    I'm the same, I need to self-ban, I have more tea than in China at the moment, I'm sure!

    So I tried the Darjeeling today and found it quite tannin-y. I have my tea black no sugar. Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to brew to reduce that tannin-y bitter taste? I just use boiling water straight from the kettle, steep for about 2 minutes, jiggle a few times and remove the bag. Hoping for some expert tea brewing advice!! I do wonder if adding a touch of sugar might help but I'd rather not.

    Value-wise, you get 80 tea bags in the Assam Bold and 100 tea bags in the English Breakfast Box.
    Very helpful, thank you. I'll grab some next shop.

    Maybe try not letting the kettle boil all the way through? Or reduce the steeping time? Sometimes if the water is too hot, or it is steeped for too long, it will make them bitter. Try steeping only for a minute first. Then maybe have a play with the water temp. I haven't had darjeeling for ages, so I don't remember the best way to do it any more!

    My sister is deployed and had asked me to post some flavored teas. She can only get EB or chamomile.
    Hit me with your suggestions please!

    Is anyone else so fussy with how their tea is made that there are certain people who, if they ask "tea or coffee?" at their house, you either say "nothing, thank you", or opt for coffee?
    My ex's mum (I get along well with his parents) makes TERRIBLE cups of tea, but I'm uncomfortable making my own at their house, so I just never have tea there anymore. Lol

    Yes! @Hollywood, my Mum. I always decline an offer of tea or coffee from her (in fact most do) because her whole life she's never drunk tea or coffee, so she's clueless and terrible at making it!
