I received these sample packs of tea in the post. I was actually expecting them to be from local Devon tea blender, Tea's Me (I have long been a fan of their wonderful lavender-scented Tottea that claims to 'restore your inner angel'), but these turned out to be from Squeeze Me, based in Northamptonshire, under the brand name Teas Me (with no apostrophe). Confused? I was a bit.
I'm a big fan of 'Chai' teas so I was very keen to try this one as my local supply of Dragonfly Cape Malay Chai Roibos has dried up (anyone know why?). The see-through pouch was very snazzy - lovely to see all the colourful components of the tea and have a resealable pouch too. Sometimes my tea gets stashed away in some tin at the back of the cupboard and I only find it months later. The brew is exactly as described 'warm and comforting' with a big cinnamon kick. I really liked it.
I tried the Earl Grey flavour today in my brand new ForLife kermit green teapot that A and D bought me. It wasn't as 'in your face' and powerfully bergamoty or floral as some Earl Greys, but that's no bad thing. Liked the fact it was blended with bright yellow sunflower petals. Oh, and loved my new teapot.
The Tea sachets cost £3.99 each for 100g loose leaf tea. I almost forgot the pun! Guns 'n' Roses, I never thought I'd reference you on my food blog, you are so far off my radar but I just can't help it...Oh-ohhhh, sweet chai-aii of miii-iiine....
