my husband and i were having a discussion on tea bags believe it or not and i said the square tea bags make the best cup of tea as it has been proved they are better than the round ones. he said it was a load of nonsense and they all taste the same would like to know what anybody else thinks lol

pour hot water on the tea bag, round or square, and the tea will infuse.end of story.square round oblong whatever, the tea just brews.pour me a cup, i"l call in when i"m passing.(got some nice jam scones)

took me ages to use t bags,used to like a proper cup of tea.still keep some loose tea and every now and then make a proper cup with home made cake or scones.i can't tell the difference with square or round or triangles for that matter.it's just easy when your brewing f
or 1 to use a t bag.
p.s does anyone know how long tea keeps?never used to worry till all the" best by" dates came in.

You better off using 2 tea bags for a proper cuppa, I like mine strong wi not much milk and no sugar, any offers ?
Replied: 8th Nov 2006 at 21:02

Been reading all these reports and to me no one has hit on the main aspect of a good cuppa. Do you put the milk in first or the tea bag, personally I put the bag in first, stir it till I get the colour I want, then I put in my milk and then, 1 level spoonful of sugar, then a couple of digestives and unless a genuine second hand virgin is going to come knocking at my door Ilie back on my couch watch telly and enjoy life.

tea is good for you but also bad if you drink too much. A fella I work with was told his kidney stones was caused wi drinkin too much tea. Theres lots of caffiene in tea as well as tannin too. He was advised to drink less tea, decaff tea if poss and also weaker.
