Vintage Tea UK – Morning After Tea in ‘Springtime’ Review


The lovely people at Vintage Tea UK were friendly enough to send me out a sample tin of one of their Moring After Teas special blends in ‘Springtime’.

Well what can I say, I was utterly blown away. Now considering that I am Paleo I don’t tend to drink black tea anymore. Like ever. But I have to say I have gone through my 10 bags pretty swiftly.

Vintage Teas UK are a small tea company based in Warwickshire that ethically sources and  imports the finest teas from Ceylon, Sri Lanka. With a little bit of imagination (and a whole lot of love) they create fab tea blends and pop them into gorgeous, eco-friendly cotton pyramid tea bags just for us lucky peeps to brew up and enjoy!

But don’t worry they don’t just do black teas they also tote a nice green tea range too which looks amazing!

So what’s in the beautiful Springtime blend then? Black tea, maple, safflower, and real marigold petal. If you just look at the bags you can see the individual pieces of safflower and marigold – I love it!

So what was a lady to do on a rainy day with all of this tea? Brew it up of course!

Now the first thing that I noticed as soon as the water hit the tea bag was the gorgeous, comforting smell of maple! Oh my, I was in maple heaven. I’m not even joking. The smell tasted delicious!

So that’s the smell covered, what about the taste?

The first thing that you taste is the sweetness of the maple with a splash of something almost reminiscent of vanilla, it’s gorgeous and comforting, but then arrives the subtle yet earthy splash of safflower that compliments and enhances the maple flavour even more. Next comes the slight bitterness and sunny tang of marigold and the earthy full bodied flavour of black tea.

It’s like drinking sun and Spring in a cup all at once. It is probably one of the most comforting black teas that I have ever consumed!

All of this and the tin is also stunning to look at too. It is just the right size for storing your spare change and keys in afterwards, and as it is really pretty what a bonus!

Excuse my dirty windowsill and bask in the glory that is Springtime!!!

I would absolutely love to try some of their green teas and more from the Morning After range such as ‘LoveBuzz’ which contains rose petal, marigold, kiwi, coconut, saffron flower, jasmine oil and black tea. It just sounds divine!

Springtime costs a rather cheap £5.99 for 20 pyramid tea bags for the ultimate brewing sensation!

If you’d like to bag yourself some of this beautiful tea along with others then check out the Vintage Tea UK shop here.  They have been lovely enough to give all Greens of the Stone Age readers a whopping 10% off any orders of £15 or more.  All you have to do is quote the discount code Greens – I hope you enjoy one of their brews as much as I do!

    I do still occasionally drink black teas, with just a splash of almond milk in.

    I was sceptical at first, but I’m a convert nowadays. Your mileage may vary with delicately scented teas such as this one, but with something like a chai masala based on an Assam it works well enough! 🙂

      Ooooph I would love a Chai masala right now!!! To be fair I did not feel any adverse effects from drinking it at all. I used to love a good cup of earl/lady grey! I sound so middle class!

    Oh my. The airfreight is more than twice the price of the tea…. Guess I will just watch for it to be available in a US market.
