I like strong breakfast tea with milk, and I have never come across a better blend than Glengettie. It isn't always easy to find but Lidl stock it these days. Some teas have barely enough in the bag to make a strong brew, but Glengettie have no problems with flavour. (read more)

Glengettie tea is marketed and designed to be drink with the softer welsh water. if you are drinking Glengettie in London then you are not going to enjoy the full flavour, as it will be distorted by limescale. i hope this helps all you who dont understand the magical wonders of Glengettie tea.

Me again (the one being mean about the tea). I just wanted to say I was too harsh on the tea the first time so I wanted to write a nicer review!
Well I have been drinking this tea every day since I bought it (a week ago) and I guess it has grown on me a little bit.
I still stand by my comment that it's certainly not one of my favourite teas and that (for me) it does not have any particularly special taste (hence my earlier comment bland) unlike some other teas where I really do enjoy the... (read more)

I guess I am alone here but I don't get all the fuss of this tea on this review site at all. I tried it (totally unbiased before reading any reviews - I just saw it in tesco and decided to try it)
It's an ok tea, nothing more. I prefer for example twinings traditional english, pj tips, tetley...basically this is one of my LEAST favourites of black teas I have tried to be honest.
I suppose maybe whatever it is that everyone else loves about it could be the thing I dislike about it. It just... (read more)

It's interesting reading the other reviews as my experience is the same. This is an excellent product, and yet the major supermarkets rarely stock it, and if they do, they never promote it, preferring to leave it hidden on a bottom shelf. I've ended up buying it in bulk direct from the manufacturer which is far from convenient. (read more)

I had my first pot of Glengettie loose tea at The Printing House in Solva Pembrokeshire in June of this year.
After telling the host that it was the best tea I had ever tasted, she informed me that I could actually buy it by the packet from her. This I did and also purchased a pack for my daughter.
We have now used more that half of the packs and would like to ask if it can be purchased in Birmingham or any other part of the West Midlands. (read more)

Glengettie Tea has been our favourite tea since we first tried it about 20 years ago. Unfortunately it is impossible to buy where we live on the Isle of Wight so we have to buy up loads whenever we go down to the west country. The other day I rang the customer services number printed on the box and was delighted to discover that they do mail order, I received the order form by return of post. So all you people out there looking for your Glengettie.......ring that number!! The best tea ever! (read more)

We have only recently discovered the joys of drinking Glengettie and, as far as we are concerned, no other brand of tea will ever cross our threshold again. Glengettie is shear perfection and its quality never varies. Other brands do vary quite a lot. One can get different quality brews from the same pack of teabags; sometimes one gets a reasoble cuppa and other times its just like 'maiden's water. This doesn't happen with Glengattie. However, I would like to know why it is such a well kept... (read more)

Recommended for a great relaxing and refeshing drink. First time I've tried it and, I must say, was very impressed with the overall flavour and smoothness. I bought it on a special promotion in a Lidl supermarket in Morecambe, Lancashire, but don't know where to purchase it anywhere else. I remember my mother always buying Rington's tea, delivered direct to the door when I was a small boy, but that was never available in the shops. (read more)

I was introduced to Glengetti tea in 1968 as a soldier in Gloucester and since then, except for war and pestilence have drunk no other.
I drink it without milk or sugar.
It is the most popular tea in Wales, and amazes me, each time I look at a packet to see:

Which I know from reading the other side of the pack to mean:
A favorite in Wales for generations.
Which by the way, the dear people of Wales are only 70miles from my house (read more)

Glengettie Tea is a gem of a tea, refreshing without being weak, and strong enough for 2 bags to be adequate in a pot, but not so strong as to leave a tannin aftertaste. This is the one to brew when you need to put the world to rights, after a terrible day at work, or when a friend needs tea & sympathy. I've been drinking this tea for 5 years, and no other tea comes close to its flavour. Brew develops a caramel-colour liquid with a honey fragrance, fresh and light without milk (perfect for...
