    so after getting involved in the thread about the quality and taste of indian food available in adelaide i want to know about tea bags. i must wake up with a good cup of tea. we have relatives in perth and our family recently went out there and said they could not get a decent cup of tea - the relatives have been there over 30 yrs so you think they would have the t bags sorted.

     

    so advice please - i have the name of the street for the indian and now i want the name of the best t bags please

     

    thanks in advance

    well, apparently you can find pg tips in the exotic food aisle of foodland!! Dilmah is really nice and you can get twinning here... plus there are chinese shops which sell all manner of loose teas... so there you go!

     

    and further to your last post... Aroma on Hutt Street does amazing indian food - it's not like traditional british indian food... but different and gorgeous, try their special dishes they're divine mmmm

    If it is anything like tea in the States then there is no hope. Lipton I think they call it!

    Surely a good brew depends on decent water.

    Can't beat good old yorkshire tea with yorkshire water.

    I will probably convert to coffee!!

    Hi,

     

    I drank Tetley's T-bags in the uk and they sell them in all the supermarkets here.

    I suppose it depends on the type you are used to, my friend liked Yorkshire Tea in the uk and she says she can not find a decent Tea here, for me Yorkshire Tea is too strong.

     

    Im not a coffee drinker so I did wonder if I would get a decent cuppa in Oz but its just the same taste.

    he he as a yorkshire person i love yorkshire tea with yorkshire water.... the water here is not very nice... we're started using boxed water for drinking, then filtered water for making a cup of tea.... that makes a massive difference.... not seen yorkshire tea out here yet!!!

    i have been looking on the woolworths website to see what items they sell that we have here in the uk and i was glad to see tetley tea bags and they seemed a good price aswell so i will be giving them a try first. i would like to bring a 160 pack with me but with AQUIS and customs in the airport i saw on SKY T.V they jump on you for bringing in such things, so i will just buy T bags from woolys when i arrive.

    cheers

    We find the tea bags quite weak over here, as we like a good strong cuppa.

     

    We use Liptons Intense, make sure you look for the 'intense' on the box and not just the normal Liptons.

    I got some black and gold - cheapy - tea bags in as our kids went through 300 pgtips in a week, and was really pleasantly surprised as to how ok they were.

     

    i left it 'stewing' a little longer than normal before removing the bag...and seriously it really is not a bad cuppa char....

     

     

    but if your talking coffee - give up...none of it is any good unless you use 2 teaspoons....we now make filter or 'special' coffees on our shiny new expresso/coffee machine.

    I'm almost positive you can buy Yorkshire Tea from the little shop in Colonnades, I think it's called Rito's or Riso's??? You can get PG Tips in Coles but it's pretty expensive. I just buy Tetley's for Richie. I don't drink the stuff so I couldn't give a monkey's really!!

    Hi

    We use Tetly British, and so far I've found them the best tasting tea here. I too have seen the yorkshire tea somewhere, but cannot think where. It may be the small deli at St Agnes

    Try Dilma's extra strength tea bags. Tetleys and PG tips are just sweepings off the floor in comparison. Trust me i'm a tea fanatic. Paul

    Me neither. I ran out of coffee and as we had some tea in (Tracey's mum drinks it) I thought I would try the stuff and see why it makes things better when your upset (seen it on Eastenders). Anyway made 'a brew' and very nearly 2.gif and so went shopping. :biglaugh:

     

    Deep respect to all you tea drinkers. I really don't know how you do it. :notworthy:

    Can't stand Dilmah's - like drinking a cup of tea made by someone wearing strong perfume! Most of the cafes seem to serve Liptons (yukk) but I find the Tetleys All Rounder Bags are the best of the bunch, although in the market you can buy Yorkshire Tea bags if that's the kind you like (don't like them myself - tea is too caramel coloured!) If you like coffee, there is a great stall in the Market called The Grind (I think) that sells all different kinds of beans, as well as Cons Food Market. Love the smell of coffee brewing, hate the taste of it though!

    Yorkshire tea is the best tea in the world.

     

    And by the way we live on the edge of the plantation by the pudding factory.;)

    In the UK I drank PG Tips and nothing else.

     

    Here, they taste wishy washy and 'odd' - I put it down to the water.

     

    I did drink Tetleys for a while, that was good but then got introduced to Dilmah tea bags. Very nice. Highly recommended.

    i brought tea bags in to oz from new zealand - i declared them, stood in a declare queue for an hour in melbourne, they let me have them and we missed our flight to adelaide...

     

    lesson learnt :)

    this thread goes to show how personal a tea of cup is.... give it up and drink red wine instead!
