From Typhoo

Way back in 1903, John Sumner made a refreshing discovery. By specially selecting and blending teas of outstanding quality he unlocked the secret of Typhoo OOs…a deliciously smooth tasting cuppa.

Over 100 years later Typhoo’s team of experts are passionate about perfecting every stage of the tea leaf’s journey right from the tea bush to your tea cup helping you to brew your perfect cuppa every time.
So why not put the kettle on and let those OOs infuse.

This one is good. It has a pleasant, hay-like smell in the pouch, and brews up nice and stout. It’s somewhat powdery, so unless your mesh is extra fine, it will leave some little bits of tea in your cup, if it matters to you.

I bought some of this tea at a local British specialty store. I think I might have put too much (about 3 tablespoons) tea into the coffee filter when I made this (I was in a rush).
It tastes like your generic bland black tea. It’s very bitter if you care for that in a tea (a little too bitter for me). Also, it’s more of ground tea than loose leaf. It looks like someone just emptied out the ground black tea from the Typhoo bagged tea and packaged it as loose leaf tea.
