Last week I was contacted by a local St Albans business called Other Tea who are a monthly tea subscription service. Their aim is to let you discover unique ‘other’ teas from small growers around the world. The box arrives to your doorstep every month allowing you to try something totally new rather than just black tea.
Now I’m not the biggest fan of traditional black tea unless it’s sole purpose is to keep me warm. In February I travelled to Sri Lanka and as we drove through the tea plantations we stopped off at Storefield Tea Factory. Here we tried eight different variations of tea from white to black, with my favourite being the third lightest.
So I was particularly thrilled to receive three teas from Nepal that were just my cup of tea, pardon the pun! Oolong, white tea and green tea from the foothills of the great Sandakphu Peak. The oolong is my particular favourite.
The wonderful team at Other Tea have given me a discount code so you can receive 50% off your first box, just enter 50OFF when you checkout.
