Brings you into the moment

Everything stops for a second when you are having your first sip of Nirvana. The delicate jasmine aroma calls all your attention into that perfect moment, then the spermint with its soft presence. it's now the perfect moment... then to top it all the lovely orange aftertaste. Have tried and love many of your teas Bird and Blend, but this one takes me to Nirvana every time!

Grown ups tea!

I always have mint tea in my cupboard and this one is a real treat. I didn't expect to like it but I LOVE it. Such delicate flavours, I feel like a proper grown up drinking it. Haven't found a Bird & Blend tea that I don't like yet and in a few weeks I've built up quite a collection!!

A PERFECT blend with a perfect name.

This just might be my favorite green or white from B&B and definitely one of my absolute favorites that B&B has ever created. The dry blend kind of brings peace in itself it is so nice looking- yeah, tea nerd here. I mostly smell spearmint in the dry blend. The flavor is lovely, mostly spearmint and super sweet jasmine from the actual jasmine buds in the blend. The green or white teas aren’t terribly noticeable so everything must be blending nicely! Very refreshing and the name is fitting. A great combination! My B&B order COULD be ridiculous.
Steep #1 // 30 min after boiling // 3 min
Steep #2 // 30 min after // 3 min

My Happy Tea

Maisie had this in her Bird and Blend Tea Advent Calendar and I thought "no, that'll never work!" but when she (very grudgingly I must say) let me take a sip I realised just how wrong I can be (which as my husband said came as no surprise to him...). This tea is light and refreshing and it smells so pretty. I'm not a fan of the usual peppermint tea but this is in a totally different league, the mix of spearmint and jasmine with the loveliness of silver needle tea makes a heavenly blend that makes me smile :)...Read more

Jasmine + Spearmint = Bliss

I’m rather excited for this one, as I really enjoy the other spearmint white tea I have in my cupboard. This one has jasmine as well, which sounds like a lovely combination.

I didn’t realize that it also has green tea, and instead steeped it as a white tea. Oops.
Luckily, the green tea took it like a champ and didn’t get bitter at all.

Yummy. I would say the jasmine is the strongest flavor here, but the spearmint is definitely present. I’m not sure how much I can taste the white tea next to the strong jasmine. I think I taste the green tea more, with its very slight smokiness and a touch of apricot. White tea tends to be quite delicate, so I think it’s just drowned out by the other flavors. Perhaps there’s a hint of hay or oats in there somewhere?

Even though really, for me, this is a green tea with jasmine and spearmint, I still really really like it. I think this may be the jasmine tea that I need to keep stocked in my cupboard! ❤

Light and refreshingly delicious

This is one of my all-time favourite teas, the jasmine is distinctive but with it being a white tea it is less bitter than its green counterpart, and the spearmint is a nice gentle accompaniment.

*****

Refreshing floral blend

Perfect balance of flavours. I sometimes find jasmine teas a bit much but the mint takes some of the heaviness from the jasmine giving it a really refreshing taste, while still keeping the floral jasmine flavour. Wasn't expecting this combination to work but it really does!

*****

The best

One of my favourite teas ever - highly recommended.

*****

Liquid meditation

A very cool tea very relaxing the jasemin comes through nicely and the white tea is delicate and cleansing i prefer it cold brewed first thing in the morning or warm at night

*****

As the name suggests, Heavenly!

I had this in the advent calendar and knew I needed more. I love the taste of jasmine but got quite sick of the taste of green tea, so this is perfect! it' a bit of heaven with every sip. Given my fave Enchanted Narnia a run for it's money

*****

refreshing and soothing!

a light, soft, comforting blend that does you. good!! the jasmine and mint are balanced so perfectly that their flavours seem to fuse and create a new taste which works so well with the white and green tea base!!

*****

Love this!

One of the best teas I have ever tried! It relaxes and chills you out after a long day and tastes...DIVINE!!!

*****

Really Nirvana

This lovely tea can somehow be energizing and calming at the same time. I love it specially during the weekend, when I want to relax but don’t want to feel tired or too sleepy.

*****

Heaven in a cup

Fresh and light with a hint of spearmint, I could drink this all day (and often do!)

*****

Love at first sip

For me, this tea was love at first sip when I bought it from a cafe when on holiday in York. At the first opportunity I was googling 'Nearly Nirvana' to find out where I could buy my own supply. I think it's the combination of the floral jasmine and refreshing spearmint that makes it so wonderful. I like that it uses white and green teas as the base to provide an uplifting but invigorating brew. I have a large supply at work and it always cheers me up to have a cup of this during a busy day!...Read more

Zenful

Second favourite tea in the world after Dozy Girl. Soothing, great for after meals, can't recommend this highly enough!

*****

Aptly named

This tea is THE nicest tea I've ever tried! Taking a first sniff of it I closed my eyes and was transported back to holidays abroad wandering around the south of France and Spain, (with the scent of jasmine) feeling completely zen! It's strangely magical, has no weird after taste, it's smooth, fresh and uplifting. The mint is really subtle and doesn't overpower unlike many other mint based teas. If I could make this into a fragrance I'd wear it religiously!...Read more

You need to try this tea, NOW

After just one sip of this heavenly tea I immediately felt my shoulders drop and my body just relax. The flavours are so delicate yet perfectly balanced. This tea is incredible I’ve never tried anything quite like it.

Teaway to heaven

I wasn't sure about this blend at first. I found it quite strong/ heady. Cut the quantity back and add a tiny bit of sugar and you're there ! Nirvana.
