I’ve loved a hot cup of herbal tea ever since I was a child, and the distinctive round teabags of Tetley were always a favourite in my eyes. There is something so deeply satisfying about brewing a cup of tea and sitting down to relax and sip away at it, and Tetley’s incredible selection of flavours made it easy to enjoy a cup of tea anytime.
Now, Tetley has come up with a way to make choosing the perfect tea even easier with the Tetley Colour Therapy website, and I recently got the chance to put the system to the test by using the quiz to select a tea and then sampling the result.
The quiz was so much fun that I actually took it four or five times, purposely entering different information that I thought fit best with some of my most common moods and situations, just to see what the results would be. The quiz contains nine questions and uses a sliding scale to discover your mood and match it with the perfect Tetley tea. Some of the questions dealt with personality and would most likely always be consistent. For example, I always consider myself to be confident and optimistic.
Other questions had answers that would vary depending on certain times and situations. The very first question, in fact, is about the time of day. It’s such a basic question, but really, who wants a caffeinated green tea late at night?
One of the most innovative things about the quiz was the way that the background screen would change as I answered questions, so that I could see for myself what colour would best compliment my mood.
My first attempt at the quiz told me that orange was my colour and Tetley Warmth Tea, a cinnamon tea with orange blossom, sweet liquorice, cardamom and clove, would be perfect to help me relax and indulge in some quality “me” time. The tea sounded scrumptious, and when I received a sample to try for myself, I was definitely impressed. The fragrant cinnamon and other spices were both warming and soothing, and the hint of orange added just the right zing to help make this tea both relaxing and energizing. I love to drink it right after I put the boys to bed, because it helps me release the stress of the day so that I can get busy blogging!
I enjoyed the Tetley Colour Therapy quiz so much that when I learned my best mid-morning tea would be the purple Tetley Clarity Tea, a blend of blueberry with ginseng and gingko, I bought a canister to try out. This tea is the perfect way to get through that mid-morning mental slump and focus on the tasks of the day, and the fabulous fresh blueberry flavour is sensational.
Since I do love tea so much, I expected to love the varieties I tried, and I wasn’t disappointed. But I certainly didn’t expect to enjoy the Tetley Colour Therapy quiz so much. It was a fun and original way to choose a variety of tea that I would love, and reading the results was enough to make me crave a freshly brewed cup. If you love tea and want to find out which variety will suit you best, check out the Tetley Colour Therapy quiz for yourself. It’s quick, easy and so much fun!
