drank British Blend by Tetley
11 tasting notes

I just tried this for the first time at a mission trip fair, so I had no control over how the tea was steeped, but I drank some with milk—of course—and was surprised by its body and flavor. From what I understand, Tetley’s British Blend is a fairly standard black tea, and I find it absolutely delicious. What surprised me the most was that despite its probably too lengthy steep time, it was not bitter. One of my fellow tea-lovers and I are even planning to see if the stand has any teabags left over after the fair!

Bio

I’m a long-time Anglophile and a relatively new tea drinker, slowly building up my knowledge of the deliciousness that is a cuppa.

I love robust black teas that I can drink with milk. I’m a milk-in-first kind of gal. A strong cuppa is one of my favorite ways to start the day. My absolute favorite is Barry’s Gold Blend. I am also very fond of herbal teas, especially soothing blends before bedtime. I enjoy green tea for its health benefits, although I have yet to master a proper brew for it. I especially like jasmine green tea. I am not very familiar with white, rooibos, honeybush, or pu-erh teas, although I hope to taste more of them. I am awfully fond of rooibos with milk and sugar, but it has been quite some time since I found one as good as my first cup.

I am always on the lookout for delicious, affordable teas, especially those that are fair trade and/or organic.
