Try different teas, El. We have loads of different flavours, here. I'm heavily into Vanilla Chai, at the moment. Oddly, when it comes to plain, basic tea, Home Bargains do some by "Robert Roberts", whoever they are. Big, brown box, with about a hundred bags for one and six, or something that silly. It's pretty good.

Just found their website:

and this is the stuff we've got:

If anywhere else sells it, I'd guess it's not as cheap as we got it for, at Home Bargains.

Used to drink fruit tea at work simply cos it tasted ok cold and that was ok. Will give that a try  :-* Branded stuff ie titles pg etc leaves a horrid tin taste in my mouth . Maybe the tannin?

There's quite a difference, between Chinese and Indian tea. Indian tea cab be  a bit like that. Earl Grey's not anything like as expensive as it used to be. Might be worth you trying that. By the way, if you use teab bags, you're getting the dusty crap that's  left, after the proper stuff's been used for tea leaves. I know bags are easier. But, loose-keaf tea's MUCH better.

Personally, I'm, like you, in that. I can't stand Typhoo, Quick Brew, or any of that stuff. It's too bland.

The cheapo places, like B&M, Home Bargains, et al, do some good brands for squat. :)

Nothing like reviving an old thread...

One tea that I'd never tried, for no particular reason, I've been recently getting into, as they say.

It tastes like no other tea I've ever tasted. But, after I got over the initial "WTF?", it's really growing on me.

It's dried, apparently, by being smoked over pine wood.

Lapsang Souchong.

As ever, the proper stuff is WAY better than the bagged crap.

Pol keeps coming home with bags of crap from Flying Tiger (Copenhagen) that make "tea". It smells like pot pourri and costs a fortune.
