    What is your opinion on the optimum bpm to brew tea to?

    So spam, or not I’m going to continue the topic. I like English Breakfast but prefer it in loose tea form. Earl Grey without milk, thanks and that includes OOLONG TOO.

    If I’m just after a builder’s brew you can’t really beat Yorkshire Tea (and I’ve tried them all).

    For green, Sencha or Matcha.

    But generally, I prefer COFFEE.

    Currently on rotation jasmine white tea, peach white tea, cream of earl grey, rose black tea and chamomile.

    I need to buy those teabags you fill because I hate using loose leaf tea and then having to clean to strainer.

    Also I’m not British so the idea of adding milk to my tea is just wrong.

    Yogi Tea is good @Lucille .

    I love the inspiring messages you get on the teabag and the absurd fact each box contains 17 tea bags.

    I was going to answer but struggled to read the thread title as it's not in caps. :(

    Anyway. English Breakfast (especially Yorkshire) throughout the day (too many), peppermint of a night, camomile when I have a poorly tum tum. I'm not a big fan of green or anything too sweet, but I have been having a sifter of this every now then:

    Strong AND MILKY (why do some people find this concept so difficult). One STEVIA.

    Yorkshire Gold tea, 2.5 sugars, stewed for a minimum of ten minutes with the tiniest dash of milk to colour it.

    Theee is NOTHING more replulsuve than a MILKY TEA.

    However I felt completely the opposite when I was younger.

    I prefer it to look TARRY now.

    A Yorkshire Gold brewed for 10 minutes would result in the blackness of death!

    I do 5 minutes tops! The tea also gets too cold if left any longer.

    And sickeningly sweet.

    To be fair it is a very different sort of drink. I would only drink chai with a spicy snack or a paratha.

    I don't understand people who call it CHAI TEA. You are literally saying TEA TEA (chai is Hindi for tea).

    And though a lot of tea originates from India they rarely (at least I don't think they do) have it plain without any spices. They will add ginger at the very least.

    I like a pot of tea with two English Breakfast Teabags and one Earl Grey. Just a hint of Earl. Lovely.

    Like Kate, I also prefer strong and milky, which often gets confused with weak and watery. Not the same thing. I don’t want dark brown tea staining my teeth thanks.

    Before bed I like Waitrose camomile, lavender and limeflower tea. Much nicer than that Pukka stuff - and cheaper.

    I've been known to let it stew for an hour then microwave it to reheat it. Also happy to drink it when it's stone cold.

    So I'm guessing most of Moopy are teabag snobs? (this is absolutely an invitation to start making cringey and immature teabagging jokes)

    I'm not really. TBH it's the most convenient way to consume it.

    It DOES taste better loose though.

    I have nothing against tea bags although I am not fond when RESTAURANTS use them.

    I buy supermarket own brand tea. Never had any complaints. It’s so expensive now in Tesco. B&M do Tetley Earl Grey for 1.99 a box.

    When I was very young, my uncles in Pakistan would take me to the local bakery to eat the film off huge vats of hot tea and milk (the 'malai'). I was obsessed!

    Also, in my other cuntry, we have masala chai, but we also drink plenty of tea without spices. In the Punjab, the favoured way of drinking tea is actually by steeping it in boiling milk.

    Yea. Chai or Cha in Punjabi is generally made in milk rather than water.
