Let's Talk About Tea!

I'm not a fan of your everyday milky tea, but I love herbal teas. Let's see what's currently in my tea cupboard!
Clipper Organic Peppermint Tea, £1.45/20 teabags
Peppermint tea is a staple in my diet; it aids digestion and is really refreshing first thing in the morning. Clipper teas are certified organic, use natural ingredients and come in biodegradable, unbleached teabags. The outer packaging is recyclable. The peppermint infusion is naturally caffeine-free and contains only organically grown peppermint.
Pukka Organic Detox Tea, £2.39/20 teabags
This detox tea is also a staple in my diet; it is refreshing, calming and detoxifying. Pukka teas are certified organic, use natural ingredients and come in unbleached, biodegradable teabags. Their packaging is recyclable and the pretty illustrations on the boxes are printed with vegetable inks. This warming herbal combination is made from 100% organically grown aniseed, fennel seed, cardamom pod, licorice root, coriander seed and celery seed.
Waitrose Camomile, Limeflower & Lavender Tea, 99p/20 teabags
I bought this tea blend as I was intrigued by the lavender element and wondered if it would taste pleasant or not. This tea is part of Waitrose's healthy eating Love Life range and is very budget-friendly. The outer packaging is recyclable and the tea is naturally caffeine-free. This warming blend with subtle floral undertones contains camomile, lavender, limeflowers, lemon peel and orange peel. It's not my favourite taste, but it's not unpleasant in any way.
Whittard Baked Apple Flavour Tea, £4.75/15 teabags
Whittard offers luxury products and uses biodegradable mesh tea pyramids which are eye-pleasing and allow for the whole leaf to infuse perfectly. The outer packaging is recyclable. This caffeine-free wintery blend has a spiced apple flavour, but is a little sharp for me. The ingredients are dried and freeze-dried apple, roasted chicory root, citric acid, almonds, hazelnut brittle, baked apple flavouring, celery, cinnamon and other flavourings.
Kromland Farm Organic Rooibos Vanilla Tea, £2.69/40 teabags
Kormland Farm have been cultivating rooibos since 1902 and have since made many tea blends to enjoy. This certified organic tea is naturally caffeine-free and a natural source of antioxidants. It has a sweet, fruity taste with a hint of vanilla and the ingredients are rooibos, licorice, bourbon vanilla and natural vanilla flavour. The packaging is recyclable.
Higher Living Sweet Dreams Tea, £4.79/15 teabags
Higher Living is an independent, British, family-run company who produce luxurious teas. This naturally caffeine-free blend comes in biodegradable teapees, allowing for the best infusion. The rustic, pretty packaging is fully recyclable and the tea is certified organic. The ingredients in this sweet, calming blend are peppermint, rooibos, lavender, licorice, cinnamon, cardamom and natural caramel flavour.

What are some of your favourite teas? Do you opt for organic?

  3. Great post Emma!! You really know your teas, thanks for sharing the ones you use. A couple of those included I haven’t tried yet but really want to such as the Whittard, Kromland Farm and Higher Living ones. I liked your detailed description of each as it was helpful. I get a bit addicted to herbal teas, there’s so many nice ones to choose from. They also make really cool gifts too, I’m often buying nice ones for my family! :-) xx

    1. Thank you, Helen! So many teas, so little time, right? I'd definitely recommend trying the Higher Living one - it has a lovely subtle caramel undertone! I really want to find a tea with rhubarb in it. xxx
