Me and my tea…….

pot-of-tea-200x150

Establishing my love for Caffeine Free and Fruit Tea has been something I seem to have done successfully. To say I am a bit of an addict to new varieties and tastes is an understatement.

My caffeine free story was one I shared with you a couple of months ago but drinking “normal” tea gives me extreme migraines, so touching tea with it in is simply not worth it.

I love my Peppermint tea and drink that like it is going out of fashion, however I do like a change a couple of times a day because sometimes Peppermint does just not hit the spot.

When I came across Bluebird Tea Co, I was so excited to see their range and was not disappointed by the tea and products that they produce and supply.

The advent calendar drew me in and from there the rest is history. Obviously, the Calender was not an option for me but having spoke to Bluebird’s amazing team we sorted an amazing array of teas for me to try and I was hyper when my delivery arrived.

In the box there was a fantastic selection of teas for all of the family. These included:

Snowball Tea Bauble

Strawberry Lemonade

Rhubarb and Custard

Mulled Cider

Birthday Cake

Pineapple and Mint

Gingerbread Chai

Lets start at the very beginning….

The boys were desperate to get in to the Bauble and try the Snowball Tea.

This tea contains in amongst the Black Tea, marshmallows, chocolate pieces, cacao bean and coconut. I didn’t get to try this one as it contained tea but it smelt amazing and I am judging by the now empty bauble that the boys enjoyed it too.

OMG….I fell in love with the Strawberry Lemonade Tea.

“Bluebird’s best selling fantastically fruity tea infusion that tastes as good as it smells!”

It is recommended for both Hot and Chilled drinking but I enjoyed it the most when it was hot. The flavour of not only the main ingredients comes through but the elderberry and orange a subtly there too, its amazing and you really get the Strawberry Lemonade taste. I found it very comforting to drink and it kept me going for a few shifts at work.

High from that one I moved on to the Rhubarb and Custard and was equally blown away.

If I could do scratch and sniff for you this would be a post that would most certainly benefit from it. The smells when you open the pouches of tea are amazing.

Being alcohol free at the minute means the likes of Mulled Wine and Mulled Cider are off the menu, but the Mulled Cider tea brings Christmas in a teapot. The aroma is simply divine. I can try with all my might to explain it too you, the closest I can get is by saying, “Christmas in a Tea Pot”.

“Vanilla sponge, notes of sweet icing + cake sprinkles!”

Birthday Cake…..Tea that tastes and smells like cake. Is that really possible?

With this one having Black Tea in I didn’t get a try but the smell was amazing, the fine detail of the sprinkles makes it all the more appealing on the eye and adds a special touch. The boys tried this one too and told me it was fabulous.

Another OMG moment when it comes to the Pineapple and Mint. I wasn’t sure on the combination at first but it caught my eye first on the website. I love pineapple and had never tried a pineapple tea before.

This one was an amazing follow up to the Strawberry Lemonade tea when I ran out of that. It has a very light and refreshing taste. Like the Strawberry one this can be drank either Hot or Cold but personally I prefer it hot. You can really taste the fruit and the Mint is subtle yet very much there. (Saying that I prefer it hot, I think this is because it is winter. I can see both of these teas being lovely served over ice with a touch of something alcoholic to add an extra punch in the summer, being lovely)

Then there is the Gingerbread Chai.

I have only had one pot of this and I shared it with family. It was lovely and so warming. Who doesn’t love gingerbread so close to Santa coming? The flavour that you are promised from the ginger is there, again it is not overpowering and truly a delight to drink.

In fear of repeating myself, Bluebird Tea Co. make some simply amazing products. Not only are their products amazing but so are the team behind them. Nothing is a problem and as a company they have been a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for letting me sample your delights…
