I recently discovered a new and local tea company on twitter called Victory Tea. The fact that they are based just down the road from me in Heaton, Newcastle really caught my attention as I love to use local companies if I can, better for the environment and better for the local economy etc...
I clicked onto the Victory Tea website and fell instantly in love, the vintage style of their website and packaging is beautiful and made me really want to try their product! So when I saw that they were offering trial packs I just had to have one.
The packs themselves are so well designed and reflect the strong company brand. I can't bring myself to throw the box away, it is sitting on my kitchen shelf.
Inside the pack there is a very generous sample of teabags (16 in total) in glorious golden bags.
I know I have yet to mention the tea itself yet, but it is simply because I am leaving the best till last. Victory's Blend No. 1 is quite literally THE best tea I have tasted. I am a huge tea drinker and have always just went for the brand that was on special offer at the supermarket. I was by no means a connoisseur, I mean tea is just tea right? wrong!
This tea is a rich and bright golden colour and smells strong and quite fragrant at first. The taste is clean and fresh with a slight sweetness that lifts it. I find with quite a few brands that they can leave a weird aftertaste or have bitter notes but Victory Tea I find, doesn't at all and simply leaves me feeling refreshed and craving a second cup.
Another good thing about Victory Tea is the price, it is only sold online and in bulk (packs of 80, 640, 1600) so they can offer this superior brew for much less than its supermarket rivals.
This tea is so refreshing and has completely converted me. I have even converted a few friends and colleagues into switching to Victory. Now I hope to convert you too.
