True Tea Company – Spiced Apple Cider Tea🍂

What is better than drinking cider and being able to drive after or no hangover the next day?

Look no further the True Tea Company’s Spiced Apple Cider tea is perfect for both above. This tea is perfect for Christmas time, which is fast approaching, smelling just like mulled cider but without the alcohol.

About This Flavour:

This flavour is very sweet and has a strong apple and cinnamon taste. These tea leaves include cinnamon spice, apple slices, whole star anise and hibiscus creating a spiced winter infusion. This is perfect if you like a fruit tea with a spicy kick from the cinnamon. Another benefit is, unlike drinking alcoholic cider this tea has very little calories and sugar included.

Our Review:

From opening the packet the strong smell of the cinnamon and whole star aniseed fills the room. Compared to other tea leaves this flavour includes larger ingredient pieces providing a very pretty arrangement of ingredients perfect to photograph. After adding a selection of the tea leaves into the teapot, boiling water and brewed for around 5 minutes this created a beautiful deep red, warm colour and smelt delicious!

The flavour of this tea is very sweet fruity taste of apple along with a kick from the cinnamon creating that spicy flavour. Also, the infusion from the whole star anise pieces leaves a slight aniseed aftertaste.

We would definitely recommend this flavour for the Christmas/winter season as it’s an ideal winter warmer for those cold, dark nights with a Christmas aroma.

Tea Shirt London’s G&T Tea☕️🍂🍃🍸

If you’re a fan of the summer drink, Gin & Tonic why don’t you try the Winter edition, a cup of G&T tea!

At first we thought: ‘how do they go together’ but how wrong we were, this is our favourite winter drink this year. From ice cold to boiling hot this drink is perfect for a relaxing time. The cold, winter nights are closing in on us and there is nothing better than a cosy night with a hot drink – this is that drink.

Our Review:

Once our parcel arrived we couldn’t wait to get this brewing in the teapot and try! As soon as you get the boiling water on the leaves the sweet smell of lemons hits the air. This white tea defuses a beautiful aroma. Don’t worry about the Gin being too strong this is like a perfect cocktail but can drive after several drinks. 😉

This tea has many different flavours from the zingy taste of the citrus fruits to the tangy lemon that hits your tongue. The infusion of the white tea still hangs in the flavour to counteract that tangy, sweet taste of the fruits to give you that difference between the gin and the tonic water.

You can’t go wrong with this tea whether you prefer it boiling hot to warm you up or as an ice cold brew to relax with! We definitely recommend it.

Twinings Pomegranate & Raspberry Fruit Tea☕️

Whether you’re a tea lover or not, this product is worth a try!

About Fruit Teas:

Fruit teas are very good for you to drink. This flavoured Twinings fruit tea has only 4 calories, yes, only 4!! These tea bags have no sugar or caffeine and can express the natural fruits flavours leaving a sweet and refreshing taste. Fruit teas are like warm fruit juice but without the calories, sugar and the use of unprocessed natural fruit.

Fruit teas are high in Vitamin C and full of antioxidants which keep your immune system strong and healthy!

Our Review:

We have found to get the best infusion let a normal sized mug brew for 3 minutes!

Twinings Pomegranate and Raspberry fruit tea gives off a nice aroma which matches the equally nice taste. It has an exotic taste with a mixture of an tangy Pomegranate and sweet Raspberry flavours. Fruit tea can be drunk hot or cold and still both taste good – whether to cool down or for a cosy warm night in. We found changing that morning coffee before work to a cup of fruit tea still gives you that energy boost and sets you up for the day ahead.

We recommend trying Twinings fruit teas and swapping these for your daily caffeine boost.

We would love to hear about your experience.
