Sample sipdown! (33/368)

This came as a single serving in part of a Tetley multipack, so I guess it’s a sample. I’m not a big lover of green teas for the most part, and plain bagged green teas are probably my least favourite. This is pretty generic, a blend of Chinese greens rather than any particular tea, and as it’s fannings in a bag it gets astringent pretty quickly. All that said, it’s definitely not my favourite, but not bad either. The astringency at the end of the sip is bearable, and the tea is quite bland with a grassy aftertaste. Another one tried, and another one down!

I was dog sitting for a friend all weekend and this tea was what she had in her cabinet so I thought, why not? Tetley isn’t a favourite brand of mine but it will do in a pinch. I sat down to watch Netflix with a mug full of this tea and the first thing I noticed was the aroma and how it really did smell like green tea mixed with earl grey. Quite interesting. The taste was about the same as the aroma. I could distinctively taste the green tea and I could distinctively taste the earl grey tea. One nice thing was that one flavour did not overpower the other. That being said, I didn’t find this tea all that exciting. I prefer my green tea by itself and my earl grey tea by itself. With the two flavours mixed, it’s a little odd but not entirely awful, just not for me. I was thinking that with a little cream and sugar, it might be better.

Flavors: Bergamot, Green

drank Masala by Tetley
13 tasting notes

Tasted at Full English Cafe in Austin, TX.

Tasting #1 – No Sugar, No Milk
This just tastes like a black tea with hints of spices in scent only.

Tasting #2 – 1 Lump, No Milk (PREFERRED)
For whatever reason, I can taste the spices better with just a little bit of sugar. Delicious!

Tasting #3 – 2 Lumps, No Milk
Too much sugar. At first I couldn’t taste the difference in flavor, but then I was overloaded with sweetness.

Tasting #4 – No Sugar, Milk
The consistency is horrible. I could always add more milk to make it creamier, but then I wouldn’t taste any tea. Also, being lactose intolerant makes me want to avoid adding milk all together.

Tasting #5 – 1 Lump, Milk
Still the same problem with consistency and the sugar now masks what little tea got through the milk in the first place.

Tasting #6 – 2 Lumps, Milk
Sugar milk, gross.

Flavors: Spices

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more 3 g 32 OZ / 946 ML

It is a staple in my home just because I have English in-laws that want “regular” or “normal” tea and because well it’s inexpensive and I won’t feel bad having 5 a day.

This is one of my favourite teas and I wish that it would come in a higher count container or box. I will never NOT drink this tea.

drank Pina Colada by Tetley

Another one that I’ve had iced now, and I enjoy it considerably less than the Bellini from Tetley. (Iced: threw tea bags in a pitcher of purified water and left it overnight).

There’s something oily about this one, and I can’t put my finger on it. Coconut, perhaps? No idea, but I can see it in the brew, as well as feel it when I drink it. Almost like the consistency of peach juice, or castor oil… which I’m sadly quite familiar with and not terribly fond of.

Not getting a ton of pina colada out of this either… maybe a tropical type fruit, with some coconut oily in here. Sure, I’ll drink it, it’s definitely not going to waste, but it’s something I won’t stock up on again.

Flavors: Coconut, Olive Oil, Thick, Tropical

drank Bellini by Tetley

Gosh I love this stuff. Made up a huge batch iced (just threw in teabags into purified water and left it in my fridge overnight), and with a touch of sweetener, I guzzled it down like it was candy from the Universe. Truly, yum! Upping the rating, just because it’s more of a junk food tea than anything soul-infusing, yet still, I’ve reached for this often the past few days.

Huh, I don’t think I have ever seen this here.

Yes, it really does taste like a bellini – minus the booze, and the grenadine. Just don’t oversteep it.. too much hibiscus. It’s junky, but fun.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Orange, Peach

Backlog.

Actually not too bad for a random bagged tea! I nabbed a bag of this off someone at work, and was halfway anticipating gross rancid coconut (especially since the canister of teabags had a 50% off sticker on it), but it was fairly light, mild, and nicely fruity-pineapple with creamy coconut. I don’t know exactly what was in it, but it was certainly devoid of hibiscus (YAY), and no weird rooibos flavour (I don’t actually think there was rooibos, but I had been expecting it, so it was a nice surprise not to taste it).

This was an total impulse buy. Although I am interested in decaf green tea, it was unnecessary for me to pick this up because I still have some roasted green tea that’s decaf in my collection from a tea swap I did a few months back.

Considering this is a tea bag and not loose leaf, I didn’t have high expectations to start. I brewed this tea in 450 ml of 175 degree F water for about 30 seconds. It basically just tastes like cheap green tea. Not much to say other than that. I’ll use this up but not repurchase. I’m sure I can find some good loose leaf green tea that is decaf in the future.

Steeped the bag in a mug 3/4 full of hot water for 4m30s. Topped with milk and a bit of sugar. Result is just ok, spices are a lot weaker than I like. Maybe a longer steeping time would help?

4 min, 30 sec

When i first experienced IBS, It was very awful. I kept going in and out of the bathroom, and lying down in the bed. Then, I decided to search for solutions. I drank this tea, and it helped.

I got me a dose of the ol’ conjunctivitis and I have one one these damp bad boys packed into my right socket as type these very words. 2000 perforations allow for all that soothing, tannin rich goodness to nourish and support my bloodshot peeper whilst the infection runs its course.

drank Masala by Tetley

This tea was a purchase from a local Indian food supermarket. They had many different brands but this was cheap and I hadn’t actually tried it before so thought it was worth a go.

The bags smell like clove and cinnamon which is nice but as expected. Once steeped this creates a fairly strong chai with dominant cardamom and clove aromas. Stronger and fresher than it’s raw tea bag form led me to believe.

Flavour is spicy but balanced, rich, fairly strong and actually….rather nice! The cardamom and cinnamon shine over a warm, black base tea with elements of clove, pepper, and ginger.

Must admit I don’t expect much from tea bags these days but this was lovely. Not fantastic, certainly not since I’m used to handmade chai that our local restaurants do, but in a pinch or relaxing at home this would certainly do. May be inclined to get more of this when I run out!

Your review has piqued my interest in this tea – I would really love a sample, are you interested in a swap by chance?

KittyLovesTea

I am always up for a tea swap :) Is there anything else in my cupboard that you want to try as well?

drank Orange Peach by Tetley
261 tasting notes

This evening I went out to dinner for my sister-in-law’s birthday and chose this tea from the selection. I have yet to find a peach tea that I really like (I love peaches, but peach flavoring is usually too sweet for me). This was pretty good, but it didn’t taste like peach or orange to me. It tasted like grapefruit, and something almost minty, which I think may be eucalyptus. I would drink this again if it was offered to me, but probably wouldn’t buy it.

TheLastDodo

ditto on the peach. Flavorings never get it right. It’s always too sweet or just… wrong in some way

I liked this better than Tetley’s chocolate chai – I used to drink this with milk and sugar and it was pretty good, but then I started drinking teas black, and this tea does not stand up on its’ own. It might just be that I’m not really a chai person but I would never buy this again.

Brought this to work. Was pretty happy with it for the first few bags but became quite boring after that. The chocolate doesn’t really come through. Wouldn’t buy again.

I am a huge lemon balm lover and the honey in this blend is a great addition. Really calming and soothing.

drank Green Tea Plus Glow by Tetley

Grapefruit and green tea should not go together, or at least not in this tea. I’m not the biggest fan of green tea anyway so that might be a factor in how much I dislike this tea.

I couldn’t finish the tin, so I brought it in to work, where it sat for months because nobody else liked it either. Blech.

Your basic peppermint tea. A good standby to have on the tea shelf.
