I think this is going to become a regular in my tea cupboard: it tastes far, far better than I was expecting considering how affordable it is (cost me £5 for a 200g jar).

This tea is very pretty. The dry leaves are adorable little curly things, the tea itself is a nice yellow-green colour, and it comes in a pretty glass jar :) I never have enough containers to keep all my tea in, so this is a plus for me. Definitely the sort of tea you want to use a glass pot for.

When I brewed the tea, the first thing I noticed was that this tea has a bit of the same ‘fish’ taste that you get in dragonwell, and this dominates the smell of the tea. I really like dragonwell, so this is a big plus for me. Overall the tea has a very smooth taste, with very little bitterness and a hint of sweetness towards the end of the sip.

Bio

I’m Kat. When I was eleven I decided I wanted to drink green tea, and that’s where it all began :)

I work part-time in a conference centre, I just graduated from university and I miss working in a tea bar so, so much.

I will drink pretty much anything except rooibos, and I have a cupboard full of tea to prove it. I’ve been known to convert people to tea, my boyfriend is hooked on Yunnan blacks at the moment and I’ve just got my dad started on pu-erh :)

Favourite teas are Japanese greens, ‘green’ oolongs, Darjeelings, Earl Grey and citrus-flavoured greens.

One day, I will have my own tea shop.
