In 1837, two brothers, Joseph and Edward Tetley started to sell tea and became such a success they set up as tea merchants. In 1856, they set up "Joseph Tetley & Company, Wholesale Tea Dealers".
Business was good and the company grew. As well as selling tea, Joseph Tetley & Co also began to blend and package it. In the 1880s they began to sell tea to the United States of America, and started to bring ideas back; one of these was the tea bag.
Tea was rationed during World War II, it was not until 1953, just after rationing finished, that Tetley launched the tea bag to the UK and it was an immediate success. The tea bag had captured the public's imagination and desire for convenience. Within 10 years it revolutionized how people drank tea and the old fashioned tea pot had given way to making tea in a cup using a tea bag.
Since the 1960s, Tetley has continued to develop people's love of tea drinking by introducing innovative and exciting ideas in many different countries. In 1989, Tetley launched the round tea bag, latching on to the fashion to drink tea in a mug, rather than a cup. Next came the Drawstring 'no drip, no mess' tea bag.
In 1974 Tetley Tea Company was bought by J Lyons who merged it with the Lyons tea business to form Lyons Tetley. 1978 Allied Breweries acquired J Lyons Businesses then as Allied Domecq sold them in the 1990s. The Tetley Group was created in July 1995, when a group of investors bought what was then the world-wide beverage business from Allied Domecq. On 10th March 2000, The Tetley Group was sold to Tata Tea Limited, one of the world's largest integrated tea businesses.

This is one of the best decafs I've ever had. It is very flavorful, yet smooth - no bite. The package recommends "squeezing" the bag gently when you first pour the hot water over it and again when you've finished brewing. I found this to be helpful in releasing the flavor. I also found no more than 3 minutes of brewing time produces the most balanced cup. There's a big difference between English Tetley and American Tetley. I hope Teadog continues to carry the English varieties - particularly decaf.
Wish I had ordered another box-or two ! Every time I have a cup, I'm pleasantly surprised. No watery, weak and tasteless brew here! This may be my favorite bagged decaf tea of all time. Strong and smooth, zero harshness. Thanks Teadog !
If you're looking for a decaf tea with the strength of flavor you associate with regular/non-decaf "quality" teas, this should be your choice. I love - and was brought up on - the "tea with milk and sugar" style - Boston Irish! This tea produces a dark and strong "breakfast-style" UK cup of "black tea" that is great any time of day! Enjoy!!!
