Between the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, it seems like the right time to be reviewing a tea with so many connotations of Britishness. Just see their website! Victory Tea describe themselves as the “premium bulk-buy tea brand” and it’s clear to see why.
I won a trial box of 16 teabags from Victory Tea via Twitter and when the package arrived through my front door I couldn’t wait to see what was inside.
Here’s a peek at the tea’s packaging:
Victory Tea describe themselves as the anti-supermarket tea brand, making their tea available to buy online only. They say:
This new way of buying tea online means that you’re not paying the high profit charge of the supermarkets. We sell the tea directly to you, the tea-lover with taste, and send it straight to your door. (Without masses of excess packaging either.)
What is the tea like?
I love this tea. I’ve already had three cups today and I am not bored of it, which is very unusual for me. The tea is made from a blend of East African leaves, and it’s fresh-tasting, yet earthy and with the right balance of flavours. It’s not too drying, as some teas are. But one of the main things I love about Victory Tea is its presentation. Gold foil packaging in a cardboard box scribbled with cute tea-related pictures, and a good amount of information about the tea itself. And they are good sized teabags, so the flavour really comes out during the brew.
One of the best teas out there, in my opinion. Victory Tea is up there with the good quality household name teas. So, next time you run out of tea and write PG Tips or Tetley on your shopping list, why not give Victory Tea a try instead? I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
£1.50 for a trial pack of 16 teabags. Available here.
Victory Tea even sells a box of – get this – 1600 teabags, for £30. That seems a lot, but that’s £1.50 per 80 teabags. A bargain really. And think how long 1600 teabags would last! You can use their Cuppa Calculator to work out how much money you would save. Just enter how many cups of tea you drink a day.
