FROM THE FOUNDER
How do you make a boring tea fabulous? This was my dilemma. I hate boring tea. It's boring. And definitely not fabulous, or fancy. Unfortunately we had so many requests for a lemongrass and ginger blend (boring!), I really had to get my butt into action and create something fabulously worthy of the Tielka name. Thankfully the answer was simple: lemon myrtle. Lemon myrtle is just sublime. It reminds me of lemon sorbet gelato, but without that nasty sugary hit. I can smell it right now (it's in a tub conveniently stored about a metre away from my desk) and the effect on me is very similar to seeing pictures of baby elephants. Seriously, who doesn't feel joy when they see a baby elephant pic? Last week we had a massive box of organic lemon myrtle delivered to the Tielka warehouse and the courier commented how delightful his van had smelt all the way from his depot. I happily accepted this little load of joy and I'm sure he was disappointed to part ways with that divine lemon myrtle. So I decided to add a dose of lemon myrtle to the traditional lemongrass and ginger duo. That's much better. It's now proud part of the Tielka Tea Collection.
