    Another must have for the tea cupboard

    I purchased this for the first time and am so pleased that I did. Has a lovely creamy (but not sweet) flavour and is perfect for that last cup of tea of the day. Guess I would call it a 'quiet' tea but full of flavour - just lovely.
    Delivery from Jing is superb, as usual :-)
