Gosh I love this tea. I’ve had it twice before and have now taken the plunge and got some for myself. I love the cooked taste to it

I’m disappointed to say I really didn’t like this. It’s not that it’s objectively a horrible tea or anything, but I just don’t really drink sweet hot drinks like hot chocolate or tea with sugar. The smell is powerful and disgusting but the taste is better. Still not really to my taste – I’ll have to see whether any of my friends like it

It’s hardly brilliant. I made a pot of it earlier and was happy with it but it doesn’t compare with the pearl jasmine tea I have at the moment. It does have its advantages though… it comes in a bag!

I have only just got this and don’t have a clue how to brew it, but what I can tell you straight away is that it is a hundred time better than my usual jasmine tea. And I really didn’t think it would be.
I am thoroughly impressed

White tea… I’d try 2.25g of pearls in 6oz of 140-160 degree water for 1-3 min as a starting point.

Is this a white tea? I’ve only ever had Jasmine Pearls with green tea

This is an incredibly tasty oolong, possibly the best oolong I’ve ever had. It’s lovely and subtle, reminds me a bit of a first flush darjeeling in its subtle sweet taste, but then it has the lovely characteristic smoky oolong flavour to it as well. It’s pretty expensive so I’ve only got a taster, but it is absolutely incredible and I will be rebrewing this pot for the rest of the day. What a wonderful day I have ahead!

I was told that this would be a suitable Earl Grey to have either with or without milk and they are quite right. The tea is strong and the bergamot is strong and fresh. It’s a lovely spicy blend that will keep you interested right through the cup. Recommended!

Preparation
Boiling

I got through this entire box without ever feeling the need to blog it. So I guess it must be a bit non-descript. It’s fine for a teabag but nothing special

For the first time in weeks I have got a few hours spare to tidy my room, listen to some music I have bought recently (ska music today) and drink my way through a pot or so of tea. You can’t go wrong with this tea. I left it brewing far longer than I normally would, and it still tastes wonderful. I love afternoons like this, in their understated way

My first impression of this is actually quite good. It’s not really “tea” in my book. It’s an infusion or a tisane or whatever you want to call it and I don’t usually go for those. However, it’s quite pleasant, not disgustingly sweet, and has gone down very well with my housemates. Thanks Ellie!

Bio

I finished being a student in 2008 and began working in The North, where “tea” means “evening meal” which confuses me regularly. I love encouraging people to try new teas, but when I’m not doing that, I play the trombone, play some sport (badly) and socialise
