From Tetley

Black tea (Orange Pekoe) is the most popular tea in the western world. The leaves of the Camellia Sinensis bush are expertly picked by hand just as they are for green tea, but after picking, they are allowed to naturally ferment. This process elicits a flavour that’s both exquisite and unmistakable. Each sip of Tetley Orange Pekoe Tea will tantalize your taste buds – making it easy for you to indulge in cup after delicious cup.

A few years ago I was on a big coupon kick and received a coupon for Tetley tea. I was not impressed. Compared to Red Rose, I found it rather blah. A basic black tea for a basic price.

This is the tea I grew up on, and I drink it now when I’m feeling sad or nostalgic, with milk & sugar as my Comfort Tea.

Long story short, I’ve been seeking refuge at the in-laws because the bf and I found fleas at home. Not a huge infestation, but enough to send me into a cleaning and panic frenzy for the past few days (probably more to come). And since I don’t have my tea gadgets here, I wanted something simple and bagged.

This will do! Nice and strong, half a teaspoon of sugar, and I can calm down for a little while.

Isn’t this the tea that we all grew up on? To me this tea has memories of great conversations with family, long night conversations and just the perfect cup of tea. Sometime the most simple down to earth teas are the best.

A solid black tea and, with milk, my go-to choice every morning. It’s a good balance between flavour and price.

I went away this weekend and my choices for tea were limited. I had two mugs of this with milk and sugar and it was actually pretty good. I enjoyed it.

I find this orange pekoe bitter and overly tannic. The colour is a strong orange and there is a slightly malty flavour and smell to the tea. It isn’t a terrible tea, but I do prefer other brands of orange pekoe.

This tastes alright but it is a bit weak. I made 500ml of tea with 1 bag which works great with Red Rose brand orange pekoe tea but it was a bit weak so next time I will use 2 bags or make less tea.

It is a staple in my home just because I have English in-laws that want “regular” or “normal” tea and because well it’s inexpensive and I won’t feel bad having 5 a day.

I was in the mood for this one again today. Could be partially that a lot of my stash has ended up in the office. Weekends often see me with an espresso latte, instead, but today felt like a Tetley day again. Nice and satisfying…once the puppy finally went to sleep and allowed me more than 30 seconds to sit down.
