He came over for a few glasses of wine and a fish fry on Friday, so I asked him to bring me some Red Rose tea and Grey Poupon mustard. He brought me not only the Red Rose, but also, the Tetley, which he prefers. My first observation of the bags was that the teas he brought did not have strings or tags. The Tetley is packaged in England. I also noticed that these tea bags seemed bigger. I checked that writing on the boxes and did some math. US tea bags (I had some Lipton in the pantry) contain about 2.2 grams of tea per bag. The Tetley and Red Rose that Alan brought me contain 3.1 grams of tea per bag. So, Jenise, if you want to do a comparison of the US and Canadian again, you may want to increase the number of US tea bags by 50%. I had a cup of each of the ones Alan brought me this afternoon. Both were much stronger and darker than than any US tea I've had, but that could be due to the volume of tea in the bags. And, I did prefer the English Tetley to the Red Rose. Regarding the mustard, instead of Grey Poupon, Alan brought me Maille Dijon, which he prefers, so I'll have to give that a try.
