LooleconderaBy: Matthew on 11 December 2019I was put on to Loolecondera when I lived in Perth and went to the specialist tea shop in Subiaco. That was in about 1990. I can't buy it where I live now (Japan) but thanks to TLA I can get my full flavour BOPF delivered to my door in less than a week. Superb tea and no bitterness. I'm a light sleeper and often wake at 4-5 a.m. dreaming of tea. When that happens there's only one solution: the drink that fortifies the over sixties. Pro tip. A French press (coffee plunger) makes an ideal tea pot. Add tea, pour in boiling water and when the tea leaves sink to the bottom (1-2 minutes) press the plunger. Teasmaid, no bitterness. Never use it for coffee.
Tea Leaves Response
Great tip Matthew
Great flavourBy: Pamela on 6 August 2019Full body not bitter for one who drinks black tea no sugar
My favourite TeaBy: Elizabeth Bettridge on 29 July 2019Loolecondera is my favourite tea. I just can't refuse it. I loved the packaging of my parcel using paper instead of plastic. Prompt arrival especially seeing I'm in rural Western Australia.
