This is stunning Oolong tea from the North of Thailand. It is a bold, fresh, deep tea. This region really produces fine organic tea and this is a great example of how impressive it can be. A fantastic, well balanced Oolong.

Well balanced, not overpowering, just as it should be. No milk required. Pleasant drop.

Fresh, invigorating, a great pick-me-up tea. Recommended also for helping to avoid on-coming colds.

My favorite wake-up cuppa. Beautiful honey notes compliment a strong and full flavor black tea. Go without milk and sugar – it’s just fine on its own.

I thought this one from Gryphon was very nice. Clean, tight flavour and a good afternoon tea for sure. Nice one !

This is a truly exceptional blend, and currently my absolute favourite. The balance between the leaves, rose petals, and lychees is superb. Enjoy this tea at any time of the day (although I would prefer others late at night). Do yourself a big favour and try this one. ** Strange thing is that whilst I procured this in Singapore, the packaging has Russian writing all over it. It is distributed by Unilever, so I guess there is a reason for it.

Whilst this drop is enjoyable I think it’s unremarkable. I agree that competing herbs seem to dull the effect of each other. Perhaps the ratio could be adjusted by Gryphon.

A very elegant and relaxing tea indeed. Perfect for late evening. Not overpowering, beautiful leaf blend, and a sophisticated drop to the last.

My recent DNA test revealed strong traces of Lapsang Souchong, my Mum’s favourite blend all her life. Currently living in Singapore, I am enjoying the abundant availability of fresh teas from the region. Huge fan of white teas, and red wines ;-)
