    Oh ho, let me know what that "Rose Garden" tastes like. I'm tempted to buy :teeth:
    Like summery heaven in a cup. It's my favourite tea without milk.

    Completely agree. Just had a nice cup of Assam tea. More people should drink tea out of pint-sized mugs, it lasts so much longer. :tea:
    All my 'favourite mugs' have one thing in common: they are the largest!

    My parents own this ridiculously oversized 'soup mug' which is almost a 2-hander and whenever I visit, it's the first mug I reach for!

    I drink rose tea black with 1 sugar
    really overpriced in supermarkets.
    cheaper to buy from tea shops or gift shops with a home or drinks section

    The smell is amazing sadly its a weak tea so you must use lots.

    Can't you just steep it for a longer time? That's what I do with Darjeeling :yep:

      I've done it before. It actually tastes really good, but it does terrible things to your stomach :afraid:

      O.o I can imagine. I guess it'd be a heck of a lot worse given that I only drink soya milk

      It's always got to be Earl Grey for me, with a splash of milk.

      I'll occasionally have peppermint - although I've gone off it a bit - or be more experimental in cafes.

        I must invest in a thermos flask.

          A man after my own heart. I know you're supposed to have Earl Grey with lemon and no milk but I need it!
          Hats off to you, sir!

          I've been a bit of traitor and gone for coffee this morning

          I always used to have soya milk in my Earl Grey, but I tend to make it fairly weak so it just ended up being hot milk. Lemon and sugar is the way forward

          I moved the rest of my tea out of my kitchen cupboard and into my room. Not only do I now have loads of room for food in the kitchen, it also forced me to address the fact that I don't have enough tea. :teehee: Actually, I have 33 boxes of the stuff, but I'm missing some that I'd like to have. :teehee: Yes, yes, I have a problem.

          Just ordered this from Dilmah. It's a little expensive once you include shipping, but their Earl Grey bags are the best I've ever tasted (including loose leaf), which is saying something. I don't doubt the rest will be as delicious.
