Gentle Giant


A pungent, earthy smell, full of moss and sage like hints, accompanied by a floral backdrop. Think damp pine woods and humbling walks through them.


In comparison to the aroma, the flavour is much more floral, with only a slight herb finish. However, all the tasting notes in Gentle Giant are still subtle, giving the tea a light body. This all unites to make an incredibly soothing and relaxing brew, perfect for destressing. And... there is next to no caffeine in this blend, so if you don’t have any stresses (and I hope you don’t) then this is great as a pre-bed tea.


Sweet: Adding a little honey to Gentle Giant accentuates the subtle floral notes, but still includes the lovely sage finish.

Final Thoughts

A colourful brew that, as the name suggests, is gentle and relaxing.
