I must admit, few of this month’s supermarket offers are that purse-friendly. There are plenty of two-for-ones, but many of these appear to be processed foods or products such as £5.99 packets of battery chicken fillets, which were of dubious value to begin with.
However, Sainsburys is doing a good halfprice deal on Twinings teabags. Boxes of 80 Twinings Everyday teabags are selling at 99p, down from £1.98. That’s just over 1p per bag.
I’m very, very, very snotty about my tea – no dusty economy teabags on this site, thank you very much! – but Twinings Everyday isn’t half bad. It’s fairly strong, well-rounded – and endorsed by Stephen Fry.
The offer lasts until 22 July.
On a sidenote: I was amused that the Twinings website encourages readers to make themselves a cup of tea every 50 minutes.
