Loose tea

by Vonnelor » Nov 1st 19 10:29 am

After being off the stuff for years, The Lady Wife announced last week that she fancied a cup of "proper" tea again, so I dutifully returned home from the shops with a box of PG Tips Loose Tea. Which to our surprise is sort of crumbs, or granules, as opposed to tea leaves.

Is it supposed to be like that, and if it is, what's that about? What happened to proper loose tea?
