Tetley is located in none other then Yorkshire, England. The business was first founded in 1837 and is now the largest tea manufacturer in both the UK (United Kingdom) and Canada. It is also the second largest tea producer in the United States of America (USA). They produce many different brands and varieties of tea. One of their most popular products is undoubtedly their green tea, which is the product I am reviewing today.
Tetley Natural Green Tea
Tetley’s natural green tea is it’s iconic green tea. It’s a blended green tea, which ensures a smooth and refreshing taste. Tetley uses ancient Japanese techniques which lock in the flavor of their tea after it is picked. This allows the tea to taste fresh for a longer period of time, which is crucial for a prepackaged tea. Tetley’s natural green tea can be enjoyed both hot or cold.
- They have an organic option.
- Minimal bitter taste due to being a blended tea.
- Ideal for both hot and cold tea.
Tetley Green Tea, Decaffeinated
Tetley’s iconic green tea also comes in decaffeinated. Decaffeinated tea contains very little caffeine, but it may also contain less of the beneficial compounds as well. It is ideal for people who are sensitive to caffeine.
- Quality, blended green tea, with minimal bitter or astringent qualities.
- A natural and mellow taste which goes well with honey.
Tetley Black & Green Tea
Tetley’s Back & Green tea combines the smooth flavor of green tea with the bitter aromatics or black tea.
The result is a stimulating tea with a bold taste.
Tetley’s tea leaves are hand picked to ensure quality.
With its Black & Green tea, Tetley offers its customers the finest buds and tea leaves with a mellow, smooth flavor along with a natural aroma, which alone is enough to keep you fresh throughout the day. When it comes to making the perfect green tea, Tetley makes sure that all tea buds and leaves are handpicked to guarantee only the finest stuff is manufactured and packed.
- A balanced tea with a bold, smooth flavor.
- Made from quality, hand-picked tea leaves and buds
- Contains slightly higher caffeine then green tea varients.
Tetley Green Tea with Honey
Tetley’s green tea with honey is a unique product in and of itself. It uses both natural and artificial flavors to create an authentic tasting honey green tea, without the need for honey. Of course, I always prefer real, natural honey myself, but in a jam or a busy morning, this tea tastes wonderful.
- Flavored to taste like honey.
- Enjoy a honey green tea without the honey.
Tetley vs. Lipton
Many people would argue these brands are very similar. They are both made from small bits and pieces of leaves taken from the higher-end packages and runs, but that doesn’t really affect the flavor. The tea they put into tea bags is often the same tea, just the pieces that aren’t usually as pretty. When it comes to lower-priced bagged tea such as these, quite often the one with the smoothest taste wins. However here, I would say they are about the same, depending on the harvest. Both brands brew a quality cup of tea.
Can I Add Lemon and Honey to Tetley Green Tea?
Yes, you can add lemon and honey to your Tetley green tea, but just honey is probably more common.
Many people use it to help balance out the astringent qualities which some green tea can possess.
Additionally, honey has many health benefits.
Tetley may not be the Rolls-Royce of tea, but it is a great everyday tea which is sold for a reasonable price.
In addition, Tetley is committed to having no artificial or harmful ingredients in their tea.
I would say it would be hard to go wrong purchasing Tetley green tea.
