Things I Love: Teapigs
The lovely folk over at Teapigs were kind enough to send me some of their delicious new tea flavours to feature here on the site, and I’m really excited to share them with you!
Each of these new teas is seriously lush, and Teapigs itself is just such an amazing company. It was started back in 2006 by a couple of fantastic folks called Nick (self-proclaimed tea evangelist) and Louise (she’s consumed tea all over the world). Since then, Teapigs has grown to become one of the best loved and most respected independent brands in the UK. I absolutely adore it.
Sweet Treat: Liquorice and Peppermint
The key to this first blend is in the name: Teapigs have combined pure liquorice root with whole peppermint leaves, creating a naturally sweet and refreshing drink that is irresistibly moreish. And, if you fancy a cup before bedtime, these yummy little tea temples contain no caffeine at all, so you can relax in your PJs and sleep easy.
Fab Japanese Treat: Popcorn Tea
This has to be the weirdest concept for tea ever, but luckily, it’s definitely at the weird and wonderful end of the spectrum. Made from green tea and toasted rice, the history of this blend comes from Japan, where peasants used to mix the two ingredients together so that their tea supply lasted longer. Teapigs call it Popcorn Tea, but it’s also known as Genmaicha tea in Japan.
Lazy Days: Lemon and Ginger
Refreshing lemon with a ginger kick, this infusion is inspired by traditional British things: homemade lemonade, proper old-fashioned ginger beer, croquet and morris dancers (apparently). Straightforward but mouthwatering flavours, this one’s also completely caffeine free!
