85g of Black loose/leaf tea with safflower, almond and cherry flavours.
Packed into a foil resealable bag to preserve freshness.
My husband is the tea connoisseur in our house, with me being a total coffee fan, so he was very happy to receive something to try from our latest KIWIreviews box. This review is based on what he commented about the tea, what I tasted in my cup that I tried and also smelled while it was steeping.
With the silly season of Christmas nearly upon on, and teachers and grandparents to buy for, I am always on the lookout for nice yet different gifts. The box is very Christmas-y, and so nice - I kind of feel it would be a shame to cover it with wrapping - a really nice ribbon would be lovely!! The box itself is very easy to open, and reveals the foil wrapped tea - sealing in the freshness - excellent!
Opening the tea it smells amazing - I first detected traces of almond and cherry - and I immediately thought of Christmas cake and cooking in my Grandma's kitchen. Brewing it up was easy - I opted to use a single serve tea strainer - which gave me the idea that the Basilur New Year's Gift Tea, a strainer, a mug and maybe some handmade biscuits would be a lovely present to receive. Back to the brewing, it was easy, and as the tea steeped the flavours smelled stronger and even nicer, if that is possible! It is possible that you could drink this tea without milk - but I opted to add milk.
It is a lovely sweet tasting tea, with flavour that lingers in your mouth. The only downside to this tea is that the flavour is a little on the light side, rather than the full body and flavour of other teas that I am used to. You can get round this though - by adding more of the tea to your strainer, but, then you go through it a lot faster - however, tea strength is really up the individual, so there is no real way to cater to everyones taste!
This is a lovely tea, and my husband is very keen to try all the other flavours, so I think I may know just what to get him for Christmas! Shhhhhh... do not go and tell him!!
