I found this at my local grocery store while looking for a convenient option for morning-time rush, and my eyes quickly settled on this. I vaguely remembered a friend mentioning it as her favourite, so I bought it. I have a problem with impulse buys, but that’s okay. Anyways, when I got home I immediately put my groceries away and set about brewing this tea. It was very quick, and I added some sugar and milk as per the instructions. The first sip was a little bland, but the predominate note was definitely cinnamon. As I went through the cup, the flavour became stronger, and I could taste limited amounts of other spices. Overall, my favourite thing about this tea was the interesting way it made me feel. It made me feel very sleepy, despite being a black tea, and like my stomach was heavy and full. It was quite pleasant as a whole, and I would recommend it for after a particularly difficult bout of studying and such.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices, Sweet
This is my go-to tea for after a workout. Actually, it’s one of my go-to teas at any time, for good reason. Not only was Tetley’s Earl Grey one of the first teas I really enjoyed drinking. The tea is slightly bitter and has a warm bergamot taste – more subtle than a lot of other Earl Grey teas I’ve tried – but is still unmistakably black tea. If you can find the loose leaf in stores, it’s well worth the extra couple dollars, but a pack of tea bags works (for this) in a pinch.
I can’t stop drinking this, and it’s become a daily NEED, rather than a want.
I usually make it as part of my butter/coconut oil tea (a la Bulletproof Tea style) every morning. So, brew the tea until it’s strong as molasses, then add 2 TB of coconut oil, sometimes some protein powder, and stevia. Blend – drink.
I adore turmeric teas, which is why I got it initially. Plus, I think it was on sale. Turmeric, ginger, tulsi… it’s literally the perfect combination for kapha-based folks (like me), or those that need some lovin’ in the heat/warmth department within their bodies. My partner, who is a Vata through and through, loves this stuff as well. He says it eases his joint pain.
Yes, it’s bagged tea, and yes, it’s Tetley. Still love this stuff, and can’t seem to make my own version of it that’s just as tasty.
it gets a 75 rating – it’s not GREAT, world-class tea (it’s really just herbs and spices) but it’s a go-to in my house.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Smooth, Spicy, Tulsi
Beautiful tea. I have had periods in which I cannot stand sweeteners/milks in teas amd periods in which I prefer to add a little something. However, this is tea is perfect as it is. I am not a vanilla flavoured person since I do not think its flavour is usually gotten right, so I do appreciate when I see a good vanilla- and this definitely fits that cathegory! Definitely recommend.
Also it has a very nice red color!
I’m actually not normally a fan of fruity teas. A lot of them use rosehips and similar flavors that I don’t like. This one has a lighter fruity taste. It smells really good and it also has a light, pleasant herbal flavor. I can only subtly taste the ginger, lemongrass and fennel. All of the flavors complement each other well and I think it’d be great as an iced tea too.
Flavors: Blueberry, Fennel, Ginger, Lemongrass
Well, I was going to save Tasting Note #2000 for something extraordinary, but as I have a few minutes to share What One Learns From Steepster After This Many Tasting Notes, I’ll just make my observation about this humble and tasty little English Breakfast #1 on the list:
1. Sometimes the ordinary stuff is just as satisfying as the not-so-ordinary stuff. Sometimes even more.
2. I fritter away far too much time online.
3. Everybody needs a stash of solid, no-frills, can’t-ruin-it tea that requires absolutely no brains to steep.
4. Steepster people, you are fascinating, kind, creative, funny, insightful, well-read, and great fun to hang around. I have never (not counting spam) had an unpleasant or unkind encounter here.
5. Rating and reviewing tea scientifically is beyond me. I rely on weather and whimsy. You precise and consistent people amaze me.
Count your blessings, friends. A good cup of tea is one of them, but daily you are surrounded by ones that matter more.
I do not really drink black tea on its own, or at all. But this is the best black tea to use for iced sweet tea – Southern style. Just steep it (or use a tea maker), and then add your sugar in the pitcher and pop it in the fridge. Once it’s cooled down and you pour it over some ice, it’s the perfect flavor combination to take you home.
As decaf black teas go, this one is actually one of the better ones. Many decaf teas feel like they are lacking in flavor, like they are watered down or missing something. This tea, while not spectacular, seems to suffer from this decaf tea flavor problem less than most.
Taught properly, a week of VBS with 4th graders should wear you out—you take part in the wet sponge wars, goalie the crazy-rules soccer games, dispense Band-Aids like candy and learn all the song motions. You could’ve poured what was left of me into a teaspoon after Family Night on Friday. A happy teaspoon, but ohhhhhhhhhh, my aching everything…
Couple that with a 100 degree heat spell and I just needed simple tea all week. COLD simple tea. This wasn’t bad. I wasn’t brave enough to fridge steep it—green teas always go bitter on me when I do—but I made a pot, chilled it, and wet my weary whistle. Smooth. The lemon is complementary, rather than overpowering. Must make more.

I had a coupon for this, so I picked it up at the grocery store. It’s actually pretty good. It’s in the vein of Rose Red or PG Tips, but perhaps not quite as bright. Still, it’s a recognizably British flavor and with 80 teabags in the box, I’ll be set for tea at work for some time.
