I should say, that I have tried teapigs before but the samples which came in the post included some which I hadn’t tried before so I was excited to get brewing.
I have previously tried the peppermint, chamomile and super fruits but with teapigs you can never get enough.
Each teapig is presented in a little silk tea temple and is left to brew in the hot water for 2-3 minutes. This allows whole leaves to float around and infuse, unlike conventional paper teabags which don’t allow the tea to move around.
First up was chamomile tea This was delicious. It had whole flower heads in the temple which added to the flavour and it tasted so much better than other brands.
Next was peppermint tea – This tea is super minty and is great for after food. If you eat to much over the festive period and need something to settle your tum, then this is the one for you.
Next, lemon and ginger — This tea was warming and refreshing all at once. It too is great for settling upset stomachs. It’s more ginger than lemon and you can feel the ginger warming up each bit of you it touches as you swallow it.
Then there was the liquorice and mint. This was my least favourite, probably just because I’m not a big fan of liquorice teas. But you can taste both the liquorice and peppermint clearly.
Second last to try was super fruit. I totally love this tea! It’s very moreish and is great warmed in the winter or would be great chilled for the summer. It’s very refreshing and does a great job of quenching any thirst you might have. For an added festive twist you could always mix it with some mulled wine spice mixture and have a tasty alternative to mulled wine.
Sadly the last one left to try was darjeeling earl grey – This had a very citrus and floral taste to it. It is fantastic and when you’re drinking it you feel like it should be from a dainty tea cup rather than the big mugs I prefer.
