For this blend Framework Wellness Tea uses : Ingredients: Organic Rosehips, Organic Blackberry Leaves, Organic Lemon Verbena, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Chamomile, Organic Orange Peel, Natural Passion Fruit Flavouring.

Let’s get brewing!

Whilst brewing the aroma completely changes . Unlike in its dry state where you were only really able to identify prominently the camomile, once emersd per within the hot water the fruity citrus notes start to really sing. Especially the passion fruit flavourings.

Considering the ingredients within the blend I was shocked of the brewed liquid. With the rosehips and blackberry I was expecting more of a pinky purple but with the camomile within the blend its brewed yellow instead.

Let’s get sipping!

Wow first sip is just tealicious! I was not expecting this tea to be so punchy with its flavour. It has added levels of flavour depth. From the lemon, orange and passion fruit being the initial hit of a beauTEAful fruit cocktail, followed by the berryness of blackberry and rosehip and lastly its the turn of the camomile to sing adding to an almost after taste yet not an after thought! It provides a balanced level to the tea and almost cleanses the pallet ready for the next sip. Which I am more than ready for, it certainly tickles the taste buds.

This tea has actually really surprised me. I do feel very refreshed and can feel myself relaxing by its comforting flavour and aroma it entices the senses and almost has soothing qualities. Perfect if you’ve had a hard day or just need a moment of calm.

Happy Sipping 🙂

Nisi – Camomile and Lavender

Time for Tea Please?

Nisi is a tea company based in Greece. They are a natural tea and herbs specialists. Focusing on the beneficial properties of Greek nature without any chemicals. Using the purity and potency of herbal healing. Nisi believes that sipping tea can be more than just a pleasure to sip on but also have many health benefits.

Today I’m sipping on two of their ingredients to make my own blend. Their Camomile and Lavender.

Their Camomile tea is grown in Greece and tends to have a more sweet and earthy taste to it compared to camomile grown in other countries. As its produced locally it allows Nisi to know that due to the nutrient rich grounds it’s grown in allows extra strength within the ingredients.
As I like to drink my camomile primarily in the evening Nisi suggested to add some lavender to the blend, which I’m going to give a try. Like the camomile its locally sourced/grown in highly, nutritious soil for the best yield.

Let’s get brewing !

IMG_3481
In my infuser I firstly filled it with camomile, of which smelt super powerful in its flavour and I’m very much hoping it tastes that way too. I then popped it in the mug and filled it with water. I then added in two sprigs of lavender and left it for a few minutes to infuse.

While brewing the aroma intensified with the richness of the camomile and the lavender it was mixing together perfectly and was certainly getting the taste buds going.

After brewing I removed the lavender and the infuser and was left with a light yellow brewed liquid.

First sip and wowzer what a punch !

The camomile taste just shines through. Due to the naturalness of the dried camomile its flavour is very strong. It may even be the the strongest tasting camomile I’m yet to try. The flavour is so pure and rich it really is a taste sensation.

With the use of the two sprigs of lavender it provides a perfect side balance. It’s just enough to allow the lavender to add a delicate flavour to the sip so that it doesn’t over power the camomile. It works in harmony with up the camomile adding a further floral undertone.

Combined together the camomile and lavender just works. The richness and strength of the blend is just amazing and will knock your socks off. Yet it also has a pure smoothness which adds further pleasure to the sipping experiences which just exquisite. Wether this down to the pureness of the ingredients or some magical Greek goodness!

Happy Sipping 🙂

Tick Tock – Bedtime

Time for Tea Please?

A major part of my evening routine is a nice mug of caffeine free tea. Especially if the tea has properties that may help me sleep better. Today I’m trying Bedtime by Tick Tock . Which is part of their new wellbeing range. Isn’t the packaging just cute? it certainly caught my attention on the supermarket tea shelf.

IMG_8956

For this tea Tick Tock blends: Camomile, apple, rooibos, honeybush, lemon balm, liquorice, lavender, aniseed, blackberry leaves.

The idea behind the tea is the blending of ingredients to provide a relaxing and unwinding experience in preparation for bed time.

Upon opening the tea pouch you are instantly able to hit with the floral notes of the lavender with a mixture of the distinct Rooibos tea along with a slight aniseed tang.

Let’s get brewing!

IMG_8959

The aroma whilst brewing isn’t too dissimilar from that of its dried, other than the smell of lemon balm.

I wasn’t too sure what colour the brewed liquid of the tea would be. The reasoning behind this being that a Rooibos based tea tends to have a brownie red tinge to it. With the mix of the other ingredients is has more of a yellowy brown tinge to it.

IMG_8961

First sip is intriguing.

There isn’t exactly one ingredient that screams out louder than another one. Instead it’s an intriguing mix of all the flavours. There are times when the lavender, lemon balm and aniseed have a stronger taste than others. Which was slightly disappointing considering I love a camomile and Rooibos based tea.

However I don’t know wether it’s because I know it’s meant to be a bed time tea but I can certainly feel myself becoming slightly more relaxed while sipping on it. Hopefully the same desired effect will help you also.

Clipper – Sleep Easy

Time for Tea Please?
There’s nothing more than I love than having a relaxing mug of tea at the end of the day. My go to brew tends to be camomile based as its known for its calming techniques. One of my all time favourites bed time tea has got to be Clippers – Sleep Easy.

What I love about this tea is that it is naturally flavoured with orange as well as being blended with chamomile, cinnamon and valerian and together is a perfect match. Through the natural ingredients within the tea can help promote a healthy sleep.

I always leave the tea bag in when drinking camomile as there’s just something nice about it getting stronger as you sip a mug of bedtime bliss!

Twinings – Camomile and Honey

Time for Tea Please?

It’s night time again and therefore camomile time!

Tonight’s is Twinings Camomile and Honey

IMG_1860.JPG

Camomile tea is naturally caffeine free with no added sugar! In this tea blend twinings use their honey to naturally sweeten and flavour the camomile pollen heads used within the tea bag.

What more could need to relax on a cold autumn night to unwind and warm up.

I always leave my teabag In to brew for the whole duration of my mug of tea to allow the flavours to intensify. If you are after a light sweet flavour allow you’re tea to brew for around 3 minutes but like me if you prefer a stronger flavour leave the teabag in longer.

Enjoy !
