When examining my Yumchaa purchase options, this one really struck me with how delicious it smelled and how lovely it looked. While in London I was staying in Notting Hill, so it was a good enough excuse to pick this up. I finally got around to trying it this morning thanks to a pre-set Breville before work.
I was a little worried as when I opened the bag it wasn’t as fragrant as I remember. But, it is very flavourful! The black base brewed up very dark and while it was nice and full it was quite mild. No bitterness, little astringency. Again I’m happy with Yumchaa’s tea bases. The apricot and strawberry were there loud and clear. Sweet but tart, and the flavours tasted very natural as if I’d squeezed an apricot and a few berries into the cup.
