    That is a vast subject. With sometimes vast prices, both for the tea and for the teapots.

    You can get the disc-shaped compressed Pu'er they call 茶餅 cha bing and also black teas more strongly compressed into rectangular bricks, a process that goes back hundreds of years.

    Many Chinese teas are like fine wines, you can only appreciate the nuances with lots of practice and I don't get much Chinese tea these days. Also the process to make a cup of tea can be complex. Not in the way of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, which is first and foremost about the ceremony, the different Chinese teas require different equipment simply to make a good cup of tea.

    I rather like the green, high mountain teas from Taiwan. Very fragrant, when prepared by someone who knows what they are doing, which is someone other than myself.

    Tea is a homosexuals drink.

    Especially those who have it with milk and sugar.

    Show me a man who has experimented with oriental tea and I'll show you a man whose had nearly as much cock as Tomcat

    Only joshing mate. Reminds me, I need to get some green tea and go on another health kick.

    I might try some Japanese Matcha powder.

    After I've finished experimenting with cheese

    Blimey, I've not seen a knife like that since 1975 at my granny's place in Aston.

    No sugar for me darling, I'm sweet enough already.

    When the SAS boys are coming down Pen-y-fan and regrouping at the tea urn, choose your words carefully.

    Much ado about teapots on the opening page.

    KGBGF used to make tea in a pot. I enjoyed the ceremony of the whole thing and the solemnity and elegance of the pouring.

    But lets keep it real fellas. This is a bollocks out blokes' tea-bagging thread and there is no place for ladies' fussy tea pots in here.

    Next on my holy grail quest is to check in on the Miles West Country, but Chitty's Yorkshire Proper Strong has the nose in front for now.

    ^ Miles West Country tea is now high on my list to try.

    I'd imagine that coming from the West Country it will be a strong, trustworthy tea, full of flavour and hung like a horse!

    Better to do manly things instead like plaiting hair!

    Miles have a 'two cup' teabag of their Original Blend. Same tea as the one cup version but each tea bag has about 35% more tea. So you'd get a proper builder's brew. That is on my list to try.

    I thought all tea bags were of the two cup kind, I always get two cups out of mine.

    Here it is...

    A nice cup of tea-5ced41ec69e4a-wco-1100-two-cup-2019-a


    1100 West Country Original Two Cup tea bags

    Weighing in at a hefty 3.09g per bag. Still slightly less than Barry's 3.125gpb but then there might be a difference in the grade of teabag paper to be factored in.

    They are not shy about asking for a commitment and presuming you will be loving their tea by offering it in packs of 1100 bags

    Will this confidence be borne out in the taste test? Only time will tell.
