Hi all,

Many thanks to Urulókë for the tea! It arrived in a very moist England last week and Mrs Burns and I have been enjoying it very much.

I first tried the "Gandalf the Gray" (always throws me that they've chosen to spell grey with an 'a' instead of an 'e') tea. Not having read much on what ingredients went into the teas, it seemed obvious to me that it would be an Earl Grey (Mr Burns' favourite) equivalent.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was chamomile and red bush and actually reminded me very much of a Twining's Green Tea with Chamomile I'd had years ago. Not as green-tasting, of course...in fact better tasting in that regard!

The mint is also very refreshing in the morning or at the end of a tough day in th'office!

We've not tried the breakfast tea yet, but will hopefully get on here to tell you about it when I do.

Action shot! (haha)

Thanks again!

PS - That's not me in the pic...it's a coworker. And he doesn't know I sneakily snapped his pic on my iPhone. Shh!

I received my tea last week. I haven't tasted it yet, but the boxes look beautiful on my bookshelf! :)

Many thanks to Jeremy and the guys from Mint Brook Meadow Teas!

Open in new window

Received mine today. At the moment I am quite content to leave them unopened and admire. I do like the boxes, although my ‘Gandalf the Grey’ box came crushed in one corner. I will however not get to admire the presentation or taste of ‘Bilbo Baggins Breakfast Blend’ as quarantine has it and the price to have it heat treated is far too excessive compared to its worth. :(

Did these teas come shrink-wrapped, or just taped at the sides?
