Classic black tea…I don’t think I could live without it. I’ve been drinking multiple cups of this a day for the last 15 years of my life.

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.

Straight or doctored with milk and honey, like I’m having it tonight, I definitely prefer this to the bold Tetley. The taste is much more basic, much more classic. Perhaps it’s not the fanciest or the highest quality black tea out there, but this is what I grew up with, and it’s a comfort to have a nice big mug of it.
The ultimate comfort tea, an instant taste of my childhood :) A part of my morning routine for the last 23 years! I tend to steep this tea for longer than most. Perfect with a little bit of milk and when an extra bit of comfort is needed just add a touch of honey :)
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.
