Happy International Tea Day 2015

image
Well I’m a girl who loves her cup of tea, so much so that I decided to add tea reviews to my blog. Over the last year I have been lucky to sample a variety of new teas from black, green fruit and herbal.

Some I have loved others not so. One of my favourite tea discoveries is from Pukka Herbs three mint tea. I love that you can taste all three elements to the tea. I also find that it is calming on the tummy yet refreshing and is now a stale in my tea collection.

Another surprise discovery was Sainsbury’s blackcurrant tea. A great value tea that has a great aroma and flavour and a real comfort tea for me.

My disappointing tea discoveries have come from Lidl. Yes they may be cheap but both the mint and ceylon lack aroma and flavour. I ended up doubling the mint teabags to get a reasonable cup of tea.

I hope you like my tea reviews and I would welcome and recommendations of tea to try. Right now I think it’s time for me to grab a cup of tea and take advantage of International Tea Day. What tea are you enjoying today ? I would love to hear from you ☕️ C.

  1. Happy International Tea day! We had no idea! We don’t go a day without having at least three cups of the stuff; we would never want to have to ‘double up’! So, it’s great that you’re adding this addition to your blog to help set the record straight! We are currently hooked on Winter Spice but have you tried rhubarb tea? It’s delicious! 😀 http://bit.ly/1XtmaFH

  2. My favorite of all time (that’s 68 years of USA tea drinking) is PUKKA’s
    Licorice and Cinnamon (www.pukkaherbs.com). First tried at a local tea
    room, now I order it through Amazon.com. Ingredients: Licorice root,

    cocoa bean, roasted chicory root, cardamon, cardamon seed, cinnamon
    bark, fennel seed. 🙂

  3. We’re big tea fans here too, although I only started drinking tea about 10 years ago when we moved to a house without mains water. We have our own water supply & it’s delicious on it’s own! Anyway, loved your blog post & here are a few of our own favourites: NiksTea “Sleepwell” (does what it says!); Aldi Specially Selected Peppermint Infusions (really minty!); Teapigs “Jasmine Pearls”; & Aldi own brand tea bags in the gold box (great everyday tea!). Probably my favourite tea is chamomile, but I don’t mind which brand ☺

    • Thanks for popping by Jane I’m glad you liked the post. I’ve not heard of Niks tea. I must try some of this Aldi peppermint tea as I have mint tea every day. The Jasmine Pearls sound intriguing. I have all of my tea milk free so I think the Aldi gold brand may be to strong for me. I also like chamomile tea, the best I had was on a holiday to Turkey this year. I had to bring some home with me. I will add your suggestions to my lists of teas to try in the new year. Thank you 😊 C.

  4. How ironic I made my tea post on national tea day without realizing it!! That is super funny. Well I for one can say I will be looking forward to tea reviews from you!! Perhaps I should start doing that since I’ll be trying a bunch more, hmm. Thanks for stopping by my blog too. 🙂

    • Hi, thanks for stopping by. I hope that you will enjoy my future tea reviews. Why not give it a go at reviewing the teas you enjoy is a good excuse to try more and I would look forward to reading your future posts ☕️ 😊 C.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love tea (my sister once recommended a box of Pukka “Love”, by the way, and it’s really, really nice). If you like exotic and/or speciality teas, you should probably check out Chinalife, where I order my Chinese teas from almost exclusively. My favourites include Black Rose (Yunnan red/black tea, with rose petals, which gives a lovely – but not overpowering – hint of rose in with the freshness and clarity of the Yunnan) and any of the Pu Erh blends. I’m also a huge fan of the Yogi range, and favour their sweet chili infusion, as it has a wonderful punch of spearmint and a subtle hint of the spice in the background.

    I don’t take milk in my tea either; I haven’t done for years 🙂

    • Hi, thanks for your comments. I will have to google Chinalife tea their black rose sounds lovely. I must try some Yogi tea as others have recommended this as well. I really fancy the sweet chilli following your description. I gave a lemonade instead right now.

    • Thanks for stopping by. I’ve not heard of stash teas. Their chai and orange spice found nice. I am often unable to have caramel due to being dairy free. Thank you for your suggestions.

      • I am also dairy free- I have no issue with the caramel tea. It’s shows in their website as a flavor. Of course you may react differently. I’m always looking for new teas since I can’t drink coffee. Any you can recommend?

      • Oh thank you for that information. I like Pukka teas especially their three mint tea. Twinings earl and lady grey are great to have without milk. A surprise discovery for me was Sainsbury’s blackcurrant a real comforting tea. I’ve also sampled some of Bluebird Tea Co teas and these have all been enjoyable. I hope this helps C 😊.
