A tea that is truly inspiring. Forget your fancy, sugar coated bits in your flavoured tea, I’m going au natural and getting my groove on with carrot, sweetcorn and peas. Fo sho!

In raw form this blend smells like sweet and juicy peach with a slight hint of citrus lemongrass. So very delicious, not usually a peach person but this smells beautiful.

Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with the same juicy peach scent as it’s raw form. If I was told this tea contained peas, sweetcorn and carrot I would not believe it, it’s not in the scent nor in the taste. But the fact that it does contain three unusual ingredients makes it that more special.

Flavour is very peachy and sweet with high citrus tones and something dark and green which I assume to be the green tea base. So it’s sweet and fruity with green, refreshing tones and a citrus kick. All in all it’s a nice blend, something that would make wonderful iced tea.

Much nicer than I was expecting. ZOMG MOTH ATTACK!!!! I hate moths and anything that flies in my face, one just came through the window next to me and made me scream, almost losing my tea :( Damn you moth, go back to mothland shakes fist As I was saying I was not expecting this to be nice or not so nice, just different. Also re steeps very well.

Stupid moths. When I was a couple sentences up, I saw MOTH at the side of my eye and was expecting you to mention that all of a sudden, it tasted like mothballs haha.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
