Taste of Malawi doesn't disappoint

First thing I noticed about this superb Earl Grey tea, was the packaging. It comes in a lovely silver tin, which will provide suitable storage going forward. The tea itself doesn't disappoint either, fantastic fresh taste from the tea plantations of Malawi, close to Blantyre, where I lived as a child. A wonderful, refreshing reminder of a fantastic, idyllic childhood. This loose tea will continue to be a treat for me, brought out to share only with special friends!

Refined Refreshment

This "Rare Earl Grey" is a delightful twist on a classic favorite. It balances a robust base with subtle citrusy notes, creating a sophisticated yet comforting cup. The flavor is nuanced and well-rounded, offering a moment of quiet luxury in a busy day. I typically enjoy it as an afternoon pick-me-up. A truly refined Earl Grey experience.

Spectacularly balanced and highly versatile; it makes a delicious cold infused iced tea and a brilliant base for cocktails.
