Advantages: Good quality tea leaves
Disadvantages: For me - none
Now, I should probably start by saying that I'm a chain tea drinker, I love the stuff! So, I should be a good person to write a review on the best brand around, or at least what I think is the best brand around.
Typhoo have made a good name for themselves over the years with their standard tea bags and I for one fell in love with them after the first cup, so when I saw some Typhoo "One Cup" in my local The Original Factory Shop for 97p, I couldn't resist, naturally.
I bought a pack and went on home, flicked the kettle on and looked at the pack.
It was just a red box with the Typhoo logo on it and it said "One Cup". Simple as that really. One thing I did notice was that printed on the box was the retail price of £2.19! On the side it told me how to make a cup of tea, which if I ever need to READ ABOUT I shall be reaching for the razor blade, but I suppose it would be helpful for some real numpties! Sorry!
OK, I was still a little perplexed about what the difference would be between the One Cup and the standard Typhoo tea bags, so the only way to find out, is to brew up!
Which I did, by putting one tea bag in a Fine Bone China cup (I'm picky about only drinking tea out of Fine Bone China), poured the boiling water over it and let it sit for about 40-50 seconds. Then, give it a darn good squeeze! I add a splash of milk, but I know some who do not, nor do I add sugar by the way.
As I always do I let it sit for a few minutes then began sipping away.
The result ? Pure perfection.
There was no taste difference between the two types what so ever, they both taste the same, to me anyway.
Due to the fact I let mine infuse for a long time and squeeze the heck out of it, it was nice and strong - how I like it!
Unlike some tea bags which leave a bunch of tea leaves at the bottom of the cup (even though not bursting) I saw no more than a few speckles with Typhoo.
Needless to say when I'm in TOFS I always grab a box or two and enjoy them greatly. At the moment though, I'm drinking Tesco tea bags, not the horrid Value ones, but the ones in a red box.
However, that is another review for another day, so, goodbye!
I hope you have enjoyed reading this review.
Summary: A good quality yet cheap tea to keep your throat lubricated!
