Far too much Tea Bagging going on

These people who use two because they can't wait for the traditional one to mash properly.

In the final analysis it is they who are responsible for the decline of civilisation as we know it and ultimately the very end of existence.

They should just use Yorkshire Gold with a splash of milk. Really strong brew. I won't drink owt else me. At home or at work. Never heard of the double bag craze. Might be one of those quaint Pennine inbred customs. Anybody else aware of it? Mine is a sheltered existence.

There is a common theme amongst the people i see do it. All up themselves "go getters".... or cunts as i like to call them

This is getting my gander up and has me in a state of distress and discombobulation. Why the feck wouldn't somebody just make the brew and leave the bag in for a while? They could even take it back to their desk with the bag in the cup. Mad! Total waste of teabags if you ask me.................................I know you won't.

Only if you're a moron who can't walk with a cup full of tea without spilling it.

I'm a loose leaf kind of guy anyway.

Teabagging is for gayers.
Plastic Man

Just a thought.

I like a moderately strong cup of tea. In times past, tea bags were filled with sufficient leaves such that one bag in a pot, if left to brew for a modest length of time, was enough to produce two cups of tea.

However, in recent times, presumably in an effort to reduce the headline cost of their product, manufacturers started to market "one cup" tea bags.

The trouble with them is that if you like a strong cup of tea, or use a large mug, one bag doesn't contain enough tea leaves.

I find that I need to let a single "one cup" tea bag stand for quite a long time to barely scrape over the threshold to meet my my modest taste and size of drinking vessel.

I manage to get two mugs of tea out of one tea bag - you have to cheat a bit but it saves a fortune - especially when you have scroungers round to yours wanting a bloody cup of tea!

No it doesn't, though I do respect the intentions

Loose (for me, usually Twinings - either English or Irish breakfast) tea. In a preheated pot. Add boiling water. Put on tea cozy. Wait a couple of minutes. Pour in mug on top of proper full fat milk. Get biscuits.

Simples.

Repeat at least five times a day.

A guy I used to work with used one teabag per day and would hang it up to dry in between brews.

There is an ISO standard for brewing tea (as there was also a British Standard).

In addition, further details can be found in the article (hopefully linked below).

Brill. Love that link D-Man.

Leaves and full fat? How quaint, how decedent, a true connoisseur. Can we see a picture of the cozy? I have an image in mind.

Bags are definitely getting weaker. I can't get two cups out of one now like i used to and that's with Twinings bags. However, one bag is fine providing you are prepared to spend more than a nano second of your oh so precious time waiting or otherwise enticing the brewing process if you must with some applied broddling.

It's either a Union Jack or a Mallard duck cozy, although I've been hitting the Keurig machine up for coffee of late, which makes no financial sense whatsoever.
Grind

I guess it's strictly the Union Flag, but with dodgy tea stains.

A real pedant would need to know the type of tea.

If you can find it, try Nambarrie tea (available in Ireland, parts of Scotland and occasionally seen in Tesco in the West Midlands around Dudley!  For a real treat, buy some Namosa tea - I have only been able to find this in Ireland.  The people who blended the above also told me that Taylor's are excellent tea blenders - they do the Yorkshire Tea.  Both of the aforementioned are in bags.  If you can get hold of them, one bag is definitely ample.  The Namosa brand is an excellent tea for when you need such a brew).

When I go to these parts, I carry as little luggage out as possible in as big a bag as I have to stock up with tea.

I am currently in one of these areas and plan a "tea shop" tomorrow evening to stock up for Christmas and the early part of 2015.

Best and most informative post I have read on here in ages. Job well done Dalek. I'll look out for some of that strong tea.

You have geese?

Lord only knows how incredulous you'd be with your dander getting all uppity.
