You see what we're resorting to now?   Roll Eyes

Geoff - you've got a lot to answer for  Grin

(Teabags - they a lot more civilised, less messy PLUS you can easily do the environmetally-friendly thing and chuck the bag on the compost heap rather than washing those dregs down the drain...)

ahh, but on the other hand, if you use leaf tea, there is no need for the vast gas-guzzling teabag industry! I believe some teabags are also bleached......... Lips Sealed
As an aside, does anyone got cross with "posh" teabags that come with a little cord and label? - unless you have the forethought to pull it off first, if you're doing the teabug/mug thing, it entangles itself inextricably round the spoon! Roll Eyes

I really think that we should all stop drinking tea and coffee on the "grounds" that it has to be transported here from afar and the pickers are employed as slave labour.

Mint tea is Ok as the plant is indiginous.

And most importantly this will be my 499th post so just one more before I achieve HERO status  angel

the way the climate's changing, that shouldn't present a problem - it's ludicrously pricey, but http://www.tregothnan.co.uk/ Grin

I don't drink tea after working with a girl who lived on a plantation for awhile..... she didnt drink tea either. I won't bother you with details but if  you get a whiff of vomit or urine coming from your next cup of tetleys think about giving it up.  Shocked
