TEA: Teapigs

Hey everyone :)

Hope you are all well and enjoying the the week so far! I'm on a bit of a tea binge at the moment and a couple of weeks ago I bought some tea from Teapigs - they are still a youngish company (coming up for 10 years this November) but they are a very well known company - you can find them online (like I did) or in supermarkets such as Sainsburys and even in restaurants like Wagamama.

The company was started by 2 people - Nick and Louise whom both worked for a large tea company. They realised that there was a whole world of quality teas that weren't getting the recognition and attention they deserved and so ... Teapigs was born.

They have a range of different flavoured teas available, they also have matcha and also cups, mugs, infusers, teapots and different gift sets too. The tea is available in different sizes such as 2, 15, 50 and you can also buy loose too (not all flavours have all the sizes so check that first).

I decided to purchase the little sample boxes as I didn't want to buy a flavour I have never tried and then have lots leftover. These were £1.30 each. So these were the five I picked up:

Super Fruit

Ingredients: Hibiscus, elderberries, currants, blackcurrants, natural flavouring, cranberries, blueberries

Everyday Brew 

Ingredients: Black tea

Peppermint Leaves

Ingredients: Pure peppermint leaves

Chai Tea

Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cassia, cardamom pods, natural cinnamon flavouring, vanilla

Darjeeling Earl Grey 

Ingredients: Black tea, cornflowers, natural bergamot flavouring

To drink the tea you just add 1 bag to a cup of boiling water and steep for about 3 mins and then you can drink. I prefer flavoured teas without milk but my normal everyday brew tea I have with milk.

Teapig also suggest having it iced which I have never done - the flavoured ones that is! So I might try this with the leftover teabags I have!!

Let me know in the comments what flavour of tea you enjoy - do you like it plain or do you prefer a lovely, scented flavoured tea?
