Happy Sunday morning!
I don’t know about you but we love tea, all types and flavours and we love trying new ones even more.
I’ve always been a big fan of TK Maxx and Home Sense but recently I’ve found myself going there more often and particularly to the food and book section. You can never go wrong with buying books and tea right? It’s like they are made for each other!
I’ve seen the English Tea Shop brand quite a lot and so decided to give some of their blended teas a try. Today’s post is about their Organic Detox Me tea, but rest assured I also have 2 other flavours to tell you all about – I just can’t help myself and keep going back!
The Detox Me tea contains Peppermint, Spearmint, Elderflowers, Fenugreek and Rosemary, and the box contains 16 pyramid style tea bags.
I’ve been loving trying loose leaf teas recently but sometimes it’s great to be able to ust grab the tea bag and let it infuse without messing around with measuring it out.
This tea you simply need to add to boiling water water and infuse for 2/3 minutes, and then maybe add some sugar if you think it is necessary. I didn’t need to add any sugar at all and I really liked the refreshing taste.
Sometimes the detox type teas can smell and taste a bit vile, or contain a large amount of licorice and green tea, or even give you some undignified side effects (we’ve all tried those teas by now I’m sure!).
I didn’t find I had any of those with this tea and found it quite refreshing due to the mint. You can see the colour of the tea in the image below, served in one of my favourite Alice in Wonderland mugs from Whittards. I have the full set of these mugs thanks to some lush relatives, definitely have the tea pot on my list for Christmas though as it is also gorgeous (it’s not too early for the C word right?!)
I have quite a few teas in my collection now as you can see by my shrine in the image above- maybe you think I’m obsessive but I just love trying out different types!
This particular tea cost me around £2.50 from Home Sense, but is available from Amazon for £5.82 at the time of posting. They aren’t cheap but really worth it for the quality of the taste and the blends. They have quite a few I would love to try and the Peppermint Loose Leaf tea is a firm favourite of mine anyway – it lives on my wishlist for future repurchasing!
Have you tried anything from the English Tea Shop? Do you have any flavour recommendations?
Are you a loose leaf or a bag fan?? I think each have their time and place!
