I am having a really bad day and have turned to my tea cupboard for solace. Last night my friend and I made our first proper visit to David’s Tea and I bought four different flavours along with some bags (as all of my infusers are back in the UK!). So I thought Stormy Night would be comforting during my, er, stormy day, and brewed some up. I’d read that some people find it really weak, so steeped the tea for the maximum recommended six minutes just off boiling point and added a splash of milk.
Given the negativity of some reviews, I was surprised – this is like a warm hug when all your family and your boyfriend are four thousand miles away and you’re feeling low, exactly what I needed! I still might have brewed it even longer, but I can still taste a divine combination of cinnamon, coconut and chocolate which rolls silkily over the tongue. Its best feature, after the gorgeous smell, is the aftertaste, with the sweetness of the chocolate and tingle of cinnamon most prominent after each sip.
Definitely good for comfort or warming up on a grey day.
