At Tetley we don't make tea for anyone else

< Previous | Next >
As usual, I bought Tetley at the supermarket, and found something interesting on the bag of Tetley tea.

They say : Return bag and contents if inner seal is broken. / At Tetley we don't make tea for anyone else. / Remember only boil as much water as you need.

The thing is they've already made and sold their tea for everybody. I think they should say, At Tetley we make tea for everyone. Am I wrong?

    The point of the sentence is that Tetley are claiming that their tea is only sold as Tetley tea.
    They do not make tea for any of the big supermarket chains (Tesco, Sainsburys, Marks and Spencer, etc) to sell as their own brand.
