I had to go into lab early this morning. So I just grabbed one of these teabags from my roommates’s stash and put it in my thermos to go. Unfortunately I just took naps during the downtime instead of drinking my tea and being productive. When I got home, the tea was super strongly brewed — so I had to water it down a lot. Still good and at least I’m awake now.

Over brewed tea that says it’s “extra strong” already and still gets a 70 is amazing though:)

I watered it out to make two small teapotfulls.

Cofftea

Yeah, but the bitterness can still be there and you’d just end up w/ watered down bitter tea. Glad that didn’t happen!

Several months ago I bought a 240-bag pack of this one and finished it within 5 or 6 months.That’s quite an experience for someone like me who always search stores for some new tea. The tea is truly extra stong and flavorful——so everytime I use more water,the taste gets even brighter and better.

There were times when I didn’t want my tea to be feminine (with pink or any lovely colors?) or childish (/sweet-teeth)——meaning I was not in the mood for gourmet/flowery/fruity flavored thing, when I just wanted to have the traditional kinds ,this one comforted me with its plain yet rich flavor,which reminds me of some nature of our family members,not so attractive at first glance ,then you just keep going back to them,eager for their embraces .(Forgive my strange expressions please :3

Well,go back to the tea,I think it’s nice to keep it in your cupboard all the time,your can use it as the perfect tea base for any beverage——the combination of 3 kinds of black tea is brilliant ,giving the tea malty ,smooth&clear ,raw yet bright and rounded characteristics

it’s been ages M&S have left France but they came back 2 years ago with 1 and now 2 shops but I didn’t have took some time to visit their shops…when I will I’ll have a look at their teas. Am I right by guessing you’re living in the UK ?

Actually I live in China now.Thanks to the convenience and popularity of online shopping ,I bought this one online at a discount, while there are a few M&S shops in China too including my city……

Was brought up on this tea. The cornerstone of my understanding of a good British cuppa.

My husband loves this tea. It’s an eye opener for him and he stopped drinking coffee and replaced it with this tea. He love to make ice tea with it!

This is my favourite tea which I drink sparingly as I don’t have easy access to it. Exactly as it is advertised: rich, bright and malty. I also purchase the loose leaf version. For someone who likes their tea with milk, I find this tea to really satisfy.

I’m not sure what it is about this tea, but I can see why they sell so much of it in a single box. It has become a part of my morning ritual, and I have a cup the minute I wake up.

My wife and I were introduced to this tea in the UK in the 1990s and have purchased thousands of bags each time we go over. With the UK relatives visiting the USA we have not been able to find a reasonably priced source here. This is a smooth full body tea that goes well by itself or with milk. We highly recommend it and would appreciate finding a USA source.

This is a grower .. at first wasn’t blown away but after drinking it for a week or so I’ve found it to be a right satisfying cuppa.
