I think this tea will not appeal to everyone, but personally I love it. I like the blend of the smokiness of Lapsang Souchong, the sweetness of caramel and the warm spicy feel of the rest of the ingredients.

I was really curious about this tea, because I had never seen watermelon used as a flavour before. I do think the name is slightly misleading, as I do detect a good and yummy blend of coconut and tropical fruits, but not really the watermelon. That said, I find the tea quite good, naturally sweet and fresh, a perfect summer drink, especially if cold brewed.

This tea is absolute perfection, it’s like a biscuit in a mug. Both the leaves and the infusion smell like freshly baked biscuits, and all the ingredients are balanced masterfully.
I drink it with half a teaspoon of Stevia, and it’s the perfect guilty pleasure, just without guilt!

I spent a long time finding the perfect Earl Grey for my tastes, one with a strong base that would not be overwhelmed by the bergamot flavour. This tea comes very close to ticking all my boxes. The base tastes like a slightly lighter english breakfast, with the added hint of bergamot that appears more like an aftertaste. If the flavouring had been only slightly more prominent, it would have been perfect.

Light tea with a predominant coconut note and scent, the blueberries enhance the flavour but are definitely a secondary note. If brewed correctly, this tea is a well balanced mix of buttery sweet and bitter flavours, but it gets overly bitter even if infused only a few seconds too long. It can be infused twice without losing flavour. I drink it with half a teaspoon of stevia.

Flavors: Berries, Bitter, Butter, Coconut

I love spice and citrus combinations, and I liked the idea of a spiced green tea, so I asked a friend who lives in Paris to buy me this tea. The flavour is pretty good, although I’d have preferred the spices to be slightly more prominent. The main note is without a doubt the citrus, with just a little additional warmth added by the spices. Good, but not one of my favourites.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Spicy

Nice, classic black tea base of medium strength with a strong red fruits flavour. The result is particularly pleasant, as the bitter aftertaste of the red fruits isn’t prominent. I usually drink it with 1 or 2 teaspoons of sugar, depending on the capacity of the cup.

Flavors: Red Fruits, Strawberry

A delicate tea full of well balanced fruity flavours and flowery perfumes. The fruits blend together quite nicely but still they remain distinguishable. The overall result is very sweet, so I tend to use only a little sugar (a little less than 1 tsp) to bring out the flavour.

Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Mango, Peach, Rose

Bio

I’m a law student from northern Italy, I discovered tea thanks to a dear friend. She always invited me at her home in Venice and offered me a different kind of tea every time. I ended up ditching the supermarket teabags in favour of loose leaf. I drink a lot of flavoured teas, but I like pure teas too, especially Darjeeling, Nilgri and Yunnan. I am all in favour of trying new teas and new blends, and I’m in no way a tea purist, experimenting with flavours intrigues me. My other hobbies include knitting, crocheting, jewellery making in a variety of techniques, and reading.
