This is the only tea I drink at the office.
It’s never bitter and always consistent. I add lemon to it. There is nothing special about this tea. Just a comfortable cup.
What this tea IS good for, is making you appreciate all those really good teas you have.

In trying out a variety of standard black tea blends, I bought a large container of loose Tetley at my local Indian foods store. (I will not lie, I bought it primarily because the container reminds me of the TARDIS, a replica of which sits on my tea shelf.) It was the only loose tea I tried that came in a “nugget” form—like Grape Nuts—and it had ABSOLUTELY no flavor at all! I tried steeping more of it, steeping it longer, drinking it black and with milk, and I just couldn’t squeeze any flavor out of it. The only reason I gave it points at all is that it did not have an unpleasant smell or taste, as some of the other teas did.

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.

I do not like the taste of Tetley. No matter if I steep it for 1, 2, or 3 mins-it doesn’t matter. I hate the comparison of steeping grass clippings, since I have never done so, I feel it is not a fair comparison. However, that is all I can think of, to compare the taste to. I used to buy Lipton to have on hand when my Grandmother visits. She now drinks Tetley and she brings it herself. I am hoping that she will maybe try one of my teas instead, I only have 20 sitting on the counter currently! I grew up on Lipton, so if I had a comfort tea, that would be it. Sorry Tetley.
