If you know me at all you’ll know that if a company offers me tea… well it’s tea! We like tea a lot in my house and we drink it all throughout the day – Water and tea are my main forms of hydration. I used to drink my tea strong, two sugars and a splash of milk… but then one day I suddenly couldn’t stomach milk anymore, it made me incredibly bloated and made me feel sick. In stepped black tea. Previously I’d never liked my tea black but now I always have it that way and I just Love it.
There were lots of great tea to pick from from NutritionCentre.co.uk – various herbal offerings which would have done my stomach, or head or various other parts, a lot of good but when I saw that there was Earl Grey I was swayed. There’s a bit of a story there, you see, when we went out for tea for my ‘tea and cake’ hen do I was daring and I tried Earl Grey for the first time – I enjoyed it So so much! So when I saw the chance to get some for home I just had to (I know I could’ve picked some up from the supermarket but I forgot)
I’ve tried a few different Pukka teas, before, ones that have come in beauty boxes and the likes – I’ve always really enjoyed them as they’ve been beautifully balanced and really great quality. I actually wasn’t entirely sure what gives Earl Grey its distinctive taste but it turns out that it’s bergamot – You learn something new every day. It’s very nice to know you’re getting organic and fair trade when you go for Pukka tea too.
As I said above we love tea, we really do, but there’s something even more special when you have a delicious cup of tea on a cooler day, as the weather begins to lean towards autumn and winter I find myself wanting to curl up with a cup of tea more than ever – And this Earl Grey was just the perfect drink for doing that with.
It’s got a softer taste to a standard tea but as well as that is has a beautiful fragrant, herbal, floral sort of scent/taste to it. I wouldn’t want to drink Earl Grey with milk in (even back when I drank milk) but as a black tea its just perfect. This stuff is my special tea, now.
The people over at NutritionCentre.co.uk have some really great information regarding the benefits of 7, different, herbal teas so I said I’d be happy to share their info. It proves how naughty I was going for a basic tea, rather than anything herbal, as all of the tea on here have some really impressive qualities:
