This is what a daily cuppa should be. I actually crave it in the morning! This is coming from someone who is more of a green tea drinker). I’ve been picking it up in the English import section of my supermarket and I am smitten.

Firstly — incredibly cute packaging! I love opening my cupboard to see a sweet little wintry penguin!

But on to the tea itself… This would be a hit if you are the type of person who likes chocolate cake. It is rich without being sugary, and it definitely has the smooth and creamy texture of a black forest cake. It isn’t too rich that you feel sickly, yet it satisfies your sweet tooth. I am not often a fan of “dessert” style teas, but this one is smooth and comforting. Perfect for a snuggly night on the sofa!

This is by leaps and bounds the best green tea (or tea for that matter!) that I have ever had. Fukamushi deep-steamed sencha is absent of bitterness, and this tea has a deep taste of sencha (and the aroma of a good matcha) . Not to mention, what makes it most unique, is that it has a very notable body and “creaminess” to it that you would not find in a green tea. It is incredibly satisfying. Wow. I’ve still yet to find a tea to surpass this. I would recommend it to any avid fans of Japanese sencha.

This is a really delicious tea! It’s a nice, light black tea with a very delicate peach and champagne taste to it. It is a very refined and quintessentially summer tea! I could definitely see this being enjoyed iced, too, on a patio in the hot Summer afternoon. I love how mild the peach is, and the body itself is nothing too robust. Very likely the most refreshing black I’ve had before.

Flavors: Champagne, Peach

I’ve never been more sad about a tea being discontinued. :(

A beautiful English rose garden… that was what it was — both in taste and imagery.
