I decided to pick up a Timmie’s Steeped Tea (1 cream, 2 sugars) with my lunch today, as part of my (delicious!) lunch combo. If you’re in a hurry or otherwise not keeping track of time, bagged tea may become over-steeped. Timmie’s steeped tea is a good option for on-the-go tea.
I usually find that the milk – or cream, or whatever they are using at Timmie’s – gives their steeped tea a strange taste. A few times before I have been given a cup of tea that tastes as though the milk in it has spoiled – not today! Today I was greeted by a warm and welcoming cup.
While the cream does have a strong effect on the tea, it is still a delightful drink – although, I should had asked for more sugar. There is an initial sweetness, but it does not linger.
Sadly, I stretched this cup out too long, and the last bits were rather cold, bringing out the tiniest bit of bitterness. I would not say that Timmie’s compares to a home-brewed cup, but it’s definitely a welcome treat on a cold day.
Recommended for those who want a good cup on the go.
