Well I never,pilvikki!! We had a Liptons store in our town many many years ago.... I was a wee lad way back then when this store was around.Our town has changed drastically since then,and I always remembered being with my mum and loved going shopping with her.I was always willing to help her with carrying a basket or pushing the trolley around.Awww,those were the good old days!!! I would love to be that age again.... :sigh:

Anyway,must not change the subject too much.Okay,to answer the threaded question...
I always use teabags,and I pour the milk in first and bung the tea bag in my cup or mug and then pour the hot water from the kettle into it.Give it a good old stir and that's it for me!! I take no sugar,and I like my tea medium to slightly strong.I can drink it without milk,but it has to be Earl Grey for me to drink it without milk.
Sometimes I like to dunk a biccie in my tea,got to watch it doesn't get to soggy otherwise it will plop into your mug or cup.....hee,hee!
:)

If there was a question on 'How do you take your coffee?', well I do the same,but I put the coffee in first and then hot water,milk,and some brown sugar to taste!! I can also drink coffee without milk should the need arise... :cool2:

Okay,what about other types of tea then?? Since some people can't seem to accept Earl grey much....ahem!!

Anyway,how about Oolong tea,Green Tea,Black Tea,English Breakfast,Ceylong Tea,Darjeeling Tea,Chamomile Tea,Ginseng Tea,Cinnamon Tea,Chai Tea,Jasmine Tea,Japanese Tea,Rooibos Tea,Siberian Ginseng Tea.
Pheeww!! I think that's about it...there might be more,I really don't know.
It's amazing really how many teas there are.Is there anyone who likes any of the above teas I wonder??

Hiya imhotep. I'm a "tea belly" these days. Oolong's OK, green I have fairly often, black less often but OK, the herbal/fruity ones can be nice. I like rosehip and lemon ones.
Actually, there are hundreds of different teas though hun.
I bought some Morrison's organic teabags not so long ago. You need to leave them to brew a bit to get a decent cuppa, but they taste alright, whiuch somehow surprised me.

Oooh I do like a cup of Char I do...oh yes!!
Green Tea I do approve of...mmmmm!!

Hmm,that's a thought, I wonder if someone will make Orgasmic tea.....hee,hee!!

Anyway,I like tea and coffee,but I do prefer a nice cup of tea!!
I feel like a song coming on....about tea!! Yes tea!!

I drink green and black tea because they're supposed to help clear any free radicals from the body, but i can't honestly say as they taste brilliant. Green tea reminds me of the raspberry leaf tea I drank when I was pregnant. It was yucky at first, but then I got used to it. The advantage is - that it worked! :P
