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.
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
For some reason I like having my teas next to me when reviewing them – I can’t stop opening the lid of this one and taking a deep breath, I love the way it smells dry.
It’s one of my favourites to throw in a cup and not think too much. I usually drink my teas clear, but this isn’t bad with a splash of milk.
Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Vanilla
Trying to wake up
Liquor is smooth, dark, tasty
Oops this is decaf
This is just what I need to wash the taste of sweet chai out of my mouth! My only regret is that I really need a little boost and didn’t realize the small “naturally decaffeinated” part. Tea is naturally caffeinated so….this term confuses and makes me sad.
At first I did not like this tea due to over brewing it. Kept trying it and is one of my favorite morning teas. This tea to me has to be made in one certain mug to taste just right. Steeping time depends usually a minute up to two for making it hot or if making a big batch seven minutes only.
Flavors: Biting, Smooth
I was in the mood for this one again today. Could be partially that a lot of my stash has ended up in the office. Weekends often see me with an espresso latte, instead, but today felt like a Tetley day again. Nice and satisfying…once the puppy finally went to sleep and allowed me more than 30 seconds to sit down.
This will always be what I think of first when I hear “cup of tea”. I’ve been drinking it so long,I don’t even know how to rate or describe it. I guess it just tastes warm and comforting to me, and has the familiarity of a childhood stuffed animal. I decided to have one this morning; it’s probably been a year or so since the last, but I had a craving. It’s kind of malty and so mellow. I have it with a splash of soy milk and no sweetener, and it’s just lovely. I feel so gauche waxing romantic about a bagged tea that’s been in a Ziploc bag in my cupboard for ages, but I don’t care! It’s just what I wanted this morning, as I work from home today at the island in our kitchen, enjoying the feeling of early autumn sun on my back and listening to the dog snoring on the couch.
Flavors: Malt, Tea
Well I finally finished this tin of tea. I did like this chai and it’s a good option for the economical brand. I would probably buy this again if I was out and about and needed a chai or for the office.
For now though, so long Tetley Chai!
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices
I’m not going to lie, this tea has been sitting in my cupboard for probably years. I went home in Oct 2012 and it had been at my desk in the office for at least 2 years. I remember trying it originally and feeling as though it tasted like licorice, meaning too much anise or fennel maybe. But I kept it, partially because it stacked nicely and if I got rid of it it would mean for uneven stacking of the Tetley Brands I do keep in the cupboard. This morning was the day. I figured why not? It is not bad actually. It is a bit soft in the flavour profiles but I was modest in my steeping times. I added cream and sugar to it and it perked up. I think I will try brewing stronger next time.
I wasn’t aware this was a roobois until I saw the other reviews. It makes sense though, this is possibly my favorite tea. I love the warmth, the slight spicy aftertaste and the smell is just heavenly. A regular tea I pick up when I go to the store. Always grab a can of this. Great for a cold day and you need to…feel warm again. :3

I’m sitting here writing a Biology report on the adverse effects of excess caffeine intake so I figured I’d stick to a less caffeinated tea because some of these symptoms and conditions make me want to shudder and run away from caffeine for the rest of my life
(but we all know that’s impossible ha)
Asked my mum to buy me some basic green tea from the grocery store (because all my friends are constantly raving about it’s health benefits and whatnot, so as much as I normally dislike greens I’ve decided to attempt to down a cup occasionally) and this is what she brought back.
It’s not too bad actually, I kind of like the fruit flavour combination of the pomegranate with the green and I find that this tastes quite nice with a little honey. So all in all, definitely not going to be as much of a chore as I thought it would be to drink this. It didn’t come in loose leaf so I’m drinking bagged tea which I haven’t done in a while wow.
It was just my sisters birthday a few days ago, and I bought her Ed Sheeran tickets because literally nobody is more obsessed with that man than her. She cried because she was so surprised while I grinned because she was so happy.
Also, it’s a long weekend here in the land of polar bears and igloos. So a big happy birthday to Queen Victoria! Hoping to see some fab fireworks tomorrow haha
Tetley British Blend is the classic “Builders Teas”. They have commercials from the 80’s about the bag shape and all the perforations. To be honest, if you’re looking for a good, strong tea to get you going, this tea is one of the classics. When I was over in England for Christmas, this tea was in the house. Sadly, the house flooded when I was there. But, to keep me company in the days I had ahead with all the cleanup, Tetley British Blend was my companion. It’s a cheap, good tea and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good “Builders Tea”.
