Teapigs recently got in touch asking me if I'd be interested in reviewing some of their lovely tea. I am always up for reviewing items that I am interested in but I was very honest in replying that I don't drink tea or coffee- only herbal. Yep that's a little confession of mine. No judgement please! I only drink herbal teas- green, apple, lemon and ginger and chinese tea and that's it.
I've never been a fan of the taste of regular tea or coffee which to some people just seems mad. To that inevitable question, 'cup of tea or coffee Rebecca?', I often to reply "Oh no thanks, but I'll have a glass or water or herbal tea if you have one?". Outcast! But Becky- great name! from Teapigs assured me that their spiced winter red tea was caffeine free and had lots of spices. Perfect! I'm there.
When the big box arrived earlier this week I was extremely excited about cracking it open and having a taste after reading many reviews of people saying nothing but glowing comments about it's festive taste.
I decided to whip out the best china (compliments of Jon's mum Gill!) and make a treat of it. Upon opening the box I was extremely impressed to see that the teabags themselves were the fancy kind- the proper Teapig term for this is 'Tea Temples'. I can count the amount of times I've had a temple style tea bag and they have always- and I mean ALWAYS- been the best teas I've ever had. The way the tea is brewed in the bag really does give the tea the best taste and what I love is that you can see all the ingredients in their purest form.
This tea is seriously worth a taste if you love all things Christmas'y or if you love a good fruit/ herbal tea. They also have other flavours too here I'm gonna order myself some of the chocolate flake tea next.
The spiced winter red tea is only £4.49 for 15 teabags which I think it's incredibly fantastic value for money or if you just want to give it a little sample they do smaller packs of 2 for £1.19 which I think make really lovely christmas gifts this time of year if you are on a budget. Maybe tying some decorative ribbon around the adorable little boxes? and picking up a cheap vintage china tea cup from a charity shop for nothing and voila! Which is actually what I'm planning to do for some friends who are tea lovers.
Thank you again to the lovely people at Teapigs for making this such an relaxing and enjoyable product for me to review it really has been a pleasure. Put your feet up ladies and take a sip of christmas in a cup.
