For lovers of Ty-phoo.
West Ealing Iceland has Ty-phoo teabags (full strength), 300 pack, £3.00. Dated 'use by 2020'. Presumably a national offer.
One penny per teabag, hits the sweet spot for me.

Ooooh im off to iceland . Great deal.
Great deal, heat added. Why so cold???? 1p/bag is a great deal especially for full strength!
On their website as £3, so should be national. Offer price - normally £3.50, save 50p.
Been at this price for ages. OP why did it take so long to discover them.
worst teabags I've ever tasted!
You only get an oo with typhoo :D, thanks op I need to get some today
Thanks OP My favourite Cuppa NOT to be confused with the one cup bags which are Mince.

Scousekevin, I agree that Ty-phoo 'one cup' teabags are not great. But using two in one cup does go to make a half decent cup of tea. As Confucius once said, "Two one-cup bags is better than no brew at all."
One penny per teabag.

Pence is the plural of penny.

What's the difference between One Cup and Full strength tea bags



Very good question.

Some folk feel that the actual blend of the tea is different between Ty-phoo 'One Cup' and Ty-phoo normal strength teabags. Others believe that the same blend of tea is used in both types of teabag, just that the 'One Cup' bag contains less tea. Whatever the reality, it's true to say the 'One Cup' bag does contain less tea compared to the normal strength teabag: 'One Cup' bag weighs 2g. Normal strength bag weighs 4g.

Thank you!

In the interests of science and the furtherment of the aims of the SGPTD (Society of Getting Pleasure from Tea Drinking), I have just blown 1.5p by sacrificing two Ty-phoo teabags, one a 'normal strength' bag, the other a 'one cup' variety. They are both of similar vintage and well inside their 'use by' date. By cutting the teabags open and inspecting their respective contents, I can confirm that the tea inside each bag is a subtly different colour from each other (the 'normal strength' tea being darker and less brown compared to the 'one cup' variety). And I noticed that the 'one cup' tea is cut slightly finer. Also confirmed, the volume of tea in the 'normal strength' bag is approx twice that compared to that from the 'one cup' teabag.

Verdict: I assume the colour difference, and fineness of cut, indicates that the tea blends are different between 'one cup' and 'normal strength' Ty-phoo teabags. (All financial donations gratefully received to reimburse me for my financial loss. Thank you.)

Well with this new information in mind, I'm going to buy another 4 boxes or maybe even 5 if the sell by date allows.
it seems like a great bargain to me.
I get loads of pleasure from drinking tea, much so then any other drink. I'm going to Google SGPTD and see if I can join!

What I particularly like about boxed Ty-phoo teabags is that the teabags are supplied in airtight, sealed foil packages, each containing 50 teabags (with several foil packages in the one large cardboard box). It's important to keep dried tea, er, dry. And airtight. Until it's needed to make the drink.
