My local Whittard of Chelsea brought this out yesterday while I was in there, so I got a pouch to try. The dry leaf scent on this is very strong and ery sweet – like sticky toffee pudding, actually! Unfortunately, this doesn’t translate to the steeped aroma and it just smells like plain black tea. Hot, this doesn’t really taste like much, just black tea with the slightest hint of caramel nuttiness.

But iced, this is AWESOME! So good! It is a very sweet tea without additions and cold I can definitely taste the caramel/toffee part of this. I just brewed up a gallon and can’t wait to get started!

Gosh, that sounds interesting. I’ll have to try and remember this the next time I’m in the UK. I’ve only been moderately pleased with Whittards, but I’ve definitely had worse in my life so they’ve managed to hold my interest to a certain degree. (If I recall correctly, they do a pretty awesome strawberry black as well.)

I agree, their strawberry black is pretty good. They have brought out some new teas recently, and I do think they are a better quality than their previous teas.

Their english rose was defintiely a load of tosh, so if they can top that, that’s good enough for me. :D Come to think of it, the boyfriend is going to Suffolk in a couple of weeks, most likely. Maybe I should send a shopping list with him just in case he happens to get the opportunity. (On the other hand he’ll probably just remind me that we have so much tea at the moment that I ran out of tins…)

Bio

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
