In Tea Reviews I will give you a few details of the tea, an overall rating, and some thoughts. If you see something you like, I encourage you to go and try the tea yourself! I'll often try and let you know where you can buy it or provide a link.
(Psst! If you want me to review a specific tea, just comment and let me know! If you can provide a sample, that would be great too!)
Initial Thoughts: This tea smells really good. According to the website, it has 'apricot and peach flavours and a grapefruit bite' which really comes through in the scent. However, it does not taste the way it smells. It's a bit odd.
Taste: A little strange if you've spent time inhaling the aroma of this one. It has the familiar black tea flavour, but with a slightly bitter flavour over the top - almost metallic, at times. I can see why people would be drawn to this - particularly if the scent is anything to go by - but I am not a fan so far.
Colour: A rich copper-red.
Recommendations and thoughts: While the instructions for this one only say to give it 2 or 3 minutes brewing time, I might try out a longer brewing time in future, to see if the peach and apricot flavours will come through. I think this would make for a good afternoon drink, provided you had some sweet biscuits to have with it.
Price: This one clocks in at $13.50 for 100g at the time of writing.
Next time... I will be moving on to the teas I mentioned previously from Brew Tea, as we are almost out and I will probably cry after that. 'til next time! :)
