This is a very nice tea my boyfriend brought back from England and unfortunately we do not know a lot about it…

It’s a really nice blend of black teas, not smoky at all like some Russian Caravans and not flavored like some of Kusmi’s. There is definitely some assam in here as well as some keemum perhaps. It isn’t really smoky but there might be a slight aftertaste of tobacco and pepper. A very thick and full-bodied tea, perfect for breakfast time. I will see if I can find something similar elsewhere since I really liked this!

sorry I don’t swap with people overseas as international shipping is $4 and up & especially as the last person I swapped with in England seems to have disappeared from Steepster and I never got their package.

Maisonlula

oh goodness!!! well.. I can send it to you nevertheless.. :)

Could it be this place? http://www.covent-garden.co.uk/SITES/theteahouse/
They do mail order… and special blends. Wish I was there, but I’m about 5K air miles away.

TeaBrat

yes, I am fairly certain that was the place.

Barb

Go for it — or send the boyfriend back and make sure he buys more next time!

TeaBrat

I’m not really that anxious to have more…

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
