drank Christmas Tea by Fortnum & Mason

I found this to be completely undrinkable and threw out the tea (though not the tin) after the first cup. Flavours all over the place, very little to like, really.

I know it’s supposed to be an experimental, ‘fun’ blend, but it was definitely not for me.

Beautiful tin, though.

drank Mango Sunrise by Yumchaa

A personal favourite. Comes together very nicely if you go for a shorter steep time (2-3 minutes), which allows some more subtle flavours. A longer steep brews far stronger, but also gives an overpowering mango taste.

Yumchaa recommend pouring a little cold water on the leaves beforehand, which seems to work well. Also found that this tea attracts a metallic taste if the water is boiled in certain kettles, so watch out for that, if it tastes metallic on the teeth.

Great tea!
