The Friday Review....Williamson Tea

Hello there,

Happy Friday! We hope you are well today.

Today we are featuring a tea from the Williamson Tea range - we might have spotted Williamson Tea in the shops....they are the tea with the elephant image as part of their logo. They also produce some rather unique tea caddies.....

Williamson Tea is a fifth generation tea farming business committed to growing the highest quality sustainable teas to the benefit of Kenya, its communities, wildlife and environment. As tea farmers their teas is grown on their own farms, which means they control the quality of the product all the way from bush to cup.

We were recently lucky enough to be sent a lovely goodie box from Williamson Tea, featuring their Mint Garden tea and a lovely enamel cup....

The caddy contains loose leaf tea pyramids, as soon as you lift the lid of the caddy you are met by a fresh minty aroma....

Mint Garden tea - Williamson Tea

This tea blends green tea with fresh mint leaves. 

Once brewed the tea has a lovely light minty aroma and is a pale yellow/green colour. The flavour of the tea is very refreshing - a very light mint, which I found ever so slightly sweet. All in all a very pleasant cup of tea.

The Williamson Tea Foundation is very proud to support the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The DSWT is the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. 

Currently £1 from the sale of every elephant caddy purchased on the Williamson Tea website will be donated to the charity, which offers the hope to the future of Kenya’s elephant and rhino populations.

To find out more about Williamson Teas and to take a look at the Elephant Caddies (each has a rather beautiful design) pop by their website.

We'd like to thank Williamson Tea for sending us these goodies - but please note that this gift has not effected our taste buds and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Do you have a favourite Williamson Tea blend? We'd love to hear all about it!

Thank you for popping by today,
