This was my first drink of the day yesterday. I always start the day with either a Yerba Mate or a black tea as I’m definitely not a morning person! As it was a Saturday and there was no rushing about getting ready for work, I made this in my teapot and took it back to bed, sipping on it while I finished the book I was reading.

In the packet, this smells so creamy! Given the name of it, this shouldn’t surprise me, but I guess I’m not used to a tea smelling of cream. I get wafts of the Yerba Mate, nothing of the liquorice, but an abundance of cream. It reminds me of the original Bailey’s drink. It tastes less creamy than it smells, (more like evaporated milk now) and the Yerba Mate is a lot stronger, but it has this seriously smooth, creamy edge to it that is simply gorgeous! The liquorice was still absent during my first cup of this, but it popped up in my refill and was there as a slight aftertaste.

Overall, I love this tea. It’s the second time I’ve tried it and I probably have another cup’s worth left in my sample pack, so I’ll definitely be placing an order for more of this. I’m still working my way through the samples I ordered from Hebden Teas and there are a few more I’ll be adding to my basket when I order again, along with this one.

Flavors: Creamy

Hi, my name is Amy and I live in Rotherham, in the UK.

I grew up drinking tea (my mother was addicted – she didn’t leave the house in the morning unless she’d had at least three cups!), though it was strictly your basic, everyday brew we enjoyed; huge boxes of teabags stocked up on every week.

Having dabbled with loose leaf teas in my twenties, I confess to being somewhat underwhelmed. Though, of course, my uneducated tea-brain wasn’t aware of brewing temperatures, steeping times and suchlike back then.

Now in my thirties, I’m rediscovering the delight of tea and enjoying the journey. My taste buds are expanding on a daily basis and I’m grasping more and more about the art of tea. I’m still a tea novice, with much to learn and appreciate, but I’m adoring the ride and looking forward to widening my tea collection.

I also enjoy reading, cross-stitch, knitting, gardening, my allotment plot and television.
