I’m more of a coffee man myself but when I do drink tea it’s Bigalow, Lipton, or Tetley for bagged ones at work. At home it’s loose Brooke Bond Red label.

I'm enjoying all manner of tea Rooibos. There is NO caffeine in it, which sometimes fits the bill nicely. I like the vanilla notes in it. There are lots of good variations including Chais that are quite good. Lots of choices.

I second Twinings and their Earl Grey Tea, English Breakfast Tea and Prince of Wales Tea.

Though my personal favorite is TET's (True English Tea) English Breakfast Tea, I've found it to be a little hard to come by in bagged form in recent (couple of) years.

A few of my favorites: Republic of Tea, Stash, Tazo, and Celestial for herbals.

These days my favorite would be Stash "Super Irish Breakfast" tea. Nice and strong, and holds up to some sugar and milk if you wish to serve it the Irish way, too.

If I find Tazo English Breakfast in a hotel or waiting room, I'm satisfied with that option. My mom only drinks Tetlea, and even brought it with her to London in 2014 because she is so particular. Rolleyes

I have also tried some British favorites - Yorkshire Gold, and most recently PG Tips. The latter I bought from World Market for $7.99, knowing it's very popular in the UK. It's fine, not my favorite, but I mention it all the same because if I could have paid £2 at Tesco (1/3 the price), I'd probably be happier with it. Fun fact, those two teas do not have strings on the tea bags. Not like it's hard to remove with a spoon (or maybe it's designed for a tea kettle), just a random factoid.

Yorkshire Gold.
Also, I really enjoy Tazo Zen. It's the only Tazo I can actually sit through and enjoy. I went out and bought a box of full leaf bagged Tazo Zen, ripped the bags and left the tea loose in the tin. It has a much fresher taste.

Another vote for Harney & Sons. They have a huge selection of breakfast teas and black teas of excellent quality. I generally start my day with a cup of Earl Grey Supreme, English Breakfast Tea, or Scottish Morn, but throughout the day will choose from at least 20 different varieties of their teas. This time of year I enjoy Hot Cinnamon Spice, Holiday Tea, and Vanilla Black. Lately I've been hooked on Golden Monkey. If I want something lighter and sweet in the later afternoon, I like Caribe, a mixture of green and black teas enhanced with tropical flavors. In the evening, I'll stay away from caffeine, and have Tropical Green, Blueberry Green, or Decaf Vanilla Comoro. It's easy to get hooked on Harney & Sons.

We drink PG tips in our house.  Yorkshire Gold at work.
Being in the UK with access to an APO post office means I can get you all the UK tea you want Jason @Boonie21 at cost. Wink

I’m still using the tea-steeper that I spoke about here: http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=...#pid872679

However, if I was going somewhere that only bags would work - I’d pick up some biodegradables which allow one to broaden their options:

My tea selections have remained constant for the past two years, and I always steep a second cup. 

Art of Tea: 6am - almost impossible to over-steep (recommended 3-5m), and never bitter. Easily my favorite.

Art of Tea: AASM Gold - quite similar to 6am, but without the hint of honey.

Adagio Teas: Yunnan Noir - this one is sold directly in bag form (though it’s much more economical to go with the loose-leaf format).
