When I first arrived in the Great White North from England in 1993, this was the tea that was sold and served everywhere. If I didn’t bring a bag or two of Tetley with me to a meal, this is what I drank. It’s an above-average black tea blend with a standout Assam character. It’s produced cheaply and sold similarly so don’t expect the Queen to accept a cuppa generica, but it’s a solid backup tea.

British-born supporter of the Monarchy and of traditional tea times (including quitting work at 4:00 everyday!). I’ve no patience for herbal infusions as my palette was trained with blacks and greens. I’ve traveled extensively whilst in the Royal Navy and have had ample opportunity to sample some of the world’s best teas. I import several varieties and spend alot time blending.
