Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
It's worth getting a teapot even if you use teabags. Tea made in a cup just isn't the same. For one thing it makes the cup too hot to hold comfortably. And with a pot you can top up with water for a second cup.
The tea in bags is more or less powdered, as compared with the loose tea, which is still leafs. Affects the taste.
Honey is OK with Redbush Tea from South Africa (which isn't tea, but it's said to be good for you - and Precious Ramotswe swears by it), but for ordinary tea, sugar is a less intrusive way of sweetening it than honey, which has a strong flavour of its own.
