This month's subscription box was built around a tea we had our hearts set on featuring - Keemun. This is a tribute to Chinese New Year; an acknowledgement of a major holiday for the country and culture that discovered tea. There are countless Chinese teas we could have chosen, but Keemun is a culture bridge. This is the varietal that the original English Breakfast tea was made of.
From the Keemun we move from tea to tea linking each one by a single flavour component. Keemun's smokiness to the smokiness of Hazelnut Pear's base tea, gunpowder green. Then the creaminess of Hazelnut Pear to the cream of the earl grey. And finally the light and sweet notes of lavender tie the earl grey to Serene.
You can shop these teas in 4 different ways: buy the tasting set or the individual teas above in 10g, 25g or full retail size.
