New teas added from February's subscription box!

Feb 19, 2015


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. 

    • Keemun is a lightly smoky, rich & bold, yet smooth with a subtle rose essence. 
    • Hazelnut Pear green tea is such a surprising delight! Even avid tea drinkers could get thrown off by the ingredient list. This is a must-try for every flavoured tea lover.
    • Lavender Cream Earl Grey black tea gets the approval of earl grey connoisseurs. We tested! If you love cream earl greys, this may become your new favourite. 
    • Serene is a herbal tea that lives up to its namesake. It's rest and retreat in a cup courtesy of an amazing ingredient list. 

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.

My favourite tea was the Hazelnut Pear, which I left a review for. I also left a review for my other fave, Duchess First Love!
