Newest Review: ... after coming home on the bus (yuck) I was stressed, tired and vaguely irritated. Nothing soothed me as much as the process of boiling water... more

I've never understood people who don't like a nice cup of tea! It can be adjusted to taste so if it's too bitter you can add sugar or more milk.
My boyfriend is one of those strange folk who don't like tea but he's great at making it! His method is to boil the kettle and pour hot water over the tea bag but then to pour that first water away. Then pour on a second lot of water and let it brew (this usually means forget about it until reminded) and then add milk and sugar. I'm lazy and just throw it all in and squeeze the bag but I do look forward to the cuppas my fella makes for me. If you're patient I suggest trying his method.
Tea is great in all weathers - I'm not sure about this thing about cooling you down but I don't think it makes you any hotter and I do think it quenches thirst quite well! I also find it to be a good hangover cure - I drink a couple of cups when I get in from a night out but then it's quite difficult to tell whether it's the alcohol or the tea that keeps me awake!
I'm quite happy drinking the cheapest tea available but not a fan of the fancy perfumed types (earl grey and all that)!
