Whole Lotta Rosie

As I have been having eratic sleep patterns of late I'm trying to find out whats causing it. I thoguht I would cut down on my caffeine a bit and I switched to having herbal teas as opposed to regular tea with milk in. I can't see me going back to regular tea after my latest foray into the herbal ones. Currently on the go: Lemon & Ginger, Redbush, and of an evening a bit of T'Camomile. After a week I'm already sleeping a bit better. Anybody got any other flavours I should check out?

Bentley's make some very good white teas. My favourite is the raspberry one, but make sure you don't overboil the water or steep the tea for too long.

Mrs C drinks Redbush. D1 and Mrs C drink another herbal tea of an evening. Not sure what it is, but they call it Sleep Tea.

i hate that redbush tea, it tastes like it is made from any old shrub in the garden and as if there has been a little earth left on it.

i dont really like any of them, ive tried tons of them.
i pretended i liked a couple of the fruity ones but when i really thought about it, they were actually horrible.

i quite like proper chai tea but that is about it.

I have a steaming pot of English Breakfast in front of me (Twinings leaf) that I'm going to slurp away at with my trusty 42 Oz bag of peanut M&Ms by my side.

LD, I tried a belter yesterday on a visit to T'Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Its called Lapsang Souchong. Quite a smokey texture to it. Nom Nom. Twinings do it, so I'll get you some next time I go shopping. We've got to get your ying and yang back in balance lad.
Carp

That stuff stinks like cat pee.
Late Doors

Lapsang Souchon is what I’d put in the proper tea category. IE I drink it     , especially in the garden in Autumn as everything is dying off and that cold nip gets into the air, it forever reminds me of that. More of an Earl Grey man this time of year dontcha know

I suppose if you  fed your cat smoked trout it’s pee might taste of it

I'm going to have to try this tea before bed time thing, my sleep patterns have been shot to shit recently.

Just done some re-stocking. More of the Lemon & Ginger and Pure Camomile, and a new one: Blackcurrent, Ginseng, and Vanilla. I'm a right connoisseur me.

*uses best china*

Three that I am currently sampling: Camomile Honey and Vanilla, Assam, and nettle tea. The nettle tea is a bit like camomile but, er, without any camomile in. Couple of these on a night and I sleep like a log n' that.

I've been towing with a packet of Darjeeling for two years now in the hope that like Olives and rocket l'll get to love it eventually. Anyway i threw the lot away on Friday, it just aint going to happen, Just tastes like a mixture of sand and Grape seed that rips the mouth skin away from your gums, absolutely horrible stuff, soz, ive tried and it's the only tea i cant enjoy.

When i say tea i mean proper tea not some of the witch piss concoctions that have been mentioned in this thread. Chamomile? chuffing chamomile ? maybe an ingredient for the manure pile along with dock leaves and cabbages but Tea? seriously?

In our house our regular brew has been Yorkshire Tea but I got some of the Yorkshire Gold to try after many recommendations about it. It's fucking lovely. I like a good strong cup of tea (just a teensy weeny splash of milk mind) and this fits the bill and ticks all the proverbial boxes. Haven't drank owt else since I tried it. I really haven't.

Gateway drug.

Recently had a new shower fitted. The lad that did it said we live in a: 'Hard water area'. Which immediately gave me the opportunity to buy some of those hard water Yorkshire tea bags (green label, instead of the traditional red one). Apparently blended to react with the mineral content of hard water. Nowt to write home about and zero improvement on my beloved Yorkshire Gold. I'll be back on the YG when we do our next big-shop at Morribogs. End of dispatch.

That'll be the Chalk then? have to report a decline in Twinnings English Breakfast tea. Just not cutting it anymore and am looking for a change. Will try some YG.

Four Twinning English breakfast tea bags left before i start on the YG. I hold Dock's recommendations in high esteem so if it aint any good he can stuff his book, music, telly, food,drink and any any other recommendations. No pressure
Late Doors

Still on the hunt for the perfect brew I'm afraid. I liked the Yorkshire gold and would drink it anytime but it was a tad "golden", Don't know exactly what that means but certain "Golden" ales have the same quality, King Rat for instance. Anyway finished the 80 pack no problem and tried a supermarket own economy. That was exactly what it said on the tin, reminded me of work tea *shudders*

Finished the pack like but still continued my search for my beloved Twinnings English Breakfast tea which as recently gone down the shitter.

Then there, all of a sudden sitting proudly on the top shelf of Sainsburies was a Twinnings "new" EXTRA STRONG English breakfast Tea. Those conniving despicable corporate shysters have deliberately cheapened their normal Breakfast tea making it blander and duller whilst keeping the same price and also re branded the old brew as "Extra strong" at a twenty percent increase in price. Well they can kiss my acned arse the piss taking pillocks. The search continues...

Currently ordered in an 80 pack of Clippers fair trade from Ocado, we'll see how that goes and report in since you intrested

I never realised just how much strain you were under.
Late Doors

Tell me about it. Yesterday I'd dug sieved and raked over a patch of garden ready for the summer annuals and a light breeze blew thousands of dandelion seeds over. It was like bloody Arnhem out there. I grabbed as many as I could before they landed but couldn't stop them all. I had to pick them out, 223 of the little blighters but I suspect some of them still lay there on my freshly prepared soil. Now I've got to wait till they sprout and pull them out one by one. You can imagine the pressure I'm under but I'm staying strong.

Just realised why i dont fancy Barry's tea. Its the name Barry. Every Barry ive ever met has been a cunt of some description. Started with Barry Q at school who we called tea leaf Q for short. Him and Fingers Fleming used to come into school with their blazers pockets stuffed full of family sized chocolate bars they'd lifted from Woolies and both faintly smelt of sugar Puffs.
