drank English Breakfast by Typhoo
48 tasting notes

I bought this tea at a local English pub with a small shoppe in it selling British goods. A box of this tea, some Quavers, and a Mars bar, and I’m walking out a happy girl after finishing my curry chicken. I actually ordered PG Tips to drink while there as my husband downed a London Porter with his meat pie. When I got the tea I noticed the round tea bag and thought it was weird since the PG Tips I have in my cupboard comes in pyramid shaped bags but when I sipped it nothing seemed amiss. When I got home and opened my newly purchased box of Typhoo to try for the first time, I recognized that this is what they served me instead of PG Tips. They both taste very similar and are both similarly strong when steeped for even the shortest amount of time. I pour the water from my kettle directly on to the bag (a process I do with all my tea bags and infusers because I believe it makes it steep faster in my impatient mind) and smush it around with my tea bag tongs for about 10 seconds then throw it away. It packs a punch even with such a minimal steep time. With teas other than PG Tips, Yorkshire, and now Typhoo I usually prefer to leave the tea bag or infuser in the entire time I’m drinking it because I like it strong, but those 3 kick my taste buds butt. Recommend if you like PG Tips and Yorkshire.

Funny how individual preferences work. It’s been a long time since I’ve had Ty-Phoo, but I remember rating it stouter/stronger than PG Tips.

Only been immersed in the world of tea for about two years. Emilie Autumn’s advocacy of the beverage really made me want to get brewing and enjoying this drink I knew so little of for all my life. Now my cabinets overfloweth! Also, I drink all my teas plain…. because I’m just that gangster, yo.
