yogitea_hamper

I’m not English and I don’t really drink regular tea. Once in a blue moon in the office I might and now that I’ve lived in London for almost a decade I might even put a dash of milk in it. I tried it a few months ago and it wasn’t actually too weird.

I love herbal tea though, especially peppermint and liquorice. The latter is a strange favourite for me because until I was well into my 30-s I couldn’t stand the taste of liquorice (or aniseed in Asian food).

Because we only have herbal tea in the house, every once in a while we write in all caps in your shopping list: NORMAL TEA FOR ENGLISH PEOPLE.  I don’t want to see the sad face of another guest who hears that we don’t have any tea :(

But back to “non-normal” tea – and I mean it in the nicest possible way :) – several weeks ago I was sent a gorgeous hamper of 6 flavours of YogiTea – they have various combinations of liquorice, cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, cocoa shells, fennel – can’t you just SMELL the aromas already?

This stuff is so up my alley (and I keep sniffing the tea bags for the longest time before I actually make my tea).  Usually the trouble with a lot of herbal teas (especially fruity ones ) is that they smell amazing but the taste is very watery and disappointing.

That does not apply to these babies:

The smell is intense and the taste is just as intense.

As I said I have tried their liquorice tea before and I regularly buy a similar bedtime blend, so my new favourite out of the bunch is Choco – liquorice, cinnamon and a hint of chocolate.  I think that box is almost empty by now :(

Good news for you is that I received one set of 6 boxes to give away! As usual, I’ll ship anywhere, just because I’m nice like that and I find giveaways that are limited to one geographic region so annoying – I have faithful readers in America, Europe AND Australia, I can’t leave anyone out.

Entering is easy, just leave me a quick comment and you’re good to go :)

    I love herbal teas and have gradually migrated from drinking about 5 cups of “English Tea” a day to probably one every 6 weeks. My favourite flavour at the moment is Vanilla Chai from the Pukka Tea range.

    I am not English either and can remember clearly the day my now husband ask me how I take my tea! I just said same as you…not knowing what I’d be getting! I do now drink tea. Anything from English breakfast to lovely jasmine green tea. I think my favourite at the moment is the jasmine green. :-) Enjoy your lovely hamper.
