I like Chai Tea, by Twinings, they appently drink it more than any other drink in India, it's got a nice spice to it, and has no caffene.

I love Earl Grey as well, but one must use the correct technique.

PG tips strong (bag squeezing), 2 sugar, and a dash of milk. If I really want to push the boat out... I drink coffee :)

Any tea bags - although Tetley and Co-Op Organic seem to be the most likely in my house.

Pour boiling water straight over the tea bag (in the cup obvously) and add milk a couple of seconds after.  You have to add the milk when the water is hot otherwise it goes scummy as the fat in the milk doesn't disperse properly.  Quick stir and leave to brew........ In actual fact when I'm at home, my cup holds a little over a pint so I leave the tea bag in the cup fairly often.

At work the drinks are out a machine and the tea is terrible.  I drink white coffee at work - no sugar.
Advice worth what you just paid for it.

If I ever release an album, perhaps I can get an endorsement deal for my preferred brands of tea and coffee!  8)

After spending literally weeks trying to work out the perfect way to make my perfect cuppa at work. (yeah at work, i experiment on making the perfect cup of tea instead of work but shhh)

I have came to this:

One sugar in first then add hot water, Stir and add the second sugar. Wait until the water has stopped swirling then add the milk. Stir again and remove tea bag after a good squishing against the side...

I prefer Earl Grays but my works to cheap to get them so we get the massive bags of tetly ones. There miles better than the no name ones the patients have though, those things are horrible.

Please tell me you don't put milk into a cup of Earl Gray.

Sorry thats my work xup of tea. When it comes to Earl Grey its just hot water and 2 sugars. The one at work has the elaberate setup that has maximum time wasting.

I got bought some Teapigs tea recently, and I have to say, it's by the far the best tea I've had, even better than loose tea. The only problem is, it's 4 for 15 bags...

Other than that, Earl Grey with a teaspoon of honey in it is the way to go.
