Dilmah extra strength tea 100 pack is half price at Woolies from Wednesday.
This is the best black tea imo, fragrant and delicious + doesn't go bitter if the tea bag is left in the cup for too long.
Have you compared to Twinings Extra Strong?
Not really, I like most of the Twinings black teas though, but Dilmah extra strong is the best - mainly because it us full of the proper black tea taste and aroma without the fake bitterness.
have you tried twinnings assam?
Agree with you Dilmah tea is the best imo. (esp if you want ceylon tea)
Twinnings Assam bold has different flavour but is quite nice.
I always use twinning extra strong and have this is go this from same deal last time. And now I have 98 team bags unused left
Do try it.
Much prefer Yorkshire tea over this. Horses for courses I suppose.
Great taste … and the plastic microparticles in Dilmah's teabags are also a bonus !!!
I love the billions of microplastics that enter my body when I sip a nice relaxing cup of Dilmah. Deeeeelicious.
The computer you were typing this on, the chair you were sitting on, the electricity you used to be able to type this, the car you used to drive to work in order to be able to work, so you could earn money to buy a computer and internet plan, to be able to type this… is completely natural, doesn't leave any waste, and all is recyclable?
I thought so.
These tea bags are made of paper or am I missing something.
Yorkshire teabags in the UK are very different to ours.
Ours have a metal staple to hold them together. Probably les plastic sealant I think.
i don't use teabags that aren't labelled plastique free anymore. Hot water + Plastic = you're going to have a bad day
Cut it open and then there is no more worrying about plastic.
whats this thing about plastic ? I thought they are all paper tea bags ?
You decide. Btw I prefer loose leaf tea, taste better for me compare to tea bags.
Ew. I thought you guys were joking about the plastic.
According to the World Health Organization, there's no evidence that microplastics pose a risk to human health.
So one article linked above
Brands that use plastic sealants include Tetley, Twinings’ 'heat-sealed' and 'string and tag' ranges, Yorkshire Tea and some Aldi tea bags.
After a plastic-free tea? Here are some plastic-free tea bags: Twinings
Researchers found that steeping a single plastic teabag at brewing temperature (95 °C)
released approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.1 billion nanoplastics into a
single cup of the beverage.
“We were very, very surprised,” Dr. Tufenkji told Global News.
“We thought [plastic tea bags] maybe release a couple of hundred [plastic] particles,
maybe a few thousand. So we were really shocked when we saw they’re releasing billions
of particles into a cup of tea.”
So the so-called harmless effect of micro/nanoplastics by the WHO was a long
term study ??? The same organization that stuffed up TB antibiotic resistance ??
Want to take the gamble that these particles won't ever cause serious health
problems …. just drink loose leaf or 100% biodegradable bag tea !!
I do not use tea bags anymore. Check the website
Who gives a toss whether this has microplastics or not. You people do realize that the very air you breath is filled with toxic fumes right? Killing you with every breath. And fast foods are filled with all sorts of nasties that clog up your arteries. This is just a bunch of fear-mongering. 100 teabag for $3? i'm bloody sold!
Pretty much all Dilmah tea (including loose leaf) is half price.
Got my tea. Can’t wait to see what all the hype is about. Thanks!
