This was one of the free samples I recieved in my latest order.

Since they were kind enough to ship to Canada FREE with their last promo (I wasn’t sure if it was UK only), I feel I should make sure I review their teas (honestly of course) here and on their site to help spread the word. They made my day. :)

Anyway this was a tea that I frankly wasn’t too excited about. I like some chai’s but don’t go out of my way to get them (aside from Pumpkin in the fall!). This one was really good! I need to get past my biases or whatever it is as I miss out on teas that I end up enjoying!

There is a nice smooth Assam base that I can taste lurking below the blended flavours. It has the nice chai spices that you would expect, but the coconut steals the show with the strong flavouring and the creamy mouthfeel it provides.

Would I make an order for this? Possibly. It was really well done. I’d recommend it to others too.

Glad we made you day! It was a bit of an accident on my part to be honest but when I realised I thought I’d go with it! – In future I might knock off the cost of domestic shipping to make it super cheap to keep it fair…

That makes sense! I think if you even offered a discount for international customers when you do free shipping for the UK that people would still jump for that. (Speaking as someone who did just that when Andrews & Dunham had $5 shipping for one day only).

I really love your company and the adorable bluebird branding/packaging. I wish I could do more to support you but it’s harder with an ocean between us. :P I did leave reviews on your site though since I appreciated the free shipping.

Thanks very much. Canada is a place that we both love, and had every intention to be living in (we came home to start Bluebird as visas don’t let you start a new business out there), so it makes us very happy when we get to send orders out there!

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
