I visited Bettys in Harrogate a while ago and had this. I was very impressed with it, so I bought some to bring home.

The dry leaf scent is not very strong, but has faint notes of peppercorn and fruit. The first few sips are very peppery but the tea becomes more fruity as the tea cools – specifically apples and something that reminds me of ripe cherries. As it cools further, the peppercorn notes disappear and by now, when the tea is room temperature, I can’t taste it at all, just a brisk black tea taste.

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
