Love tea but bored of drinking the same flavours over and over?
Want to give loose tea a try, but not sure where to start?
Fancy a blend of zingy flavours all in one cup?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you’re in the right place. If you answered yes to all three, you might have a tea addiction like me, and therefore you’re still in the right place.
As my journalistic heroine Caitlin Moran once said:
Oh Caitlin, you truly are the voice of sanity… and my every day excuse to eat a biscuit (or three) with my cuppa.
Anyway, I’m sure you’re wondering what this post is all about, rather than me praising the drinking of tea, the eating of biscuits, and the journalistic ramblings of Caitlin Moran. Well, actually, exactly that, but mostly in praise of one particular brand of tea… Piacha.
Piacha have a gorgeous tea bar in London, where you can drink tea to your hearts delight – I’m not sure if they have biscuits! Still, if you can’t make it to London, that won’t stop them – they send a packet of tea right to your door.
This beautiful pouch of tea is the Chamomile Citrus blend, which Piacha kindly sent me to try. And this really is no ordinary tea. A punchy mix of chamomile, lemon verbena, rose petals, lime leaves and lavender. Relaxing and zingy all in one. You still get the subtle and soothing flavours of chamomile and rose, with a hint of lavender; then the lemon and lime really adds a sherbet like zing to the equation. There’s nothing quite like it – you really have to taste it to get it. My new favourite tea, with bells on!
You can buy a 30g pouch as a one-off for £5.30, or you can subscribe for a regular delivery and get 10% off. It’s also available in tea bag form (very handy for work).
Piacha pride themselves on high quality ingredients and skilful blending skills. Every single one of their unique blends has something slightly different and interesting about it. There’s a huge range of herbal teas, black teas, green teas and white teas. Something for everyone, and with free UK delivery too (50p for EU).
I’m 100% converted and next time I’m in London, I’m off to Piacha to find out if they have biscuits!
