What’s Your Tea Personality?

Bit picky when it comes to tea? We’d say that was a very good personality trait indeed.

On our site you can sort by taste profile, tea type or origin. But in the end it all comes down to the individual. Here are a few of our highlights for experimentalists, tired types and sugar-fiends.

POSITIVITEA: feel-good teas to improve your mood

Jade Oolong: call it the good life

You know when you see someone drinking a cup of tea and they just look… Happy? They might well be drinking Jade Oolong, a beautiful high-grown Taiwanese tea with beautiful jade-green leaves and a creamy, almost buttery taste.

Goji Acai: love your superfoods?

Goji, Acai, Green Tea. Three superfoods, all in one tea. All three are jam-packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C is said to boost immunity, and there are all sorts of whispers about weight-loss. Something to chat about in the yoga queue.

Orange Blossom: in need of some aromatherapy?

Ever tried making almond and orange blossom meringues? They’re amazing. And obviously the perfect combination with our Orange Blossom black tea: it’s vibrant, refreshing and gloriously floral.

TEA FOR THE TIRED: boosting brews and soothing infusions

Grapefruit Yerba Mate: ever been to South America?

Then you may have experienced the Yerba Mate effect. The leaves of the Yerba Mate plant are naturally packed with three types of stimulant, and we’ve added grapefruit, lemon balm and peppermint for extra buzz.

Chilli Chai: the Mumbai mix

Chai works like a charm for the tired – as we found, trawling around the hot streets of Mumbai in May. Most good chais contain a hint of chilli, and we’ve ramped up the heat. A wake-up call for your tastebuds.

Cucumber Mint: bright eyes brew

Do cucumbers really work as a face mask? Personally we prefer them in sandwiches, but they’re also sublime blended with peppermint. Definitely up there as one of the most refreshing teas in our collection.

THE EXPERIMENTALIST: tea for adventurous tastes

Gaba Oolong: a technologist’s tea

Into your tea technology? Then you might be interested in the technique behind this Taiwanese tea, designed to increase the levels of ‘Gaba’, a compound thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system. The taste? Apricots and cream.

Margaret’s Hope Moonlight Darjeeling: nothing like it under the moon

Margaret’s Hope Estate is famous for its First Flush Darjeeling, and we were intrigued to see that they also produce a rather unusual style of white tea. With its slight hint of Darjeeling muscatel, it’s quite unlike any white tea we’ve tried.

Tuo Cha Tea Cakes: a traveller’s tea

In China tea is traditionally sold in a compressed ‘cake’ or ‘brick’, originally designed for taking the tea on long journeys. These individually wrapped cakes of Hunan black tea have a strong, fruity taste with a hint of spice and smoke.

SWEET-TOOTH: tea without the dentistry

Petit Macaron: let them eat cake

This is a blend to put Pierre Hermé to shame: a gourmet combination of green tea, black tea, coconut, caramel and hazelnut brittle. We can’t decide which tea we prefer, Petit Macaron or Red Velvet Cake….

Choco-Rooibos: cutting down on the hot chocolate?

Don’t be too Spartan, just go herbal. Our Great Taste Award-winning Choco-Roobois is blended with dark cocoa nibs, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and a twist of black pepper. It’s inspired by the cocoa sipped by the Spanish court in the 16th century.

Coconut Truffle: sweet on white tea?

White tea is the least processed of all types of tea – in fact, it’s the nearest thing to the original tea leaf. The clean, hydrating taste makes it a wonderful base for a blend, and we’ve combined the leaves with cocoa nibs and pieces of coconut.

PRETTY TEA: something for show-offs

Piccadilly Blend: eye candy tea

This is our original ‘confetti tea’, scattered with multicoloured petals and blended with flavours of rose, strawberry and lotus. We love to store it in big glass jars on the kitchen shelf – it looks amazing next to our Mango and Bergamot.

Extravagant Earl Grey: the beauty of afternoon tea

We’re never satisfied until we’ve tried all different styles of a tea, and British Earl Grey has experimentation at its heart. That’s why we created a white tea version and added a sprinkling of Madagascan Vanilla – it’s extravagant and it knows it.

Herbal Chai: tea that deserves to be seen

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder but we’d go as far to say that our Herbal Chai is quite possibly the most beautiful blend in our collection. Think pom-poms of golden camomile, sweet star anise and pretty pink rose petals…
