I’ve always taken a “so long as it’s hot and wet, I’ll drink it” approach to tea but, having been introduced to the Make Mine a Builder’s brand, it has become my brew of choice. The only thing I would say is that it isn’t poncey, china cup, finger in the air tea. This is big mug (ideally chipped), cold day, hotter the better tea.

Strong and black, but no bitter taste and clean tasting. It put hair on my chest! I think this is PG Tips older brother.

Saw Builder’s Tea mentioned in the movie, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. A few weeks later I saw this is in a small British import shop in Egg Harbor, WI, so I thought I’d try it. Very similar to PG Tips, but I think this might be a tad stronger.

ok, I’ll admit…..this is my brand however that aside, I think that anyone who likes strong tea will love this brew. Brews to full strength in 20 seconds and nice and refreshing so can be gulped mug after mug.

This tea has ruined me for all others. It is a good, strong tea, one that I would consider giving up my beloved coffee for (considering that the majority of my blood stream consists of coffee, this is saying something). It stands up well to sweetener and milk, and it helps to brace one against the cold. This tea makes me understand why the Brits are tea mad. It’s really good stuff.

This is one of my staple basic teas, particularly at work. In comparison to my other British imports PG Tips, Yorkshire Gold, and Barry’s Irish Breakfast), I gravitate toward Builders. Builder’s tends to be smoother and less astringent, and is more lenient to accidental over-steeping than the others. Today I’m drinking it with vanilla simple syrup.

Working class tea that makes a strong brew. The box doesn’t lie! It isn’t quality, you won’t get a memorable aroma or taste from Builders, but when you “just want a cup of strong tea”, this is a reasonable, affordable option. Makes PG Tips and Tetley seem like they’re making a half-hearted effort. I can find it at my local World Market and on Amazon. When we run out of our favorite tea, we’re always happy we have a box of Builders around.
