Another strong and very decent breakfast tea. The addition of safflower petals makes the tea more elegant, and doesn´t only add a floral touch, also a subtle spicey one, as far as I can tell. That might be what Bruu themselves identify as tobacco…
Here I add their description :
What it is? A careful blend of Assam and Kenyan black teas are mixed with a sprinkle of calming Safflower petals to produce a wonderful, full bodied tasting tea with a slight mellow astringency.
Why we love it : Full round bodied taste with yielding a slightly mellow astringency. Picture those mornings when there’s just enough time to pause before the busy day ahead and a peaceful calm surrounds – well that’s the ambience each sip will provide.
Where it’s from : Assam, India, (2nd Flush) & Kericho, Kenya. The multihued nature of the taste of Kericho tea might be explained by the varied soil types which consist of well drained, shallow to extremely deep volcanic types. These factors combine to bring out the easy going vibrancy of Kericho highland teas.
How our drink hits the senses : A very earthy, tobacco, full bodied loose tea which fills the senses instantly.
The taste journey : A reddish brown cup with wholesome full tea notes. Full round bodied taste with yielding a slightly mellow astringency – great with milk. This tea is certainly a high class tea to be savoured and enjoyed.

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).

Location
