Due to the fact that I am deathly allergic to caffeine, I'm always trying to find some sort of replacement for my tea cravings. I've tried herbal teas before but the taste of them has always been too wishy-washy for me, half of the time it's just like drinking hot water - not nice. So when on Friday my Mum asked whether I wanted to top up my fruit/herbal tea collection I wasn't very excited. That is until we found Teapigs.
I'd heard about Teapigs before, convinced that I'd read great reviews about these teas on various other blogs I picked up a caffeine free tea called Super Fruit, which claims it is bursting with actual berries which gives a really fruity taste.
When I got home I made myself a brew. The first thing I noticed is that the tea is packaged in an almost silk like bag, such a lovely effect. Inside you can see that the tea is a loose tea, with actual pieces of berries and fruit in there, no typical tea powders in sight! It also smelt delicious!
The packet recommends leaving the tea to brew in the cup for 3 minutes. I am not a patient person, but chose to follow the guidelines (in fact I actually just left the bag in whilst I drank it because I like my tea to be extra strong).
This tea is absolutely gorgeous, and actually has a real taste to it. It's so delicious and refreshing and has really made me love fruit/herbal teas again. I know that I will purchase this tea again, and probably some more types from the Teapigs range as I was just so impressed!
These teas are retailing at £5 in Tesco and Asda, but you can buy online here for slightly cheaper.
