As you know I am a total tea addict and my current favourite brand is Jadu Tea London. I was kindly sent a big box of their range to try and have fallen in love with their teas over the last 2 weeks.
Firstly, how stunning and elegant is their packaging? This was the first thing that caught my eye when my parcel arrived. They have recently been featured in Vogue, so that gives you an idea of their target market. It really would make a great gift.
Jadu Tea is an independent Global Luxury Tea Brand based in the UK and their aim is to provide high quality luxury tea, indulgence and satisfaction to their customers.
I was sent the following teas
1. English Breakfast- As mentioned in a previous tea review post, Assam tea is my absolute favourite tea in the world. Jadu’s English Breakfast Tea is a blend of Assam with bright and refreshing Sri Lankan Uva Orange Pekoe. This is different to any other Assam Tea I have tried before in a good way! Really smooth and delicious without milk too.
2. China Green- Again I love Green Tea, usually I go for the flavoured variety as I can find plain Green Tea really bland. What was interesting about China Green is that it was smoother than what I was used to and not bitter, I did add a little Manuka honey to taste for my own preference. This particular tea is from the Yunnan province of China, which is one of the oldest tea growing regions in the world.
3. Apple Lemon Ginger- This a warming green tea blend with ginger, lemongrass and sweet apple. I first tried Apple Tea on holiday in Turkey and fell in love, it’s my favourite summer iced tea. This blend is interesting as the ginger gives you a good kick but then it’s balanced well by the sweetness of the apple. I have been drinking this as an iced tea.
4. Mademoiselle Grey- Saving the best for last here. This was my favourite out of the teas I was sent. Mademoiselle Grey is Jadu’s take on the classic Earl Grey. The base is Sri Lankan Uva black tea, then it’s partnered with zesty, aromatic Bergamot and finished with bright citrus notes of lemon, orange and lemongrass, and red cornflowers. This is a great tea!
It is delicious with or without milk.
I’m looking forward to trying more of the range soon.
