Never a bad tea, and never a great tea. This tea is fairly sweet
-even more-so with milk and sugar, which is my favored way of having my tea. It is light and occasionally slightly astringent. My big problem with this seems to be that Tetly is very inconsistent with this blend-I’ve had some boxes that were fairly strong (love) and some boxes that seemed pretty week (not so much love).
Hmm, not my favourite. It’s an odd combination. I like my tea unadorned, and this probably needs sugar or milk. I’ll give it a shot another time.

My interview went ok Friday but I won’t get the job. I do not have 3D drafting experience. The earliest I can take a class for this is August. I was afraid I was going to not feel well during the interview but I felt great, maybe adrenaline kicked in or something. Anyway after playing at church this morning I came home and hit the couch. After a 5 minute power nap I woke up and the crud hit me hard. I feel like %^&*#! Chased Advil with multiple Mtn Dews. Had to run to the funeral home for a church friend. Came home and plopped on the couch again, where I intend to stay. Now I am in need of iced tea. This was made. It is cold. Decaf is probably a good thing at this point. Hope tomorrow brings dry warmer weather and the end of crud.
Forgot my infuser at home today so decided to have some of this.
I’m enjoying it more than I thought I would. Nice to know that I’ll still enjoy bagged tea if I need to. :p
I think I still have one unopened tin sitting in my cupboard. Now that I know it’s hard to find I may savor it more!
I mostly use this tea to make iced tea, and most likely will mix half and half with lemonade.
So if anyone has been following my tasting notes as of recent, I have been doing lots of tea experiments. I have been feeling like a bada$$ mad tea scientist :P
Inspired by a discussion topic on tea cocktails, I decided to steep this in 1 cup of gin. Steeped for about 20 hours, then mixed with lemonade. One cup of tea/gin to 8 cups lemonade. It turned out delicious. I would have like the orange pekoe to have been stronger though. Will steep longer next time.
I fixed some of this because it was leftover from a party and I just wanted some simple iced tea with my lunch. I felt funny steeping Tetley tea in my Teavana tumbler. ;P I brewed double strength but I regret not timing the steep because it made it bitter. I went ahead and added both extra sugar and lemon. Once the ice melted it was a pretty decent drink. :)
In trying out a variety of standard black tea blends, I bought a large container of loose Tetley at my local Indian foods store. (I will not lie, I bought it primarily because the container reminds me of the TARDIS, a replica of which sits on my tea shelf.) It was the only loose tea I tried that came in a “nugget” form—like Grape Nuts—and it had ABSOLUTELY no flavor at all! I tried steeping more of it, steeping it longer, drinking it black and with milk, and I just couldn’t squeeze any flavor out of it. The only reason I gave it points at all is that it did not have an unpleasant smell or taste, as some of the other teas did.
A Nice, light green tea that my co worker gave me. I like it, although with Tetley I find you gotta make sure not to overstep your tea. 1 minute I find is plenty, and the bag can easily be reused again.
Not even close to what I wanted but it was cold. My home is 80 degrees today as it was yesterday. The cooling guy just left – a tripped relay and low on coolant. Kinda figures, it is 20 years old. Not having a job, I was holding my breath and praying it would not be the compressor. I am on oxygen and can’t tolerate humidity. I have to have A/C. So doing my happy dance and saying some praises. Once again an example that sometimes the blessing is in the sustaining through the drought. When it gets back down to 72 in here I am having real tea, and then wait for the storms to roll through tonight.
We were in the UK this weekend to attend a family wedding. To make a lot of things a lot easier we had booked local accomodations for the night. It was… Well, it was a bed, anyway. In the room there was also the luxury of the possibility of making a cup of tea or coffee, according to ones preferences.
This was the tea available.
Well. I shan’t go into too much detail because I remember only these few things about it. Either this was all there was to remember or I’ve simply surpressed the rest of it. To put it down in a few keywords, this is what it was like,
It smelled strongly like wet cardboard and tasted faintly like ashes.
And when I say ashes, I don’t mean that it was in way smoky or at one point had been smoky. It was just bad.
But it was all there was, and I was in need.
I was surprised at how much I enjoy this. I get two steeps out of the bag. It does what it sets out to do and has a natural sweetness. I will definitely be repurchasing.
There’s an Indian shop just up the road from my nest, it sells all sorts of things, from incense, food & spices. I was making a fish curry stew one day and realised I had run out of chillies to taste with.. So off I went to this mystical shop, I got what I needed and on my way to the till, I got distracted by what I’d call a minor exhibition of randomly selected not so interesting tea, but I saw this little box that cost R12 (R7=1$. So you can do the math) anyway, I said why not? Would be exciting to start off with some chai before my indian dish. Returned to my nest and prepared a cup.. Or two.. Maybe three:)? Can’t remember… I do remember the smell of burning curry though. Haha… I was literally obliviously relaxed.. I mean, I was irie.. Frankly,subtle sedation would describe the state I was in… I felt reawakened and energised to cook again and get to some work.. Not a bad choice at all… Recommend it as a ‘take a break’ kind of tea.. Just don’t add sugar or milk.. Yes, it is tea bagged:( but don’t let that discourage you from trying this spicy tea… Not bad at all:)
May not be a bonanza of flavor or anything but I always have some in stock to have after a meal or just casually during the day. Easy to find, inexpensive, can’t go wrong with this one.
Wow! SUPER spicy, though not much chocolate :(
Still, a very good Chai blend with a subtle after-taste of cocao. I’d drink it again on a chilly day.
The best because it’s not herbal…still an orange pekoe…amazing aroma
I think I figured out why my taster has been off. I thought it was because I burned my tongue on too hot of a cup. This morning I realized I recently re-started using generic Flonase for allergies. I don’t remember it dulling my senses before. Hope it passes soon. For now this was cold and easy. For bagged decaf it ain’t too shabby.
I love it, if nothing more than the comfort of childhood tradition. :-)
