That little tea drinking tinker Lee, has been brewing a little guest post for me. Just before Christmas I was sent some wonderful tea from Williamson Tea, and I knew just the girl to put it through its paces. She's fond of a cuppa, and quite frankly has expensive taste. This is what she thought.
I am a firm believer that there isn't much that a cup of tea can't fix, so when Rachel asked if I fancied reviewing some Williamson Tea I popped the kettle on and got to it!
The first thing I must say is that the festive themed caddy that the tea bags arrived in is absolutely beautiful. All the caddies have elephants on them and are different patterns depending on the tea inside. This is a nod to the fact that The Williamson Tea Foundation supports the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, with £1 from the sale of each caddy donated to help protect elephants in the wild.
I also loved that the tea comes with details of where it was grown and how its journey has brought it here to me in sunny North Manchester.
Now, onto the tea itself. The caddy I received was the Snowflake caddy, packed to the brim with Kenyan Earth loose leaf bags. These are Williamson Tea's take on the classic English breakfast. I take my tea without milk and can happily report that these strong and full bodied bags make a cracking brew, which was perfect on its own, but equally with a splash of lemon juice. My boyfriend does take milk in his tea and confirmed it was equally delicious served this way. I have now pointed him back to his own tea bags; I don't share my posh tea!
A lovely brew made by a lovely company who pride themselves on being environmentally responsible whilst providing excellent products. Cheers Williamson... now which caddy shall I order next...?
