I did not get on too well with this tea.

Initially, the teabag smells malty and brisk with a sweetness that reminds of me sticky ginger loaf cake. But that’s gone by the time you’ve brewed it and there’s nothing left but a generic, plain black tea aroma.

Slightly malty and brisk, but mostly just tannins.

The flavour was unbelievably bitter with a weird sweetness sweeping in at the last second as you swallow. That sweet bitter combination reminds of orange pith. And the body of the tea is quite light and watery too, I found.

Definitely one to drink with milk and honey!


Flavors: Bitter, Ginger, Malt, Sweet, Tannin

Yep, way too simple cuppa!

A British tea lover with the crazy idea that she can review every possible tea. Ever. Check out my blog to see my progress so far…

My all-time favourite tea brands that I go back to for a cup of comfort:
Whittard of Chelsea
English Tea Shop

I rate teas on a spreadsheet, giving marks out of 10 for:
Condition of the tea leaves/ingredients,
Quality of ingredients (e.g. artificial flavours or freshly dried fruit?),
Dry aroma,
Wet aroma,
Sensation (how does it make me feel?),
and Colour.
Then, with a little head scratching, I do the math and work out the score out of 100.

Open to tea swaps – even internationally!
