Tea Drinking American looking for suggestions

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Might be hard to find some of the things you may suggest but I couldn't think of a better place to ask for tea suggestions.

    So far I have my favorites; Earl Grey from Bigelow, Oolong, Twinings Prince of Wales tea (which I'm drinking this moment, and I just tried some Lapsang Souchong, which is not for me.

    Anyone have suggestions?
  2. Bostoian ??

  3. twinnings do a good range of teas. try their breakfast tea pretty good although earl grey is my particular favourite.
  4. Nowt wrong with a good cup of PG Tips :)
  5. Put the milk in before the hot water.

    Stir 5 times, clockwise.

    don'tuse tea bags, turn the pot before pouring.
  6. PG Tips Pyramids I presume? :D
  7. As long as you add either baileys or Brandy to it who cares.

    Yorkshire teas and Rintens tea are a good brew though but not that exotic.

    ps with the recent floods dont try the Yorkshire water especially if you see a chocolate log in your cup.
  8. Earl grey, without milk obviously.
    PG tips, milk no sugar. hmm - I have just developed a strong need for a nice cuppa.

  9. Lower Merion, Pa Welshman I'm afraid.
  10. The better quality tea is generally sold loose, rather than in a bag.

    Personally I prefer African (Kenyan) to Asian teas.

    But whatever you do, don't add lemon.

  11. Barry's Irish Breakfast tea
  12. Indeed they do. However I tend to prefer the Bigalow over the Twinings, I think the sealed foil makes for a stronger flavored tea. I think I've tried just about every kind they make; Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, Darjeeling, Constant comment (Kind of orange spice w/ Pekoe, and Chai.
  13. What about Tesco's economy tea ?

    Look, no good asking for help here! Last time we gave you a decent tea, you slung it into Boston Harbour.

    Try Chinese Pale Yellow, only available from specialist shops. Delicate and soft, with a citrus hint and a smoky texture.

    Not that I drink owt but guardroom tea, obviously!
  15. Marks and Spencer 'Pure Assam'. Perfect, even in infra dig tea-bag form. Brew for 3 to 4 minutes, splash of milk - the tea on which to run an Empire!
