I never buy tea bags. Once I started drinking loose tea regularly I found I couldn't drink the tea-bag tea. Confining tea in bags is a lot like keeping a bird in a cage. Believe it or not, I even take a tea pot and a jar of loose tea when camping and festivaling. I actually blend my own because I love Darjeeling but it's a little too weak so I mix it with Assam. Since I like smoked food I thought I ought to try blending with a bit of Lapsang Souchong, but Tesco doesn't sell that loose.

I heard something on the radio the other day about China tea and decided I ought to give green tea another try. The only time I tried it it was too bitter for me but there is a much greater variety around now that it is trendy. Of course....no loose green tea in Tesco. Anyone know anything about white tea? They had that in Tesco....in bags.

Love Lynne

Earl Grey is a delight, but I can't drink the stuff too early in the morning. Those dust bags, which we use in the UK, contain the bitter dust, which I would prefer to throw away. It definitely has to be a high quality Ceylon tea for me. Something like Ceylon Nr.4, which has a nice fruity flavour. The bigger the tea leaves the better. You can always brew up with a tea egg. In England you usually have to drink the stuff with milk and sugar, because it is so bitter!

So...it's basically a discussion between the merits of free-range tea or stuff that's been raised in a factory, huh? Well, we members of PETT (People for the Ethical Treatment of Tea) feel that if you MUST consume tea you should at least insure that it is given every opportunity to live its life as Nature intended and humanely CUT ITS THROAT so that it bleeds to death before you use it to satisfy your perverted appetite. Or whack it in the head with shovel. PETT doesn't care as long as you slaughter it humanely. Of course, we advocate and lobby against the cruel treatment of tea, against the unnatural genetic engineering of "blended teas", and we often have PETTing parties involving young Hollywood starlets to raise money for our cause.

FREE THE TEA!!

If you know how to do it, Lobsters can be dispatched quite humanely.

I was taught that cuddly or not - the bergamots would be killed painlessly once boiling water was poured over them.

Bit like lobsters to whom I understand they may be distantly related.

Loose PG. Accept no substitute.

Earl Grey is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. It's cruel to put cuddly little bergamots in your tea.

Tea butties, anyone?

Following on from the bacon butty discussion the subject of cups of tea came up.

I can use tea bags for convenience (Ringtons in my case) but I do like a pot made with loose tea in a morning.

We also offer a pot made with tea bags and a spoonful of Earl Grey with our egg beans and chips on a Friday night.

Camping at a festival - tea bags.

Anywhere outside the UK - coffee.
