I love tea! Love it, love it, love it!
When I found there was a tea tasting in Brighton, I went. It’s listed in the Brighton Fringe Festival which runs in May. You can tea taste all year round at Bluebird Tea.
They remind me of tea made in Canada called David’s Tea. I’ve a sneaky suspicion is the inspiration for this tea shop. I asked and no one said they knew, but then the tea tasting was done by others. It’s true the owners were in Canada and inspired by the new tea trend which is sweeping across North America.
If you really want to beat the trend,here’s your chance, as this is new here and worth a looky-loo!
Tasting – Mixology
The tea tasting experience is a lot like tasting wines. The colour, tannins smells and flavours are all a part of the process.
I think the biggest surprise to me was Matcha tea. Thinking I knew most tea variations, this Japanese based green tea had not reached me yet. I now know about it and it’s now a new favourite for its taste, health benefits and make it with a bamboo brush!
Also, if you have a sweet tooth, but don’t want the waist line to match it. Bluebird Tea offer a huge range of tasty teas which can satisfy that craving, but without the calories or caffeine! Flavours like: Snowball, Jelly and ice cream, Red Velvet Tea, Maple Bacon Pancakes, Rhubarb and Custard, etc. The teas are changing with the seasons, so if you find something you like, get it while you can.
You can join their tea university, do their Mixology workshops – blend your tea with alcohol – delicious – and join the tea club.
They give you easy ways to make cold teas without having to heat the water. They sell all sorts of fun tea accessories, too!
For me, it is just tea heaven and I’m so glad it’s here in Brighton.
I made my own tea blend on the tea mixology event – yummy – combining all my favourites!
Wow, that sounds amazing! I’ll try to find the “Bluebird Tea”, and the Matcha tea also sounds interesting! I remember drinking Chinese tea with my parents when I was little, every evening we would sit down together and have a couple of cups…it really was a special moment in the day. I remember them telling me there would be tea leaves that were burried for 25 years before they were used for actual tea. Thanks for sharing!
