So, I was really excited when The Teaguy offered to send me a few samples to review. It’s one more option for me, here in Canada, besides David’s and Camellia Sinensis (and sometimes Teavana), plus they have a very large selection of organic teas which is a major advantage for me (my boyfriend told me about this show where they tested for pesticides in the teas and most of them were above the safe limits, so I always try to pick organic teas whenever I can from now on…)
The package arrived yesterday, right on time for my finals revision week… (bleh) It’s so hard to stay inside and study when it’s finally getting warm and sunny outside…
The tea smelled slightly different than other breakfast blends I tried. I checked the ingredients list, and I think it’s because of the Keemun: it smells a bit peppery which intrigued me. I had the first cup plain and it’s already very good like this: there is no bitterness.
But then I had to add some cream and sugar because this is how I prefer to drink my breakfast blends!
I wasn’t sure if I’d like the Keemun but it’s actually a really nice addition, the smokiness/pepperiness gives it a distinctive taste without being too overpowering and it blends well with the honey notes and maltiness from the Assam.
All in all, it’s a very easy drinking cup, very smooth, the whole teapot disappeared in less than 20 min… I’m pretty sure I will repurchase once I’ve finished my sample.
So now back to more revisions… and more tea drinking!
