Gwyd,

I did read a study where it was reported that dunking tea bags vastly increases the amount of anti-oxidants released into the tea, making it healthier. Anti-oxidants are also more prevalent in freshly-brewed coffee (as opposed to coffee that's been sitting a while), which I prefer to drink anyway.

Which reminds me, I missed this morning's cup! Gotta go brew some up (french press, of course.)

Erik,
I believe this is indeed true and it makes sense. Dunking forces the tea to break down and release more of its components, but it also bruises the flavor releasing flavors into the brew that are best left in the leaves.
It all depends what you are drinking the tea for, flavor or strictly for health reasons. A proper cup of tea drank for enjoyment should be properly steeped.
Heathen.

A nice English Breakfast from Twinings one yellow packet of sweetner and a dash of milk (preferably cream- I do have a sweet tooth). Served with a nice chocolate biscuit.

Longshoremen making a 'living wage'? Dude, they make one heck of a living wage, most engineers don't make that much of a living wage.

Most engineers don't work in strenuous, life threatening situations. Longshoremen have a much higher percentage of being seriously injured or dying on the job than does the average engineer.

Based on when I was in transportation the truckers deserved more money then cuz the longshoremen crushed 'em pretty often. They do have a more likelyhood of injury than an engineer though. Now that I think of it pretty much everyone has a higher likelyhood of injury than an engineer, well, maybe not an accountant.

I prefer to pay for my own tea, as opposed to have it paid for by the government, with money taken from a hard working small business owner.
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

Dunno Santa, I saw my accountant the other day and she was suffering a purdy severe paper cut! No doubt it could have been avoided had she not been stressed by the April 15th deadline!

I met some Longshoremen back in my canoe club days and the wage they were pulling even back in the mid 70's was pretty impressive!

Why is it that no one considers the possiblity that it isn't Longshorman that are getting paid too much but that most everyone else is getting paid too little.

I prefer my tea to be a bland, pre-packaged, well advertised, corporately produced spectacle (ironically funded by the coffee retailer's lobbyist PR firms. But I'm quite sure that has nothing to do with it at all...) with just a hint of acknowledgment of my very real-but-just-below-the-surface distaste of particularly dark blends of tea.

Even though my taste for a good honest cup of tea is very real, I'll always settle for the above if it's shoved down my gullet with a good does of saccharine sweetness and a milky white watered down taste to suit my sensibilities.

Mind you, I'm talking about my taste in particular, and certainly no one else's taste in tea.

According to headlines today, I see that "coffee" is the new "tea".
