A nice, round, satisfying tea. It’s nothing enormously special, but it does the job. My standard everyday teas are usually cheap – something that’s hot to comfort the mind, and little more than that. Thankfully this tea isn’t quite so.

This brand has a good flavour, brews decently (seems to lose a lot of strength in a tea-pot though, I often find myself using way more bags than expected just to get the strength my and my partner enjoy). Perfect for a quick cuppa, lovely with a bit of milk and the occasional sugar. Especially good with just a dollop of lemon juice added, nothing more.

This is quite a delicate tea. The pomegranate in it is very minimal, not always noticeable, but quite nice nonetheless. I only ever steep it for a minute or less; too long seems to ruin the flavour a little, making it a bit too sweet.

This will probably become a spring-time tea for me, personally. The lightness of it would wonderfully suit a cool morning – this is a tea for relaxing, not for chugging. ♥

One of my staple teas, I try to always have it in my cupboard. I’ve noticed that some other peppermint teas from different brands can leave a rather bitter after-taste – not this one I find. Even when let to brew for some time (aka, forgetting about it!) it still retains it’s relatively light flavour.

Also my favourite tea for when I’m feeling under the weather; I was always given mints or told to brush my teeth when I was younger to help calm my stomach, peppermint really seems to help.
