    Tea Pigs Liquorice and Peppermint: this is THE tea bag from heaven.. it rocks

    OK, all of you with a weak stomach for pure unadulterated tea bag fetishists.. look the hell away!

    this tea bag rocks my world!

    http://www.teapigs.co.uk/tea/all_tea...e_and_mint.htm

    Firstly.. it costs.. ITS uber money per bag. It's gonna cost you .... dearly.

    Secondly.... since WHEN did a McLaren F1 come cheap

    The teabag itself looks amazing. You can see the most inrcredible raw materials went into it... not the contents... that's for later gushings... I mean the BAG!! And when you steep it, and withdraw.... you can see the bag worked.. it just did.. and it looks awesome

    When you're in the supermarket or online, you;'re looking for this


    When you brew it... and leave it for 5 minutes to stand... your nose will be SCREAMING at you... "drink it.. drink it NOW....." and your throat will be crying.."let it in... pour it in"

    amnd then, cos you're interested.. you pull it out a bit.. and the contents have swollen.. and the tea bag is STUFFED with ..... stuff. It's pretty damn busy in that bag.. the raw ingredients are amazing!

    After your 5 minute foreplay.... and you take the first sip....


    BANG..... this incredible thoat lozenge of a .. nearly HONEY flavour slides down your throat.. it is AMAZING ! The liquorice and mint do a weird brain melting thing to your tastebuds and... you smile. Well to be honest I stood up! It made my legs straighten and I clapped.

    I now need

    A) mental help
    B) someone else to agree who has had one of these puppies... because this flavour, from this brand will knock you bandy!

    I'm yet to find a Tea Pigs bag that I like, I think part of my problem is that I find the mesh bag isn't very willing to give up the flavour.

    That said, I do really like the sound of that one. When I've worked through my current stash of tea I might pick some up.

    At present I've got a bag of white peony and rose on the go which I'm really liking. Delicious.

    It sound interesting because I love anise and liquorice is similar, but I tried peppermint tea and hated it. I keep trying different teas but I find most of them vile

    Agreed Zak. I bought a bunch o'different Teapigs after discovering them in the English Store in Cologne. Favourites have been the aforementioned, also the Japanese Popcorn and the Chilli Chai (though I ignored the recommendation of adding milk).

    Next order in a couple of days.

    If you send me a couple I might be able to help you out on that front. I have some friends who present themselves as quite the connoisseurs of such things...

    What others are good?
    Cucumber & apple?
    Coconut?

    I ran out (again) in summer this year... so I've been drinking these for 6 years! And they're still good.

    Cucumber and apple is just odd... never had the coconut

    If it don't require a tea strainer, it's probably heathen nonsense anyway!

    Re: Tea Pigs Liquorice and Peppermint: this is THE tea bag from heaven.. it rocks

    Hi Zak

    I went through a period of herbal teas, but mostly back to the regular round bags now.

    I never got beyond the standard supermarket brands. Currently have "Chamomile, vanilla and Manuka honey" in the cupboard.

    As a sweet, I love licorice, but the plain licorice tea that I tried, I threw away. Nothing like what I was expecting. The only mix that I really couldn't drink. I'm guessing what you have is nothing like that..

    So have you gone for the £62 bulk pack?

    Are you quite sure, there isn't another ingredient in your teabags
