I have been drinking Gold Blend for a long time.
Special Blend ist not as delicious as Gold Blend,
but I appreciate that ist is Fair Trade.
During a conference in Dublin I first drank Bewley's tea and loved it. I direchtly purchased some for at home. Now I refilled my stock with different black teas. Everything went well, and the delivery to Germany was really fast. At first I was hesitant due to the relatively high delivery cost, but all in all I found out that when buying the same teas in in Germany it would have been more expensive! So don't be deterred by the delivery costs. ;)
Bewley's Special Blend Fairtrade 80s
As always, super tea but I cannot sustain the incredible carriage charges. Will order tea locally from now on.
Special Blend Fairtrade is a bit milder than the Golden Blend we usually buy. Golden Blend gives you a kickstart in the morning. Special Blend however is a perfect afternoon tea when you also want to have something on the sweet side to go with it. A really nice tea indeed.
