Nicey replies: Adam,

The tea is simply trying to form a protective skin to stop you giving it any more abuse than you already have. Possibly in future we might have super powerful computers watching over our every move and advising us when we are in danger of making a really offensive cup of tea by bunging it a cross between a tin can and a thermos then blasting steam through it, I expect.

BTW I'm back on UK Food next Wednesday as apparently we failed to fit all of the biscuit universe into seven minutes.

(Its alright I know Adam personally so you can all be as rude as you like about his misguided tea making)

Nicey replies: Kate,

Its not manifestly wrong, as it is manifestly possible for people who like their tea a certain way to use one bag to two mugs. I would not be after a second go on your bag if it were at the cusp of producing stewed tea, would I? Remember NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown defends peoples right to make tea how they like it.

Nicey replies: Well it just so happens in our 'Summer lets try some different tea bags' oddessy, that the Wife opened up our pack of Yorkshire Tea Bags this morning, sent to us by Taylors for evaluation. I did notice that they looked fairly large. I'll try my new cramming one onto a spoon and nodding sagely test in a little while. Also from Yorkshire, Bothams sent us some of their very nice Resolution tea bags which worked well and they easily made two mugs.

BTW We were up in Newcastle a little under 2 weeks ago, thats an awful lot of bridges you have there.

Nicey replies: Jim,

I hear what you are saying but I think its one 'spoon' each plus one for the pot. As I said teabags tend to be a bit generous so I think that equation may not hold true except for people who have big teapots and like strong tea. In a very scientific test I've just scrunched a Pyramid bag onto a teaspoon and it looks like a heaped spoonful. Perhaps other people could estimate the contents of other bags?

I would say that because the flavour of the tea leached from the leaves changes as the tea brews due to higher molecular weight tannins being released, then the second cup can taste different if both are not made in quick succession. Again as with all tea matters personal taste is every thing here, but for the Wife and I the teabag is only in the mug of boiling water for a matter of a few seconds to get it to how we like it nice and refreshing.
