Review | Taylors of Harrogate Blackberry and Elderflower Tea
I never really used to like any form of fruity or spicy tea but after trying this tea, I’ve been inspired to try more and more as it is simply delicious. If you’re a fan of berry flavours, this is something I highly recommend. One of the main reasons why I used to dislike flavoured teas was because I felt like they could be quite tangy and have a slight bitter after taste which I did not find pleasant. With this tea I certainly did not find that was the case. Although I do admittedly add a spoonful of sugar to my cup, this does have a very slight sweet taste to it, despite containing no added sugar. I think because of this many people would enjoy it without the added sugar but for myself, I do love my tea nice and sweet. For the flavour it is certainly not weak but at the same time it is not overwhelming and is sort of delicate. It contains ripe berries and elderflower which are both said to be natural ingredients. It is really quite a pleasant drink and because it contains no caffeine, I find it perfect as a before bedtime treat to help me relax and calm down after a hectic day. Each bag comes individually wrapped in pretty purple packaging which I think just adds to the product. This particular tea was created in partnership with Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The two teamed up to create the range of infusions using the finest fruits and herbs. Other flavours in the range include Chamomile and Vanilla, Peppermint Leaf, Lemongrass and Ginger and the two which are next on my list to try, Sweet Rhubarb and of course Spiced Apple which sounds like a great flavour, especially for this time of year.
In terms of price I believe the Taylors Of Harrogate Blackberry and Elderflower Tea normally retails at around the £3 mark for a 20 tea bag box and is available to purchase in stores such as Tesco, ASDA, Waitrose and Ocado but I have recently noticed the price has dropped to £2 at ASDA which is great, especially if you want to give it a try but do not fancy paying full price or just fancy saving yourself a bit of money. If you are someone who doesn’t really go out of the house, you can’t find the teas in your area or you would simply prefer to purchase the tea online, all of the flavours are available to purchase on the Kew website but they are slightly more expensive at £3.50 each. Will I be repurchasing this tea? I most certainly will, I feel it is a lovely drink which I enjoy very much. It is great before bedtime and a nice change from my usual English Breakfast Tea. I can’t recommend it enough.
