Fancy A Cuppa? teapigs - Review

I love love LOVE tea.  I have 3 teapots and at one stage owned over 20 different teas.  Obsessed?  Me?Well...  My collection tries to grow but I keep drinking it so when teapigs offered to send me samples to review, I was over the moon!  They sent me a fantastic selection featuring mao feng green tea and super fruit.  I was pleasantly surprised by their chai tea.  I have so many which I simply wouldn't repurchase but when I brewed this one up with some brown sugar and soya milk - YUM!  I cant wait for the 1st of November (keep reading to find out why) to order a batch for winter.

Generally I have no tea preference as it totally depends on my mood and hunger levels.  If you are unsure which tea to drink, their website features a 'mood-o-meter'.  Select how you are feeling and they will suggest a tea.  Feeling adventurous?  How about a chilli chai?  Want something more indulgent?  A chocolate flake tea is the one for you.

Award winning teapigs is like no other tea I've drank before, and trust me, I've drank plenty.  Their teas come loose or in biodegradable mesh pyramids aka tea temples.  This give the tea room to move in order to brew properly.  They only use 'proper' tea.  None of this ominous 'dust' you see in other tea products.  You can actually see the whole leaves, fruit, petals and even chunks of fudge depending on the product.  Truly luxurious.

So why am I waiting until November 1st to order my tea?  It's FREE tea day!  Perhaps the best day of the year?  The first 20 teapigs orders will each receive a free 50's size of everyday brew and 20 random orders will get a free 15's size everyday brew.  Plus, every single order placed on the 1st of November will get a free sample!  Some stores that stock teapigs are even participating in this wondrous of days.  You can find out more from their Newsletter and twitter feed (@teapigs).

If free tea is simply not enough, teapigs have kindly offered my readers a whopping 15% off.  All you need to do is enter the code: BLOGS13 at the checkout.  Please note: This discount does NOT apply to 80g matcha tins, gifts or cheeky deals as these are already discounted.

Do you drink teapigs tea?  Which is your favourite blend?

    1. I got through 20 Lidl's peppermint teabags in a week and a half once... Oops haha. If you like it sweet, their licorice and peppermint is good. Too sweet for me though.
