Twinings Irish Breakfast is top notch. There is nothing wrong with tea bags. Who hates tea bags? Harrod's FTGFOP - finest tippy golden flowery orange pekoe. Joke is far too good for ordinary people. Picked up a tin on the honeymoon for 30 pounds. Three years later and it still smelled like flower blossoms. I have fondness for orange pekoe - mounted a mountain with the wife, proposed the day previous, tea in a tea house on the side of a mountain overlooking a crater lake, present me with a menu, hippy girl. I say just a pot of orange pekoe, and she says which one. So I peruse the menu and pick fine sounding varietal; excellent choice she says, that is my favorite. I wink at her. Good times had by all.

I generally buy loose-leave at the supermarket. Be it Twinings, Dilma or some of the locally-made offerings. English Breakfast blend usually. Have found many loose Earl Greys that are no different to a boring black tea (Twinings loose has this problem, but not their teabags - which have several times more Bergamot in them).

I did buy a few tins of Twinings Lady Grey; what I liken to Earl Grey on steroids. Now that was very drinkable!

The only Twining's I will still drink are Earl Grey, and Oolong Tea which is very fine. Their English Breakfast tastes like pencil shavings compared to a delicious cup of Yorkshire Tea. My box has been exposed to air for over a year and the tea still tastes superior to a fresh box of Twining's EBT

In fact in honor of the Spiffing Brit. I'm going to watch a vid of his (Maybe the Sid Meirer's Pirates cause that's what convinced me I think) and have a cup of Yorkshire Tea, two sugars and a dash of milk.

Read this thread, bought some Yorkshire Tea (which I'd never heard of before) from Amazon (super cheap! 100 bags for 4 bucks), and am loving it. This is some nice tea -- really nice. Glad y'all brought it up! I got the Yorkshire Red: is it better or worse than the Yorkshire Gold?

I have a wide selection of teas. Our youngest son was a great tea drinker and had a large collection of Chinese and Japanese teas. Then he decided to go caffeine-free, so Dad inherited them. Unfortunately, I have anosmia. IOW, I lack a sense of smell which severely stunts my sense of taste so they all pretty much taste the same to me.

I drink Twinnings and Bigelow.
I have Earl Grey, Lady Grey, White tea, Darjeeling and some medicinal blends such as Yogi for sleep, cammomille for upset stomach and loose hibiscus from teavana, for health.

A cold glass of hibiscus tea in summer is amazing to me.

Necro but whatever.

I'm a fan of Bigalow and Twinnings (earl grey. I've been drinking lady grey too which is nice and fresh)

I've always been a huge tea drinker, ever since I was about twelve. This was long before I even knew caffeine was a thing, never noticed the effects. Then I started drinking coffee and built up a massive caffeine tolerance. I've been cutting way back on the caffeine though and now I find I appreciate tea much more. I drink it "black" no sugar or milk.

As for herbal teas I like a lot of "fruit" teas (cherry and stuff like that) and camomile to relax.

Now I kind of want to try Yorkshire.
