Twist Teas – J A N U A R Y – Raspberry Choc Kiss💋

Hi TWIYO🌍 readers,

Sorry we haven’t been active recently, we have been so busy with work and university! Finally got round to reviewing some new tea flavours, keep checking back for more posts😫.

First up is our first monthly tea subscription… January’s Raspberry Choc Kiss by Twist Teas.

57303305_454966031978496_3836775481873530880_n

We first met these two lovely ladies at the Great British Tea Festival and wow they sell an amazing choice of tea flavours. Even better they do a monthly subscription for only £5, where you can choose the tea flavour you want each month!☕️

To start we left the January tea on a random choice which was the Raspberry Choc Kiss, a Sri Lankan and Chinese black tea. This tea has additional hints of raspberry and hot chocolate perfect for a night of romance.

Ingredients: Sri Lankan Black Tea, Chinese Black Tea, Cocoa Nibs (9%), Cocoa Shells (7%), Rose Petals, Freeze-dried Raspberry (5%), Ashwaganda, Siberian Ginseng, Damiana and Vanilla Pieces.

  • Flavour: 7/10
  • Aroma: 6/10
  • Appearance: 10/10

We rated this tea at 77%.

This tea is a very fruity black tea, with a beautiful summer aroma. The appearance of this tea is beautiful, the bright pink/purples stand out from the black tea leaves. The aroma doesn’t linger for long, which can be a good and bad thing as it is beautiful and lovely to last long but doesn’t hang around in your living rooms for ages (if you didn’t like the smell, haha😂).

Recommended brewing time 3-5 minutes. We normally leave our tea to brew for longest time as we like ours strong but we don’t recommend leaving any longer than the 5 minutes as the raspberry within the tea can start to become very tart. We didn’t add milk but you can if you prefer to😊.

Unbleached Self-Fill Teabags by Spice Boutique☕️🍃

Hi TWIYO readers😃,

Are you a tea lover or drinker, but worried about the teabags impact on the environment?

Don’t worry Spice Boutique have got your back with their perfect solution products! No more cutting down on cups of tea per day or worrying about the negative effect teabags have on the environment!⁉️⁉️⁉️

img_1921

With Global Warming and how many products and chemical processes are effecting the environment, killing animals and habitats these should be compulsory for all brands of teabags! In the media, there is a massive push on reducing plastic and these are a great start by being plastic free.

Britain drinks a massive 165 MILLION CUPS of tea DAILY and most brands of teabags products contain plastic. What is that doing to the environment?!❌❌❌

These products are all:

  • 100% Bio-degradable
  • Unbleached (Chlorine & Dioxin free)
  • Plastic free material
  • 100% Natural cotton material used for the drawstring

Also, what about their packaging?

All packaging is recyclable!  An environmentally friendly company.♻️🌍

This company would be brilliant to work with and help any tea producing company out to start on their journey to becoming plastic free and environmental friendly! Whether they sell their products already containing loose tea leaves or even sell empty teabags alongside a tin of loose tea leaves to boost this product in the tea drinking business!☕️

Follow them on Instagram: @spice.boutique

Check out their products here!!

This company has thought of a brilliant idea and I hope to see more of these teabags in the future.

img_1927

We used ours and filled them with a range of loose tea leaves so we didn’t have to both have the same tea flavour at the same time. Also, these are perfect to suit your taste whether you like a strong or weak tea you can fill the teabag with the perfect amount of leaves for you!

What could be better than this product? It ticks all the right boxes!♻️

Thank you for reading, we hope you have taken in the important message we have tried to get across and look forward to seeing more people using this product.👍🏻

This blend is a mixture of loose tea leaves from Sri Lanka and South India and with a zesty and vibrant result. This blend is perfect for tennis lovers watching the Wimbledon. Proud to be British supporting this British family-ran company.

img_1679

Our Review:

  • Flavour: 8/10
  • Aroma: 5/10
  • Appearance: 6/10

We rated this tea at 63.3% but knowing the positive impact this company has on the atmosphere by using the biodegradable tea bags we happily rate this tea a 70%! We brewed our first tea for 3 minutes as recommended but this was weak for us. We left ours for 5 minutes and this was beautiful with a dash of milk. Lovely for sunny, summer afternoons with a florally taste and a zesty kick. Reminded us of a summer days in the garden.

Bio-degradable tea bags:

This product comes in bio-degradable silky pyramid tea bags – perfect for saving the environment.

Mazawattee Tea Company has produced a wonderful blend and we cannot wait to try their English tea next!

Spiced Orange Pekoe by Spice Kitchen Review ☕️

The name explains this drink to a T(ea)!

This zesty tasting tea comes with a spicy kick. The orange flavouring and peel with the cinnamon blend really well giving this tea a smooth, strong taste.

Ingredients: Black Tea, Cinnamon, Orange

Peel, Cloves and Natural Orange Flavouring.

Our Review:

• Flavour: 5/10

• Aroma: 7/10

• Appearance: 8/10

We rated this tea at 66.7% one of the top flavours.

This winter tea with a summer kick is perfect all year round. The cinnamon creates a more winter cup of tea vibe but with the zesty summer kick of the orange gives it that summer twist. This tea has enough flavour we didn’t add milk and brewed the tea leaves for 4 minutes.

As soon as you open the bag the aroma hits you and hangs in the air for a while after. The tea doesn’t lose its smell or flavour the whole time of drinking and even leaves a lovely weak smell in the room after. The appearance of a tea is also important and this tea has it all. Great lasting aroma, interesting taste and a beautiful appearance. The orange peel standing out against the black tea and hidden cloves popping up among the leaves. It is definitely bursting with ingredients and flavours.

The only down side is the taste can be quite bitter if left to brew for too long when the orange is left longer than required which is what we found with our first cup when left for 6 minutes.

This is our first tea taster from Spice Kitchen and we are very impressed by their creativity that creates the tea flavours they produce! We have our eye on Rose Earl Grey and Tropical Mango flavours to try next as these sound delicious and summery!

T2: Melbourne Breakfast Tea☕️

This tea is our favourite T2 tea. Before blogging we discovered T2 in Leeds and this was the first tea flavour we tried! We knew we had to purchase it. When you step into a T2 store you are surrounded by tea flavours and spices.

31487883_10211509166475867_2995478430394351616_n

We didn’t know what we liked as we had never experienced any tea flavours before but don’t worry the staff were amazing and a great help. Staff are always topping up the tea tasters in the middle but also walk around with a few to give you as you browse, this is where we tried this flavour as soon as we entered!

We even managed to experience live making of Matcha Green Tea when visiting the Leeds store and got a taste of it! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

31453641_10211509166395865_6279338436969103360_n

If you fancy a tea flavour but it’s not out for tester give the staff a shout, they are happy to help if you ask to try if you are interested in purchasing! As you first enter there are all different flavours on little saucers to smell and see if you can’t decide.

About this tea:

Melbourne Breakfast is a black tea with vanilla flavouring. The vanilla creates a sweet taste to the tea. We prefer this tea with a dash of milk but you can drink without milk if you prefer, which is still nice. We brew for around 4-5 minutes as we like ours strong but this is perfect for us! Not too sweet either, tastes smooth black tea. As it was our first flavoured tea purchase we didn’t have a tea infuser so bought tea bags but next time we will purchase loose tea leaves as these you can brew again not throw out straight away.

31453753_10211509168355914_6258802454570205184_n

Thank you for reading. We would love you to get in touch to tell us all about your favourite tea flavour whether T2 or another companies as we would love to try more.

NewMiTea’s Detox Tea – 3 Weeks Update☕️

We have only one week left of our first 28 days NewMiTea detox tea package. It has come round so quick and we are so excited to continue next month. It makes such a difference to your energy and day.

27018248_10210834566011277_384134058_o

Having 2 drinks a day we won’t be able to live without it. This tea gives you a boost of energy whilst being really good for you! This is really good before starting a busy day at work. We feel we don’t need to snack as regularly which helps with the weight loss side of it.

Benefits we have seen 3 weeks in:

  • A good amount of weight loss – this is also down to eating correctly
  • Increases our energy levels during the day
  • Reduces the need to snack
  • Improvement to our skin

A really good benefit from drinking this tea is that it is helping our skin by reducing spots and being less greasy. This could be down to the reduction in snacking and sitting around but also the fact this product is 100% organic and filled with goodness than fatty, sugary drinks and food.

26972430_10210834566131280_1831556964_o

The tea is lovely and sweet after brewing it for 5 minutes (a bit longer than needed). The sweetness of the Raspberry Leaf flavour over powers the taste of tea leaving a lovely fruity taste.

This product is definitely worth purchasing if you need that little boost in energy or looking for a healthy weight loss programme you can trust.

We are looking forward to seeing the end of our first journey next week.

26178542_10210704649683450_535620892_o

About the Product:

You can purchase a 28-day pack or even a 14-day pack to try with first (we have only had ours a few days and can already tell a difference in ourselves). Don’t worry they even supply a funky designed tea infuser to get you started!

This tea is 100% organic and natural and cleanses your internal organs allowing the good vitamins and nutrients to do their magic! It contains: Oolong tea, Pu’erh tea, Raspberry leaf, Garcinia fruit and Rosehip and you get a lovely sweet, light tea taste.

Our Journey So Far:

We were lucky enough to grab a bag of the 28-day detox tea leaves and two infusers. We are currently a few days in and loving this product. We have two cups a day one with our breakfast to wake us up and get us set up for the day and one with tea when relaxing from a long day at work. We have noticed even over these last few days how much better our skin has become and fresher we feel with more energy ready for the day! We can’t wait to see what the rest of the month brings. Keep an eye out for our finished post to see all the benefits and changes this product has done for us!

For our best results, we added 1 tbsp of tea leaves into our infuser and brewed in a cup of boiling water for 2-4 minutes.

To see a difference, you do need to keep fit and energetic and watch what you eat but all you need to help you out is on their website, here!

T2: Choc Molten Marvel Tea☕️🍫

T2 have a wide selection of teas to choose from and as we were travelling to Leeds for the Christmas Markets we knew we had to stop here for a refill of our favourite flavour ‘Melbourne Breakfast’. When we visit, we love trying a few taster flavours and this one was given to use as soon as we walked through the doors and that’s when I knew it was the one to buy.

Choc Molten Marvel Tea:

This tea is a lovely mix of black tea leaves and chocolate flakes to create this delicious rich hot chocolate taste. To get a perfect flavour leave to brew for 2-4 minutes for 1 teaspoon of leaves and why not try a dash of milk for a ticker texture! Best part is you can purchase this flavour as tea leaves or teabags to suit all.

thumb_DSC_1425_1024

What We Thought:

This tea flavour is like a perfect mixture of tea and hot chocolate! It also has a slight tangy orange taste and a kick of Baileys to it and this makes it feel very festive, ready for Christmas. Don’t worry if you don’t like Baileys, neither do we but we love this flavour!

Why not try it out for yourself, here!

True Tea Company – Spiced Apple Cider Tea🍂

What is better than drinking cider and being able to drive after or no hangover the next day?

Look no further the True Tea Company’s Spiced Apple Cider tea is perfect for both above. This tea is perfect for Christmas time, which is fast approaching, smelling just like mulled cider but without the alcohol.

About This Flavour:

This flavour is very sweet and has a strong apple and cinnamon taste. These tea leaves include cinnamon spice, apple slices, whole star anise and hibiscus creating a spiced winter infusion. This is perfect if you like a fruit tea with a spicy kick from the cinnamon. Another benefit is, unlike drinking alcoholic cider this tea has very little calories and sugar included.

Our Review:

From opening the packet the strong smell of the cinnamon and whole star aniseed fills the room. Compared to other tea leaves this flavour includes larger ingredient pieces providing a very pretty arrangement of ingredients perfect to photograph. After adding a selection of the tea leaves into the teapot, boiling water and brewed for around 5 minutes this created a beautiful deep red, warm colour and smelt delicious!

The flavour of this tea is very sweet fruity taste of apple along with a kick from the cinnamon creating that spicy flavour. Also, the infusion from the whole star anise pieces leaves a slight aniseed aftertaste.

We would definitely recommend this flavour for the Christmas/winter season as it’s an ideal winter warmer for those cold, dark nights with a Christmas aroma.

Tea Shirt London’s G&T Tea☕️🍂🍃🍸

If you’re a fan of the summer drink, Gin & Tonic why don’t you try the Winter edition, a cup of G&T tea!

At first we thought: ‘how do they go together’ but how wrong we were, this is our favourite winter drink this year. From ice cold to boiling hot this drink is perfect for a relaxing time. The cold, winter nights are closing in on us and there is nothing better than a cosy night with a hot drink – this is that drink.

Our Review:

Once our parcel arrived we couldn’t wait to get this brewing in the teapot and try! As soon as you get the boiling water on the leaves the sweet smell of lemons hits the air. This white tea defuses a beautiful aroma. Don’t worry about the Gin being too strong this is like a perfect cocktail but can drive after several drinks. 😉

This tea has many different flavours from the zingy taste of the citrus fruits to the tangy lemon that hits your tongue. The infusion of the white tea still hangs in the flavour to counteract that tangy, sweet taste of the fruits to give you that difference between the gin and the tonic water.

You can’t go wrong with this tea whether you prefer it boiling hot to warm you up or as an ice cold brew to relax with! We definitely recommend it.
