Time for Tea Please?
Thanks to the lovelies at TeaTeas Gifts for sending me a sample of their Masala Chai to try.
* Self-love, self-care & body positiviTea.*
Absolutely love TeaTeas headline and couldn’t agree with it more.
Direct from website: We want everyone to feel beautiful inside and out, so we made some little cozy treats to boost our wellbeing and self-esteem.
The more good stuff we put in our cuppa, the better we’ll feel, so we decided to ditch the powdered chai from the shelf full of sugar and additives, and make our Chai from authentic whole spice…and that’s it!
You may have been able to guess not just from the from the brand name and their packaging TeaTeas is also raising awareness and funds for breast cancer charities.

As soon as you open the tea pouch you are engulfed with spices warming your senses and enticing you. It’s rich sweet cinnamon and aniseed being the main aromas in your face.
For this blend TeaTeas uses a mixed spiced tea blend. It’s a secret blend which is fair enough but doesn’t it look BeauTEAful.
Let’s get Brewing
Whilst brewing the aroma of the tea doesn’t massively change, it’s tones are slightly more peppery and the aniseed has now mellowed out.
As with most teas that contain black tea in the brewed liquid is of a brown colouring. The liquid may look a bit a strange to some of you but I live in a hard water area.
Let’s get Sipping
First sip is just tealicious. From the strength of the dried tea , to it mellowing whilst brewing I wasn’t sure what to expect but the blend is magic.
All the flavours work together rather than fighting against each other for your attention. By this happening it makes the tea sip sip just calming. The spiced aspects of the blend adds an extra warm ness and is like drinking a hug in a mug.
It’s not till the after sip of the tea that you get a peppery aniseed punch. Which injects an extra added heat to each mouthful.
The only downside to this blend was that my mug just wasn’t big enough !
Happy Sipping 🙂
