Attempt #1 at making Snapple: Tried this iced with Lemon Green from English Tea Store and a bunch of sugar. Not bad, but a kind of weird aftertaste.

Certainly not English Breakfast tea! Typhoo is good everyday cheapo blend tea far superior to the rubbish put out by Tetleys. Nothing too special but always handy to have around when you run out of the good stuff.
This tea instantly transports me to my days at Oxford, senior summer of high school. I am by no means an old fogey, but I am a sentimental human who misses England terribly!
It is basic, strong, black tea, ground finer than most loose leaf. I like it strong, with whole milk, no sugar. Not much to say flavor-wise, but I have a soft spot for it. What can I say?
Typhoo is one of those brands so identified with the UK that you really want to like it, but it’s really weak and flat in comparison to many other brands. It is better than nothing. Anyway, what do you expect from a company that has a slogan of “Making Good Tea Since 1903”. I’m not interested in “good” tea — I want great tea!
I bought some of this tea at a local British specialty store. I think I might have put too much (about 3 tablespoons) tea into the coffee filter when I made this (I was in a rush).
It tastes like your generic bland black tea. It’s very bitter if you care for that in a tea (a little too bitter for me). Also, it’s more of ground tea than loose leaf. It looks like someone just emptied out the ground black tea from the Typhoo bagged tea and packaged it as loose leaf tea.
A good everyday tea, great when I need a pick me up at work.
Actually the decaf version of this, with milk. Not exciting or exotic in any way, but it’s my standard tea for drinking continuously all day every day. Sometimes you’ve just gotta take part in the “anyone fancy a cuppa?” ritual, and don’t care about oolong lapschong or whatever ;-)
Needed the extra caffeine today, I guess.
Oh, how I love this British tea. So dark and smooth and omg, perfect for waking up.
It’s either this or PG Tips in the morning. Love me some real British tea.
