This tea is surprisingly good. It’s a cheaper one from the aisle of just your typical Aussie supermarket so it makes it a very good value tea. The brew is bright orange and very attractive with or without milk. The fragrance is grassy and bright which is really refreshing. The flavour is strong but not bitter nor malty, which is sometimes a good change. I first had this on a Qantas flight and was very surprised to find out it was just a usual run-of-the-mill tea!
I’ve always love tea, but this is the one that started a passion. It is not as spicy as many other Chai tea’s I have tried in the past but it is still very traditional and is my absolute perfect cup of tea. In my opinion it has the perfect balance of spices and its all due to the fabulous black tea that is used as the foundation.
I actually had the opportunity to visit the plantation in Australia and it was a life changing experience to see all the work that goes into my little bag of tea. It is organic and perfect in different tea combinations depending on your mood and how you enjoy your tea – hot water, sugar, honey, milk, vanilla soy milk, etc. I only have one more tea bag left and I’m saving it for a very special day, or until I get my hands on some more (might have to just order it online) :]
After a week with almost no internet access, it’s great to be back!
So, I find myself in my back yard, in the light rain, sitting next to an open fire, making a billy of tea.
Into the billy with the water, and when it’s near boiling, I toss the tea in.
After it boils, i took it off and had a taste. Black and savoury, as to be expected.
But then, I did what you should always do when camping (even if it’s only pretend) and thats to add a decent glug of sweetened condensed milk.
Warming sweet breakfast bliss with some damper.
Ok, so now I have made this five times. I think I have it right. Incredibly quick steep time is the key.
So, the story here is that I have patriotically chosen to invest in another Australian Tea. This is my second of the three tea companies in Australia … and it’s disapointing.
It’s a blend of Australian and Imported teas.
I actually can’t work out where the rest of it is from. There’s an Indian hint here and there in the taste, not so sure if I can pick up chinese or even kenyan.
Colour-wise, it looks like the Aussie-grown Daintree that I love, taste-wise, it’s just tea,
If it was in a tea-bag, it would be at the upper end, but as a loose leaf tea – a CTC one at that – it’s all tannin and tar.
I’ll probably use up the box and never buy it again.
I got a sample of this tea (loose leaf) when I visited the Nerada plantation on my trip to Australia, and now that I went home and actually tried it, I wish I had bought some. I’m usually not much for straight black tea, but this is unlike any I’ve ever had. Not bitter at all, and very aromatic. Perfect with just a little vanilla soymilk. I might have to snag some more off of an import foods website…
