As I am “living” in a British hotel for a while (in order to find our own place soon, I hope), I just couldn´t continue trying to enjoy the tea bags of PG Tips provided, so I discovered a Whittard of Chelsea tea stand in the shopping centre nearby and opted for a pack of Russian Caravan teabags. I know it could be a lot better, but in a hotel room, using the water boiler and cups provided, teabags are just plain practical. This tea can be drunk all day, has a slight smokey feel to it, but is never headed plain bitterness…that´ll do nicely on hotel, as far as I can tell. I´ll try to check out the loose tea variant at home pretty soon.

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
