I bought this largely because my wife enjoys Chai and Earl Grey, but I have been pleasantly surprised to enjoy sharing both with her. The spicing in the Sticky Chai is really nicely balanced and it is sweet without being at all cloying. The Batch guide on ways to make it were also really helpful. The Earl Grey is relatively subtle compared to the big, slightly offputting perfume hit I sometimes get from this style. The breakfast blend has a pleasing strength to it, and milk brings out its comforting maltiness. The tea was also very nicely packaged - this would make a great gift for someone who likes British-style tea but doesn't realise how much better loose leaf can be.
Ok, so I give in! Since buying Batch Breakfast I have continued to occasionally chuck in a bag of Yorkshire Tea for a quick handy cuppa. Previously my favourite tea, Yorkshire has finally just been relegated to occasions when the man of the house makes a brew and he is only capable of a bag in a mug (I will work on him!). Batch Breakfast has depth and no bitterness, strength but without tasting stewed, and refreshing right to the last sip. The Batch Team have another convert! Another order is brewing.
I have always been a Yorkshire Tea Bag girl. Boringly saying 'I know what I like, a nice strong cuppa!' But since meeting Batch Tea, things have shifted. I have found tea with multiple layers of flavour that pack a punch without ever tasting strong or over-brewed. And this 2nd Flush Darjeeling is very special. Totally uplifting like a good cuppa should be, but also offering refreshing flavour right to the final sip. I have mine without milk - pure amber loveliness (I sound like Nigella! - but honestly it's true!).
Thank you so much for your wonderful review!
We're so glad that you like our teas. As we may have told you, this Darjeeling is my favourite. I love the description 'pure amber'. Perfect summary.
Thanks again and we look forward to wowing you with more of our range soon!
I'm a big fan of Batch and their excellent loose leaf tea. Having already sampled the delights of their lovely breakfast blend and outstanding darjeeling 2nd flush, I'm pleased to say that their Earl Grey is delicate and comforting, a perfect afternoon brew. Top marks!
Thanks so much for your lovely review! We're so glad you love (all) our teas so much! It's such a pleasure to introduce you to a wider spectrum of the teas out there. It's kinda why we do what we do, so thank you.
Have a great day!
Recently purchased a Samadoyo teapot and breakfast tea. Really impressed by the quality of the products and the breakfast tea is lovely. Will be purchasing it again and recommending this company to everyone I know.
Thanks so much for your review. I'm glad you liked the teapot and the tea so much. I got a bit excited when I was telling you about it so am glad it lived up to the hype! 🙂
Have a great day.
Great flavour Chai tea.
The best I’ve had.
I will be ordering more of this soon.
Fast delivery and great service from Batch Tea Co.
Thanks so much for your great review.
Kama Sutra Sticky Chai is kind of our baby, and we spent a long time getting the recipe just right, and a lot of love goes in to hand-crafting each batch, so your words mean so much.
Have a lovely day.
Quick processing of order
Great tea! Great service!
Really lovely sweet complex aromas
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We're big fans of this tea ourselves so really glad you've enjoyed it. Have a lovely day!
In a word "wow". My morning has been improved immeasurably with a cup of this lovely tea, which was hand delivered. Whilst we're stuck in the interminable grind of lockdown mk3, it's small things like this which bring most joy. Thanks!
I am fairly new to drinking Tea, I've been shopping around looking for the perfect Sticky Chai, this is it!!
Thank you so much for your kind review! We put a lot of love into each batch of Kama Sutra Sticky Chai so your words mean a lot. We're glad you like it so much! Have a lovely day and we hope to hear from you soon!
My two gift sets were delivered safe and sound despite heavy snow fall. The tea was much appreciated too. Its a great gift idea
Thank you so much for your lovely review.
It was our pleasure to deliver these gift sets - especially the local one that we were able to hand deliver.
Thank you for being so thoughtful and making the world a little bit brighter for the 2 recipients, and also for choosing our teas for your gifts. It means a lot to us.
Thanks again for the lovely review. Have a lovely day!
Had forgotten how amazing real tea tastes! Tried Batch Breakfast and Earl so far, and they are delicious. Great service and packaging - also ordered a cute glass tea mug whic adds to the flavour I’m sure! Will be back
The tea is delicious, arrived quickly and beautiful packaging. Will be ordering again
I don't think I've ever been so struck by the flavour and quality of a tea before. This is superb.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We agree wholeheartedly with your thoughts on this beautiful tea so you've tickled us pink with your words. Have a lovely day.
I bought a little of this Breakfast to try... and within days was ordering more. Exactly as claimed, it has a full, malty flavour but is free of bitterness.
Thanks you for your review and for your recent orders!
We're very proud of our Batch Breakfast blend so your kind words are much appreciated. We strived to create a strong, flavourful breakfast blend that you don't need to over brew to the point bitterness to get the flavour out, as that was something we struggled to find on the market. We're happy that our blend satisfies this criteria so we're delighted that you feel the same.
Thanks again and we hope that you have a lovely day.
Bought a stunning glass teapot with some of the lovely teas as a gift for my Mother in law. She was over the moon and commented how beautiful the teapot was. Simple ordering and delivery process. Thank you.
This is the Earl Grey I've been seeking. Subtle bergamont with a hint of citrus. Fabulous. Thank you.
This is a lovely gift for anyone who is into serious tea drinking! Quick delivery and a really nice product. Thanks!
Beautifully packed and now gift wrapped and sent on to family, no feedback from them yet
My first taste into Liu Bao and I wasn't disappointed by how Batch Tea described. Including how moreish it is! A quality I can't explain better than that. Bought another pack a week later. Many thanks!
This Darjeeling oozes quality and is one of the nicest blends I’ve tasted. I could quite happily drink this blend all day. Sublime ☺️
Autumn calls for hot drinks and I thought it was the perfect time to try Kama Sutra Sticky Chai by Batch Tea Co. I’m the first to admit I’m not a big chai drinker but I’ve been hearing so many great things about this tea that’s blended in Sheffield. This chai is unlike any other, it is like it’s title it has a sticky texture as the leaves and spices have been soaked. I prefer my tea without milk so I drink it black. From opening the package you get a glorious hit of aromatic spices and this does not dissipate once steeped. The taste is sweet but not sickly and is very warming. I think I could find myself reaching for this blend time and time again. Perfect tea for a chilly afternoon to relax with a book.
Best osmanthus tea I ever had. My friend loved it. Far better than we expected! Good quality & taste refreshing. Highly recommended & pls give it a try!
