When I was growing up, there was very little in our household that couldn’t be solved by “a nice cup of tea”. The kettle in our house was invariably still hot from having been boiled or being filled with cold water ready to boil again for another pot of tea. My auntie Jan was even worse, I can hear her voice now saying “cup of tea kid”? This wasn’t really a question, although it always sounded like it. It was more of a cue to be ready to take a steaming hot mug of tea in your hand a moments notice. She and my uncle George drank gallons of the stuff and made sure that none of her visiting friends and family ever went without a cup of tea in her house for more than a few moments.
To this day, I have a cupboard full of tea and when anybody comes to the house and selects tea as their beverage of choice they are then confronted with a bewildering array of different teas to choose from.
Imagine my delight that the London Tea Company communicated with me on Twitter and then sent me a box with a selection of their teas to taste and try out. The tea are all premium content and quality and include a traditional breakfast tea; a lovely refreshing Earl Grey; a zesty Lemongrass, Ginger and Citrus Fruits infusion; a Darjeeling; my personal favourite a Green Tea Tropical; a Moroccan Mint tea; a Rooibos and finally a Vanilla Chai. What I like about their pyramid tea bags is that I can make a small pot with 1 bag or a large mug-full which is perfect for me.
Having Tasted the teas I really enjoyed them and would thoroughly recommend them.

So having said that, I’m off to pop the kettle on for a nice cup of tea!
