My tea my way.


Fully oxidized tea leaves for a robust cup.

My tea my way.

I love my tea! It's an absolute must have!

First thing on my mind when I wake up is getting that cup of tea.

And just to give all you silly people a good laugh as I did at you, here is how I make my tea :P

Boil 2 qts of water, dump into a pitcher, add bags, steep for a while, remove bags, add 1/2 cup sugar.

Now, when I want a cup of tea I pour it into a cup, toss it into the microwave for 1:30 and then enjoy 8)

Drink what you like, like what you drink ...

... brew how you like, like how you brew.


BUT also keep an open mind to new and possibly better possibilities in tea, ways to brew, teawares. :mrgreen:

My post was all in good fun :)

I'm not sure what "old fashioned way" means.

If you mean brewing by the cup then I do that a lot. I'll brew a cup of decaf if it's later in the evening.

I would most certainly explore all the different varieties of teas if I had the money to do so. As it stands now, buying black in bulk is more feasible.

I would love a naturally sweet tea. Now that would be a... sweet deal.

Old Fashioned as in using loose leafs with tea pot that has a strainer in it.
and with boiled water. From a stove would work.

and I wonder there is some one wildwide like drinking Chinese Teas, as I watch a news on TV that a tea processing plant many thousands of tons teas a year, and the Chinese people could not consume all of this~~and the taste of Chinese Tea is comfort for all people, I once heard that British like to add suger or milk into Black Tea, and how about others :?: ~~~
