Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - we hope you're well today!
It's Friday....it's time to put the kettle on and try a new cup of tea! This time we are sampling some of the tea collection from The Tea Route.
|Teas from The Tea Route|
The Tea Route is a Greek tea business which offers tea lovers unique tea varieties and flavours - inspired by the diversity of Mediterranean nature. Their range includes Mediterranean herbs, fruits, flowers and fragrant spices blended with exquisitely scented teas. Chamomile, mountain tea, lavender, sage, rosemary, as well as cinnamon, Chios mastic, clove, figs, apricots, oranges, and richly scented blossoms including rose and jasmine are paired with black, green and white teas from the gardens of the Far East.
We couldn't wait to try this intriguing range!
Let's start with something that was vaguely familiar.....a cup of Earl Grey Lord Byron...
This Chinese black tea is blended with intense bergamot flavour to create a warming and sweet cup of tea.
The leaves smell sweet, with a light citrus fragrance.....
When brewed you are rewarded with a cup of light brown tea, with a really pretty citrus aroma. It has a really mellow flavour, which will brighten a dull winter day.
Next for a tea which is more exotic....Palmyra....
This is another black tea, this time blended with dates, sultanas, sesame, almond, fig and vanilla. The leaves are very pretty, they smell like sweet nuts or popcorn. They made my mouth water!
Once brewed we had a lovely rich amber colour with a lovely popcorn aroma.
The flavour of this tea is quite surprising, it's light and very refreshing with a nutty, sweet taste. A really lovely cup of tea!
We'd like to thank The Tea Route for sending us these teas to try, if you'd like to find out more about The Tea Route pop by their website.
