o_O you use INSTANT coffee?!

Filthy Heathen. Drip/French Press/Espresso is the only way to go, however, as this is the TEA Thread i give you THIS!

BEHOLD!

No, man, just no.

A coffee pot is an interesting and hard to explain thing. It's a bit like tea in that you strain the water through the grounds and don't actually consume thr grounds, but the way to make it is... odd.

For real coffee you use a cafetiere however back to tea:

I really wouldn't be able to have tea through boiling water on a hob, and if you are doing lots you use a teapot. :)

Edit:

Also a link to the UK Tea Council full of fun facts and stuff about tea from an appropriately British point of view.

I live in the Deep South. Sweet iced tea is almost always in my refridgerator. Boil a pot of water, add Red Diamond tea bags, steep from four to eight hours, and add lots of sugar (2 1/3 cups for a gallon of tea).

I am a budding connoisseur of Chinese tea. Because that stuff is good.

An infusion of rooibos and jasmine green, or something with rosebuds. Preferably with honey. On-the-go, strongly-brewed oolong with milk and brown sugar is always nice.

For the most part, though, I just drink large quantities of green tea.

Long time tea drinker...from a family of coffee swillers. Just never got into the taste of coffee. Once I got beyond Lipton's (which was about it for available tea in my small town in my youth), I discovered the joys of taking it without mounds of sugar.

I like buying sets of variety teas (a couple of the tea shops around Minneapolis will sell small packets of miscellaneous loose leaf a dozen for five dollars or so) so that I don't get tired of just one tea type.

I have an assortment of work-related coffee cups and travel mugs; I used to have a very nice Japanese beer advertising mug but it got disappeared after a particularly badly-ending temp job.

There is a nice shop in Brisbane that I used to walk past... The window has hundreds of varieties of tea.

I never went in, though.

I recently tried Hojicha (roasted green tea) for the first time. It was really good, and if you ever get the chance to try it, you should.

Oh My
Hojicha? That sounds amazing...D:

I love tea. It is my fuel, my lifeblood, my elixir. However if it is not English Breakfast or Assam tea, it can gtfo.

Preferring coffee is practically treason.

I'm usually not a big fan of black tea, but I recently tried Assam, and it has a very unique flavor. A bit stronger than what I'm used to, but I think I like it.

I love tea, I prefer Lapsang Souchong, it has a delicious smokey flavour unlike any other tea. But in a pinch I'll drink any tea :-)

Twinings for preference they've been doing good tea for ages!

Any other Britons here find themselves taking a big box of PG Tips and an electric kettle with them if they're going to a savage land of coffee-drinkers like America? tongue

I seem to remember a certain revolution being more or less ignited due to the stuff.

There's tea in America.

Laughably small amounts, but still.

I don't know where you live, but Here in New England Tea is relatively commonplace.

Yeah. We New Englanders can't live without tea. Hell, even the General Store in my nowhere town has a whole section of the stuff. Good, expensive teas too, not the stuff you get at a supermarket.

and even our supermarkets tend to have decent stuff. Not great stuff, but not just *shudder* liptons.

Yeah. One of the supermarkets I went to even had imported Twinings tea from Britain, so I got to compare it to American Twinings. My English friend was right, British Twinings is soooo much better.

There's buckets of tea here in Pennsylvania...

...but it's usually iced. And around here sometimes people mix lemonade into it.

It's actually pretty good.
