    Looked up growing tea today. Found out it takes 3 years. Another project to attempt some day.

    Twinings Earl Grey is very good, as is Typhoo. I've never actually drank loose tea, I can't be bothered with all that fuss, but I have milk and 2 sugars if I have Typhoo, Milk and a tiny bit of sugar if it's Earl Grey, or if I'm feeling particularly bourgeois, a slice of lemon.

    Dunking's fine with tea bags, but not with fine blends. Digestives are my dunking biscuit of choice.

    I like my tea when it is not tea and is instead hot chocolate.

    I'll take the odd bit of Earl Grey (read: when stealing from flatmates), but usually stick with something more simple. No sugar (formerly did have it, but I soon realised that using sugar would involve carting yet another item back from the shops), milk after removal of teabag. Dunking acceptable as long as the biscuit is not prone to complete disintegration upon merely seeing water - I don't want slush at the end of my cuppa!

    I get horribly confused when, upon hearing that I drink tea in copious amounts, people drag me to their tea cupboard and show me their 50 types of greenfruitloosetea. The conversation generally ends with "...so where's the normal teabags?"

    I'm a tea and coffee drinker, although I tend to drink more coffee (about 10/15 glasses a day - 'cause, yeah, I kinda broke my awesome cups a while back). That's probably due to the fact that I'm a smoker, and, let's face it : coffee and cigarette is an OP 2-hits combo.
    I'm heavily biased towards black tea, any kind will do. I once tasted an amazing gunpower though, but I have no idea where it actually came from (my dad told me he got it from "a Chinese friend", didn't seem to want to elaborate on that). No sugar nor milk, but if it rains outside, it tastes better (or it doesn't, but it feels good nonetheless).
