Sorry for my lack of posts recently, my internet has been on and off (mostly off) for a few weeks now and it’s made posting reviews very difficult. :( Thankfully everything appears to have been fixed so I am back in business.

In dry form this tea is noticeable a mixture of both black and green teas that are in rather small pieces. Mixed amongst them are a few yellow petals and flower buds.

As I open the packet a sweet and fruity scent fills the air. It does smell like passion fruit but could also be mistaken for mango or possibly papaya no hint of anything floral or jasmine like.

Once steeped the tea forms a red/brown colour and has a dry and slightly sweet fruit aroma. It’s fruit scent has change and is a little unrecognisable, now it’s more like peach.

In taste this is rich, roasty, fruity, sweet, woody and floral. There is a thick jasmine flavour that has become somewhat earthy and rich
with help from the black tea. Almost enough to be bitter but just edging away from it slightly. The fruit is still more peach or apricot than anything else but it’s gone in a flash and taken over by the jasmine.

In a weird way it reminds me of a generic cheap fruity Oolong. It’s nice but not something I think I would ever crave or miss. Nice if you like a strong fruit based tea that keeps it’s tea elements, however I am in two minds about it.

I’m 34 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
