I have a confession to make… I might have a slight obsession with herbal teas. I love trying all of the new flavours and learning about the health benefits of the herbs within them.
I was recently made aware of a new tea *Teapigs Spiced Winter Red Tea. I haven’t tried Teapigs tea before so I was keen to give it a go. I love anything spiced so this sounded right up my street.
Spiced Winter Red Tea
Here’s what Louise the tea taster from Teapigs says about this tea…
“We think we’ve captured the best bits of winter with this one – mulled wine, mistletoe, winter coats and rosy cheeks. Log fires, happy cats and old movies on the telly. Tea and warming spices. This tea also makes a yummy wintery caffeine free latte – orange, cloves and cinnamon on a red tea base, perfect on a crisp, frosty morning”.
How To Brew the Tea
Since I have really started to get into my tea I have realised that different types of teas require different preparation methods. Some of my loose leaf teas need to be steeped for at least 5 minutes whereas others only take 2 minutes.
Before you make a your tea always read the instructions for the best steeping method to really make the most of your tea.
When I read the instructions of how best to brew this tea I was surprised to find that Teapigs suggest that you have it with milk! I’d never had a herbal tea with milk before so I was quite intrigued to find out what that tasted like.
“How we like it
Milky – caffeine free, super spicy. Or add brandy for a totally festive brew”.
I have to say that this tea is really lovely! It’s like Christmas in a mug. It’s definitely a great winter warming drink. I tried it both with milk and without and it tastes great either way.
What I Liked About the Spiced Winter Red Tea
- The tea temples or bags are biodegradable so can go straight into your compost
- You have the option to have it with milk or without
- It’s naturally caffeine free
- Tastes like Christmas in a mug!
- You can add alcohol for an extra festive touch
How Much Does it Cost
The Teapig teas certainly aren’t cheap but you do get what you pay for! A lot of people don’t know this but the tea they drink is actually made up of ‘Tea Dust‘ which is basically just the leftover sweepings from the factory floor that get bagged up and made into tea bags. Gross right!
With tea you really should consider paying a bit of extra money to get the best quality and ensure you’re not drinking the leftovers.
Give it a Go
If you fancy a festive tea this Christmas and you like your herbal teas I’d definitely recommend that you give it a go. As well as the Spiced Winter Red tea, *Teapigs also have a variety of other flavours so it’s worth having a look around for a taste you might like.
