African Winter got me through dry January! It's not the same as a glass of Malbec, but it is comforting, rich, warmly spiced and almost 'choclatey' without being cloyey. I can see why its called "winter" but I think I'll go on drinking this into the Spring.
I absolutely love it!
Strong & delicious flavour
This tea is delicious, hints of cocoa and a lovely spice taste. I recommend 100 percent. Delivery is fast and everything is well packaged and the little surprise teabags are a welcome addition.
Great flavour, very rich and mellow blend, no ingredient is too overpowering.
Delicious with or without milk, lovely winter warmer for any time of day. Highly recommend this tea - lovely notes of cinnamon and cocoa, not too overpowering and well balanced.
The comments on the African winter were all very positive, only some of my clients would prefer less cinnamon.
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!

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...
