Ginger Bread Man by Bruu Tea

Hello tea friends! With Christmas almost here and the cold weather set in I’m drawn to the festive teas. This one was from my late November tea club box and I’m only just getting around to trying it. Ingredients: Rooibos, Almond Pieces, Pistachios, Orange Peel, Coriander, Flavouring, Pink Peppercorn. Opening the packet I am drawn in by the scent of ginger biscuits. It’s the most ginger biscuity thing I have ever smelt that was not actually ginger biscuits. It’s incredible! Ginger with baked bread and sugar but also a touch of spice.

Lime Green with Envy from BlendBee

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Where to Buy: Amoda Tea Tea Description: You don’t see as many lime teas as you do lemon because it’s so much more sour than a lemon and can be tough to balance in a tea.
