Really rich scent and flavour. This tea definitely deserves ordering and tasting :) My attention was immediately captivated by the design of the packaging and especially the tin (caddy). The tin has a tight cap and a lid which gives confidence that tea will last longer and oxidise less! The weight (I ordered 30g) is written by hand which makes it super special and original. And by the way, the tin actually looks really good, would be interesting to see some experimentation of other designs in the future!

Okay, the tea itself! Very rich and hazelnutty (toasted), I did not use much water as per recommendation, so I could re-brew it a couple of times and it still tasted just as strong!

Flavors: Hazelnut

Thank you so much Viktoras, greatly appreciated! We will probably not consider re-designing tins soon as we have designed it especially to ensure the optimal storage conditions, but the feedback is hugely appreciated! Yulia X

This is an excellent tea.

The rinsed leaf aroma is fascinating, exceptionally complex, rich, powerful and enchanting. Truly a delight that I’ve seldom experienced. My notes at the time include “char roasted protein”

The flavour is sophisticated: malty, fresh, clean and clear. I quick steeped the first two and then long steeped. The tea can handle either way and did not show a trace of over-brewed astringency.

A high class tea indeed and I’ll be ordering more.
