I bought this tea last week after trying round my friends house, it is full of flavour and helps me to feel relaxed and chilled! Everyone should try it.
Everything about my order was just perfect, from the moment I opened the box. I love the extra touch of a handwritten thank you, the tea samples and all manner of compostible packaging. The tea, lychee and rose are fragrant and delicious and a pleasure I look forward to every morning.
Have been ordering lychee for a few years now and never disappointed. Tried rooibos as well this time and love it.
I ordered some loose tea within the UK lockdown period and was extremely impressed with how efficient and speedy the delivery was! When the tea arrived, it came with some free sample bags of tea, a mug placemat and a little card which said inside "enjoy the tea zack :)". This was a lovely personal touch especially in these troubling times. Thank you John

The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
