Normal tea, from normal shops. The most common tea that people drink here is Liptons, funny that eh!! Seems that there was a lot of advertising in the past and it has stuck. As to “hot tea” I have no idea at all unless anyone else can shed some light on it "confused"!!!!

When I lived in Poland we drank a lot earl gray (herbata zapachowa) with sugar and milk (bawarka).

'Earl Gray' is the best as far as I'm concerned.

The only tea I've ever drunk in Poland is herbata z cytryną (lemon tea), which I only make with fresh tea and lemon juice, but in Poland it can be bought as lemon-flavoured tea bags.

I've no idea who makes the tea, but it definitely seems to be all about Liptons in Poland innit haha :)

yep, lol to make a hot drink with <g>

are polish people supersticious about something so they drink it?

I've never heard anything like that......just same as everywhere, tea and coffee as a beverage......tea has usually been cheaper.

Lemon tea was always popular in our house when i was little :)

Loaded with yummy vitamin C. We usually go out and pick the raspberries ourselves to make juice for the winter and jelly, but this year we missed it :-(.

maybe the reason polish tea tastes different is because in Poland ppl usually make tea essence in a little teapot , as oppose to just using tea bag. You brew the essence first and add some to a cup about 1/4, then fill up the cup with the boiling water.

polish tea tastes different

Can also be down to the water as well........where i live atm the water is a bit hard, lol.......so hot drinks don't taste as nice as where the water is a bit softer......

Same with Guinness ! Tastes a bit different depending where it's made up as they use the local water...

There was a saying in Poland: "They've got everything, the only thing they miss is bird's milk"...well, not any more. Ptasie mleczko = bird's milk. :)
