Time for Tea Please?
Thanks to the lovelies at Teabury for sending me two of their lovely blends to try!
Teabury are small independent tea company with a big heart for everything organic and quality, specifically when it comes to the ingredients used within their tea blends.
Teabury‘s motto is ‘Keep it simple’. Therefore chose to not use artificial flavours. I love it when they say “We love nature and all its beauty, colours, smells, tastes and goodness. We ask the question ‘Why flavour something artificially when there is so much natural beauty and goodness around?” To allow there natural ingredients to do the talking. To ensure there tea has intensity of flavour each tea is hand blended in small batches, with love and care. As to Teabury Happiness certainly is tea in a cup!

Teabury acknowledges that beauty comes from within and by sipping on this tea they to hope provide not just a pleasant sipping experience but the natural ingredients used within the blend should also help bring back clearer skin to its drinker! Now ifs that not a big enough reason to get sipping on a tea then what is.
For this blend Teabury uses 100% Organic Rooibos, Organic Spearmint and Organic Chamomile.
Upon opening the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with an overload of spearmint. It’s super punchy and gets your senses going. It’s not until further smelling that you can pick out the floral aroma of the chamomile with under hints of the Rooibos.
Let’s get brewing!
Whilst brewing the aroma doesn’t overly change. The spearmint is less prominent it’s almost like it’s calming down. Allowing from under its minty sweetness the chamomile to pop up and say hello!
I was also,surprised by the brewed liquid,with it being more brown in colour rather than the greeny tinge,you tend to get with teas that contain mint.
First Sip is tealicious !
It is minty fresh ! What I love about this tea blend is the use of the spearmint. Unlike other types of mint the flavour is slightly different. To me it’s adding an extra sweetness to the blend. But it’s also less harsh and rather than being pungent and overbearing, it’s pleasant and inviting. Plus spearmint is commonly used for digestion.
On almost what I call the after sip of drinking the tea is where the other two ingredients get to shine. The chamomile adds a much lightness to the tea adding the delicate floral aspect to the sip. Where as the Rooibos within the blend adds a more earthy flavour. Together the mixture of all three work in harmony with each other taking it in turns to be part of the sip. One only downside and this is personal taste wise is I’d personally prefer the taste of the Rooibos and Chamomile to be a little bit stronger with the spearmint being a little bit weaker but that’s just me.
Like with many peppermint based teas the flavour doesn’t change as the tea cools and I can tell it would be lovely served over ice!
Happy Sipping 🙂
