Find of the Week

Rose With French Vanilla 4

Herbal teas are a pleasure I’m just starting to enjoy.  I’ve always been a tea drinker but anything more adventurous than English Breakfast felt a bit too much like drinking potpourri.

Lately I’ve been open to re-trying things I had once dismissed, it started with a cup of chamomile (which I once detested), I poured one a few weeks back when I wanted to de-stress and found that I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It had me retrying teas I thought I didn’t like, such as Earl Grey.  I found them strangely appealing and now it’s turned into a love affair – where I have a cupboard stacked full of different varieties.

This Dilmah Rose with French Vanilla has become a favourite – it permeates the senses with a heady floral infusion as you breathe in the aroma of the cup, but delivers a whole new sensation with the taste weighted toward a sweet vanilla tang and only a hint of rose, keeping it from tasting too much like you’re drinking perfume.  Although, as I become accustom to the flavour I’m finding that I want to leave the tea bag in for longer, so that the rose intensity is stronger.

I’ve found herbal teas to be a nice alternative to replace my usual habits, for instance, winding down of an evening with a glass of wine – & it’s a nice new habit to have!

    I have been getting into herbal teas a bit lately as well after I was given a beautiful tea cup with built in strainer from T2 they have some amazing teas and homewares 🙂

  • I have so many herbal teas in the cupboard but I hardly ever drink them as I am a bit of a coffee addict. Think I will pop on the kettle now and have a tea!

  • I’ve started to love tea, too. Trader Joe’s had a great sampler pack with really neat vials of teas from all over last holiday season. It opened my eyes to all the variety and deliciousness.

    • Oh cool, I’ll look out for the sampler packs, good idea! Thanks Jess xxx

  • I love tea and having a cupboard full of different varieties. I think there’s a tea for every mood and time of day – I’ll have to try this one.

    • Definitely! xxxxxx
