Excellent choice of tea!

I agree, but I'm willing to give the "local" Tazo a try. Maybe even go loose leaf.

I usually drink a loose green but the office doesn't have a sink, so it's really more a matter of convenience in this case. I drink lots of loose teas at home :)

YEAH I drink Tazo's "Awake" ALL THE TIME. It replaced all the coffee and energy drinks for me.

Actually being English, I’m going to have to raise an eyebrow at the choice of tea—that particular one just isn’t that good (Twining’s do good herbal and fruit infusions, but aside from their Earl Greys, their black teas are lacklustre.)

If you think that’s good, try “Yorkshire Gold” from Taylors of Harrogate. Proper tea. Give it a go.

Expenses reports aren't ALWAYS that bad…

Actually being English myself, I'd say that what you like or don't rather depends upon your taste, and to a large extent, how you make it. I've tried Taylors tea before, and it's fine. I've also tried at least one Twinings Earl Grey, and thought - so-so... but if it works for you, then great.

You have to keep in mind that a lot of my choice in tea comes down to its availability in Vancouver. They only sell this brand at Costco (well this and Lipton... blech). I have many more specialty looseleaf varieties when I have time to enjoy such things at home :)

Drive Organics has loose green organic (that's strong enough that you can reuse it) for $22/kg, which seems to do the job. Not a fan of tea, of course. Oh, and it's named gunpowder for a reason (it's the leaves themselves completely dehydrated, so you'll want to use a french press or some other method of seperating leaves from tea).

Your work lacking valid recycling is also depressing (waste, glass/tin, paper, and compost).

Oh, and Jam, STOP DRAWING YOURSELF OLD.

It may just be the corporate cynic in me, but I'd speculate that the expense system at that old company is working exactly as intended if it encourages you not to submit your expenses.

I think we have tea in the breakroom. Or, rather, some mulch in in single-serving bags, purchased in the mid-nineties. But heaven help you if the coffee runs out! Fortunately, the spontaneous, office-wide short-term narcolepsy that results soon after tends to mitigate the rioting that would otherwise result from java deprivation.

I'm more a fan of the Irish Breakfast, if I had to do bagged tea, but hey, hooray for tea and expenses.

I like tea...but I love hot cocoa. No marshmallows, though.
