a Very Important Poll about teabags.

Do you squeeze them?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: a Very Important Poll about teabags.

I drink with tea leaves and tea bags, I don't discriminate. I don't squeeze, I just lift the bag up and down and swirl in the water.

Tea is amazing.

Re: a Very Important Poll about teabags.

I haven't needed to squeeze since I perfected my dunking technique. I can achieve the appropriate color and taste with the right number of dunks every time.

Re: a Very Important Poll about teabags.

I could not live happily without tea. Love it - my favourite drink bar none. I sometimes even drink it when out for dinner! I like my tea really STRONG. I drink about a dozen cups a day. I prefer loose tea but tea bags are easier. Strongest I can find are:

Ringtons, but they only home deliver; Co-op Indian Prince; Marks and Spencer Extra Strong; Fortnums and Mason Assam.

And I ALWAYS squeeze!

Re: a Very Important Poll about teabags.

I really wanted to make a selection. My answer is - sometimes. Usually not but sometimes if the tea is weak. Then I get that great tannin flavor.

Re: a Very Important Poll about teabags.

Never squeeze, only dunk and let it sit and steep. I only drink tea when sick/sore throat. I used to like iced tea but not really anymore.
