Six Teas You Have To Try This Spring
Tuesday, 12 February 2019 | The Tea Makers of London
Summer breezes and warm long evenings. Red and gold autumn leaves crunch beneath foot. Winter morning mists thinly veil frosty hillsides, streams and woodlands. But what of spring? Only apple blossom, only little lambs hopping in buttercupped meadows, only a new beginning and the perfect time to take pleasure in the finest loose leaf teas around. If you love your tea, don't let spring pass you by without having taken a well-earned moment to exult in these magnificent offerings:
First Flush Darjeelings - 2018
Mid-March harvested, fragrant, pleasingly complex and wonderfully cheerful. First Flush Darjeeling is without doubt one of our very favourites at The Tea Makers. What better way to start the day? Or afternoon or evening, for that matter.
Darjeeling Earl Grey and Bergamot, No. 09
Another delightfully aromatic tea, this time enhanced by the addition of pure Italian Bergamot oil and fruit pieces. Enjoy it neat, with a dash of milk, or even with a light sprinkling of sugar for those with a sweet tooth; our Darjeeling Earl Grey is beautifully bright and bracing.
Sencha Goji-berry Pomegranate Blend , No. 57
This green tea is sure to get the juices flowing. Sweet berries combine with tart pomegranate seeds to result in a distinct complexity that maintains balance, great long-lasting taste and stunningly fruity fragrance.
Alluring Apple and Ginger Green Tea, No. 74
Pretty in the caddy and delicious in the teacup, a lovely fruity, fragrant combination of green tea and dried fruit pieces. This beautifully structured blend is spicy and tingly; great for winter afternoons, but also perfect for cool spring evenings and even May Day picnics.
Lily "Love" Green Flowering Tea
But if you prefer a more articulated structure in your flowering teas, our Lily "Love" is a superb alternative. This blooming green tea is made of the highest grade of special green tea of fresh spring crops, Rose Flowers and Lily Flowers. It is made in China by skilled Artisans by hand to produce a delicately aromatic, flavourful cup of tea. Flowering teas, as well as perfectly capturing the essence of spring, are romantic, healthy, bright and a feast for the eye.
Lemongrass and Ginger Tea, No. 127
This invigorating and uplifting ginger tea herbal blend is a combination of aromatic lemongrass and spicy ginger pieces, mixed with soothing peppermint and liquorice for subtle natural sweetness. Renowned for high antioxidants and digestive properties this naturally caffeine-free herbal tea is perfect for any time of day this springtime, served hot or as a cold brew tea.
