It's teatime! What's your poison?

Post  Captain McCannon on Thu Oct 09, 2008 9:06 am

I prefer a strong cup of English Breakfast myself - two sugars, or honey, if there's no sugar available - oh, and don't forget the lemon! What's your favorite type of tea, how d'you like it, and what do you have with it? (:

Strong, black. To my dentist's ongoing angst and my six monthly teeth cleaning bill! Very Happy

(Though since that's all I've ever needed from my dentist apart from a minor chip ground down after a cycling prang, she's got no cause to complain!)

No milk, no sugar. I drink just about any real tea (black, oolong, green, white) and have about 24 sorts at home at the moment. Since I'm at work right now I can say that I have a Ceylon Meddicombra estate and a Nilgiri estate orange pekoe.

Post  Zwack on Thu Oct 09, 2008 4:34 pm

My Poison? Potassium Cyanide. Very Happy

Tea? I currently have three loose leaf teas at home...

English Breakfast (with milk, no sugar)
Earl Grey (no milk, no sugar)
Lapsang Souchong (no milk, no sugar)

It's coming up for time for me to visit the Stash Tea outlet store (about a mile from where I work) again. They have an excellent selection available and usually have three sample teas.

Post  Mr Clockwork on Thu Oct 09, 2008 5:21 pm

So far as general tea goes, I love to have a particularly milky tea with a couple of teaspoons of sugar.

One of my favourite teas is blackcurrant tea, again with sugar (I love sweet things), but no milk.

And another tea that I like is loose leaf lavender tea, again no milk.

Jasmin tea is another love of mine.

Post  Jemima Annabelle Clough on Thu Oct 09, 2008 7:12 pm

For preference a loose large leaf assam - I rather like Whittards ones from Harmutty or Orangajuli estates.

But more often than not a decent blend-in-a-bag - rather partial to Twinings 1706 and Everyday, and quite like Yorkshire Gold too

And I drink them with skimmed milk and no sugar

Re: It's teatime! What's your poison?

Post  Mrs. Sullivan on Fri Oct 10, 2008 5:01 am

At this moment I am drinking a blend called "Fairy Maiden", which is loose black tea with flowers and fruit in it. A while ago I sent a friend a lovely Jessica McClintock gown that I found at the bins (size 3), and she sent me an assortment of specially blended teas (she has a small business selling tea).

I generally prefer black teas, no sugar, no cream, nice and strong. I am fond of Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchong.

An ideal bite would be half an English muffin spread with whipped cream cheese and topped with a tomato slice, whisked under the broiler, sprinkled with Spike and black pepper and accompanied by a cup of smoky Lapsang Souchong. I'm getting kind of hungry now... Wink

Or freshly made scones, crumpets or (for the Scots amongst us) Drop Scones (Dollar Pancakes to Americans, Scotch Pancakes to the English) or even Tatty Scones.

I have to say that I have introduced the concept of Tea as a light meal to my wife and she likes it. Smile

Post  B. R. Wilson on Fri Oct 10, 2008 7:15 am

I'm partial to Republic Of Tea's Ginger Peach, but it has to be loose leaf. The bags don't brew up nearly strong enough. Other than that, I'm also quite fond of Constant Comment from Bigelow, which is a black tea with bits of orange rind as well as spices in it. It's my go-to tea if I've got nothing else. I like all my tea brewed extra-strong with maybe two teaspoons of sugar (not sweetener) per cup.

Post  The Kernel on Fri Oct 10, 2008 7:34 am

I was experimenting with a new "expresso coffee" maker last night (a machine, not a barista who makes expresso coffee - he adds quickly)

Wonderful lattes

Now I'm still twitching and I've had about 1 hour's sleep!

I think that should have been a morning exersize rather than evening.

(seems to have helped my spelling though)

My most sincere apologies. Unfortunately I know nothing of Welsh Cuisine beyond the odd joke...

Post  Elisha Rush on Sat Oct 11, 2008 3:45 am

since i live in the hinterlands, good tea is hard to come by. the best strategey was handed to me by an Englishman who suggested going to the largest store possible and buying the smallest box of Lipton's (since small boxes sell faster) in order to get a fairly fresh box of tea. it works.

for along-withs: apricot balish. a delightful Hungarian cookie/pastry sort of nibbly thingy.

Post  Captain Lyerly on Sat Oct 11, 2008 5:22 pm

I find that any standard commercial tea is good, the brewing is the most critical. Do that right, don't keep tea around long enough to let it get stale, you will do fine.

I take mine with milk, a little Splenda.

And scones, when I can.

Ooooh... wouldn't fourteen pounds of Scottish baked goods be...



Wait for it....





A stone of scones?


heh.

Post  Captain Arabella Cox, Ret on Sat Oct 11, 2008 6:22 pm

Since I cater English Afternoon teas (county of San Diego, CA, only) I have a pretty large selection of tea to choose from. I try something different in the afternoon when I have time to sit and enjoy a pot. That is if I'm not sewing an 1840s or 1860s costume.
My favorite is a plain Assam, but love a vanilla flavored Earl Grey quite a bit. PG Tips keeps pulling me in too. And loose leaves all the way, no bags.
