I was sent these lovely loose teas by Squeeze me juice. When I opened the parcel and saw the pretty foil-sealed packaging I knew I was in for a treat! In the pack I had two teas: Good Morning Sunshine which is Golden Monkey King tea and sunflower petals, and Simply The Zest which a fruit tea which is zesty citrus with hibiscus and rosehip.
I opened the Good Morning Sunshine. It had a very nostalgic effect on me as it smelt of a little hay and it reminded me of summers spent horse riding. I brewed up the Good Morning Sunshine and had a try. When it’s brewing it turns a lovely chestnut colour. I did add a splosh of milk but not too much, but it would also be nice with a slice of lemon and some honey. It’s wonderful – a breakfast tea with a tiny hint of flower that isn’t too overpowering (no hay taste when brewed!). I’ll be honest, I’m actually drinking this a lot at the moment instead of a full on builders brew. It’s light and yet still packs a good taste punch. Mr Lay the table described it as ‘like earl grey without the strong flower taste’.
Next I got out the Simply The Zest. On opening the bag there’s the wonderful aroma of berries, it feels very comforting and relaxing and it’s great to see all the bits, rather than them being ground up.
What a pretty colour my brew was! This was a great fruity flavour and even though I’m not normally a fan of fruit teas, with a bit of sugar for my sweet tooth it was quite delectable. You could taste the rosehip but it accentuated the other zesty flavours rather than overpowering them. A great taste for those looking for a caffeine free refreshment or you just love fruit tea.
