2016 Teas

tea journal page

 

As well as having a page which documents the books that I am reading in 2016, I thought it might also be a good idea to have a page that lists the teas (and other hot drinks) that I am drinking in a particular month.

If I’m drinking the same teas from one month to another, I will still list it so that I can document which teas I was enjoying enough to keep drinking consistently!

If and when I finish a box/ pouch of tea I will add the date that I finished it.

If I have reviewed or blogged about a particular tea, I will include a link to the post.

I hope that this experiment works so that at the end of the year I can look at my list and see what I drank throughout the year. I have access to quite a wide range of Twinings teas at work so you can expect to see repeats of Twinings teas in my list.

If I have any comments to add about a tea that I have not reviewed, I will add it to the list below.

What teas have you been drinking a lot of this year?

Happy drinking!

  1. I’m a Mocha fanatic as you can see by my username but as a tea lover too can I suggest you try Taylors of Harrowgate ‘Yorkshire Tea’ … It’s tag line is “Let’s have a proper brew”!

    Little bit of trivia for you! Yorkshire Tea is the UK’s third favourite tea brand and has overtaken Twinings and Typhoo!

    It definitely deserves a mention and review!

    Happy Brewing!

    1. Hi Mocha Mum! Apologies for the late response; Thank you so much for your comment! 🙂 I had no idea that Yorkshire Tea was such a favourite. Personally I drink a lot of PG Tips and Typhoo daily but will definitely be more open minded and try some YT soon!

      Happy Brewing to you too!
