Firstly, this is not a paid post.
I get loads of offers to sample or write about products, most which I kindly decline.
I do love my teas however, and when I received an email from Madame Flavour I agreed to try a sample, not expecting to be particularly blown away.
The first thing I noticed was the attention to detail.
Beautifully packaged, the delight starts as soon as you open the box - the glint of gold (a bit Willy Wonka-ish) with a little letter printed onto quality textured paper that explains the story behind the teas, created with love and passion that comes across before you have even boiled the kettle.
The teabags are little silken pyramids that puff up to allow the leaves within room to breathe and steep, so you get that loose leaf flavour.
I'm an Earl Grey fan, and I have to say the "Classic Grey Deluxe" is stunning -
"smooth Ceylon and Assam teas, a pinch of Australian lemon myrtle and a sprinkling of lavender flowers "
a beautiful aussie twist that I will have to buy more of because my sample box disappeared way too quickly.
The "Luscious Licorice Tisane" and "Cheerful Raspberry Hibiscus Tisane" are also winners in my book (don't you love the word tisane?).
Orange-Choc Ceylon with cocoa bean pieces, orange peel and a "restrained sprinkling of European dark chocolate drops", perfect for that afternoon slump.
So I tip my hat to the marketing team - you have me sold and I am sharing because I love your product, I would even give them as a gift and you can get them in Woolworths and Coles, so treat yourself next time you are shopping. Make sure you get out your favourite tea cup and lock the kids in a cupboard for half an hour, because you deserve it ;)
