Propa tea

English breakfast is my regular order, for me Lapsong is OTT. Russian Caravan gives just the right mix of smokey

This is lovely stuff. Very Smokey and deep flavour. Well worth the money.... which isn't much really, is it.

Pretty good, not try to damn with faint praise - I have bought a LOT of it!

This is a pretty decent Russian Caravan tea blend, and is in fact, so far, the best substitute for the long-lost formula for the Russian Caravan tea that Peets used to offer (then Mighty Leaf took it over afterwards). This is not as scrumptious as that one, and I have been experimenting with additional elements to try to approximate that remembered deliciousness. And I did have an opportunity to taste the two blends (Mighty Leaf & DGStoreUK) side by side.

So - what this one really needs is more Lapsang Souchong for that smoky nose, as well as some other medium-bodied note I haven't been able to identify yet (it is not assam or oolong. I am still waiting to try blending in keemun, or perhaps a golden tips from Nepal. TBD if those work). Nonetheless, I am buying my third batch of THIS tea from DGStoreUK, and will likely continue for some time. Until I can perfect my own blend! LOL. That may take a while....

Extremely good value. Good delivery.

Delightfully smokey

Another tea that's been one of my go to teas for some time. Complex, subtly smokey in flavour that leaves a pleasant earthy aftertaste.

I really love this tea. It has a wonderful earthy, sweet, milky aroma and a rich deep creamy flavour and it is one of my favourites.

Pale and refreshing

A lovely, pale, delicate and refreshing tea. Excellent quality and value as it can be rebrewed several times without a deterioration in taste.

Recommended by a family member this is the 3rd purchase i have made.
when i had covid for the 2nd time Mullein really helped clean my chest of infection and helped to get rid of it quickly.
Its easy to use and there is no nasty taste. Excellent value for money, I have since recommended Mullein to all my friends and family.

Very aromatic

This tea is really nice, you can taste the nutty flavour along with the green tea flavour. Always drink it without any sweeteners it's always so fresh tasting. Fantastic I give it to all my friends and family would definitely be buying again. Its a classic Japanese type of tea and at a good price.
