From Tetley

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.

This is my every-day tea. Deep, comforting, and reminds me of my childhood. I always think of it as an equivalent to a fuzzy blanket on cold days, but I might be slightly biased.
Handles over-steeping fairly well, but I usually steep it for about 3 minutes.
Always enjoy with a splash of milk in your favorite mug (it’s just meant to be).

This is the tea that made me think I didn’t like orange pekoe. No matter what I do, it always gets super bitter. If I make a full pot of tea instead of a cup and steep it for only about a minute it turns out drinkable, but still not very good. I’ll have it with a lot of milk and sugar if there’s no other options (like when I’m visiting family) but definitely not my tea of choice.

This was the first tea I’ve ever had, been drinking it al my life. It isn’t anything special, but it is reliable. I find it can take quite a bit of oversteeping, although once you go too far, oooh it gets bitter really fast. I need a little milk and sugar with this, possibly out of habit.

I find this isn’t a tea I drink for the flavour or experience, this is something I drink when I want something warm and comforting. Its the best for that purpose.

This is my standard everyday tea. It’s a good Orange Pekoe and isn’t much hurt by oversteeping. Good with milk and sugar.
