Recently we were invited to a session of Tea tasting. Being ferocious ravenous beer drinkers, this beverage is not our typical cup of tea. Pardon the pun. We were in for a treat with Britain’s iconic leading tea brand Tetley showcasing an array of its finest flavours onto us.
We sat down with Tetley’s Tea Master Sebastian as he entertained us with nuggets of knowledge and information regarding the beverage. Such as Tetley’s rich British heritage of expertise, spanning 180 years since 1837. With a dedicated team of professional Tea Masters with over 1,000 years of experience combined, Tetley’s blending expertise is second to none. Only the finest of tea leaves are selected to create the brand’s quality blends, which are measured using the unique Uhuru language. Whether your preference is Black, Green or Herbal, Tetley’s teas are perfect for any occasion.
We indulge in the all-time-favourite Teh Tarik with Tetley’s Black Tea loose leaf range, specially crafted just for Malaysians by the blending masters themselves. Next we tried many other different blends and styles of Tea. Such as the robust, flavourful taste of Tetley’s English Breakfast, Earl Grey or Chai Spice.
The refreshing, aromatic Tetley Green Tea, Green Mint Tea or Jasmine Green Tea was an exquisite treat for the taste buds, while Tetley’s Camomile tea offers a mellow, relaxing way to unwind after a hard day’s work.
Tetley’s products come in a variety of distinct packaging, including String & Tag tea bags, round tea bags, teapot bags and loose tea. They are available at major hypermarkets and supermarkets across Malaysia. String & Tag tea bags and Canister tea bags are priced at a recommended selling price of RM11.90 and RM8.90 respectively. Meanwhile, tea bags, teapot bags and loose tea are priced from RM6.50, RM8.00 and RM8.90 respectively. Tetley teas are certified Halal.
Overall we were glad to be given the opportunity to learn something new about Tea. We wish Tetley’s the best in prospering in the Malaysian Tea Market. Our thoughts are that it is good to have different flavours and competitions to shake up the somewhat stagnant local Tea market.
