    What a waste of a tea bag. Put tea bag in a cup. Add boiling water, milk, sugar if you wish and enjoy a restful cuppa with a chocolate digestive.
     
  6. I like that idea , in fact kettle is on now !
     
  7. It's just that the fruit ones are soooo horrible......
     
  8. thanks for that , have checked out the Twining Teabags and it is exactly what i was looking for

    Just need to find the Chocolate digestives !!
     
  9. One company sells huge rolls of teabag paper. I still haven't quite mastered turning the sheet into a tube though.
     
  10. Make it into a cuboid karen, like a box section pipe. Works well and stays in shape if you give the sides a good crease and have a decent overlap. The roll is about £35, but is so big it will last for years and years!
