    Is there a coffee group? I bought Mum 300g of Vanilla French coffee for Mother's Day and it's highly addictive.
    It's a bit like drinking hot Baileys mmmmm... ^_^

    Oh hello, I didn't see you there, Mr. Tea Society! :hat2:

    Joining might make up for the imminent death of my of lemon & ginger, lemon green, orange & mango & cinnamon, cranberry & cinnamon supplies.

    Luckily, I still have Caribbean, green, blackcurrant & apple, cherry and ginger & orange chai left

    How do you take your vanilla chai?
    I'm finding it quite hard to get used to?

    Well, I keep it fairly well brewed, no milk, no sugar.
    Are you finidng it quite strong? Because you try brewing it for less long and then once you get used to it you could keep it in for longer

    I'm not sure...I think its because there are a lot of different tastes in it! Nice though

    :w00t::woo: Tea society!!!!!!
    omg i couldnt live without tea. strong, milk, 1 sugar.
    not a massive fan of other sorts of tea....i have earl grey (well....ive had the same packet for about a year and im half way through lol), earl grey with peach, cherry and jasmin, varying sorts of green tea - actually the most vile tasting thing in the world, which is why i have so many different sorts, to see if adding another flavour makes it drinkable....it doesnt, well unless you like green tea in the first place anyway lol! give me a cup of yorkshire anyday! im not a fan of pg tips or typhoo though, they are my emergency backup supplies now lol!
    i really want to like fruit and herbal teas but i just dont they always smell absolutely amazing but then i find they taste either really weak/watery or they are bitter. im probably just really terrible at brewing them or something lol!

    but yeah....go tea!!

    I used to think this!
    That was when I was 'starting out' and only steeped things for a minute or two.
    Now, I just don't take the tea bags/strainer out of the water until the very last drop -- and it's bliss!

    I think this too. They always smell divine but the taste is far from it. Makes me terrible sad :puppyeyes:
    I think we're just destined to like proper tea :moon:
