This was the first Teapigs tea that I tried pretty much straight away when I got home from the parcel office!
When I unwrapped it, I was really impressed at the quality of the bag. There was none of your average papery stuff. This one was made of a silky muslin type material that felt really luxurious before I had even put the kettle on!
Another thing that is impressive is that when they say that they use real tea, they mean it. There are actual pieces of tea leaf in the bag instead of the normal powdery brown stuff you get in the supermarket.
When the tea was brewing it turned a wonderfully dark brown colour and smelt really nice and strong! I left the bag in for just over 3 minutes and when I took it out, the contents had rehydrated and filled the bag completely in its pyramid shape! I was really, really impressed by this as ou normally end up with a soggy mess from traditional tea.
Finally, I got to taste it! I added some skimmed milk and let it cool a little first, then went in or my first sip. I like strong tea, so this was great for me. It had a really great flavour and felt quite luxurious to drink, a real treat.
I will definitely be putting in another order soon and this tea will feature on it for certain!
I will let you know my thoughts on the other flavours as I try them out.
