You, DB, have scarred me for life. Can never look at a tube of Smarties in the eye again.
The 'browneye' you mean

Sorry couldn't resist. Seriously though if anyone's coming back from UK with some teabags please bring an extra pack for me, I'm down to using one bag for 2 cups now!

I found PGtips tea bags in Ram's Asian shop in Zug (across the road on the left side of Metalli, if you're facing the front of Metalli shopping centre). Makes an excellent cup - add some chai spices and you have great chai tea.

Failing that, Tetley's English Breakfast tea from Migros is good too although a tad milder. Coop sells Twinings but at a rather high price.

Doesn't taste the same mental thing I know, story of my career! I just get total tea satisfaction knowing it came from UK.

By the way, didn't want to hijack the thread.
Dear OP I will be in UK from 25th to 30th September if you still haven't got what you want.

Bad Argus. They stuff called Tetley's does not resemble tea in any way, shape or form. As someone once said on this very forum it is made with the sweepings off the floor of the Tetley factory where they make the proper tea.

Golprostew: check out Britshop for yout tea fix. Plenty of good tea imported from Blighty.

Yup.
Will it be in your forthcoming autobiography, "Cheesey Rider"?

Ja, but don't most teas come from India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia? The stuff those colonials export to Blighted is the bits the workers dust off their overalls, hair caps and aprons.
