I’m an avid herbal tea drinker, I have such a varied selection in my home and I love trying out new and exciting tea blends.
There is a huge variety of herbal teas available to suit various palates with many health benefits. I just love discovering and experiencing healing herbs.
I avoid caffeine and many herbal teas are either low in or caffeine-free which is great for me.
When it comes to choosing teas my personal preference is the loose variety. I find they have a more intense and fuller flavour with a fresher, clean taste. When you infuse loose tea in hot water, the water is able to easily flow through the herbs and leaves extracting the nutrients, flavours and aroma.
I have a Sage Tea Maker and I find when I brew my tea and need a refill I can just add more water and steep the tea again. This tends to give me a stronger, more flavourful cup of tea. Another added benefit is my tea blend will last longer giving me more value for money.
I’ve tried a few blends from Beauty Brews Organic Teas and I love the quality of the teas. I decided to choose two new ones to try out.
Both teas have the perfect base of Rooibos tea which is rich in minerals that help boost the immune system. It contains calcium, iron, potassium, copper, manganese, magnesium, zinc and alpha hydroxy acid. It is also high in anti-oxidants and contains 50% more antioxidants than green tea. It is rich in polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties.
Hygge Orange & Cinnamon Tea is named after the famous Danish idea of creating a nice, cosy atmosphere and enjoying the simple things in life with good people around you. It contains rooibos tea which is free from caffeine and low in tannins and has a high mineral content.
The orange peels are rich in flavonoids and taste and together with the cinnamon and apple add seasonal spice to the mix. A tea to relax with friends and family during the long winter months!
First of all this tea smells so…..good. The scent is aromatic, warm and spicy. The taste is delicious….. fruity apple bits, citrus flavour of orange, aromatic, uplifting and warming cinnamon, perfectly balanced with the honey-like floral sweetness from Rooibos.
It’s the perfect blend for these cold winter days, really comforting. Any excuse to grab a blanket, a good book and just chill with my lovely cuppa.
This tea is unique and definitely my favourite. I just love the earthy, spicy and fruity scent. It is a wonderful mix of honey-like floral Rooibos, citrusy orange, deliciously fruity apple, aromatic and spicy cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, woody and citrus lemongrass, calming Vervain and Chamomile. It’s the perfect calming and relaxing tea that I particularly like just before bedtime. It tastes refreshing and delicious as well.
I absolutely love these teas and will purchase the refills when I run out.
