They recently launched 4 new flavours – Afternoon Tea, Pure Green Tea, Pure Camomile and Pure Nettle.
I had the pleasure of sampling one of their teas, I originally chose one of their award-winning teas – Jasmine green tea, but from the popular demand they were out of stock so I chose one of their new flavours their Pure Green Tea – A beautifully balanced premium green tea that combines a healthy aroma and flavour without the normal bitterness associated with traditional green teas.
When my sample arrived, it came with their branded cotton tote bag, which was a cute additional gift. In the Pure Green tea box, there were 15 tea bags, and a collectable art card – which I absolutely loved, I felt like a kid again! This was such a great idea- a way to learn about new artists that you wouldn’t have normally come across whilst sipping your tea. My illustrative card was The Opera by Annu Kipelainen.
Sealed in a see-through film the tea bags smelt fresh when I first opened it. I boiled the kettle and left my tea bag to steep for 3 minutes as it was advised on the box – the flavour was delicious! It was full of flavour, light and refreshing. I reused my tea bag as the flavour lasted a lot longer than most green teas I’ve had in the past.
I love the packaging and the collectible art card idea! It’s such a fun concept! I’ll definitely be ordering the Jasmine Green tea, when its back in stock!
