Due to convenience and space, I'm stuck with bagged tea at work.

Currently I'm drinking Barry's Tea, with Yorkshire and PG Tips up next. I find these better than the standard Lipton available in the states.

Are they any other bagged teas you can recommend?

These are all excellent choices. Barry's Irish Breakfast is my current favorite.

PG Tips is our household's favorite. It is available at our local grocery store in regular. My wife drinks de-caf and we order that online.
It is the best bagged tea we have found after decades of tea drinking.

I think you will enjoy all three of your choices.

Hi

As John and Phil have already said, all 3 are good choices and are popular over on my side of the pond...

Additionally you may want to take a look at Tetley (fairly similar to PG Tips, IMHO) and Bewley's (my Irish "Dublin" family members would kill me if I didn't mention them).

Take care, Mike

Hi Phil

We really should be neighbours... PG Tips is my stock cuppa. I buy 2 boxes (240 count box) at a time via Amazon...

Take care, Mike

   I really  like Barrys Gold Blend tea. Nice strong Irish tea blend. Most of my Irish friends say they were drinking this before they could walk. LOL

We've found the bagged tea most to our liking is Taylors of Harrowgate Yorkshire Gold.  We used to rotate our bagged teas, but have found that Yorkshire Gold is head and shoulders above the other bagged teas we've tried.

I was on a Salada White kick for a while.  I got Red Rose Earl Grey, and it's nice too.  Both are pretty inexpensive, but taste a whole lot better than the Lipton black that they stock at work.

Bad idea Mike. Between scones, PG Tips and talking about gardens I would never get any work done Smile

Work is highly overrated. I've been buying tea lately from Harney & Sons,and a tea snob lately; buying only loose after assembling a traditional tea mess. They have both teabags and these fancier silk pyramid affairs. I tried one in a sample and was very impressed by the brewing. I walk weekly to my mechanic/friend David's ( Surrey on Thames) and prepare tea among the assorted flotsam and jetsum of british steel. It has attracted a small following of expats. It paid off last week. After learning of my lust for a prewar Rolls-Royce (and ability to double clutch non synchro gears) I was entrusted to pick up a 1948 for servicing. Connolly leather, burl walnut, an engine quieter than church,RHD......... All I needed was Lady May from Selfridges.

Phil, I am afraid we will have to agree to disagree on this subject, as there is no such thing as a *bad idea* A6

The Fortnum & Mason house brand tea bags (boxes of 50) are generally well priced in England (my son brings them back to me in NY), and they are terrific.  Best:  Earl Grey, Darjeeling and Chai.  Each bag is actually good enough for a pot.

As for plain old, US-based, orange pekoe,  you might try Swee-Touch-Nee.   A bit hard to find, but worth it.  It was started by a bunch of Russian immigrants in the early part of the 20th century.  A very fragrant tea.

Happy sipping!

Stanley

Bird Pick Oolong. There are several versions and I ended up favoring the Signature Decaf, which retains all the flavor.

Depending on what is available at the market, I generally drink London Cuppa or PG Tips. 

The Tetley British Blend is not so bad.

I really like Barry's Irish Breakfast and I like Yorkshire regular (Red) better than Yorkshire Gold.  Another you can look for on Amazon that I like is Glengetti, a Welsh tea.  I have some Taylors of Harogate Scottish Breakfast but yet to try it.
