Tea Review of MD Teas: Masala Chai, Topsy, Liberty Spirit and The Devil is a Woman

Company Name: MD TEA

 

 

TEA SELECTION: MASALA CHAI EXPERIENCE

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Love the way this tea looks and it does brew very fast with a dark liquor, you do not need a lot of tea for this to make an amazing cup full!

Ingredients:

Indian Black Tea

Ginger

Cardamom

Cinnamon

Red Peppercorns

 

The Scent or Aroma:

This tea will surprise you, not the normal Chai sent, it’s there but is not the completeness of this tea.

 

Review:

This tea is amazing as it’s a darker tea with a mellow mood, it’s also a smooth tea! It’s got a little bit of bitterness to it but when/if you add milk or honey to it that just goes into a smooth chai with a little bite to it. This tea has Ginger and that ginger stands out just a bit, on your tongue you feel it even after you have finished sipping. Ginger is an amazing ingredient in any tea but this crafted tea gives it just the right umph!

 

Cost. £7.40   / 100g loose leaf tea

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: TOPSY TEA

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Sort of a play on an Earl Grey with the Bergamot and CornFlowers but the Rooibos really adds a new spice to it.

 

Ingredients:

South African Vanilla Rooibos

Bergamot

CornFlowers

 

 

The Scent or Aroma:

The familiar scent of Rooibos and a slight citrus scent

 

Review:

Such a pretty tea and the beauty of the rooibos bush is not compared with much else in our tea world. The brew is a lovely copper color. A lovely smooth and a bit sweet tasting tea. The vanilla really stands out with a slight citrus back to this tea. I love the way it tastes, fresh and awaking with no caffeine.

 

Cost: £7.50 / 100g loose leaf tea

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

What amazed me most about this tea is the lack of vegetal scent, the scent actually is very light and sweet.

 

Ingredients:

Chinese Yunnan Green Tea

Lemon Peel

Ginger

Natural Flavors

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Light scent with a slightly citrus aroma

 

Review:

Ha, this tea is fun, it’s got a bite to it. That bite is the ginger and it really is evident when you drink it. Funny thing is I never used to be a ginger fan but lately I’m finding I love the little spicy and hot surprise it adds to drinks and foods. If you are looking for a fun green tea this would be it, missing is the vegetal flavor and added is an amazing tea with a slight citrus flavor and a ginger boost.

 

Cost: £7.50 / 100g loose leaf tea

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: LIBERTY SPIRIT

Ingredients:

Mint

Liquorice

Burdock

Milk Thistle

Dandelion

Ginger

 

The Scent or Aroma:

A sweet and minty aroma.

 

Review:

This tea was fun and I knew it would be, such a delightful mix of ingredients and all of which are so healthy for your gut and liver.   This is a mellow tea with an amazing aroma and flavor, the mint is prominent with the other ingredients folding into it to make it just that much more interesting!

Company highlights, notes and more:

 

Launched in 2009 as an antidote to the bland blends and insipid infusions we were finding everywhere around us, MDTea set out to reinvigorate the tradition of tea, initially crafting a bespoke range of 15 loose leaf teas and infusions to bring a bit of excitement and glamour back to what had become little more than a daily dose of limp, caffeinated and colored water for many. Tea’s longstanding reign, was starting to lose its footing against its more trend focused and fashionable cousin, coffee. We thought that it was time to change things, and bring tea back to its rightful spot at the top, not in place of coffee, but standing shoulder to shoulder, as an equal option for the cool, creative, adventurous and engaged market that now existed out there, demanding a little more craft in their cups. In a world where artisanal is now a watchword, and the rituals and rewards of properly brewed beverages are respected and revered, it Was time the tea world work up, and so, we did.
