drank Orange Pekoe by Tim Hortons
58 tasting notes

This is absolutely average tea but at it’s an old reliable, I guess. There’s nothing really to describe because I think most people have had a plain ol’ Orange Pekoe before. I think their “steeped tea” is this tea, too. Regardless of the quality, there’s something comforting about a warm cup of Timmie’s in your hands. It just makes everything better.

drank Steeped Tea by Tim Hortons
844 tasting notes

We stopped at Tim Hortons after a cleaning spree at our old apartment and I grabbed a whole pile of food (it’s not lunch without half a dozen doughnuts, right?) and got this as part of a combo.

I got a medium with two milk, two sugar, and it was delicious, in that heavily doctored black-tea-that-tastes-like-black-tea way. Nothing special but tasty and easy to drink down fast.

Flavors: Tea

leaf in hot water

good ol’ tims donuts!

drank Green Tea by Tim Hortons
170 tasting notes

When I’m working at the college and I’ve forgotten my tea this is what I order-except I always ask for the bag separate because if they put it in their crazy hot water it BURNS the leaves and it tastes bitter and horrible. Once I let the water cool off for 10-20 min I then steep it quickly and after that it’s decent. It’s not the best tea but it works in a pinch.

Oversteeped & scalded green tea from Tim Hortons had me convinced that I didn’t actually like green tea very much for the longest time.

I was in the same boat as you when I starting drinking green tea since I made it like black/herbal teas. Luckily a lady a DAVID’s tea set me straight in how to make it :)

That’s a good idea actually! I’ve always hated the tea I’ve ordered from Tim Hortons, but now that you mention it, it might not be the fault of the actual tea. I also burned my green tea for years before learning that it wasn’t supposed to taste so bitter.

Kristal

The tea isn’t actually that bad-it’s standard green tea with lemon grass ground up and although not high quality it’s decent. It’s just their water is always crazy scalding hot.

M

That is true. Next time I’ll ask for the bag separately and wait a bit. I believe the first tea I ever drank was actually a Tim Hortons steeped tea loaded with milk and sugar. I’m not sure if I could stomach that bitter, oversteeped, oversweetened mess these days.

Kristal

I totally agree. It reminds me of my church-after the service they make (black) tea and coffee. I can’t drink coffee so one day I tried drinking their tea (they put 2 tea bags in a carafe with boiling water and leave it). I literally took one sip and dumped the rest out in the sink because it was so bitter and horrible. Not to be ungrateful but I’m my stomach can’t hand bitter, over steeped tea either.

One of the nicer of their fruit teas, i prefer it to the blueberry which is still pretty good

drank Chai Tea by Tim Hortons

I’ve tried a good dozen different chai teas and this is still my favourite – even though its the cheapest of them all, ironically.

It’s the best when that happens! :]

This tea is sweet and soothing. When I worked at Tim’s I would have a cup whenever I was sick (aka most of the winter) and it made my throat feel nice. Or at least less awful. Maybe not the best lemon tea ever but it’s not bad!

I used to work at Tim’s. I wasn’t a fan of some of their teas but I actually really liked this one. With a sugar or two it tastes like mint candy. Probably the best bagged mint tea I’ve had… I’m sure there’s a fancy loose leaf one out there that’s better though!

drank Pumpkin Spice by Tim Hortons
63 tasting notes

In short: NO.

Slightly more in depth: This tasting note is mostly to remind myself not to fall for the enticing lure of everything pumpkin spice, again. Because. No. Nope. Not this time, world. You won’t get me again! Not everything labelled pumpkin will be delicious. A lesson has been learned. This tea was so musty I ended up dumping my cup.

I’m not usually a fan of white teas, I find them to be way too weak usually (although it could just be a bad experience with supermarket white teas).

I bought a medium blueberry white and asked for two tea bags, which flavour-wise was perfect, I got just the right amount of blueberry flavour and gorgeous colour!

However, I think this one does need to be sweetened or enjoyed with a dessert, and definitely take the tea bags out after a few minutes. I’ll order this tea again, though.

(brew-time set high because I left my tea bags in, I’d probably take them out at 3-5 mins in the future)

Flavors: Blueberry

Not a bad tea if you’re craving something apple-cinnamon-y. Tastes a lot better than the apple cider sachets I bought at the grocery store, and gives me way more control over the sweetness – perfect to enjoy with a Timmy’s doughnut.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon

Very ginger and licorice heavy and spicy. A tea to wake you up. Not for everyone’s taste.

This is my go to tea when I am on conferences or travelling and there is no other option available, but there always seems to be a Tim Hortons around in Canada…so I am able to get a tea and a muffin…and this bagged tea is okay…I am a loose tea nut, but in a pinch this one is pretty good

drank Frozen Green Tea by Tim Hortons

Yeah, I’m not sure what I was thinking with this. It really tasted like 90% honey, with a little bit of green tea syrup mixeed in ice. Which is ok, if that’s what you like, but I don’t need all that sugar and honey. Now I know for sure!

Oh man, I tasted that, it was putrid to me

So I went into this fully knowing it was going to be some kind of syrup slushie. But all I can say is: Yuckie.

Definitely way artificial. And it doesn’t taste much like green tea to me at all. It is super duper sweet and actually quite bitter. I will choke it down but definitely not purchase again.

I think I’m going to stick to the “syrup masquerading as tea” drinks that I already know I like.

whatshesaid

Sooo gross! A friend came over the other day and was like “you like green tea, right! Here try this”

And I did
And then I had to scrape the taste off my tongue….blehhhhh

It’s like they took the dregs of oversteeped, bitter green tea and decided to make a drink out of it. I can’t believe people enjoy that. Next time he comes over I think I will make him a red leaf cold smoothie so he can taste something delicious made from green tea!

I suspect it only sells because people are like “green tea is good for me so I will force myself to drink it…mmmmmm…?”

Cavocorax

Or it’s just “if I have enough sugar in it then it will taste fine!”

drank Apple Cinnamon by Tim Hortons

We’re sitting in evolution now and Mike picked me up an Apple Cinnamon tea from Tim’s. You know, to survive the class still sane. I love evolution, don’t get me wrong, but this prof is a bit dry. Even with a British accent.

Sometimes I don’t feel like the adult I am when I’m sitting here in class typing up tea notes while Mike watches over my shoulder and we attempt to stifle laughter before the prof notices.

This is a decent tea. It was one of the teas I used to drink when Tim’s was my favourite. The apple here is really nice, and of course apple and cinnamon go great together. This is actually a decent herbal option.

It’s entirely cinnamony and appley. It lives up to its name. I… don’t have anything more to say than that.

drank Honey Lemon by Tim Hortons
307 tasting notes

This tea impresses me. The first time I had this, which was about a week and a half ago (I normally don’t go for the herbal teas) I was surprised by how sweet and citrusy the flavour was.
It lives up to the name honey lemon quite well, and goes down very easily. This hasn’t been a go-to tea for me before, but I think it might be when I want a caffeine-fee cuppa at Tims in the future.

drank Orange Pekoe by Tim Hortons
307 tasting notes

After my last tea, I wanted something much more tea-y. So, orange pekoe it is.
I’m thinking it would be better with milk and honey, but it’s not bad as-is, too. I think it would pair really well with something fruity.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

drank Peppermint by Tim Hortons
307 tasting notes

I have a feeling my mom could say more about this tea than I can — mint of pretty much any form is her favourite when it comes to tea. That said, it seems pleasantly minty. Nothing special, but then it doesn’t profess to be anything more than mint.

Cooling, calming, and simple. Probably would pair wonderfully with something chocolatey. Not bad at all.

Need to post ingredients on this tea. My daughter had an allergic reaction to this tea. No other sources for the ingredients online! Contains multiple compounds that could be dangerous. Even Tim Hortons does not reveal the ingredients

drank English Breakfast by Tim Hortons
307 tasting notes

Certainly not a bad bag. It has a bit of an orangey note to it, which I find amusing saying how often I have to try and convince people that no, there is no orange in orange pekoe. (This is English Breakfast, I realize, but nonetheless, both are straight teas. My point stands.)

Now I just wish that I had a nice pastry (or a few timbits) to go with it, but sadly, as I am having this at home, no such luck. Maybe next time….
