drank Steeped Tea by Tim Hortons
9 tasting notes

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.

I have found that I like milk better with my tea than cream, so I usually ask for milk at Timmies when I get steeped tea. Not the most amazing cuppa for sure, but you can’t beat the price.

That is the distinction I have found as well. Milk is much better. I didn’t realize at first that they had different options.

Yeah, me neither, til I got tea for Beryl and asked how she wanted it, and she said with milk. So I got mine same as she did. :P

Since my small collection of teas seems to be expanding, I thought it was time to join Steepster. We will see how I do!

I drink black teas almost exclusively, but I’d like to expand my tastes a bit. I’m working on a “Hot Beverage Station” at my desk which includes several teas, hot chocolate, sugar, a teapot, and a cup. Next, I hope to add a USB fridge for milk!
