A week or so ago, I discovered a brand named LoveTea in my inbox. A unique, relatively new company, LoveTea introduces internationally grown teas from around the world to tea enthusiasts. To sign up for a free sample, you can head to their website here - super easy to navigate, especially if you're tea hungry. My tea sample arrived within a few days, in a foil sachet with little DIY teabags and a set of instructions and notes about your new tea.
The Himalayan Imperial Black tea has long straight leaves with tippy golden streaks. The aroma is earthy and once infused red fruit acidity is released which is counter balanced by a rich cocoa like after taste.I thoroughly enjoyed making my own tea bag, infusing and straining the tea and reclining over the Bank Holiday weekend with a fresh cuppa. It tasted much richer and 'fuller' than my standard Earl Grey or breakfast tea, and I'm definitely going to be bookmarking LoveTea for future use. Tea runs and the marketing desk at work go together like no other! ♥
