I Blooming love Tea
I Blooming love Blooming Tea!
My family have always been tea lovers, but like to stick to a good English breakfast tea. PG tips is my moms and my grandads tea of choice. Personally, I have a much more diverse tea palette!
I like to travel a lot, and my taste in tea diversified when I travelled in Africa and Asia. When I travelled to Sichuan province of China, the weather was quite hot, so I went into a cafe and asked for water. To my surprise, they gave me a flask of boiling water, rather than chilled with ice. That's because people there carry their lose tea leaves with them everywhere they go!
I have tried Chai in China and Rwanda, green tea in China and mint tea in Morocco. I am a big fan of herbal teas and green teas as a consequence, and I'd like to share my love of tea in this lens. I searched for tea companies in the UK that could cater for my diverse international taste in tea. I absolutely love
LuLin Teas mainly produce green teas from China. They have over 8 different types to choose from. This is an excellent choice of brand for the green tea connoisseur. Their best tea, and possibly the best tea I have ever found, is this âblooming teaâ. As you can see here, this is a spectacular little brew that opens up in your cup like a flower itâs fascinating to watch and you should try it in a glass cup to get the full effect!
