Barrys loose leaf tea, has to be loose leaf. I was told that the stuff in tea bags was the sweepings from the floor! Has to be made in a pot that has been warmed first. Milk in first to gauge the correct amount, then drink out of my favourite Wallice and Grommit mug. To be accompanioed with Scottish shortbread biiscuits................!
May the wind always be at your rear!

further to the above and with profuse appologies to Taylors, I correct myself, it's not a cake, it's a tea loaf. :oops:

And excellent it is too :D

Assam brewed strong in the cup - I cant tell the difference between Tesco's and Sainsbury's :oops: - or Whittard's Russian Caravan for tea without milk.
Best helped on its way with a bacon sandwich :lol:

but I don't like tea unless its herbal. In which case - Lemon and Ginger by a mile...

I also don't like 'ordinary' tea.

And I love lemon and ginger. And peppermint.

I have the occasional cup of Earl Grey tea with no milk or sugar.

And I see that Yorkshire Tea is now making something called Butter Tea Biscuits, or summat like that? My MIL is a Yorkshire Tea fan.

Yorkshire, strong, hardly any milk and no sugar. Looks like gravy browning & you can stand the spoon up in it.
