I’ve never really been a fan of the taste of tea, but, in the last year, as my dairy intolerance has all but destroyed regular hot chocolates, I’ve found myself drinking more of the fruity ones.
As expected, the girls I spoke to at the stall we’re so friendly, and, after tasting the tea we started talking about it’s so fresh it’s like drinking one of those mint strips that you used to put on your tongue. Does anyone else remember those?!
The blend and the benefits
As the name suggests it’s perfect for winter, with its frosty blend of peppermint leaves and oils.
Peppermint tea has quite a few health benefits too (Georgina here are some more facts for you!) including improving digestion, which will definitely help after stuffing my face at Christmas, and helping boost your immune system. I tend to get ill (a lot!) and when I stay that way for months – according to my blood tests I have a weak(ish) immune system but this tea has definitely helped to clear my sinuses when I’ve been feeling congested a couple of times already – so it’s working!
It also works great as an afternoon pick-me-up, and I seriously need one of those on a Sunday when I’m trying to write but Monday is almost within touching distance!
As someone who doesn’t have much love for herbal teas I think the London Tea Company may have converted me with this one.
What’s your favourite tea for winter?
I’ve never been one for ‘about me’ pages so let's keep it short and sweet: I'm 25 (so I guess you could assume I'm going through a quarter-life crisis), London-based, love food, oh, and partial to a rum-based drink... or just the rum tbh.
