Time for Tea Please?
Morning , noon or night I can drink tea ! The only difference being what kind of tea depending on the time of day. Today thanks to The Duffy Tea Company I’m going to be trying their evening blend of Midnight Snack.
The Duffy Tea Company “supply high quality, superior grade loose leaf tea, Beverages and accessories across Ireland and worldwide our tea is high in flavour and tastes as good as it smells” (direct from website)

For this tea blend The Duffy Tea Company uses. Rosehip, apple pieces, hibiscus, Melissa, linden blossoms, lemongrass, natural flavour.
As soon as you open the tea pouch the main aroma is the Lemongrass and woody tones.
Let’s get brewing !
Whilst brewing the aroma doesn’t majorly change there is a bit more of the fruity notes of the apple and the hibiscus but the floral notes.
With the combination of the ingredients it was hard to predict what the brewed liquid would be.
The brewed liquid as you can see is that of a redy brown tinge.
Let’s get Sipping !
On first sip I am intrigued. It doesn’t majorly taste like it smells. The lemongrass for me is now at the back of the sip and a more woody earthy taste is at the front. It has an almost pomegranate like taste to it.
For me as the tea cools the flavour of the tea actually gets stronger.
What I love about this tea is the reasoning of the use of Melissa and Linden blossoms both of which are known to “reduce anxiety, boost cognitive function, help ease insomnia and other sleep disorders” (from website)
It’s part of my evening routine to have a bed time tea so this is a perfect brew for me and there’s always something quite comforting knowing your sipping on a cup of magic. It’s like drinking calm.
Happy Sipping 🙂
