bought english tetley's tea bags after reading many a limey endorsement in various publications over the yrs. it was very yucky. it had a very unpleasant flavour. they were cheap and they tasted it. bleck. i also have a very hard time understanding the english habit of putting milk into tea. ick. i also don't get earl grey tea. isn't it weird tasting? isn't it unyummy? to balance out the antibritness of this post i will say that i like scones and english muffins and um, i tried a sample english farmhouse cheddar yesterday and it was the best cheddar i've ever tasted. i can enjoy cucumber sandwiches when i'm in the mood and i have to say the whole taking time out for tea and sweets in the afternoon idea was a very very good one, english people. thank you for that.
