Recent Tasting Notes
Bought at a T J Maxx along with my new green tea pot. Was surprised at the round little bags that held the tea – it turned out that this was a great idea; more surface area and no annoying strings or tags!
When I made it, I forgot that I had left the bag in and ended up letting it steep for over twenty minutes. Worrying about bitterness, I took a drink – and was astonished at the absolutely sumptuous taste of the tea. I felt no desire to add any sugar to it, and I sipped it all night, and when I found I had had enough left over to drink the next day, I took it out of the house, luke warm, and nursed off of it eagerly.
The flavor is rich, the smell is exquisite, and the color is absolutely dark, rich, and beautiful. If not for the fact that it’s not regularily stocked in my local grocery store, I would love to keep this always in my pantry.
I love this tea! It’s a great tasting black tea meant for any time drinking. I brewed it rather strong & it was fine. I even left it sitting on the teawarmer with the teabags still in the pot & it didn’t get bitter. It only got better.
Definitely a great tea to keep on hand for when you are in a hurry & don’t feel like measuring out tea leaves or cleaning up a mess.
A review of The London Cuppa by The London Cuppa
I am very happy to still have a few tea bags of this tea remaining. I have yet to visit British Delights to obtain more.
I always turn to this tea when doing chores around the house. I should call this my house chores cup of tea.
I boil water very hot, piping hot in fact and having placed one tea bag in my mug, I pour the hot water into the cup. I leave it to steep for five minutes, longer yet since I am cleaning. After some time passes, I take my tea to sip as I go around doing things. It is hot and a dark amber in color. The tea is very malty and smooth, making for a round-bodied cup of tea.
This tea is great for standing on own or with milk and sugar but always have it piping hot. I am grateful, thank you!
A review: The London Cuppa by The London Cuppa Ltd.
I brew this tea for three minutes and allow for the bag (round disc with no string) to remain in cup as this makes it easier to simply keep adding water to it and in time to replacing the bag with another.
This cuppa is robust, deep and rich in flavor. I never need to add anything to it. I like the robustness in the cup and I can drink this through out the day as I do my chores etc. around the house.
One thing to note in making this tea; it does cloud over at times when pouring the water into the cup unto the bag. I am not sure why that is? I am thinking it is because water is not hot enough and when I let it boil longer and clearer, and then pour some over the tea bag there is not clouding.
I cannot believe I still have some of this tea left. It was a good purchase made last year, from British Delight.
For a great Cuppa, pour fresh boiling water onto a tea bag in the cup. Allow cuppa to stand for 2-3 minutes, which will reveal true flavor of the cuppa. Alternatively, if you are making a brew using a teapot allow one tea bag per cuppa. Allow pot to stand for 3-4 minutes, gently stir pouring the brew.
I decided to fix myself a cup of the London Cuppa since I have not had it in a while. I still have a few of those round sachets left. Using my new tea mug I placed one tea bag in a cup and poured fresh boiling water onto the bag in the cup. Allowing it to brew for between 2-3 minutes.
I am pleased to say this was a good choice in starting my day. The cup is a nice and hot tea brew. A lovely dark malt color and smelling of mild roasted brew. The taste is robust, deep and very rich, malt is all I can think to say of the flavoring in the cup.
I always turn to this tea when needing to be a bit firmer in the spirit. Mine is so low. unfortunately this cup did not do it.
Nothing wrong with the cuppa but the tea drinker. It is all that it claims to be:
robust, deep, rich flavor which is ideal to enjoy all day, everyday. Once blended, it’s packed to maintain freshness.
I am just giving up; no need to other wise.
I find myself always returning to The London Cuppa, if not having green tea. It is quite a contrast because it has none of that leafy astringent taste as offered by some green teas.
This is robust, smoky in flavor, the nose perks noting a different texture, richness even in the cup making for fitness in the daily activities abound or do I mean needing to get done.
Yes, The London Cuppa is my cup of contrast when deviating from those of leafy, medicinal notes. A bit harsh in the phrasing? Maybe.
Always seeming to return to this London Cuppa when wanting something for breakfast but not English or Irish Breakfast cup of tea. I am out of those.
The notes in the cuppa erases the gaps. It is smoky in flavor and a full bodied robust brew helping me with my daily activities which at times are inactive and the freshness in the cup reminds me to get moving, get it done even.
A well blended robust, deep, rich flavor which is ideal for my busy morning of doing house chores. I would sip and clean; and return to sip some more. I am thinking this London Cuppa is sort of like English Breakfast tea is what comes to mind.
Freshness is maintained as claimed once packed.
This is a blend of Assam and Kenyan teas which come in a round tea bag, but don’t let this fool you into believing that they will taste like Tetley’s (no offence to the Tetley drinkers, I once heavily enjoyed their green tea!). This tea really surprised me. When I drank the Yorkshire Tea from ToH, I remember saying that it was the smoothest I have drank. Well London Cuppa resepctfully disagrees with that statement. Not only is it velvety, it is also slightly creamier than other teas I have drank. I have to try it without sugar next time, but I think I’m sensing some notes of honey, and that might be part of what makes this tea so full bodied and rich in texture. Also it has less of that wood/straw characteristic that the Yorkshire Tea has, but has a slight touch of briskness to it.
Thanks Ruth!!! :)
This doesn’t have a scent but I really must point out that it steeps/infuses VERY quickly but it also is very forgiving. I think I infused for about 6 minutes. It has a nice flat Medium Strength Black Tea taste. No aftertaste. A great go-to or stand-by cuppa!
Soooooo glad I got to try this!!! :)
For some reason this tea and I did not get along today! Perhaps it was because it was in the presence of such masterful teas as Golden Monkey and Hao Ya A. This is made DAILY at my house by one of my daughters, but I almost never drink it. I have seen it referred to as a premium tea in a review on a certain website that sells everything under the sun, but it isn’t premium in the way that Harnye’s Golden Monkey is premium.
I hadn’t had this one in a long time, but my middle daughter swears she can’t get through Algebra without it. She makes a pot every morning, and since I gave them a snow day today (first one ever, homeschool mommies are brutal but we know they have to make it up on a beautiful spring day!) we decided to all share teas. I had a small cup of this. It is similar in some ways to Harney and Sons Supreme Breakfast. The assam is distinctive in there, and the Kenya is decent. Not a bad cuppa! This was bagged as we have been unable to find loose lately.
This is not a bad tea. This is one of the first loose leaf teas I bought since we don’t have any real tea shops around here. I bought mine at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. As a first loose leaf tea, I really liked it. It is a good morning cup, not exactly full of nuance but serviceable. My 16 year old has to have a 22 oz. pot by her side to do her algebra each morning and prefers this one to my more expensive, more complex teas. It comes in tea bags, too, but we prefer the loose leaf. It is a small particle size, so don’t steep it too long!
