The mint in this is perfect – tingly, cooling, and slightly sweet, it reaches out and shakes you by the shoulders (in a good way!). It also doesn’t seem to get to the bitter stage, which is usually a problem I have with bagged tea; I can easily leave the bag in while I drink it, though I don’t like to. When it comes to all-nighters or fighting colds, this is my tea of choice.

Before this I was drinking Pukka’s mint green tea, which completely pales in comparison – here, the mint plants itself firmly in front of the tea and makes sure you notice. I would happily choose this over any other British green tea.

I love this tea. The pomegranate is really sweet and uplifting – often I drink white tea but it tastes either bitter or similar to my (very, very weak) black tea sans milk. I steep it for a minute or less, maybe even 30 seconds, because otherwise it gets quite astringent.
