This was an incredible surprise. I hadn’t tried a smoky-minty combination before, but it was perfect. A real fireside tea for a wintry night (even though Christmas is midsummer here). I wasn’t previous a fan of mint teas except when Morroccan-style (fresh leaves, quite sweet) but I will actively be seeking this combination out in future. It would probably be great as campfire/outdoor/billy tea.

PSA*** the international version of this tea is NOT the same as the UK version. I will rate based on the UK version.
An excellent, strong, rich, full-bodied tea. There’s a reason it has become the UK’s most popular tea. There are many UK sites that sell it. You don’t need to steep this for very long to get a truly excellent cup of tea. I would definitely take this tea with milk.
NB The version sold in Australia (and likely elsewhere) is packed in the UAE from an entirely different blend of black teas. The company is quite transparent about this – they’ve claimed “regional tastes” and also environmental issues re transporting African tea to the UK then to Australia. Whatever the reason, it sadly results in an inferior and much weaker tea than the original.
Flavors: Malt, Round, Tea
This always seems like it should be a full-on pure green tea, from the name, but it’s a total strawberry pudding. With milk it’s a bit like a strawberry blancmange, it’s also great with honey/sugar or just plain. If you’re green tea averse or find green teas bitter, give this a go.
