Winter’s definitely here, and although the temperature hasn’t dropped *that* severely yet, we do find ourselves fixing a brew or two extra a day than we normally would. Here is a selection of our favourite organic tea brands –
When is comes to organic tea brands my all-time #1 has to be Pukka Tea!
My new favourite Pukka tea for the winter has to be the Pukka Star Anise and Cinnamon. It’s so warming, and has some ginger thrown in for good measure! A smooth warming drink, perfect for cold winters days and nights, and for using as a base for your own chai! See my chai recipe here.
This is my favourite black tea when it comes to organic tea brands, it’s even overtaken the Clipper English Breakfast tea! It’s a lovely smooth drink, best served with milk (well I am English!) and I love how the tea label has a little thought for the day written on it – in this instance “A good cup of tea begins in delight and ends in wisdom.” I’ve just realised however that Pukka tea offer an English Breakfast which shockingly I have never tried! One to look out for on the next shop me thinks!
It was a while ago that we received this package in the post
The P & T stands for Paper & Tonic, and I love their motto –
Life is short. Drink good tea.
The packaging is beautiful – I love the texture, the expensive feel to the boxes, and of course the elephants.
The teas are all handpicked, and from the Box of Black we were sent it is very difficult to pick a favourite, but I think the Orange Valley has the edge, just!
I picked up the Chinalife Chrysanthemum and White Peony teas when I went to Acumedic for my acupuncture facial. They both have slightly more delicate flavours than I am used to, but they are refreshing and perfect for summer. The PR at Acumedic very kindly also sent me at a later date some of Chinalife’s blends, which are incredible! Firm favourites in the office at the moment, despite having to bag your own leaves! Superhero Sidekick is a green tea blend with goji berries, whilst Sweet Cheeks is white peony tea with rosebuds, lemongrass and red dates. Both are bursting with flavour, both on the tea and fruity front! Find the full tea range here.
At the end of the day, a tea to help us wind down is often in order. There are loads in the shops now, but I always go back to these two – Yogi Tea Bedtime Blend, with Fennel, Chamomile and Valerian Root, and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Herbal Tea. Just smelling the latter of these two instantly chills me out. Chamomile, spearmint, lemongrass, and rosebuds. For me, this smells of home, snuggled up on the sofa winding down at the end of the day!
