When I got a DM on Twitter from The Kettle Shed offering me some free tea samples, I thought what a lovely gesture from them to their followers. I then found out that they also give free tea to homeless shelters for every box of tea sold, #WeGiveACup.
I took them up on their kind offer and I received two free tea bags of their new Winter tea blends, namely Eggnog and Gingerbread.
I tried the Gingerbread first. This is a blend of Rooibos, Ginger and Vanilla.
Secondly the Eggnog, a blend of Rooibos, Nutmeg and Cinnamon.
I chose to drink both without milk, but you may drink with milk if you prefer. And I infused for 3 minutes directly in the cup, using boiling water. The strength can be adjusted by either brewing for a shorter or longer time or by using a teapot and adding more water.
I find fuso bags are a good size to let the tea expand in the bag whilst infusing. And I found both were a lovely refreshing drink.
The teas currently retail at £4.49 for a box of 15 fuso bags, a very realistic 30p per cup for a premium tea.
I would certainly be happy to buy a box as a gift.
I’d love to hear your favourite tea.
