Still a classic cuppa for the morning. Lovely nuttiness to the finish.

Just bought a new pack of it and you really notice that it is fresher. Maybe it’s a bad idea having 30 types of tea in my cupboard, cos they’ll all get old

Mmm… with toast and Marmite.

Oh, deep and meaningful Assam, how I love your malty sweetness…

And that’s the end of my first flush darjeeling from last year. Just in time to get some this year, I think! It has really been a lovely tea and I have enjoying it very much. It’s a tea that’s worth looking after and trying to make the perfect pot!

Particularly satisfying PuErh flavour. Best on third brew this time using Yixing teapot and boiling water for about 30 seconds.

My lovely wife asked me to brew this last night. Mmmm.

Six large cups on a work night is probably not a good idea, but it’s so more-ish and very easy. I start with half a teaspoon and for each extra cup I add another half dozen or so ‘cannonballs’. Mmm mmm, I hope I can sleep tonight

New delivery from Thiashola, as good as I always remembered it. Fiery, edgy flavour, with a crisp clear flavour, and golden orange cup. Mmm.

This is a really nice light refreshing tea to enjoy. It is quite flexible about how long you steep it and does not require milk. I had two of my largest cups today :-)

This is the best I have made this tea since I started commenting on here. Strange that it is so variable – I think it must jst be very sensitive to brew temperature and time. This was hot water but not boiling (90 degC??) and brewed for 3 mins. And awesome

So much better than whole leaf peppermints I reckon, because you get more punch out of the leaves. Working late, and needed a brain revitaliser.

Two cups. Still a wonderful tea. I’m trying to run it down so I can justify buying some of the Yunnan Gold First Grade Tea from First Class Teas… it sounds incredible

My housemates were keen to have this again. Once you get someone onto a good thing, they don’t like to let it go! And it IS a good thing

Lovely fresh hay nose, sweet leafiness and lingering flavour. Second brew particularly refreshing.
