What is your favorite hot tea from brands that use bags? I like breakfast teas/ black teas -- looking for some recommendations. But need them to be usable at work with little mess.

Twinings makes excellent black teas, and are readily available. My favorite though is PG Tips; but they can be a little messy as they come with no strings attached  Shy .

Bird Pick Tea & Herb. I've bought their oolong and it's excellent, but they have a variety of breakfast/blacks and others to choose from.

I highly recommend the St. Dalfour tea bags. They're BIO selected and they are very quality. The have a large variety, I've tried almost all of them, but my favorite are the Green Tea and the Green Tea with Mango.

Tea bags are nice and easy for work.  I was drinking PG Tips, but found a huge bag (440 ct) of London Cuppa on Amazon for under $20.

It's a pretty good strong tea.

If you like a smoky flavor, Twinings makes a decent Lapsang Souchong, very nice on a winter's day.

Thanks guys! A lot of good recommendations to try -- bagged is fine, just not loose at work.

Has anyone tried Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea? I saw this and was curious. I fell away from tea; I wasn't sure why, but realized I had gotten in to a lot of bad teas. I miss a good strong cup of tea that isn't bitter. I find it hard to pick them when there are just so many BAD ones out there. I get put off and just give up.

All the Marks & Spencer bagged teas are very, very good.  My favorite is their Earl Grey, which is every bit as good as the best leaf Earl Grey's I have had.  One bag is good for an entire pot.  No strings, though.   And the other problem is that they are hard to find in the US, except from an on-line supplier.  Readily available in England, and very inexpensive.

I don't have a favorite brand but I love Lapsang Souchong tea.  My wife loves Harney & Sons Paris.  I inadvertently turned her on to it when I met the daughter of the owners on a deal I was doing.  I ended up hiring the daughter to list a large property in CT ( not my property) and she did a great job.  Told me that her parents owned the company.  After the deal she sent me a basket of their teas.  My wife also loves T Salon Tibetan Tiger tea.  I like it as well as the Paris.  I'll often have a cup when she does while winding down for the day.  My morning beverage is always coffee though.

A man of fine taste! M&S offer the best value tea available on the British high street, always high quality and very competitively priced (no advertising to pay for etc and boxes are fairly plain.) I almost exclusively drink their Ceylon which makes for a very versatile "all day cup" but the Darjeeling is also agreeable after a meal.

We’ve tried both their gold and regular tea and like them both. For whatever reason we have the gold for breakfast every day even though it costs more than the regular.
