teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea




teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea* - £4.49

Nothing gets me in the festive mood more than some seasonal food & drink. So I was rather excited to hear that teapigs make a tea with claims of being like 'Christmas in a cup'. I couldn't have described their Spiced Winter Red tea better myself! The tea temples contain rooibos tea, orange peel, ginko, orange blossom, cinnamon, ginseng root, cloves & safflower. Each packet comes with 15 tea temples so there'll be plenty of cups for all of your Christmas visitors. The taste is simply wonderful. It's spicy, sweet, warming & comforting - perfect for curling up on the sofa with on a cold Winter night. As you may know I love anything with cinnamon in & I often drink some cinnamon tea at night to reduce my cravings for sweet stuff. It's all too easy to binge on a whole box of chocolates at this time of year so drinking a tea like this one is a good way of keeping off those pesky holiday pounds. Rooibos tea is naturally caffeine free so you don't have to worry about it keeping you up at night either.

This tea also smells totally amazing. It's quite a powerful spicy scent that hits you as soon as you open up the packet. I remember being in year 5 at school and we made oranges stuffed with cloves as Christmas presents. The scent of this tea is exactly like those pomanders & for me that's the ultimate nostalgic Christmas smell. The Spiced Winter Red tea is truly versatile. You can have it simply brewed with water, with a splash of milk or my favourite method is to add a shot of brandy to turn it into a festive punch. Alcohol at Christmas is always a winner!
