The lovely people at Teavivre recently sent me a fantastic selection of top quality China teas, so I have been eager to try them all. Today I was in the mood for a nice, strong black tea, so I put the blue teapot and one of the lovely teacups and saucers I received as Christmas gifts to good use and brewed up some Superfine Tan Yang Gong Fu Black Tea.
This delicious, earthy black tea is made up of pure tea buds and tea leaves, making it hearty and full of flavour. At weekends, I usually have several cups of black tea in the morning and early afternoon, then change to something a bit lighter in the late afternoon and evening, so this was the perfect post-lunch brew. I tried it both with and without milk, and both were crisp and refreshing.
Next, I plan to try their green and Oolong teas, then their other blends of black tea. I love a bit of variety and am looking forward to the opportunity to use all my new teapots and steepers!
