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.
