Wishlist Wednesday - Beautiful Black

Craving some new black teas... here's some that are on my list at the moment!

Keemun Mao Feng from Larsen and Thompson. As you may recall I really enjoyed the Keemun that I got from SanTion and I'm keen to try some other Keemuns as well. I like the Larsen and Thompson brand, I've had some really lovely single-estate Darjeeling and Assam from them in the past.

Likewise I would like to try another Golden Yunnan... This one from Rishi Tea sounds delicious, and Rishi Tea is renowned for their high quality, so I'm sure it would taste as wonderful as it sounds!

Earl Grey Grand Classic from Lupicia... This has been recommended to me by a couple of friends, and I had a sniff of it last time I was in at Lupicia's shop at the QV. It smells amazing, both like and unlike 'traditional' Earl Grey. Can't wait to get my hands on some!


And, just because I've never tried it, I'd like to sample some Irish Breakfast, perhaps Taylor's of Harrogate's. Sometimes what you really need is a terrifically bracing cup with milk... I'm sure this would hit the spot!

Which black teas are you craving right now? Would love to hear your picks!


  1. I read this just on morning tea time - perfect!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it Carley :)

  3. I haven't tried that particular Rishi Tea but I have had their China Breakfast, which is another Yunnan black tea, and it's very good; here's my very brief review:

    My favorite black teas right now are Hampstead Tea's Darjeeling, it's definitely on the lighter side though. Detailed review:

    I also really liked this Kenyan tea from Malaika estate, sold by Upton Tea Imports, brief review:

  4. Thanks Alex for those links, I will have a look! :) Love hearing about other people's tea experiences!
