As you probably already know, I absolutely love discovering new and interesting Teas. That’s why when the guys over at The Mad Hatter Tea Company very kindly asked me if I would like to try some of their Original Tea Bags, I of course said yes. Well i’ve been drinking them for a little while now, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.
Here’s what The Mad Hatter Tea Company say about themselves.
Mad Hatter Tea is blended to deliver a perfect balance of colour and flavour that simply tantalises taste buds.
Mad Hatter Tea is so named because Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, called Richmond, our hometown, his home for over 25 years. We aim to intertwine Carroll’s Mad Hatters connection with Tea with our own Tea, giving everyone the opportunity to experience a taste of Wonderland!
Here’s what The Mad Hatter Tea Company say about their Original Tea Bags.
Our Original Tea is available in both loose leaf and tea bag form, and is a perfect combination of colour and flavour. Designed to revive the spirit, enrich your mood, and add peppiness and cheerfulness to the substance of life.
Their brewing time!
It said that you were supposed to brew these for between three and five minutes, but I found that whenever I brewed them for the full five minutes that they tasted incredibly bitter, and that whenever I brewed them for less than four minutes that they tasted extremely weak.
I really liked their taste, as I thought that they had a delicious rich and malty yet sweet taste to them, that made for a great cup of Tea to start my day off with.
I really liked their packaging, as unlike most Tea Bags, these came in a massive resealable Paper pouch which meant that they all stayed extremely fresh. I also really liked the material of the Tea Bags themselves, as they were made out of a thin yet durable Paper, which meant that they didn’t split apart when I tried to remove them from my cup.
My overall thoughts.
Overall I would have to rate The Mad Hatter Tea Company Original Tea Bags a nine out of ten. I absolutely loved their brewing time, their delicious rich and malty yet sweet taste, and their packaging, and I would definitely consider replacing my normal every day Tea Bags with them. But unfortunately these are only available to buy online or from their shop in Richmond, and given the amount of Tea that I go through on a daily basis, I need to be able to restock my Tea bags rather easily.
I was very kindly sent a pouch of The Mad Hatter Tea Company Original 40 Tea Bags to review, but all thoughts, opinions, and general ramblings are my own.
