No, I don’t have enough tea in my cupboard, certainly not… (irony over)

I needed this tea for two reasons: a) Fairtrade, organic tea b) easydrinking simple black tea without flavours. Blends are nice and loose leaf is sometimes bit too time consuming, weighing amount of leaf and so on… so on…

And one more thing. It is individually wrapped and I have new tea bag to my collection, though it seems it isn’t anything new. But it will find its customers during exchanges :)

This tea I had in the afternoon, after draining lectures and honestly I am impressed! I let it steep for long 4 minutes, but it wasn’t bitter at all. It had got bold and strong tannic flavour, round and hints of florals. Certainly the long steep (I had to do few other things) wasn’t good for the florals, so I will need to re-try this tea. But overall it was good tea for that simple tea bag. Trying to rate differently between loose leaf and tea bags, so that’s the reason for, quite high rating!

Their website seems to offer much more than teas; maybe check them out for upcoming holidays?
