its just wrong to use milk or sugar ...and a tea bag..kernhell whats it coming too
Very nice loose tea's from this company , I'm currently enjoying their English Breakfast , Chai tea, lemon and Ginger and their Decaffeinated tea. Quality tea's at a fair price .
Clipper fairtrade everyday tea. Brewed in a mug for 3 minutes, this is the most refreshing tea I've ever tried. Fantastic !
Hi! Thanks for you opinion! So, do you think that Twinings black tea is better than other "common" brands like Typhoo, Tetley, PG tips, etc.? Because I found at first Twinings teabags too small for using with my mug (a big mug in fact) but if taste deserves I always can add two, hehe.
A little after the fact but I believe Redbush tea is naturally free of caffeine, rather than 'synthetically' decaffeinated. It also tastes pretty darned good.
Great tea! Clipper also don't bleach their teabags which is quite reassuring!
For me, today, I'm trying out 3 new teas. Currently have some 'Twinings Lemon Drizzle' which I don't care for.
I've some Pukka Three Ginger and Pukka Three Cinnamon waiting in the wings! Being au fait with Pukka Vanilla Chai and Pukka Three Mint I'm looking forward to these two!
I can recommend Red bush, a herb and not a tea but as you say free of caffeine, a wonderful clolour and best to drink without milk imo and apart from tasting great it is reputed to have many health benifits. P.
If it’s good enough for Blademonkey is good enough for the rest of us!
Thanks - he's a traditionalist, but it might be an option if he likes the flavour.
I have recently found a shop here in Madrid which stocks Clipper tea for a reasonably price (more expensive than other regular brands like Twinings thought but almost the same price that Yorkshire Gold...). So do you think that it will worth the extra cost? If so, which one will be better as strong tea for breakfast, Everyday or Breakfast blend? Anyone else?
Thanks and regards
I'd say there's no harm trying them. They're all good teas so you might find one has a nuance you take more to. I could personally interchange between Twinings' Everyday, Twinings Breakfast and Clipper Everyday tea without issue. They're all very nice in their own right and not very dissimilar. I don't think you'd be disgusted by them and hence waste money on trying them.
It must have been a good few months since I last drank a Lui Bao. I'd forgotten about the psychoactive effects of this tea ... Wow! Slept sound and straight through, but what weird dreams!
Psychoactive tea, I like the sound of that! Where do you recommend buying this tea and does it cost the earth?
Just love this stuff...
This is the one I've been drinking:
Careful with Liu Bao - some can indeed cost the earth!
I know some folks talk about how Puerh tea makes them feel high. Liu Bao is a similar process. I wouldn't say high, certainly not as in "tea drunk", more just really relaxed, then dropped into a deep, deep sleep. Weird, wacky dreams!
Any help with my sleep would be a great help, thank you for the link. P.
Oh, I see ... lavender drops under pillow. Take a break from alcohol.
If this tea affects you as it does me, you might feel a little drugged in the morning, but sleep is deep!
I use lavender oil on my pillow and I drink alcohol rarely so that's not the problem, it's pain in my shoulders that wakes me several times a night and I'm on one of the most effective pain killers known to man but still get woken by pain so I feel a little drugged up in the morning anyway, partly through the meds and party through lack of proper sleep, I will try the tea and see if it helps, vivid dreams will be a bounus Thank you.
