5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully fragrant tea with a lingering sweetness, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Incredibly fragrant and with a long-lasting sweet aftertaste, ginseng oolong tea was a favourite discovery in China - and this version is just as good.

The tea is packed with lingering flavour (without the slight bitterness of some black teas) and the leaves will allow for a couple of top ups.

Plus apparently it's good for your health - definitely worth a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a fan of the scent, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The texture and absorbency of the oil were good but I really wasn't a fan of the scent.
I found it cloying, overly sweet, and a bit overpowering (the other half wouldn't let it near him.)

I would advise checking the scent in store if at all possible before purchasing - it seems a bit of a marmite smell.
Packaging is lovely, though the lid on mine was a bit leaky.


Loose Leaf Black Tea Scented With Lychee - 125g
Loose Leaf Black Tea Scented With Lychee - 125g
Offered by Leaf
Price: £6.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Fragrant black tea, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely fragrant scent, strong enough tea leaves that you can top up a few times, and 100g should be enough to last you quite a while.
The lychee adds aroma rather than sweetness, and the flavour is considerably more subtle than in artificially flavoured teas.

The tea was delivered next day, well-packaged and slim enough to fit through the letterbox.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lasted for 7 months then died., 28 Jun. 2011
The delivery and service for the product was great, but the charger has just died on me after 7 months use.
(The original charger lasted for 4 years.)
It might be better to invest in a higher quality charger than to have this one leave you in the lurch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice romance, slightly odd subject matter, 22 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Divine Evil (Paperback)
I love Nora Roberts and usually enjoy the mix of the fantasy and the contemporary romance genre.
Liked the characters and enjoyed the romance but found it hard to suspend my disbelief when it got to the Satanism and devil worship...
The "evil" characters were stereotypical as was the ending but the relationship between the central characters is well developed and something to smile at. Worth reading and will probably appeal to lots of other readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit too much backtracking..., 5 Aug. 2006
I really enjoyed the previous Artemis Fowl novels, liking the creativity and the interesting portrayal of characters. This book seemed to be a bit weaker as there is a lot of going over previous ground covered in the earlier books. Artemis still speaks in his typically arrogant and self assured manner but the whole "puberty" gag gets a bit tiresome.

However the demon race is very interesting but just seemed so far removed from Holly's world and Artemis's, making them seem far too secondary. in addition, I miss Julius Root!

The story is still very enjoyable and the creativity is still there in abundance, maybe it'll take a few more reads to settle next to the other books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius..., 1 Aug. 2006
I bought this after I bought Surfacing, so I was half expecting another piano based album but was surprised to find it had a lot more beat. The songs are beautifully written with typically excellent Mclachlan vocals. In addition, the CD has more tracks than Surfacing and is perhaps more appealing to mainstream music lovers. Both CDs are great works of musical art and are definitely worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Beautiful..., 24 July 2006
This review is from: Surfacing (Audio CD)
First heard Sarah Mclachlan on Buffy the vampire slayer, (the song Full of Grace) and immediately fell in love. This was later followed by discovering she sang the piano ballad on toy story two and that the soul wrenching music was definitely something to investigate further. Bought this album and it hasn't left the CD player since, only complaint is it's too short... More next time please!

Favourite songs include 'Do What You Have To Do' and 'Black and White'.

Listen to all these recommendations, she's fantastic!
