‘You only get one Mam…’

>Mother’s Day is fast approaching and with that in mind, Commercial Trainee Andrew tells us what his mother means to him. A mother is the truest friend you will ever have and I know if I have any trouble or big decisions I have to make, she will always be the first person I turn to for advice, usually over a cup of tea (Extra Fresh if you’re asking) and she is always right… no matter what the subject. I can’t even begin to tell you the influence my mother... Read More

China Yellow Buds Tea in Cup Image 26/03/2013

China Yellow Buds

This is a very rare tea from Yunnan comprising only delicate golden buds. It is produced in Mannong, on Hekai Mountain, one of the world’s most ancient tea cultivation areas.

This tea is always made in small quantities because it is so difficult to produce and rarely available. This tea is pale and mellow, with a sweet flavour that has hints of apricot and pear. According to... Read More
