I was sent a lovely package from Steenbergs through the lovely folk at EcoMarket.com. It was filled with such wonderful treats, some of which I shall talk about in another post entirely. But I got a bundle of wonderful Organic teas to try. I was also sent a fantastic Tea Filter which sits perfectly in a mug and is a much easier way to steep loose tea.
I was sent samples of Organic Russian Caravan Tea, Regency Afternoon Tea, Organic Breakfast Tea, Organic Earl Grey Tea, and Organic Darjeeling Black Tea. Each one was delightful. I especially liked the Regency Afternoon Tea.
I have found a new love for floral teas lately, but there is something about Jasmine that soothes me. This tea is pretty special, not only is it delightful, but is based on the celebration of 200 years of Pride and Prejudice and the tea recipes of that time. This light Chinese tea is one of my new top 5.
This tea is light and refreshing and has the most beautiful orangey hue. Coming from the Monteviot tea Estate, which is apparently one of the smallest and oldest tea plantations in India today means that it is not the most Poshest of Darjeeling or even that expensive but is just rather tasty. Perfect for a lovely warm afternoon in the garden with a little bowl of strawberries.
I have also recently put Earl Grey on my top 5 list, and this one is no disappointment. As soon as I opened the seal of the foil bag, the Bergamot Oil rapidly escaped and filled my nose with it's wonderful aroma. "Wow" I thought, this will surely be a treat. The loose tea leaves/pyramid itself wasn't the prettiest Earl Grey I have seen, but once it was sat in the cup and produced it's mahogany hue, it tasted perfect.Not only are these teas tasty and easy to drink, I love the fact they are Organic. I feel like alot of things that I consider to put in to my tummy or on my face these days are filled with Organic ingredients. This makes me feel better. Not only is it better for the environment, better for me and my health, but I know what I'm putting into my body, which is more than I can say for some of these big branded companies. I am really starting to appreciate it all alot more.
I have a few more Amazing Steenbergs products to share with you soon and I cannot wait, you will LOVE them!
