My Foxy Tea Time – make time for tea

My Foxy Tea Time

Sometimes all I want to do is post about tea, and in my head I try and consider how much an average tea drinker would want to read about tea (possibly not at all) and then hold off on continually bombarding you with tea favourites. It’s not my fault that its my life source. I am slowly trying to back away from my relationship with coffee and so tea is becoming even more important in my life, although to be honest I didn’t realise that was possible.

I’m so glad this week has come to an end. It’s not that I don’t try to enjoy everyday, but a few busy busy weekends, a flat inspection and then full on stuff at work has made me a slightly more exhausted version of myself than I would like to be. So to relax, I turn to tea. And here are 4 more teas that have been occupying my teapot lately.My Foxy Tea Harney and Sons Paris

This first gorgeous tin is full of a tea I had been meaning to buy for the longest time, and eventually picked up from the awesome little tea shop in Mt Eden (tea and romance novels, what more could you need?!). Paris is a black tea by Harney & Sons, and for someone who tends to stick to herbal teas, this is a firm favourite of mine. I would drink a pot of it every time we visited Okra, and now I get to enjoy it at home too! This black tea is pretty fruity and flavourful, with bergamot and orange, but also warm notes of caramel and vanilla. Its a delicious brew, strong yet comforting, self-assured yet mysterious, like the French I guess. Delicious.

My Foxy Tea Time Red Seal

I know we are moving into the colder weather, and these cold brew bags are now more often hot brewed, but I have been loving this Apple and Elderflower herbal tea by Red Seal a lot lately. It’s a refreshing cup, with clean flavours, and does a great job of satisfying my 3pm sweet tooth cravings. The individual packaging is not the most ecologically friendly I would guess, but is perfect for me throwing a few into my handbag for work,

T Leaf ChamomileJust take a moment to gaze on the beauty of this t leaf cinnamon apple chamomile herbal tisane (long name, but I promise its worth it). It not only looks weirdly wonderful, but this amazing combination of flavours is my perfect evening drink to de-stress, unwind and settle down before bed. The apple and cinnamon are subtle but do a perfect job of bringing a warmth and depth of flavour to the chamomile blossoms. A perfect option for someone who isn’t a super big fan of chamomile tea itself, but wants to have its relaxing benefits!

My Foxy Tea Time KeriKeriLast up is this wee bag of Kerikeri Organic Green Honeybush which has been my main choice at work lately. This caffeine-free tea doesn’t have super interesting flavours, but it tastes similar to a subtle green tea and has a slight sweetness. From what I have gathered, honeybush is a South African tea, similar to Rooibos, and normally the same golden red colour. This makes a great alternative for Green Tea as it still has high levels of antioxidants but doesn’t contain the caffeine of green tea.

Let me know what tea has been featuring for you lately as this colder weather moves in, or what you think if you have tried any of the above!

  1. A friend gave me some of those cold brew bags and I loved them iced, but recently started drinking them warm and they’re good too. I’m coming to the end of my T2 Chai and I’m sad about it, I’ll probably buy another one though.
