Not really fussed about Tea, but if I had a choice between Yorkshire or P.G, then it would be Yorkshire. But only 1 bag, milk, no sugar and no biscuit.

Guess the cake is Yorkshire of the same brand.

Twinings Earl Grey (teabags), with sugar and fresh milk in pint mug: morning, noon, and night.

And when a workman comes to the house and I ask "cuppa tea?" and they reply "yes please" and I ask "is Earl Grey okay?" and they reply "fine, ten sugars" and then they go ahead and drink it, I've never had a single complaint.

(any cake is good with Carnation Milk poured over it and eaten with a spoon)

I have about ten teas in the house. If I had to choose one, it would be Earl Grey, but Lapsang is close behind.

I am also on a one-man mission to rid the world of the term 'herb tea':

It's got to be Yorkshire tea - (Taylors of Harrogate) leave the bag in till it goes a sort of rusty colour, no sugar, but whole milk non of this skimmed stuff. :D

Awe I've done it again, talking about food and I've not had my tea yet :lol:

Tea is the brew of the Devil. I've never met a Satanist that did not drink copious amounts of tea. Resist temptation, it is not worth losing your soul over.

Also too late I am obviously way beyond saving.

also use tea direct fair trade, but prefer English breakfast, occasionally indulge in green tea.
Anyway tea's good for clearing out the free floating radicals... :lol: any excuse.

Tea, of course, is a "Great British Subject" (like the weather, and cycling helmets, and single panniers).
