Teatime Treats with teapigs

Teapigs CollageI always enjoy a good cup of tea. Just the ritual of making this warming, comforting and delicious drink makes me feel content. Teapigs, the makers of real, quality tea have added two new blends to their already wonderful range with the launch of Teapigs Earl Grey Strong and Darjeeling.

Teapigs already offer a lovely light Darjeeling Earl Grey but their Earl Grey Strong blend has a little extra oomph. A blend of teas including Assam, Rwandan, Ceylon and Darjeeling teas creates a strong Earl Grey flavour with a hint of zesty Bergamot. My husband, who drinks Earl Grey tea almost exclusively, says this blend is the best he has ever tasted. Teapigs Darjeeling offers lovely refreshment with a clear, vibrant taste. I love a lighter tea and I found it really refreshing and delicious at any time of day.

Unlike your average ‘cuppa’ teapigs teas are made using whole leaves, herbs and flowers and presented in biodegradable tea temples allowing room for the leaves to infuse fully, just like loose tea in a teapot. I’ve been a fan since teapigs were founded in 2006 and you’ll always find a big selection of their products in our cupboards. Teapigs teas make lovely gifts as well – a great idea for Christmas giving!

The lovely people at teapigs are offering The 21st Century Housewife readers a generous discount of 20% off teas and tea ware. This offer excludes gifts, cheeky deals and matcha kits and is valid until 31st December 2013. Simply quote TPPE13 at checkout on the teapigs website.

Treat yourself to a nice cup of teapigs tea alongside one of these delicious tea time snacks.

  1. I like to start my day with a hot cup of tea like many people with their coffee. The Teapigs Modern Matcha Kit is going on my Christmas wishlist.
