A few years ago I was on a big coupon kick and received a coupon for Tetley tea. I was not impressed. Compared to Red Rose, I found it rather blah. A basic black tea for a basic price.

Black tea (Orange Pekoe) is the most popular tea in the western world. The leaves of the Camellia Sinensis bush are expertly picked by hand just as they are for green tea, but after picking, they are allowed to naturally ferment. This process elicits a flavour that’s both exquisite and unmistakable. Each sip of Tetley Orange Pekoe Tea will tantalize your taste buds – making it easy for you to indulge in cup after delicious cup.

Long story short, I’ve been seeking refuge at the in-laws because the bf and I found fleas at home. Not a huge infestation, but enough to send me into a cleaning and panic frenzy for the past few days (probably more to come). And since I don’t have my tea gadgets here, I wanted something simple and bagged.
This will do! Nice and strong, half a teaspoon of sugar, and I can calm down for a little while.
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 is what I drink all night at work. In the “premium” individually-wrapped bags on a good night — from the “Food Service” box tonight. I steep it in a paper cup, swirling constantly, for under a minute, after which it gets bitter quick. Drinkable with a splash of milk — but I’m going back to 1%, because it doesn’t hold up to the fattiness of the whole milk I tried today.
