Tea of the Day … Gorgeous Geisha

I’m not a fan of green tea.I don’t mind decaf green tea with flavour in it (especially Tetley’s decaf green tea with pomegranate) but full strength green tea usually sends me buzzing and it’s got a bitter taste I just can’t warm too. My second tea trial was T2 Gorgeous Geisha, also a green tea […]
