    More to this tea malarky than meets the eye. I normally just thow a bag in then beat the shit out of it with a teaspoon.
    :D

    I remember someone at work telling me off for that: 'it's just warm, coloured water that way, not tea!'

    Yorkshire tea is what I drink as well, used to quite like tetley but I've gone right off it now.

    Yorkshire is by far my favourite brand. Leave it in for a few minutes for maximum flavour, maybe a splash of the white stuff but I'm happy having black.

    A mate who lives in Africa gets Yorkshire Tea shipped in - can't blame him, every other 'standard' tea I've tasted is pretty poor in comparison.

    WHY DOESN'T HE GET IT DIRECTLY FROM THE FARMERS?!

    Twinings gold breakfast tea is good. Pricey, but I'm worth it.

    Imagine the carbon footprint per cup of tea. Shipped all the way from Africa to be mixed together in Harrogate, then shipped back to Africa again.

    Bit of both really. Duration is important, but in places where they just dispense water into a cup for you and stick a teabag in, you'll generally find it won't be hot enough even if you leave it for ages. Also, it really depends on the tea. Some teas need the water as hot as you can manage, others need it quite hot but not boiling.
    Yup, Yorkshire insist it needs to be boiling. Not just boiled. Boiling.

    That has to be fake, it's far too on the nose.

    Not only the Pub Landlord, Brexit people have managed to kill the whole parody genre with their relentless stupidity

    For me the Yorkshire Tea bloke must be a parody but there are real people just as thick

    Haha amazing. I kinda hope it's fake but I imagine it is legit.

    Time brew me a fresh Yorkshire in my plumbus mug.


    Separate subject, I wish my petrol stations would stop bloody offering me a complimentary copy of the sun! Why the hell would I want that? They often seem genuinely surprised when I say I don't want it. "But it's a free read" :/.

    Sometimes I read The Sun so I can make conversation with the lower orders, perhaps in a Danny Dyer voice.


    Perhaps.

    Thames water fitting a meter outside the house. No warning like, just a card through the door telling me to be aware of lead in the water after some essential works being carried out to the supply

    Yeah it's good to read a copy once in a while to see what the bad people are up to, keep your enemies closer and all that

    I would not buy a copy but it's useful to get a balanced view. I follow a complete helmet from my home town on Twitter that is always retweeting ridiculous right wing trash just so I can see the other side of the debate

    I'm a tea ponce, it used to be Twinings English Breakfast or Assam but Twinings fucked it up a few years ago so now it's Sainsburys English Breakfast, nothing else will do. Weirdly though it's a 'taste the difference' one and it's actually cheaper than most. I'm the only one who can make it right, even my wife doesn't get it right, my mum could but she's not around now. Given a choice if someone's making me a drink I'll ask for coffee, I can cope with a shit coffee but not a shit tea.

    Iím an Azera guy if itís out the can.

    I work in a pretty big building and we have an illey, a benugos and a Costa.

    I actually really like the illey but if you donít like costa because they burn the shit out of the beans, benugos coffee tastes like itís been roasted in mount doom. Itís absolutely fucking disgusting.

    Yorkshire Tea for me, and quite like the Nescafe Azera Decaf Americano, which isn't too bad.

    Daren't drink too much caffeine as someone once told me it can set off labyrinthitis, and I've had 2 nasty spells of that so I'll do anything not to trigger a third.

    No class on here. Earl grey for me.

    I do have a pack of yorkshire tea for vistors normally, although I replaced that with PG last time because they were on offer.

    Alta Rica is my instant coffee. Although I have some sympathy with the view that buying expensive instant coffee is like putting a cherry on a shit pie.
