The Aaah in Tea

When is a cup of tea not a cup of tea?
When your normal brand has an improved flavour sticker on the box and the result is a cup of brown mud with the aftertaste of iron filings.

You may remember this post.
Well, the colour of our brew was good as browns go, but flavour? Good grief, no.
Hubby took one sip, threw it away and has been drinking coffee for the past two days.
I thought it was me, too much sugar in my diet (I don’t take sugar in beverages of any description but have been having a few too many naughties lately), too much garlic in my cooking, a painless bad tooth?

It was none of these things, so we took advantage of the satisfaction guarantee and took the box back for a full refund. This was not a problem.

We have tried a variety of brands over the years, some well known, some shops own, some good, some not so good, some terrible, but whenever we have a cup of tea out, it is nearly always one Particular Brand, one which never fails to please, refresh, and give the ‘aahh’ factor on our taste buds.

They are not cheap, but we can get two cups out of each tea bag, so that’s good economy for us, but more importantly, our guests will enjoy a decent cuppa without us having to worry about personal taste or getting a reputation for dishing up well, nothing better than dishwater.

Are they sure there’s no ‘T’ in Yorkshire?


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I bought this when I was in UK – a very nice satisfying cuppa 🙂

    Nothing quite beats a good cuppa tea. There is a store near me that stocks English goods. I’ll need to look for this tea.
