Are bog-standard electric kettles not an everyday household item in the US/Canada then? Literally every house and office here has one, it's as essential as a toaster.

The very idea of not having a cuppa available is a little terrifying to me

To add to the discussion, get thee some Yorkshire Tea, it's far from fancy, should be brewed strong and sullied with full fat milk



YES. Yorkshire is the gold of teas. I for one am firmly on the side of people who remove the bag AFTER pouring the milk. And one sugar.

This is the hierarchy of standard British teabags:

Yorkshire > PG Tips > Twinings Everyday > Tetley

Barry's is the best from Ireland. The Irish drink more tea per capita than anyone in the world, and Barry's is probably the main reason why. It's delish.

And don't pour milk in before removing the bag, ohnoyoudidnt is a philistine and his (or her) advice is heretical!

But but but it's nice to squeeze out the bag and see the last tendrils of dark brown tea goodness go swirling down into the depths of your milky mug

Abroad, look for oolongs that have "Monkey Picked", "Imperial", or "Premium" in their title. Generally speaking, the first two are to signify that it's the pride of a given tea shop and thus some of their most select products. If you can, try a cup before committing, though, because a lot of the more expensive oolongs tend towards much more subtle differences.

...Is it actually picked by monkeys? Because that would be ace.
