Recent Tasting Notes


Aroma: Fresh hay, a little grassy and a sweet, slight fruity element.

Flavour: The first few sips are fruity, like warm freshly squeezed grape nectar, with slow steady hints of cherry. It’s sweet, gentle and fulfilling.

Final Thoughts: Himalayan first flush is totally elegant; both tea and packaging have that type of class that comes with good champagne. Obviously, such an exclusive and complex tea is going to come with a price tag that exceeds the usual. However, this beautifully flavoursome and light tea is worth every penny. Recognition for exquisite Nepalese teas like this one is on the rise, and it’s great that Tea in the City has sourced and stocked it in advance of that trend. I love the company for this, all of their teas are special, so even if this one doesn’t tickle your taste buds, the company is still worth checking out for their other premium teas.

Flavors: Drying, Floral, Fruity, White Grapes

Cranberry leaves processed in the same way tea!

Aroma: An odd mix of slightly fruity and slightly earthy notes.

Flavour: Blatant fruity, almost tart taste, that combines with light peppered and floral notes. The finish contains small hints of the malty flavour familiar to black tea, giving a final layer of depth and an implausible complexity that makes it hard to believe this is a caffeine free herbal tea.

Final Thoughts: I was completely and utterly blown away by the intricacy and exclusivity of this tea, and the effort Tea in the City obviously put into sourcing and presenting such a unique product to the English market. For those suffering the “all appearance and no substance” problem, which Tea in the City suggests is common for those seeking a good herbal brew, this tea seems to be the answer, offering depth in flavour that’s actually unbelievably satisfying.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Malt, Pepper, Stonefruit

drank Georgian Black by Tea In the City

I just received this tea in the mail yesterday. I’m always searching for interesting black teas that are new to me, and this one didn’t disappoint! Originating from Georgia, it’s mild and yet uniquely aromatic. I like to take this one with a bit of sugar. After this experience, I’m quite excited to try more teas from Tea in the City!
