I am loving tea at the moment. It is such a great hug in a mug during the colder weather. I have just noticed that I obviously really like tea as I seem to have written 3 other blog posts on tea in the last couple of years. I only got into tea a few years ago and I am rather picky with what I like. I don’t drink “builders tea”/”English tea” and I don’t drink coffee so herbal tea is definitely my thang. My current favourites are really yummy and very importantly taste as good as they smell. I thought I would share them with you as they are making me happy each day.
HEATH & HEATHER
How insanely pretty are the designs on these boxes! I love the pretty decoration and unlike normal I haven’t decanted the teabags into my big jar of tea but have had to keep them in these pretty boxes.
CHAMOMILE & SPEARMINT
This is my current absolute favourite tea. I have fallen in love with the flavour of this tea. If you don’t like chamomile tea in general, much like my hubby, you will like this. The mint overpowers the chamomile and even though I like chamomile tea, I prefer this…sooo good. This tea is a great calming tea and perfect if you are feeling at all anxious.
RELAXING NIGHT TIME
I have tried valerian tablets in the past with mixed experiences (read my thoughts here). Even though valerian tablets are a little bit strong for me, I really wanted to have valerian to help me sleep. This tea doesn’t smell or taste as foul as valerian normally does. I love this tea. It’s quite faint in flavour but reminds me of a weak chamomile tea which I really enjoy. If you are looking for a simple sleeping aid, try this tea.
I have loved Pukka teas for quite a long time ago but my absolute favourite, the match mint is quite hard to find. I have only managed to find it in health food shops but not in Waitrose?
MINT MATCHA GREEN
In general matcha tea can be a little bit bitter and earthy to taste. If you find that you don’t like the flavour but are desperate to have matcha in your life then this is the tea for you. It is simply delicious. If you want to know a little bit more about matcha in general then check out my blog on ‘Why Is Everyone Talking About Matcha?’. The scent of the mint is so yummy. It’s almost like the mint flavour at the beginning of a tic-tac. Yum yum yum.
Last month Liam won a hamper from Jasmine Hemsley and it was filled with lovely goodies but the one that really took my fancy was this Pukka Revitalise tea. This tea smells like Christmas and I find it really calming to the tummy. I don’t like cardamom in generally so it’s great that you can’t taste it. The flavour is stronger in cinnamon and ginger with some spices that make it taste a little bit like mulled wine. We only have one bag left so I need to buy some more asap.
Which tea do you most like the sound of?
