Cheap teabags and Cheap Coffee you know the brands you have never heard of and most probably cost a third of the normal teabag coffee price,
I cannot drink them everyone I have tasted is horrible apart from Douwe Egberts gold that isn't to bad.

If you are a tea drinker do you buy this cheapo coffee for guests? same with Coffee drinkers do you buy these cheapo teabags for guests?

What Teabags do you buy and Coffee? can you drink the cheaper brands or do you prefer quality brands?

I normally just buy the supermarket own brands, which I have always found acceptable. If there is a promotion on at the time of me buying some more, then will go for a premium brand.

Grinding your own beans is the best coffee, well if you have the beans you like smile.png
We have a coffee machine which uses beans and I have tried so many different ones many are so good,
Far better than shelf bought jars of coffee, the taste is so there.

My gadget queen daughter gave us a coffee machine and a milk frother. We hardly use them these days.
Mostly we use Kenco from the supermarket. I have a heart beat issue and avoid coffee. I drink tea, we buy PG Tips.

last year in the lockdown I treated myself to a coffee machine and frother it’s been brilliant.
I use mainly Nespresso pods, Aldi pods are also compatible.
I still buy Kenco instant decaf, it has to be Yorkshire tea

I only ever buy Tetley tea bags and Kenco Decaf coffee, but the best drinking chocolate I’ve found is Tesco’s, much cheaper than the better known brands

I also buy the beans and grind my own coffee. I don't drink a lot of tea, but when I do it's Lemon and Ginger tea bags which I buy at the supermarket.

You're not putting enough 'stuff' in your coffee! By the time I add creamer, hot coco powder, marshmallows or whipped cream (or both!).....I can't even tell that it's store brand coffee!!! LOL

I buy organic black tea in unbleached and biodegradable bags...the tea...is rich and full bodied, lovely stuff! wink.png
Coffee is organically grown Peruvian beans...ground as and when needed.
