drank Orange Peach by Tetley
195 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.

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

drank Vanilla Bean Chai by Tetley

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.

drank Dark Chocolate Chai by Tetley

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.

A nice flavour, and you can’t really go wrong with lemon balm. I prefer my Herbaria teabags to this, though.

drank Green Tea Plus Glow by Tetley
37 tasting notes

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.

I started out loving it, but it was a struggle to get through the last few bags in the tin. Too fruity. Not a huge fan of berry teas.

drank Black & Green by Tetley

This is turning into my go-to for a post-lunch pick-me-up. Just decent black tea with a little sharpness from the green that makes it a happy cup.

This one is really growing on me. The green freshens up the blend a bit, makes it a little bright and brassy and cheerful. Work-microwave friendly; does quite well in a steaming, not boiling mug.

Needed a diversion yesterday. The little orange sticker diverted me at Big Lots … three bucks for 72 bags. (Cheapie! Steep me! Need me!)

Tetley thinks this can handle 3-5 minutes with water brought right off a rolling boil. I departed from that a little; did water in my Hot Shot, which just barely boils before snapping off. Results…a decent, though not stellar, bagged tea with a good showing of vegetal freshness. Not strong enough for weekday mornings, I don’t think; this one will be an afternooner.

The Big Lots run was for marshmallows. I’m teaching Samson to my kiddos today; we’re going to thumb wrestle with marshmallows stuck on ’em. Want to come play?

So how many marshmallows survived the battle… and how many vanished without a trace long before?

I loved my Hot Shot and still miss it.

As a hat tip to hygiene, I had a “used marshmallow bag” that previously battled shmallows went in; we ate more afterward. One of my boys said, “This is the funnest game ever!” I grinned the rest of the day.

This is one of my staple teas. I know it’s not considered really ‘high end’, but it’s perfect. I normally hate anything ‘vanilla’ flavoured or scented – so I was surprised!

This tea smells nice but tastes bitter and medicinal with a fake blueberry taste.

It does the job. Not the best green tea but still decent if you brew it right. Plus, it’s cheap.

Excellent tea. Love the ingredients-it reminds me of my long-gone favorite, Honey Bush Lemon Ginger from DAVID’s tea. Yummy and inexpensive!

Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass, Mint

drank Bold orange pekoe by Tetley
307 tasting notes

My father likes it bold. Given the choice, he’d prefer to go with these teabags than the regular ones.
I, on the other hand, find it a little too… I don’t know what exactly. The flavour, perhaps, is more musky than the original, a little darker along with stronger, and while I might sometimes like dark or strong in certain teas… it just doesn’t serve for this cuppa.

So, unfortunately, not my favourite. Still quite drinkable, but not one I’d go out of the way for.

drank Tetley Bellini by Tetley
2 tasting notes

This tea was on clearance at my local Target, so of course I had to pick it up and give it a try. I found the most prominent aromas of the tea to be orange zest, licorice and ginger. The tea itself brewed a very nice orange/amber color but lost most of its aroma after steeping. This was not lost on me as I did not find the aroma particularly pleasing. I have drank this both hot and cold, and it is delicious both ways. When cold, there is more of a tarty bite at the end of each sip which I greatly enjoy. The orange flavor does not come across as overwhelming or artificial, although it is very dominant. I think this tea would make a wonderful summer iced tea, or even work well frozen into ice cubes or popsicles.

Flavors: Orange, Peach, Tangy, Tart

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec
