I'm giving serious consideration to adopting a milkless policy in my tea and sit down activities. Until now I've always enjoyed milk (semi-skimmed) in a nice cup of Assam tea. I am partial to both Earl Grey and Lady Grey and, in my past, drank quite a lot of Japanese Green Tea. I'm not yet sure about Darjeeling but will persevere on this front We have a canteen facility at work that offers a range of nice teas and lovely biscuits and, indeed, sit downs, however I feel that if I am ever to taste Camomile Tea I will have to ask a lady colleague to order it for me.
I wonder whether you could suggest any nice teas that can be enjoyed without milk.
|Nicey replies: Tim,
You could suck tepid water through grass cuttings and save yourself the trouble of drinking Camomile tea. As for which is best without milk not sure as we drink conventional teas that don't really lend themselves to that. Site regular Brian Barratt has written to us many times to extoll the virtues of milkless tea. Try typing 'Barratt' into our search box and reading the messages with tea cup icons.
Foxs Creations Review
|Marks and Spencer's boxed Christmas biscuits actually ARE Fox's Chocolate Creations, I'm almost sure. Do you know if any other own brand biscuits are actually 'big name'? Anyway they're on special offer at the moment, £1.50 off, which certainly makes these pricey biscuits more economical. Lovely!|
|Nicey replies: Yep its no secret that Foxs (Northern Foods) make biscuits for Marks and Sparks.|
Check out the chemical formulae of the major ingredients of tea
No wonder it's so darn tasty.
|Nicey replies: Oh yes that makes we want to put the kettle on, especially those lovely little hydroxyl groups on the end.|
Just thought I would drop you a line with regards to Karen who was asking about diet biscuits. I thought she might like to know that I have in the past lost weight on weight watchers. With weight watchers everything has a point value and you are allowed so many points in a day. Usually 18 to 20. Most biscuits are quite high in points. A custard cream is 1 1/2, but the savior of the Weight Watcher is the Cadbury's finger. You can have three of them for one point! Three biscuits for one point! Nine of them instead of one custard cream!
It's the way to go. I must go back on the diet again.....as soon as the biscuit tin is empty of anzacs!
I had problems with the foul taste of vending machine beverages until I one day realized that my problem was more one of expectations. Vending machine coffee is actually a quite nice drink, provided you don't expect it to taste a bit like coffee. It's a completely different, warm, caffeinated beverage. Try this. Put a sticker reading "Blop" over the "Tea" label on your vending machines. Expectations become different ("Hey, what is this interesting novel Blop drink? Didn't I see an ad for it on Sky?") and you might actually turn out to like it.
