4 Tasting Notes


The pop of chilli is very mild in this red tea, but between the ginger, cinnamon, thistle and red peppercorns (very visible in the mix) the rooibos flavour is barely discernable, just a slight undertow of hay and compost. It’s a good tea for a chilly morning; I like to drink it first thing while checking for frost damage in the garden.

A sweet bright tea, the vanilla and chocolate predominate on the nose and soften and smooth the tannins, while the marigold and sunflower add a touch of floral boldness. It is chestnutty in colour rather than bright red; the small amount of beetroot adds only a little earthy complexity to the flavour, and it has a decent caffeine kick. A very pretty brew; glass teaware recommended!

Flavors: Cake, Earth, Flowers, Sweet, Vanilla

Soft chai with a musky undertone, thick brown fermented flavour and spicy, woody notes. High caffeine; an excellent study tea.

Black loose leaf tea with a mid-sized leaf and generous sprinkle of blue cornflowers. Very fresh and clean, with fruit in the mid-mouth and spearmint flavours on the aftertaste. Low tannin; the cup refreshed four times without losing flavour quality, though the intensity faded. A good working afternoon tea.

Flavors: Apricot, Floral, Spearmint

Jeremy Day likes a good cup of tea in the afternoon; drinks black, gold, red, green or any other colour tea; creates comics; has made a tiny teabag-sized comic suitable for dunking and drinking.
