Wonderful aromatic blend, perfect for a light breakfast, or afternoon tea. Similar to Earl Grey, but with a “twist “!
I've tried out quite a few High Teas black teas and this is so far one of my favourites for afternoon drinking. I would recommend weighing loose tea rather than guessing and timing the brew properly. 4g of tea brewed for 3 min in a 340ml mug usually works best for me.
Flavoured teas don't suit everyone. Mainly because they are drunk at the wrong time of day. The afternoon is the time for flavoured teas when the grind of the day says "get me out of here", A flavoured tea breaks the rhythm of the day. We use three and rotate them: Prince of Wales is our alternative to Earl Grey; next Excelsior Earl Grey - just opening the caddy and inhaling deeply is a moment of luxury; and finally Queen Mary's Rose Garden, a decorous tea for sunny Summer afternoons, with a book, in the orchard.
I really like this tea, as teas go this is pure simplicity which is why it is so attractive to drink. It is very moorish to drink and leaves you feeling refreshed.
Very refreshing and full of flavour
