My usual tea! I’d like to get into the loose tea more but there’s just something so comforting about a pot of this tea. It’s delicious piping hot. No bitter after-taste, but lots of flavour. I take mine with just milk.

This is the tea my parents in-law drink all the time. They do a long steep but it never comes off bitter. A good all around drinking tea. I like it better than Red Rose.

I keep it in my cupboard in case they come over but I’ve got tonnes of tea I like better.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

My first-ever tea, steeped strong, with evaporated milk added. My parents still keep King Cole in their kitchen. Malty. Hoo boy, is it ever malty. Sta-RONG. Can get bitter, but forgives a longish steep. I drink it plain these days, when I have it, which is not often. Sentimental favourite, though. Not fancy but certainly dependable. More robust than Red Rose, and miles better than Tetley.

A relative in Atlantic Canada got me hooked on this orange pekoe blend.
