Shimodozono Ginger Tea : Summery blossoms of fresh jasmine, this tea is a phenomenon of fragrance and sweetness. Feel the taste slowly unfold the rich and smooth sweet floral flavor for an elegant delight.
I like this tea as a morning tea along with a warm omelette. It’s a very calming sort of tea that relaxes my mind and tastes really smooth as well. It doesn’t have a strong spicy taste to it as it’s blended with black tea leaves. Ginger is a great herb for ladies, especially during the m-flow days when your body needs extra nourishment. I’ve always relied on ginger and peppermint tea during those unpleasant days and have found ginger tea to reduce a lot of lower abdomen bloating within just a few days. This is a great tea to drink whenever you feel the onset of a heartburn. My granny gives me ginger tea whenever I have indigestion and it really does work. Better than medication and gentler on the stomach too. Try it!
Best paired with a dark chocolate cake! The chef from Bene Spaghetti created these various food pairings based on the flavour profiles of each kind of tea :) Both cake and tea complemented each other really well!
Ah, rose oolong tea. Did I mention that I LOVE ROSES in my tea? I buy lots of french rose tea blends and so, I was naturally really excited to give this tea a shot. This rose oolong tea didn’t disappoint me at all and like all the 5 other teas that I have personally tried from Tealy at this point in time, I can say that this is my favourite one. I’d once lost 2kg while drinking oolong tea everyday as my tuition teacher, who’d lost a lot of weight while drinking this regularly, told me that oolong tea is a detoxing tea. Well, true enough, it did work for me too :) Rose +oolong = best of both worlds.
The mixed herb & roasted tea was paired with a sesame panna cotta dessert! Light and smooth, the dessert brought out the complex flavours of the mixed herb tea! It consists of green tea, ginger and lemon grass herbs all mixed into one tea pyramid! The taste isn’t pungent at all, which is surprising to me as many lemongrass teas are like that and so I personally steer away from those sort of teas. It has a roasted flavour that reminds me of how Genmai-cha tastes like yet it’s got hints of ginger and lemongrass in it. I like drinking this after a heavy dessert!

These teas are well-packaged on the exterior with a resealable zip lock to ensure optimum freshness. Each pyramid tea bag provides maximum exposure to the hot water upon brewing so you’re getting quality tea with each brew. I usually can make two rounds of 250ml cup of tea per pyramid bag :) I personally love these teas and am very happy that a local company has brought in these award-winning teas for all to enjoy. They’re affordably priced for what they are and can definitely compete with high end french tea blends that I have at home. In fact, I find them to be smoother in taste and more consistent in flavour after the first brew.
