Mmm, tea. Mmm, winter.
I’ve been asked by the lovely folks at teapigs to do another tea review! And this time, they’ve sent me their spiced winter red tea, which has “the best bits of winter”, apparently! It has a cute wee description on the back.
The first thing to say is that it smells divine.
It tastes slightly sweet, a bit spicy and very warming. You can taste the orange, the cinnamon and the cloves, and it does indeed remind me of Christmas. It’s so nice to have all the festivity break up these dark months.
I also love their wee tea bags. So much nicer than what you normally get tea in!
Steeping it for a good few minutes makes all the difference, too. You watch the water turn a lovely golden colour and everyone around you asks what the tea is. I’m definitely going to share it around my colleagues before the Christmas break. In fact, that’s my colleague’s mug up there. Cute.
If you’d like to try some or anything else from their Christmas shop, you can check it all out here. teapigs are also offering a lovely 20% off using the code XMAS13. The code is valid until the end of December and excludes cheeky deals, mix & match and match kits.
