The first time I bought teas from The Capsoul, I must admit the beautiful tins were part of its charm. So far, the teas inside haven´t really been overwhelming me, but this is a nice surprise! I´m more of a black tea fan, so green teas often seem grassy and weak to me. However, the addition of jasmine flowers and flavourings, and of mint, bring out the essence of the green tea! Jasmine and mint tend to overwhelm, but this isn´t the case here : jasmine is everywhere in nose – both for the dry loose leaf tea as for the brewed tea – and is very subtle in mouth, while the mint only shows itself in the aftertaste. I could drink this tea all day, so balanced it is. The only draw-back is the very fine cut of the tea leaves, which makes it necessary to filter the liquid before drinking.

Flavors: Green, Jasmine, Mint

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
