Tea is ALWAYS a goodness, however you make it.

Washing machine lets you make a LOT of tea!

... in fun new flavors like Outdoor Fresh Bengal Spice (with bleach alternative). Yum!

Hmm, so that's the trick. Next time I'll be sure to use something more interesting than Earl Grey.

A warm hotel room in London on a chilly day, with a window overlooking Hyde Park; but otherwise a mug or tea pot is fine. The washing maching just sounds to noisy to go with my hotel room.

I vote mug, so you can make eight flavors in just one day at work. that, and I don't want to ruin my electric tea kettle by putting anything but water in it. :-)

For some reason, tea always tates better to me when it's been made in a kettle rather than a microwave, hot pot or coffeemaker, so I try and always put my little buddy on the stove until he sings and then I add the hot water to the actual tea bag in the cup.

When I'm making a lot of tea (the Dorky Girls Star Trek Society used to go through two or three kettles of Earl Gray a meeting), I'll just add the bags to the kettle proper, because it's metal and doesn't so much hold the flavor.

Sweet!

Btw, I've got a metal kettle too, and a bunch of fairly nice loose tea that I've been waiting for an excuse to share...

You just made me aware of the dangers of carrying around the tea bag that is currently in the back pocket of my blue jeans.

Let's just say my tea habit got a lot more affordable when I got a teapot. Also sharing a pot of tea is friendlier than everybody getting a separate mug (although depending on the size of your group separate mugs might last longer... but making more tea is pretty much never a bad thing, so that last is sorta moot).

Possibly, but they're helping me win a bet ;-)

Tea pots are awesome. I vote for the sharing aspect. Also, if you've got lots of friends around, you can use lots of tea pots. (I've got three.)

If I make tea in a mug, sometimes my Matt will have a mug. But if I make a pot, he always wants at least a tea cups worth.
