The first three in my teapot?
Limited Edition Jasmine Earl Grey - I was lucky enough to be given the Blossom LE Earl Grey as a gift a while back and I’ve been keen to try out the other flavours ever since.
As I poured the hot water in, the Jasmine aroma hit me and I already knew this was a winner. The bergamot tones of the Earl Grey are still quite distinct but the addition of Jasmine really brings this tea to another level. Obviously it’s a floral blend so if that’s your thing, I really urge you to try this!
Rose Garden – one of my favourite things in the world is Rose flavoured Turkish delight. This tea is liquid gold to me. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying a caddy of this. I’d suggest that Earl Grey drinkers would like this alternative, perfumed brew.
Ceylon – Probably the brightest, freshest black tea I’ve ever tried. Worth a try if you find English Breakfast a little too full bodied.
All three of the above teas are very versatile, they’re great both black or with a touch of milk. I imagine they’d make wonderful iced teas in Summer (Twining’s have a really helpful how to make tea section if you’re unsure).
I’m really looking forward to making my way through the rest of the box, mainly the white teas - white with a hint of pomegranate sounds right up my street. I love the idea of these pick and mix boxes, they’re a great way to try new blends and would make a well thought out gift or treat for yourself.
