I’ve never been a big fan of herbal teas, a plain, sweet ceylon tea has always been a safe flavour to sip on for me. I’ve recently started to branch out into the Madame Flavour collection after trying some samples, and I’m hooked! I’ve only had the opportunity to try 3 so far, but here’s a small review!
Green, Jasmine & Pear: “Cool pear adds a fruity note to this classic fragrant tea.” This is my favourite, hands down! I love a good green tea and this is just that but slightly sweeter and, as the decription suggests, a touch fruity. I add milk (which I probably shouldn’t do) and an extra sugar because my sweet tooth is insatiable. I think this is a must-have staple to your personal tea collection, I could sip this all day — well, I am at this moment, to be honest. Sultry Chai: “Sensual black tea spiced with Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger and a dash of Australian Mountain Pepper leaf.”This one is not to my taste, but my housemate adores it! It smells beautifully spicy and I’m assured that if you like Chai you will love this tea. Signature Blend: “Selected from my 3 favourite ceylon estates, hand-picked and blended with love.” This one has replaced my usual lipton and tetley black tea bags, it’s a beautiful blend and I can’t get enough of it! The recommonded infusion time is 2–3 minutes but I only leave my tea bag in for about 1, I enjoy a light brew with a touch of milk and a spoonful of sugar. Each infuser pod holds enough flavour to re-infuse multiple times, so you get more for your money each time (which I’m sure anyone can appreciate). The adorable bags are bio-degradable and every box of tea comes with a lovely welcome note with information about how to get the best out of your chosen blend. I can’t wait to get my hands on some more and get a full collection!
