the jasmine is flavourful but the green tea part is overly strong; perhaps i should have steeped it less than three minutes. i do love the scent of jasmine that meets my nose as i lift the mug to my lips.

i haven’t had this tea in years. i always loved it. it’s a very spicy tea. on cold winter days like this one, it offers comfort. i like to drink it with milk & sugar. i find during my period when my stomach is all crampy, this tea is very soothing.

maybe could do with a bit less of a steep. i usually steep the loose leaf lapsang souchong for 6 minutes, but this bag version seems to have just a bit of a bitter aftertaste. i haven’t tried the loose leaf variety of ToH’s LS; however this comes across as a bit gentler, less smoky than over leafed versions of said tea. still, it’s very tasty & on a cold end of january morning like this one, it’s a good pick me up. i can imagine the crackling fire.

given to me by a dear friend, this tea is a lovely lemongrass variety with a good gingery flavour. steeping it 7 minutes is great, brings out the hint of orange in the flavour as well.

this tea is so great to soothe the stomach & appease troublesome sinuses. this time i added a bit of honey to ease a throat that’s a wee bit sore. it’s a go to comfort tea for sure.

gifted by a fellow tea lover. whilst i’m not big on fruity teas, this one has a lot of flavour. the cinnamon isn’t very cinnamony, but i love the idea of this combo.

tastes mostly like a standard black tea but its finish is more complex, a higher note, a bit sharp. perhaps fruity.

gifted to me by a friend. i steeped it for four minutes, added a brown sugar cube & a wee dollop of milk. it isn’t as strong as Irish Breakfast, but its flavour has more complexity than English Breakfast. there are some light finishing notes. do i detect the taste of whisky? could be my imagination. a delicious tea to savour & enjoy.

gifted to me by a kind friend who knows i like different varieties of tea, this tea is surprisingly delicious, uplifting with a hint of spice. mirabelle is apparently a small yellow plum. the tea comes from Poland. it’s probably one of the nicest, more complex fruit teas that i’ve ever had. i’d like to take this taste & wrap it in chocolate.
