Lets talk about tea

One of the things you may or may not know about me, is that I love tea.  Yep I like the usual assam and English breakfast, but my favourites are flavoured tea and herbal tea.  So I thought I'd talk about tea today :)

camomile tea

My first love is camomile tea - I used to drink this all the time when I was younger and it wasn't until there was a sachet of the Teapigs camomile flowers tea in a beauty box that I rediscovered it.  So after that I went out and bought a big box of it :)  The trick with Teapigs is to buy a big box of them, otherwise each teabag works out to be nearly 50p each, if you buy a big box is less than half of that :)  The big bag on the right is loose camomile flowers from Harrods - I know that sounds really expensive, but it's actually the same price as that box of teapigs on the left, and there's a hell of a lot more of it!

Chai tea and latte
A recent discovering of mine is Chai tea, if you're looking for it in a cafe, the best (in my opinion) is Cafe Nero - I think they use the same powder (Drink me chai) as above.  If you're not familiar with Chai, it tastes a lot like cinnamon :) I've even taken to making it at home just like they do in Cafe Nero, warmed milk, powder whisked in and a shot of vanilla syrup, it's so yummy I've been drinking one while sat here typing this :)

Peppermint tea
 Next up - Peppermint tea - boy oh boy is the Teapigs one amazing!  Quite strong (strong in peppermint, not 'tea' flavour if you know what I mean?) - you can get a couple of cups out of 1 teabag too.  The tassimo strawberry/rose tea is really lovely too - I love that Tassimo (who primarily make coffee) have thought of other things as well as coffee.

Twinings green tea

These?  these are my work tea's.  My favourite by far is the pomegranate green tea - especially if it's mixed with some runny honey - the two go so well together.  The mango & lychee tea is lovely too - the peach is probably the most 'green tea' tasting of the lot, still lovely though.

I hope you liked this different kind of post today - what's your favourite kind of tea?
