2 big mugs of strong black tea to get going. None after ~2PM or I don't stop going. Decaf tea, like decaf Coke, is nasty.

one to two, if I'm working with someone else, only one. At home, depends on the day usually only one but lately two (pot makes two cups).

rated:

  Decaf anything is disgusting. A few years ago, before I started drinking coffee and tea was still my thing, I was trying to cut down on the caffeine so bought the decaf tea. It was nasty as you say and I only ended up using three or four tea bags at a time so kinda ruined the point, anyway. Although I did and still do (on the rare occasion I still drink tea) use two regular tea bags.
Bags or loose tea?

On weekends I usually drink the full French press amount, which I think is 28 oz. At work I have a 12 oz commuter tumblerful that I don't always get the opportunity to finish before it's cold or too late in the day. The tumbler rules Klean Kanteen)! Stays hot hot for about 5 hours.

Bags brewed in the mug. I am a peasant.

  Loose tea leaves for me. I have read in several places that the tea sold in tea bags is what is leftover after loose tea is gathered. I use disposable tea bags from the Japanese grocery store, but other stores sell them as well. disposable bags
I do a blend for my guy of chamomile flowers, peppermint and spearmint that he likes. We have a blend that also has red rooibos and hibiscus. For myself I like tea, not stuff that is steeped and called tea.

The vast majority of tea is sold in bags, so that must be a seriously inefficient process! Sounds like you've read some tea snobbery to me

(we have some planks of wood left after making all the saw dust)

  Maybe some snobbery except that loose leaves I buy are usually bigger pieces of leaves which is supposed to be preferable for brewing over tea leaf dust and stems. I like adagio.com but sometimes order from another place, whose name presently escapes me. I also splurged big time on tea from The Mariage Freres.

I dont doubt the vast majority of tea in America is bagged, but what about India/China/Japan/England etc? I'd think we barely drink any compared to them.

It is the same leaves cut up so the tea brews faster, as tea bag users are an impatient bunch. Use tea bags in a multi serving pot and you'll get tannin overload from steeped too long tea. Which I happen to like but that's beside the point.

It is certainly true in England. I drink English tea, well an English brand. I can't imagine tea bags being popular in Japan but I don't know.

Anyway, stop hijacking a coffee thread.

Here's how much of a heathen I am-not only do I prefer bagged tea, but I like CHEAP black bagged tea. Think store brand. (I like Wegmans). With one exception-Lipton makes the nastiest tea on the planet. ALWAYS bitter.

If that's your scene you should head to San Francisco.

rated:
i'm back in SD now. the scene here is no slouch

rated:
That must be a regional TBing thing, you can slouch and strain (but not stew) up in SF, I assumed that's why you made the trip. Cheaper than going to Thailand.

rated:
not that anything is wrong with that. SF, that is. there are other implications with thailand that may have things wrong with them
