The Friday Review....JADU Tea

Hello there,

Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - today we have another tea-riffc Friday Review for you and today we are trying several teas from JADU Tea.

JADU Tea London is an independent Luxury Tea Brand based in the UK. ‘JADU’ is ‘magic’ in ancient Sanskrit and their mission is to conjure a little magic through the exploration of the enchanting world of tea. Their young team has a deep passion and enthusiastic commitment to reveal and celebrate the charm and allure of tea as a beneficial healthful beverage.

JADU Tea's aim is to offer high quality, luxury gift teas that bring a sense of indulgence and satisfaction to every customer.

We are reviewing three different teas today.....


Here we have the Spa Afternoon tea, the Rooibos Creme Brulee and the China Green.

Let's begin with the intriguingly named Spa Afternoon tea which we received in a pretty gift box....

Spa Afternoon - JADU Tea

This is a loose leaf blend of Spearmint, Chinese Ti Guan Yin oolong tea, Nettle, Dandelion, Burdock, and Milk Thistle, which is designed to cleanse and purify. 

The leaves have a distinctive spearmint aroma to them, which hits you as soon as you open the box.

Spa Afternoon - JADU Tea

To make the tea, heat water to 80°C and infuse with 3g of tea per 200ml water for approximately 2 minutes - drink without milk.

Once brewed you have a lovely, light and refreshing cup of tea. It is minty in flavour, but not as minty as I had expected considering the aroma (to me this was a plus as it wasn't overpowering). I really enjoyed this cuppa.

Please ignore all the escaped leaves - I think I need to new strainer!

Now for something completely different - the Rooibos Creme Brulee....

Rooibos Creme Brulee - JADU Tea

A smooth, sweet treat in the form of an innocent herbal infusion. 

This blend is based on rooibos, the South African herb that is a popular naturally caffeine-free alternative to tea, combined with rich caramel and hints of cinnamon. 

The leaves have a wonderful rich, caramel aroma.

This blend includes Rooibos, Cinnamon, Caramel pieces, Hazelnut pieces and Calendula petals.

Rooibos Creme Brulee - JADU Tea

This tea once brewed can be enjoyed with or without milk (I opted for without).

The tea has such a pretty aroma and a rich amber colour. Its definitely a tea for someone with a sweet tooth as the caramel flavours come through really well, but saying that I found it quite a light blend (so again, not too overpowering).

Finally we move onto something a little more traditional....the China Green tea, which we tried in the form of a tea pyramid....

China Green - JADU Tea

This is a full-bodied green tea from the Yunnan province of China.

To brew the tea it is recommended that you heat water to about 80°C and infuse 3g of tea per 200ml of water for 2 minutes. Enjoy this green tea without milk.

China Green - JADU Tea

I love a good cup of green tea and this cuppa was lovely - it had a subtle grassy flavour, very refreshing and easy to drink.

All in all I enjoyed all the teas we tried from JADU Tea and I loved the gift box that the Afternoon Spa tea came in (this is optional when purchasing the tea). There are ten teas in the JADU Tea range, including several black teas, green teas, a white tea, the rooibos we tried here several herbal infusions. To read more about the range pop by the JADU Tea website.

We'd like to thank JADU Tea for sending us their teas to try. But please remember that although we have received these teas free of charge this has not effected our taste buds, and all thoughts expressed here are our own.

Have you tried any of the JADU Teas? We'd love to hear your thoughts....

Thank you for popping by today,
