    I like sassafras: makes good tea.

    If you bring home tea that is satisfactory to you but not to Mrs. O, I suggest Mrs. O start bringing home the tea.

    That was my first thought since I think that is what she would tell me . I wisely caught myself though . She is very crazy and unmedicated so I try not to agitate her unless it is important . I figured one of the smart people on RPF's would know where I could get a good deal on a good quality box of tea bags and between that , what I got her for Christmas , taking her out to dinner for New Years , getting her a new TV for her birthday and all this wood I have split she may be happy to spring . This way I can concentrate on the things I like to do and neglect her ridiculous wishes and get by with it .

    Asian markets have inexpensive tea.

    You could ask her what tea she likes and then get that tea. Or you can post on here in your broken English while seeking attention.
    Specifically I wouldn't know what a good tea is. Down in these here parts the only tea we drink is Tequila.

    If she wants tea bags, go to the grocery store. If she like loose tea, try Log Cabin Tea. Mama’s Colada will give you peace and quiet until she runs out.

    The english teacher i meet in a bar in Del Rio Texas said my english is good. Tequila is just some home brew made of cactus for poor Mexican peasants . This is why I asked for the smart forum members to respond .

    There are no dems around my house . They would only want tea if someone else was paying for it.

    Asking about tea is like asking about beer. To people who don't really drink it, it seems like all the same thing, but it is definitely not.

    For a "proper cup", that is, strong black tea with no sugar and only a bit of whole milk (not cream), buy Bewleys in bags directly from bewleys.com .
    PG tips makes an acceptable proper cup and can be found at better supermarkets.

    For black with sweetener, you're basically ruining the tea, so use any English breakfast or Irish breakfast tea, and they will also do in a pinch with milk, but FFS do not put English and Irish teas next to each other in the cupboard. Burn everything British but their coal.

    ETA I don't normally do black with nothing, but it is very good to do with Earl Grey or Darjeeling. Look for Twinings in supermarkets. There is better than Twinings but also much worse... They're reliable.

    I haven't yet gotten into oolongs.

    Going into the greens, first off, everyone should, because they are awesome. Gunpowder tea is available cheap and in bulk at any asian market and they're all roughly the same. But the secret to greens, and probably the reason people don't like them, is you need to get the tea out of the water a MAXIMUM of 90 seconds after it goes in.

    The best green tea that I serve for company is Yun Wu.

    ETA a lot of what I mentioned here is more expensive than cheap ass Lipton, bit it's still all cheaper than soda. For $10 a month one can drink really enjoyable teas.

    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.
