Excellent quality teas, in compostable and recyclable packaging, delivered quickly, 'Nuff sed!
I like rooibos, and I like the kind of spices in chai, so I expected to like this and I did. I found the pepper notes and the pepperiness within cardamon were what I first got - I think of these as pointy, pungent spicy - ginger too, but ginger has what to me are round, sweet earthy spicy. The warm sweet nutmeg clove cinnamon, puddingy cake bake flavours were less in evidence. I liked the blend of zing refresh rooibos with the chai spice blend.
I think this will be particularly nice in winter, though I might be tempted to add a cinnamon stick to the teapot!
This is one which is not for me, It has more than JUST the natural sweetness of fruit in it, as can be seen in the excellent full ingredient disclosure TenTeas always give.
This was my own ordering mistake. I avoid everything with any artificial sweetening. Whatever it might be. I know this one (Maltodextrin) is in a lot of sports products. I didn't read the ingredients properly before ordering, but discovered immediately on tasting, that the sweet taste was more than sugar
Trying to be objective here, if you are someone who needs to sweeten drinks, you may very well appreciate this one. From having adored the subtle compositions of all the other herb teas, I think the added fruit and herb ingredients should work well, but my particular challenge with any artificial sweetener is that it knocks out my tastebuds to anything else.
This tea, which ten teas suggest a short 2-3 minute brew time for, with water at 80C, rather than boiling point, has that bitter astringent bite we expect to find in tea, but with its volume knob turned right down, so other flavours can float in. The fruits give a subtle, juicy sweetness. I didn't read the ingredients before tasting, as I was interested to see what flavours would suggest themselves. What I picked up, was a faint lemon peel note, and also, under that, sweeter orange peel. I think this was how I tasted the pineapple. A strawberry note (I think that was the mango) It's a lovely, really refreshing blend, and seems particularly suited for summer drinking, though, oddly, I personally wouldn't want this as iced tea - the cooling, refreshing quality intensified when the tea was hottest
Yet another Ten Teas winner.
With lavender and melissa, I assumed this was going to be a last thing at night cuppa, but the absence of the real knockout soporific (chamomile cosh!) plus some digestive stimulants, (aniseed, fennel, caraway) made this seem a little different. Soothing, calming, certainly but more of a chill out than a knock out. And so it proved. I really want to congratulate the 'composer' of this one - it's an inspired, harmonious blend. Lots of different notes. Lavender (and possibly marigold?) give a little bitter edge, but the creamy sweet apple and the aniseed and fennel contain the bitter nicely. Rose hip and blackberry leaves give that citric sharpness. Nothing dominates, and the different elements join together. I really like this one. It's mellow. And with all those aperitive seeds, it could have been filed with ten teas Functional category. I certainly wouldn't drink this in the morning, but it's one for when the sun is over the yard arm! I love complex herb tea blends, and this one is brilliant. Quietly so. The colour is a delicate pale creamy yellow, and reminded me of primroses....
Firstly, be aware (as you will be if you read the ingredients) this is JUST spices, plus fruit - apple, orange, rose hip and hibiscus flowers - but does not contain tea itself.
It really should be drunk from a tea glass, to get the added effect of pleasure to look upon. It's like rose wine, and just looks like happy sunshine days!
A beautiful taste combination. Not overpowered by any one flavour, the zingy sharp ingredients - hibiscus, rose hip, mellowed by creamy sweet apple and warm sweet spices. Absolutely, absolutely delicious. Get yourself into a patch of sunlight and the colour, in a tea glass will be even more beautiful. Happy sipping!
Curiously, given the 'cool mint' name of the blend, the presence of liquorice makes this more of a warming mint tea than most of my other (many) mint teas. I do like this, but it has a little more natural sweetness (apple, liquorice) than I want from a peppermint tea. This would certainly be a great blend for anyone who feels the need to add sweetness (honey, sugar) to their teas. I have friends who do, and this would be a nice gift for them. I might be more inclined to reach for this one in winter, when I do indeed like herbal teas with ingredients. The which are heating. The sweetness also makes this more of an evening tea for me, rather than a daytime one where I like herbs which feel a bit more astringent, tangy refreshing
One of the added pleasures of herb teas for me is always the colour, so I like to brew them in a glass pot or drink them from double walled borosilicate tea glasses. This one is a lovely light yellow green. The sweetness would also be pleasant for anyone who might be trying to avoid the biscuit barrel, as it gives a bit of a feeling of sugar satisfaction to the tastebuds, without the addition of everything which goes along with the biscuit barrel!
I mainly drink herb and fruit infusions, so this one was perfect for me. Brilliant red colour (best appreciated in a few glass) this has that sweet citrus tang complemented by the hibiscus and rose hip. And with that lot, it should be a great Vitamin C cocktail too! This would also be one I'd let cool down and drink as iced tea. If the aroma didn't demand instant sipping.
Orange Blossom Oolong
Amazing tea, no bitter after taste and perfect in the afternoon.
We have bought a selection of Teas from the company and have found them to be helpful and with excellent customer care.... we have not used the Scottish Breakfast tea yet!
Really good cuppa.
The website is giving very detailed description of their products, but when the tea arrived few days later I was over the moon- it was better than any possible description! All the teas I bought smell heavenly and taste amazing!!!! Thank you very much! I will definitely shop again!!!
Ordered 200g pack and it arrived in 48 hrs. Tea is very good quality and can be infused 2-3 times easily. This is a tea for people who like green tea but wish it could have more punch. Perfect with a fresh croissant. Mail service is excellent and website easy to use.
The peppermint has a lovely flavour , good strong but not bitter . Definitely recommend for peppermint lovers
A nice refreshing aromatic tea! Thank you!
The filters are are robust
a good size. Wise to Practice opening and re seal bag with flap before you fill with tea! A good size bag but I’ve had 4 so far which were incomplete.
The flap hasn’t been completed therefore the bag doesn’t seal as it should. Also with these incomplete bags the string has Detached each time. This looks like a manufacturing problem - but apart from this, the bags work very well .
We love this tea. Was part of a multiple choice order. Very pleased with quick delivery- next day- as the estimated date was three days. Will be using your site again. 🙂
This was ordered as part of a larger order. Tried this tea at one of our local tea shops and loved it. So pleased to find it on your site. Will certainly order again. Delivery was less than 24 hours after ordering. Very impressed with the standard of service and the secure packaging.
Ordered this as part of a larger order. Not tried it yet, but the tea was delivered less than 24 hours after ordering. Very impressed. Will certainly order from you again. 🙂
Was ordering the White Earl Grey and came across this tea. Hubby suffers with digestive problems, so thought this would be ideal for him. Not tried it yet, but it smells lovely and the speed at which it was delivered was amazing.
After trying to buy this tea in M&S, found out they no longer sell it, so was thrilled to find it on your website and even cheaper than M&S. Even better, the order came the day after I ordered it. Brilliant service and will certainly be ordering from you again Ian the future.
Lovely warming tea! Soothing and pleasing to Drink - a nice balanced blend of herbs and spices....
Very nice !
