    Yorkshire Tea is top stuff. However, I have recently discovered, and been drinking a lot of:

    I mean, by the law of averages, there MUST be one good thing to come out of Minehead, no?

    (Also, cue abuse for Southerners messin' wi' proper Northern tea, like)

    Haha - it's a good one, the A39. It takes in Porlock Hill, IIRC. Lovely stuff.

    I'll keep a look out for that stuff, when I'm out shopping. Your reputation is at stake!

    It's quite tough to track down, I've found. I have to buy in relative bulk from a shop local to my parents' house. I really do like it though - it's got a proper 'tea' taste, none of that wishy-washy nonsense!

    Because if it was....

    No sirree - I've been a YG stalwart for many years.

    Typhoo, however? Well. Sounds more like a martial art carried out in office-wear.

    Oooh, you're bigging it up now. You must be feeling confident!

    Is it in the same vein as Yorkshire Tea or Twinings Assam?

    ooooh dont start me on Typhoo sir! Its comparable to Euro Shopper just marketed better.
    If people dont know what brand that is, its the value range in a lot of corner shops.

    Haha I am! It's got quite an Assam-like note - good and strong, but quite mellow at the same time. As much as with anything, it's 'horses-for-courses' I guess, but it certainly reaches the appropriate end of my tea colour chart and tastes great while doing so!

    Awful, isn't it. Bleurgh.

    I also got tricked into drinking a cup of decaf Tea recently. VILE.

    Tea is for old women, anyway.

    Coffee is the path of truth.

    Shush you. You can't even spell 'Moderator', it seems :p

    Coffee is excellent though - I've also got some delicious beans from Monmouth on the go in the office. The question is, what sort of grinder in the office is a step too far?

    Probably not the sort of question you want to be asking me.

    Haha I'm alright - I had but a couple of mouthfuls and realised something was up. It went down the sink. What a waste of milk and hot water it was.

    I know - that's why I asked it ;)

    You should get an HG-One in that case.

    Foolproof and robust, and no issues with electrical testing and certification in the office.

    It's a thing of beauty! Expensive, though, but it gives me an idea...
