From Cafedirect

Cafedirect Everyday Tea is a high quality, full-flavoured black tea blended to give a traditional English taste.

Each pack contains 80 round tea bags packed in 40-bag foil wrappers to keep the tea as fresh as when it was picked. A wonderful, rosy, and chestnut brew direct from fair trade producers to you.

About the Producers: Tea blending, like growing, is an art, and we are proud of the example you have in your hands. This bright refreshing blend is a careful balance of fine teas from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.We go to both Tanzania and Uganda to find fine teas with body and a distinctive rosy colour. We then blend them with Kenyan leaves, specially chosen for their fresh, delicate flavours. Great tea is not a simple matter. It requires expertise all the way from the field to the cup, which is why we continually invest in the businesses and communities of our grower partners. By training them in all aspects of production and tasting, they have the know-how to ensure our tea is always tip-top.

About the Supplier: Everything Cafédirect buys is Fairtrade – that means growers get a guaranteed minimum price for their tea. And Cafédirect helps growers and their communities in other ways too. Two growers sit on the board and most grower organisations have a shareholding in the company.

Origin: A blended tea sourced from fair trade suppliers in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Imported and produced by Cafedirect.

I found some individually wrapped teabags of this tea in a drawer, so why not use them now I´m more or less confined to heating up the water for the tea in the microwave? ;-)
I admit I needed to google the brandname, as I thought the name of the tea was “Cafédirect Hand-picked Tea”, the teabag doesn´t mention the everyday bit as the box of the loose teabags obviously does.
A mix of African origin tea tends to be strong and malty, but this isn´t what I notice when having it; no, a refreshing, citrusy taste comes through… different, not exactly my cuppa though.
What I do value : the mother company is obviously more into coffee, and offer interesting single origin coffees, and I long to check out their podcast as well…

242/365

Not a lot to say about this one, since it’s a fairly ordinary breakfast-style blend. It’s quite distinctive compared to those I usually drink, being less malty and more citrussy. It’s pretty strong; it really feels like you’re drinking something substantial, and (fortunately!) it is helping me to wake up this morning. It’s a slightly unusual blend – Ugandan, Tanzanian, and Kenyan – but I suppose that’s what you’d expect from CafeDirect.

I’m not sure whether this is even something I can purchase, since I think it’s largely used for catering, but if I did find it in a supermarket then I’d happily pick up a box. It’s bold, refreshing, and pleasantly different from the usual run of things.
