the magic of tea.




"A day without tea is a day without joy."

Is there anything more British than a cuppa? The list of ailments that can be cured by a mug of the good stuff is endless - I've listed some of my favourites below!

I've been getting an extra warm fuzzy feeling inside when I drink my tea lately, as I've been drinking this smugglers brew from Cornish Tea. You all know how much I love the south west of England, and after a little trip down to Cornwall to visit my cousin & her wife, I feel like that love has been renewed.



This British company was set up by two pals in 2012, and has been going from strength to strength. Like a teabag left in the cup. It's always nice to support homegrown companies, especially when the product is so yummy! I can't fault the taste at all, and the packaging is a fun read while your tea is brewing - lots of little facts, stories, quotes... all sorts!

15 REASONS WHY WE DRINK TEA:

• it's a ritual

• to wake us up

• because we feel a little under the weather

• it cures hangovers

• to celebrate

• to commiserate

• because we're cold

to help us open up

• because someone offered us one and we can't say "no"

• because we're bored

• it's an excuse to have a break from work

• because we've had a shock

• it goes very well with cake and biscuits

• to wind down after a hard day

• it's a reason to be sociable

  7. I got so excited when I saw the title of this post because Tea is my Jam. I'm obsessed. And I was also thinking about writing a tea post, about my favorite teas. When I went to England 2 summers ago to visit my cousin, her (now) husband, had a whole pantry full of tea and I was in heaven....His answer for it was "I'm a Brit, what do you expect?" HAHA

  18. Definitely have to agree with every single point...as I was drinking a cuppa, of course. Although for the last couple of months I've hopped over to decaf as the caffeine was just affecting me too much!

  21. You can't start the day in the UK without a good cup of tea, over the past two years I have been pushing the boundaries well for me that is when it come to tea and have been trying loose teas and different types of tea bags, I cam across a website of and uk tea company called The Kent ad Sussex Tea and Coffee Company www.tea-and-coffee.com they have a selection of over 1000 different tea which to be honest I never thought there could be such a selection of tea, really worth a look take you into a new world when it comes to tea, I now place an order with this company every month and have never looked back.
