This week I drank three different hot beverages (as one isn’t tea, hence the quotations around tea in the title) that I haven’t tried before and I thought it would be nice to include them all in one post.
1. Twinings Green Tea and Salted Caramel
You can buy it from Tesco for £2.49
2. Coconut Coffee Latte
I visited a lovely little Thai café on one of my morning commutes this week. I wanted to try something different. I don’t make a habit of buying coffees on the go as I have pretty great coffee at work and mostly prefer teas anyway.
The Coconut Coffee Latte grabbed my attention and I knew that I had to try it. It was a very mild and delicate coffee, as you would expect from a latte although there was the delicious addition of toasted coconut (I love coconut bits in chocolate and ice-cream!) along with what I think was coconut cream?
Overall, this was a lovely creamy but not rich, pleasant drink, with hints of coconut and real coconut pieces.
3. Twinings Camomile Tea with Honey
This blend just sounds like it was a match made in heaven. I felt a little rushed and on edge commuting around London today with lots of train cancellations and delays. The first thing that I usually do when I walk through the door, after a day like that, is to put the kettle on. Bear has a stack of teas that he brought home for the holidays so I thought that I would give this a try. The short way to describe it is camomile with a smooth sweetness and undertones of vanilla. It goes down very well. I like to keep the bag in for as long as I can with camomile as I can’t get enough of that flavour!
You can also purchase this from Tesco for £1.49.
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, I’ve also been discovering so many new tea feeds to follow (bar the spammy ones!). I have been made aware of Taylors Green Tea with Strawberry and Vanilla which sounds absolutely divine so I fear that my next pay will have a portion of it allocated to tea!
Have you tried any new teas lately? Are you more of a traditional tea-drinker?
