We know our teas taste great. But don't just take our word for it. Here's what others are saying...
Tea with rachael
At home, I’ve been working my way through the impressively vast O-Teas range of teas, from various different favourite black tea blends, such as English Breakfast and Earl Grey, and some fab herbal blends that really helped soothe my sore chest and sinuses while suffering from the lurgy – a variety of tasty ginger tea blends and an organic lemon and rosemary tea that was exactly what I needed! I was also delighted to try Santa’s Little Helper – a comforting blend of black tea with cinnamon – and would happily drink this all year round! Festive!
I’m well known for my love of tea and trying new blends, so I was delighted when the lovely people at OTeas wrote to me to tell me about their range. And what a range it is, featuring some of my favourites including Earl Grey and Moroccan Mint as well as some fruit, herbal and green teas, plus a detox collection.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been enjoying making my way through the OTeas range, including their 14 Day Detox Teas. My somewhat haphazard mission to be healthier and embrace cleaner eating is something I’ve spoken about before, so I thought these teas might just help me stay on the right path. There’s a daytime tea and a night time one, each with different ingredients to help cleanse your body. The night time blend was my favourite with pleasant citrus notes that made for a soothing evening drink. I’m always looking for new options to keep me caffeine free in the evenings, usually I choose hot water and lemon, so the OTeas night time detox blend made for a nice change. Drinking the teas seems to have had a positive impact, I feel better and they’ve certainly been setting me up on the right track for the day and encouraging me to unwind and prioritise sleeping in the evenings.
Jam & Clotted Cream
O-Teas, a UK based speciality tea company, sent me some of their tea range to sample recently (I'm in love with their ginger tea which is so warming) and challenged me to use their Earl Grey tea in one of my recipes, hence these Chocolate Pots were born. This quintessentially British tea is typically a black tea, flavoured with oil from the rind of a bergamot orange. If you didn't know, bergamot is an intensely flavoured citrus fruit somewhere between the flavour of an orange and lemon, with a little grapefruit thrown in for good measure....and it works very well with chocolate!.
The pyramid shaped bags make them ideal for infusing flavour and I used a couple of the tea bags to infuse the cream and milk, which forms the base of the chocolate pots. Once the cream had reached boiling point I whipped the tea bags out and poured the hot cream over the chocolate (I used half milk and half dark chocolate) to melt it. Doing it this way gave the Chocolate Pots a lovely subtle hint of earl grey flavour but if you wanted a stronger taste I would empty the contents of the tea bags into the cream then strain it through a sieve once the cream has come to the boil.
It's Sarah Ann
What better way to finish up a picnic than to go home to a nice - a VERY nice - cup of tea. They sent us an assortment of different teas to pop into the goody bags from Darjeeling to Green, Oriental to Fruity, Rooibos to Herbal, so many amazing flavours. I sipped up my Wellness Sleepwell tea in minutes and it was absolutely beautiful, I'm definitely going to have to get myself a pack.
