I'm drinking the perfect cup of tea so I thought I'd write a review on these excellent teabags!
I drink my tea without milk or sugar and quite strong so it is pretty obvious as soon as I start drinking if the tea is good or bad. And this is very good - some of the nicest I've had and I've tried quite a lot of varieties as I often pick whatever is on offer!
The taste is a perfect compromise between giving a bit of a kick (because that's what I want from a cup of tea - I either drink it to wake me up or to get rid of a headache) and not being bitter. It's nice and smooth and rich and has a lovely golden colour. Plenty of flavour and even when you brew it really strong the flavour comes through which is great because a lot of teas can be quite acrid if you drink them strong.
The packet is a bit of a giveaway that this is going to be good. Not only is it by appointment to her Majesty the Queen but they also boast that it is 'superior' and 'the best tasting tea you can put in your cup'. They're not wrong.
The packaging itself is a bright yellow box which is almost enough to wake you up without the caffeine hit. It's sturdy and easy to open and close which I think is important because I'm usually half asleep when I make the tea in the morning and a box with a closing lid also gives some protection to the tea inside - they're not all going to fall out. Inside the box the teabags are in foil packets. Actually I have just read that they are not foil but made entirely from wood pulp....But they're like foil and you get three or four of these in each pack so the teabags stay sealed and fresh for longer.
On the subject of the wood pulp, the packaging claims to be environmentally friendly with the cardboard being partially recycled and partially from responsibly managed forests. They also encourage you to recycle this cardboard. The foil-type wood pulp stuff is also responsibly sourced and biodegradable.
As well as the packaging being convenient, the tea doesn't take very long to brew which makes this ultra easy and quick - you don't need to do much more than dip it in the water and you have a delicious cup of tea.
The price is good too at around £2.50 for a pack of 80 bags but very often on special offer so you never need to pay quite this much for it! It's not the cheapest tea around but it is still good value and that little bit extra is really worth it for the flavour.
Summary: Definitely worth buying
