Is there anything more British than a decent cup of tea? Yes I know the leaves themselves come from overseas, but the “nice cup of tea” thing is definitely a British phenomena. Tea is obviously the best drink in the world, and can solve everything – I may have mentioned that before…!
I was recently sent a trial pack of Victory Tea (Blend No 1) to try, and I have to say it does make a lovely fragrant cuppa.
The traditional rectangular mesh tea bags were packaged in foil, and the scent of loveliness just burst out when I broke into the packet. And the lovely smell continued when I poured over the water. It created a strong flavoursome cup of tea, and with a dash of milk and a biscuit (or two) it went down a treat. Cup after cup.
Victory Tea, a British company, choose their tea from the very best sources around the world. It’s ethical too – the company has long term relationships with their suppliers and regularly visit them to ensure the workers are treated with understanding and fairness. Good.
But the thing about Victory Tea that might really make a difference to you, is that you can buy it in bulk. If you drink lots of tea (like I do!) then you can buy 1,600 tea bags (packed in foil in lots of 40) for £30. If you think that PG Tips is £4.25 for 160 bags in Sainsburys, just packed in a cardboard box, you’re saving money and getting fresher tea this way.
Mmmm tea. Really can’t beat it. As good as my usual brand. Now if only they did a decaf version…
