Lewisham Tea Company – Bora Bora

Time for Tea Please?

Thanks to Lewisham Tea Company I’m able to bring you today’s tea review featuring their Bora Bora tea. Lewisham Tea Company has a fantastic ethos of a tea for every mood. Focusing on sipping the “stuff that tastes good and makes us feel even better”. Sipping on a mug of tea for me is part of looking after my wellbeing , taking a moment to myself to enjoy the sipping pleasures and moment of calm a cuppa can bring. Especially if I need a bit of a boost.

With having 6 teas in their range it means their focus is purely on the tea and allowing the tea to really do the talking.

Bora Bora

For this tea blend Lewisham Tea Company uses Hibiscus blossoms, apple pieces, papaya cubes, currants, elderberries, blackcurrant, sunflower blossoms, cornflower blossoms, freeze dried raspberry and strawberry pieces. Now all of these sound tealicious !

Upon opening the tea pouch you are instantly hit with a fruitea punch ! I can instantly make our the papaya cubes which added a super sweetness to the aroma.

Combined with all the other aspects of the ingredients it smells like opening a bag of sweeties with an underlining floral tone. It’s certainly getting my mouth watering !!!!

Let’s get brewing!

While brewing the aroma changes quite significantly from its dry state. It’s not quite so sweet in its smell and I can almost smell notes of cocoa which is strange considering there isn’t any within the blend itself. It might just be the magic of the ingredients infusing together.

The brewed liquid is of a deep pinky red almost red wine like in its colouring.

With a brew time of 12 minutes I’m hoping like the amazing rich colour of the tea it’s flavour matches it.

First sip is simply BeauTEAful!

It certainly has the intense rich flavour I was very much hoping for. It’s sipping sensation is the perfect balance of fruit and floral in equal measures. Neither over powers the other but works in a perfect harmony to provide a taste sensation.
Just like the balance of the fruit and floral aspects of the tea each individual ingredient doesn’t shout any louder than the other. To me the fruity flavours of the tea come with the initial sip and then right at the end almost at the swallow (I guess that’s how you’d describe it) the floral flavours come through. A sip that keeps on giving!

This is the perfect tea for a mug of me time. It’s almost magic in a cup! Just like the name Bora Bora

I also feel this is one of those fruitea teas which would be perfectly brewed ice cold or even served with lemonade for a summer spritzer.

So thank you Lewisham Tea Company for this BeauTEAful blend !

Happy Sipping 🙂
