We had some time to kill today while we were out, so we decided to stop in and have sandwiches and drinks. I don’t go to Tim Horton’s often so I’m not familiar with their tea selection. To order quickly I just asked for green tea. I was able to drink it, but it didn’t taste good at all. If I wasn’t told that it was a green tea I wouldn’t have been able to recognize it. It tasted bitter and murky and oh so disappointing, especially when compared to the yummy little chicken sandwich they made me. Furthermore, the price for Tim Horton’s bagged tea confuses the heck out of me. Their prices range by the size, but regardless of the size you still only get one tea bag. The only difference is that you get a larger cup and more water. But to confuse their logic even further, after ordering, we went back and asked for a cup of hot water, and they gave it to us in a large sized cup for free. whaaaaat? Now that’s a head scratcher.

Bring your own bag and just ask for hot water. I used to work at Tim’s and I can tell you all the tea is… well icky. Most of the staff don’t keep the steeped stuff fresh either. They’ll keep an eye on the coffee but not the tea so be careful :D

Helena

I think I was the only one to ever check the steeped tea :D of course they know nothing about tea so it’s all made at boiling temp.

Good idea Helena, that way I’ll save some money, and more importantly, I can get a decent cup of tea to accompany my sandwich. I need to remember that for next time. I’m glad I didn’t go for the steeped stuff – yikes!

Helena

I’ve known people who made that mistake and found it to be too much :D I’ve started bringing my own tea to a few places. If I like the place I’ll order their tea and ask for the bag to be on the side. Then I swipe it out and put in my own stuff :D

Hmmmm. Thanks for the heads up! I used to always get steeped tea, though to be fair I added so much cream/sugar I doubt I’d have noticed if it was old.

Oh man I love the steeped tea! well, love it in the same way I love a little packet of instant milk tea. Cream and sugar and I’m very comforted, although it’s not “special” it’s loads better than their crappy bags lol

When I’m working at the college and I’ve forgotten my tea this is what I order-except I always ask for the bag separate because if they put it in their crazy hot water it BURNS the leaves and it tastes bitter and horrible. Once I let the water cool off for 10-20 min I then steep it quickly and after that it’s decent. It’s not the best tea but it works in a pinch.

Oversteeped & scalded green tea from Tim Hortons had me convinced that I didn’t actually like green tea very much for the longest time.

I was in the same boat as you when I starting drinking green tea since I made it like black/herbal teas. Luckily a lady a DAVID’s tea set me straight in how to make it :)

That’s a good idea actually! I’ve always hated the tea I’ve ordered from Tim Hortons, but now that you mention it, it might not be the fault of the actual tea. I also burned my green tea for years before learning that it wasn’t supposed to taste so bitter.

Kristal

The tea isn’t actually that bad-it’s standard green tea with lemon grass ground up and although not high quality it’s decent. It’s just their water is always crazy scalding hot.

M

That is true. Next time I’ll ask for the bag separately and wait a bit. I believe the first tea I ever drank was actually a Tim Hortons steeped tea loaded with milk and sugar. I’m not sure if I could stomach that bitter, oversteeped, oversweetened mess these days.

Kristal

I totally agree. It reminds me of my church-after the service they make (black) tea and coffee. I can’t drink coffee so one day I tried drinking their tea (they put 2 tea bags in a carafe with boiling water and leave it). I literally took one sip and dumped the rest out in the sink because it was so bitter and horrible. Not to be ungrateful but I’m my stomach can’t hand bitter, over steeped tea either.

A very simple green tea, pretty lackluster as far as green teas go.

It was good, standard green tea. However, I accidently over-steeped it, so it was a little bitter after a while.

Tims green.
Taste is rather dry and burnt.
Has no distinct flavour, atleast for a green tea.
Seems poor quality and cheap.

Buy if you must, if you want all those crazy benefits and have no qualiTea around.
