  • Sorry to be negative but it took them 8 months to notify me my two packets of tea were ready for collection in Buenos Aires a 6 hour round trip away. As long as I first paid the release fee.


    The system is a joke.

    Still waiting to see if it appears for sale on Mercado Libre...cheaper than having to travel to Buenos Aires and back. ^^


    You are such a sport!!

  • So do you go by period or do you select a different tea blend according to your mood/needs?


    I am not very fond of tea because I do not like the rubber feeling they leave on the mouth, but certainly I do not have the skills to make proper tea and must be doing something wrong to get it.

  • English Breakfast tea is my lifetime favorite. Any blend of Assam and Darjeeling. Irish Breakfast also delicious. Fortnum and Mason’s Royal Blend is, well, fit for royalty, by definition!


    Depending on the brand, Earl Grey can have a refreshing citrusy overtone from actual bergamot, OR an off taste from chemical “bergamot.” Fortnum and Mason use the real thing, and if I’m remembering correctly, Twinings does as well.


    (Reluctantly) Leaving loose teas behind, tea bags are my everyday coin of the realm. Lipton is bitter. Tetley is far better. Typhoo not often found in the US.

  • I like this tea which is perfectly acceptable if you use two tea bags.



    Very expensive though especially with the amount I drink. I now use Taragui loose tea. Three teaspoons to the pot does the trick as long as you give it several minutes to infuse. Have yet to taste anything better...even Liptons tea bags can't beat it.
