Just drippy, messy tea leaves to chase down.

Any leftover tea leaves are dumped out at the end of the day and a fresh batch of esencja is brewed the next morning. Guess yoiu run with a Polish yuppy crowd where quick & easy is all that counts.

while taking the thread off topic

I wouldn't dream of it -- that's your speciality.

will most probably be cheaper.

I would imagine that the cost of delivery would throw it off somewhat no? I normally pay 29zl inc delivery for 160 bags and I can't really complain about that. Do you not pay by the box load for delivery on british corner shop? I suppose I could buy more things to make the delivery worthwhile, but then it doesn't really make my tea cheaper as I've just paid for a load of stuff I didn't want to get it. Does that make sense? I could sense it getting more convoluted as I typed.

As for regular supermarket tea. I think the Tetley Intensive Black (not earl grey, i can't stomach it) is not a bad brew.

Looks like your supplier is cheaper: britishcornershop .co.uk/yorkshire-taylors-tea-drinks

Who is your supplier and do they do anything other than tea?

Nope, just people who want good quality products and who understand that there's often a little science behind good food and drinks. The kind of people who actually try recipes before recommending them, or writing about them.

The very simple fact is that steeping tea for too long produces a bitter drink because the high molecular weight tannins are drawn out by over-steeping. You can drone on for hours about how your supposedly slavic method is the finest on the planet but the facts, as usual, are against you.

Try Marks & Spencer in PL - they have something very similar.

the Polish/Slavic teapot method

Now almost everybody in PL uses teabags. Very little loose tea is sold. Do you use a privy in the garden too? Nothing beats tradition!

I just search on Allegro and sort results from cheapest to most expensive. The price has gone up a bit since I last searched (about 2 months ago, as I said, I am more of an occasional tea drinker) and is now 33.50 with delivery.

Try Marks & Spencer in PL - they have something very similar.

Thanks for the tip, but there is no M&S in Kraków so I will stick with Allegro.

Harry - do you know of any potential customs charges or anything on the "banned list"?
