Some of the brands you have all graciously recommended are not so readily available in the US, so I am curious of your thoughts on some I have seen here available locally and/or online. Any thoughts on the brands listed below (good/bad)? I do prefer a robust cup of tea.

Lyons
Ty-Phoo
Lifeboat
Tetley British Blend
Welsh Brew
Glengettie
Barry's Tea
Nambarrie
Clipper

I like Clipper Organic, they come in a two-tone green box and are available from most supermarkets. I buy them for the taste, not the fact that they're organic.

I'm a recent convert to Barry's Tea (it's an irish breakfast blend rather than English) and more potent and refreshing imo. I do prefer the original blend (green box) rather than gold blend (red box) though, and stay away from Lyons, Typhoo, Tetley they are English stalwarts for a reason.

Jing do a good range and the English Breakfast is a good blend. To be honest it is way better than any of the supermarket stocked brands. Off the shelf, I quite liked the Waitrose gold bags, cheap too. You could also try the Algerian Coffee shop in London, their English breakfast is also nice and they will probably ship to you.

Forgot about the algerian coffee shop! You should try the tea house at Covent Garden too!
There's the Drury's too (I don't know about the tea but the coffee's rubbish!)

What a coincidence! Recently I received the full range of Barrys tea!

I needed to refill my teabags stock and was a bit tired of typical Twinings ones, so this time I decided too try something different... I found some good reviews about Barrys teas, so when I discovered a spanish online shop with decent shipping rates I simply grabbed them... I'll taste this week and later will tell...

Regards
