You'll know by now I'm the sort of person who loves trying weird & wonderful new food and drink products. If I'm doing the weekly shop and I see my usual cheddar cheese, and beside it a newly launched apple-infused, zingy, mature block, it'll be fruity cheese for all that week. New tastes and gorgeous packaging just sucker me in every time. This week I received some of the most unusual tea flavours I've ever seen, thanks to www.HigherLivingHerbs.co.uk
The Sweet Chilli Tea was certainly a shock. None of the other high quality tea brands I've worked with before had this variety, and I'm pleased to say its a treat. Incidentally, do you recall in the nineties and before sweet chilli sauce just DIDN'T EXIST? Same with pizzas and paninis. In Northern Ireland, anyway.
I know once you get it home it goes in the cupboard, but check out the sexy, swish packaging. No Tetley men in flat caps here. Higher Living Teas are easy to spot, and you can find them in your local Holland & Barratt store. If you prefer you can order from the sofa via Higher Life's online store at www.teafactory.org.uk
Here's the best bit, boxes of Higher Life are priced under £2. If you buy in Holland & Barratt at the moment you buy one product and get any other half price- so you could try two different flavours for under £3. That's loads of tea.
I'd tried Suki's Liquorice blend before and this was also delicious. I personally dislike the taste of liquorice, but in tea form the flavour changes and takes a sweeter form.
Talk to me on Twitter @rudedoodle and tell me what's the most crazy tea flavour you've ever tried?
