From the very first whiff of opening the cupboard cup, the sensation smells of the tea and flavours assaults your nose. Smelling them is just too therapeutic.
This very cup was the *TeaShed red bush and vanilla tea. Loose tea wrapped in a silky pyramid bag. Inside the silky bag contains red bush, vanilla liquid, cornflower, saf flower and marigold petals.
Brewed in just 3-4 minutes I relaxed and enjoyed the deep ruby colour tea. The character is almost one-dimensional, with an almost fully defined body; the perfume is intoxicating good, an abrupt aftertaste and has a crystal clear finish.
Just like how I’ve been taught to taste coffee café nero, do the slurp and spit method to taste the character of the tea.
*TeaShed tea’s are from £1.99 the company is almost 3 years old and can be found in John Lewis, hundreds of stockists and food shows. Go on, life is too short to drink bad tea.
