drank British Blend by Tetley
270 tasting notes

Came across this in my local store. I remember my parents buying it when we lived in England, didn’t know it made it to the US. Anyway, it’s an OK standard cup of team. Milk and sugar complements well. Sometimes it tastes a little odd. I like PG Tips better…but this will do in a pinch. Might try and get my hands on other class UK brands.

Tetley has a black and green combo that is one of my favorite office teas.

When we first started drinking hot tea, a British lady brought me a box of this and said it was the truest to what most people drank in England. Ashman loved it with milk and sugar.

Roxy King

That sounds really good, I’ll have to give it a go! I don’t find many green and black tea mixes, would be perfect for work!

Roxy King

It does hold up well to milk and sugar which is my favorite way to drink tea! I remember seeing it in the local stores in huge boxes for the few years I lived in the UK

drank Chá Preto by Tetley

Really bland, absolutely watery, almost devoid of any taste. It’s not even bad, it’s just completely featureless.

I remember drinking black tea from Tetley during my Poland trip and well, this seems a wee better :D

drank Earl Grey by Tetley
303 tasting notes

Last week I stayed a couple of nights in a hotel in Basingstoke. While the teabags offered in the tea tray in the room seemed a supermarket´s house brand (I need to look it up, but the labelling is very discrete indeed), the tea at the breakfast buffet was Tetley´s. The only black tea was this EG.
On the individually wrapped teabag it says “delicate and refreshing with a citrus hint of bergamot flavour”. Although it´s certainly not offensive in any way, it´s surely “delicate” ;-) and the “hint” of bergamot is extremely subtle. A shame, as it seems to be tea for those who don´t like tea.

Flavors: Tea

I am glad that mine EG was better than yours. Though, it wasn’t perfect either!

drank Orange Peach by Tetley
3233 tasting notes

I had only one bag of this, so by golly this is a sipdown. This is one that was gifted to me and I just never got around to trying it.

I have had this for so long that I don’t remember where it came from, and when I took it out I noticed the side of the outer bag was open. I almost tossed it, thinking it had probably lost all flavor by now, but I am glad I didn’t. This is a hibiscus tea that I would be willing to buy. I feel like I am getting more peach than orange, even though orange comes first in the name.
There is something minty or cooling here, even though it is piping hot and unsweetened. Digging the cinnamon chips. Maybe they are why I feel like this is a baked peach vibe.

If I see this in a store one day, I might buy it for making iced tea in summer. A big surprise to me that I like this one so well.

Look who mysteriously showed up at my house for breakfast! (Any Black Adder fans out there? The dog’s head reminds me of the episode where they are trying to rewrite the dictionary…)

Something bold and beefy came in handy this morning after a lousy night’s sleep. I snarfed it so quickly, there wasn’t much time for contemplation; however, I did note that you don’t often encounter a bagged tea that is instantly and easily identifed as, “Wow, that’s Assam!” Strong and acceptable without any additives. I’ll think about it harder tomorrow.

Nattie

That is the only episode of Black Adder I’ve seen! Revoking my British passport as we speak…

gmathis

The only ones I watch over and over are those with Fry and/or Laurie in them!

ashmanra

Gmathis: are you a Bertie Wooster fan, too?

Nattie

Yup, I love Stephen Fry!

gmathis

Yes on Jeeves and Wooster—I have those saved somewhere—and though it’s by an American author, I’m currently reading “Around the World with Auntie Mame,” which definitely has the same vibe. She’s currently trying to bluff her way into being introduced into Court circa 1937.

drank Vanilla Chai by Tetley
2 tasting notes

Picked up this Tea because I thought it was the normal Tetley Chai which I like and buy because of availably here, I really enjoyed this tea the second I opened it I was hit with vanilla bean smell and the taste just as strong its almost like a desert its so good.

Although I would not drink daily like I do normal chai or indian spiced tea I love it as a treat while working late or something with an extra teaspoon of sugar :)

Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla

drank Black Currant by Tetley
113 tasting notes

I kept this in the cupboard for years, for my mother-in-law. It’s a pretty solid tea! It tastes like black currant and has a base of orange pekoe, so it doesn’t just taste like Generic Black Tea. The one thing that I will say that is frustrating is that the taste / freshness seems to fade really quickly. This is not a problem for my mother-in-law as she likes her tea barely steeped, but it is sad when that flavour fades.

Flavors: Black Currant, Tannin

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

drank Pure Green Tea by Tetley
113 tasting notes

It’s a supermarket green tea but actually one of my favourites. Really clean, grassy taste and it never tastes flat or like it’s too old. Cheap and cheerful and a lovely tea when I’m sick. It goes really nice with honey or lemon honey also.

Flavors: Grass, Green, Umami, Vegetal

Preparation
150 °F / 65 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

I went to visit my friend yesterday and this was her offering for an evening cup. I enjoyed it, it’s simple and unfussy. You can taste the green tea base and mostly lemon but I didn’t really get any of the honey. The lemon isn’t as citrussy as some of the other lemon teas that I’ve had, thanks to the ginseng element which tones it down a bit and makes it more smooth with its herbal flavour. No bitterness detected at all. For a cheaper, grocery store tea, this is a good option.

Flavors: Green, Herbal, Lemon, Smooth

I have liked all the Tetley grocery-grade varieties I have tried. Their green/black blend is a staple in my office.

Jason

Agreed! They are surprisingly good!

This is my go-to tea brand tea. It’s a good blend for any time of day (since I can’t do caffeine after noon).

drank Bold orange pekoe by Tetley

Woah! This tea is strong. I usually use Tetley black tea bags to make stove-top chai, but the brewing process sadly turns the tea bitter :( I cannot comment on how this tastes just plain and made with just hot water though.

Flavors: Dirt, Earth, Mud, Musty

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

drank Orange Rooibos by Tetley

The packaging for Portuguese market looks different; but I assume the tea will be same. But it seems there aren’t much markets where is it actually offered? I was struggling finding any information.

Anyway, I got this tea from Postcrossing forum tag game.
The sender told me it’s their favourite.

It is clearly noticeable it’s rooibos. With hints of oranges, but not a juicy ones, rather just the peel. Not bad, but expectations were much higher. It’s just mediocre. Shame, (becaute) because the tea bag design seems so promising!

Flavors: Orange Zest, Rooibos

Preparation

It’s a great basic tea that’s inexpensive. I prefer PG Tips and Yorkshire Gold, but both are far more expensive. I tried Tetley’s and was pleasantly surprised by how good it is. Sometimes it’s nice to just have a good plain tea with no frills.

I picked this up when I saw it at the store a couple weeks ago. I ended up getting a mix pack of Celestial Seasonings herbal teas as well.

This one is nice because you do just drop it in your cold water. The hibiscus is very present, but I don’t mind it like this. The flavour is fruity. It’s easy. It’s tastier than cold water, plain.

I like one bag in my very large mug (22oz?) but really whatever works, I just keep adding water during the day.

Big downside: the bags are plastic so they’re not compostable.
