I've been quoting this commercial for years now subconsciously. "MRS CHEN YOUR GARDENS LOOKING STEEPED"

This commercial is from Tim Horton's classic era before it turned into a greedy American corporation with mediocre coffee and food.

The stepped tea at Tim Hortons is actually higher quality than the specialty tea there which has more varieties although is teabag dust all of it. The stepped tea only has a pekoe and is cheaper than the specialty tea and even though the quality is not supreme it should be worth more as it still has more leaf and the teabags dont use high quality tea anyway. You can get English Breakfast, Green, Earl Grey, orange Pekoe, and chai, a white in some places and a few herbals including a chai in that category and a peppermint and chamomile and apple cinnamon in some places although all of it is cheap tea sold in teabags, or otherwise got additional cheesy flavors in it (Earl Grey and Jasmine if they have it are not cheesy although they are not estate class either, although stuff like Blueberry flavored White Tea and black and herbal teas in some with artificial fruit flavorings like raspberry) The stepped only has orange pekoe although is plain and passable. So the orange pekoe in teabags and the other teas in them literally fall into the specialty category whereas the stepped one is cheaper and falls into the standard category though it is actually better and was suggested to Tim Hortons by a tea specialist so they would have more leaf grades

Still dont get me wrong, its Tim Hortons after all and do not expect to see estate Keemuns, high grown Ceylons or Darjeelings or Lapsang Souchong or Matcha or stuff like Dragonwell or Oolongs or Puerhs there. You will only likely get blends at best. For better results go to a tea store (not Davids) or look online

I just saw the following comment on Threadless and wondered if he just saw this commercial.
"I live in Russia in a military town and was surprised when I received a gift of this jersey. Steep design! Keep it up!"

i remember back in school the teacher said she thought these commercials were funny and i just blurted out they were annoying then she just had the most pissed off look on her face at me LOL

Yeah, but when this commercial was airing, Timmies marked steeped tea as "different" from regular tea.

Calling it steeped tea is like saying you drink liquid water.

Because TV Tropes

I think the most disturbing part, aside from making the assumption that this shitty tea is the only tea ever to have hot water poured over it, is that apparently its made by jamming a shit-load of it into a drip-brew coffee maker.

It's an intentional mistake on the behalf of the writers; the point of the video is that the woman thought that when her son was telling her the tea was "steeped, " he was using some slang term, where in fact he was referring to one of the processes of making tea - steeping it.
