank you, a few to try smile

"Yorkshire tea for hard water". Fab: everything else tastes insipid....and we don't even have hard water.

I like Yorkshire Gold

You haven't mentioned Typhoo, which is my tea of choice out of the normal brands. Much nicer than the others. My local Sainsbury's don't sell it so I make a special trip to Asda!

I second Yorkshire Gold. Not the ordinary Yorks. They're nasty.

GnarlyOldGoatDude Wed 10-May-17 19:30:24

Tried the Yorkshire for hard water, and didn't like it I'm afraid, or the normal Yorkshire.

Haven't tried Typhoo for a while, might try that.

Will definitely try Lidl red label and Sainsbury's Assam. Thank you!

Marks and Spencer Extra Strong - most others tasteless in comparison; suffices for my 1 pint mug! Also pretty cheap.

Clipper tea is lovely!!

GnarlyOldGoatDude Wed 10-May-17 23:00:33

Wow a pint of tea shock that sounds heavenly

Thompsons Punjana tea, in red packet. You have to let it brew a bit longer but it's really refreshing and not bitter. Morrisons.

I second clipper organic. Do have to put 2 in my pint mug though, but I do like it strong.

Pint mugs are totally fabby! Mine are from highland stoneware and are gorgeous, had them years, 1 at work and 1 at home. I looooovvveee my tea.

Aldi English Breakfast, not quite as nice as Twinings, but a lot cheaper.

Daffydil Thu 11-May-17 19:39:09

Sainsbury's TtD Ceylon or English breakfast in our house.

Waitrose Ceylon at my mums.

I only have tetley, so can't help. But I hope you find a nice one

quince2figs Thu 11-May-17 22:12:17

My pint mug is from Emma Bridgewater. Very much recommended!

ephemeralfairy Thu 11-May-17 22:24:58

DP loves Punjana tea. If I buy anything else he point blank refuses to drink it. The cupboard is full of rejected teas.
It is very nice. I also like Clipper and TeaDirect, although not seen the latter for ages.
Agree that most supermarket own brands are usually very good.

This is an interesting thread, almost walked on by thinking it would be a herbal discussion. We are Yorkshire tea through and through here, and thought we had reached the ultimate. But my eyes have been opened to try others, clipper is getting a fair few mentions...,

GnarlyOldGoatDude Thu 11-May-17 22:38:48

Thanks everyone, my taste tests are going to take months at this rate!! Wish they did really small packets smile

GnarlyOldGoatDude Thu 11-May-17 22:39:58

I'm not a herbal tea fan, complete Phillistjne here.

Builder tea all the way grin

Pg tips gold. Hate the standard ones. Gold are great.
