Lancashire Tea - from Asda - it had a label on the shelf saying "locally produced" and it is, being made about 10 miles away in Newton Le Willows (it's in Merseyside, but Merseyside was historically a part of Lancashire anyway, so I'll happily call in Lancashire tea). I was surprised by how nice it tastes, considering the old fashioned packaging and tea bag style (square). They recommend a brew of 3 - 4 minutes. I went for 3 minutes, and had a strong (but not bitter) cup of tea. They also suggest pouring the tea onto the milk, I'm not so sure about that, but each to his own. There's even a history of Lancaster printed on the bottom. If you can find some, then I'd say buy it!
