Ausum, as awesome as it is, means bold and darling – just like the teas. If you like your Assam and Darjeeling tea, and nothing else, then all I’ll say is, try it. You might just like it. Sure it may not replace your morning cuppa, but for a pleasant drink post work, or with friends to unwind after a solid meal, these are really flavourful and refreshing. Oh, plus they’re organic and ethically-sourced. And if you’re not sure about it, then they have samplers too. Try those first. Some are also caffeine free, and they've even got a few diabetes ones, which I will get my grandmother to sample and report!
To be honest, I am a coffee drinker. And married to a coffee planter, I don’t have much of a choice! So when I was introduced by a friend to Ausum Tea, I was sceptical. But when I sipped on a mug of Winter in A Mug and After 8, I was truly blown away. The former was packed with all things I associate with a Christmas in England with cinnamon, star anise and apple hitting all my senses! For all of you who like the smell of rain, there’s a divine tea called Petrichor – liquorice, clove, spearmint, ginger and much more, with first flush green tea. Yum! I can’t wait to try the Spanish Sangria and the latest collection of herbal infusions, that interesting combinations like Bluepea flower & Chamomile, Turmeric & Peppercorn and Hibiscus & Nettle.
