Not a favourite, though it’s alright. Just didn’t seem very flavoursome. I will have to try others to see how they compare.

I didn’t like this tea on it’s own, but I used it as a base for homemade chai and it was really good!

I found the jasmine in this incredibly overpowering and it tastes rather fake. Maybe it will be better iced…

The tea leaves had a delicate fragrance. When dry they almost had a faint hint of chocolate (or maybe I’m just going mad). Anyway, when I brewed this tea, it was refreshingly light and extremely delicate. I will have to tweak the steeping times though, because I don’t think I steeped it for long enough.

Yum! Had this before bed – it’s growing on me so I’m bumping up the rating!

Whew! When they said it was strong, they meant STRONG! I only brewed it for a few minutes, but I still found it unpleasantly brisk, unlike any other kenya I’ve tried.

This tea is fabulous iced but the steeping time is obviously much longer. I found 6 minutes produced the best taste for iced.

Though dark in colour, the taste is suprisingly light. Lovely lemon taste, though I struggled to taste the bergamot.

The first thing I noticed about this tea was its gorgeous deep colour – a bit darker than any other I’ve tried. Lovely with a bit of organic honey.

Profile

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.
