I have always had a strong bond with tea, but always preferred teabags over loose tea leaves just because it is so much easier to make tea. But when I opened my mind towards loose tea leaves, I realised how many more options I have at hand, and how much I can experiment with various flavours, even making my own flavour.
During my loose tea leaves discovery, I was in London, and this is where I came across London Tea Exchange. Right next to the tea shop door, there were various teas one could sample. And so I did…
Entering the shop was like I was in heaven. Everywhere I look, it was tea and more tea… Over a hundred choices, and I couldn’t be more excited.. and confused.
It was hard to just choose just the one flavour, but since I never had chocolate or coconut flavoured tea, I thought that I should opt for a black tea… with these two flavours. May I say that…. It is magnificent?
The tea was given in a golden packaging which made it safely from London to Malta.
The tea itself looks something like the below… Although not cheap, it is very tasty and makes me feel all warm and tingly inside….
When in London, I’d suggest you give this shop a try, if like me, you are a massive tea lover 😉
