Oh, Tetley tea, what can I say about you?
This, and Red Rose are the teas that my grandmother swears by and all I have when I go for a visit (unless I want to swing by one of the 30+ Tim Hortons in Cambridge, Ontario). This is, I think, a tea I drink because I like the taste of milk and sugar. It has a bitter, if not boring, flavour on it’s own so it seems to need to be sweetened up.
However, although the flavour is nothing worth writing home about, it’s just what need to get me out of bed on a Sunday morning, or help me stay up all night when I have an unfortunate essay do the following day.
It is what it is, and that’s all that it is.
Edit: Had to bring the rating down a little bit more due to the tea pot full of this tea I just had. Added milk and sugar, but it did taste a bit like sweetened cardboard…
and/or kid’s breakfast cereal.
Which is essentially the same thing.
