This is another tea from Tea Tourist but from their Shine & Sparkle monthly tea box.
Cheshire Breakfast is a black tea from the Cheshire Tea Company. It is a mix of Kenyan’s Jan-Feb seasonal leaves, Assam leaves and India’s 2nd flush (June) tea leaves which creates a smooth tea blend. Mixed with the selection of black tea leaves is naturally dried safflower petals which gives it a sweet, chocolatey taste. 🍫
The dried safflower petals are known for a number of health benefits such as:
- Lowers cholesterol
- Controls blood sugar levels
- Helps improve stress and anxiety
- Helps boost the immune system (if drunk regularly)
- Contains antioxidants
However drinking safflower in tea often can thin your blood – be careful if you have any blood related conditions.
This black tea includes approximately 27-36mg of caffeine per cup (per teaspoon serving) and for best tasting results brew between 3-7 minutes.
- Flavour: 9/10
- Aroma: 8/10
- Appearance: 5/10
Overall this scored 73%, this was mainly due to the tea tasted beautiful! A smooth tea blend with hints of sweet chocolate, which wasn’t too strong either. For our results we brewed for 5 minutes and that was perfect time for us. We have always kept to 5 minutes of brewing and also added a dash of milk which we felt made it better. We prefer our black tea with milk but you can drink without. The smell lasts for long enough to enjoy your tea and fills the room with chocolate smell as soon as the water hits the tea leaves. Black tea appearance is never anything pretty or unusual to stand out but the hint of orange colour from the safflower petals gave it a bright colour amongst the dark leaves.
For a bag of this amazing tea is a bargain at only £3.95 for 50g if you want to try first.🍃
