Food, fashion and beauty blogger Becca shares her top tips for a tea-filled day
1. What is your favourite tea to set you up for the day first thing in the morning?
My favourite tea for the morning is definitely green tea. I like it nice and strong and more to the point, bitter! This helps me come round nicely from a sleepy slumber and makes me feel a whole lot more revitalised, ready to get on with the day ahead.
2. What is your favourite tea to relax you in the afternoon?
My afternoon tea would definitely be peppermint. The vibrant, fresh taste of this drink helps refresh my palette after lunch. Having said that it goes really well with ginger biscuits. If you haven’t tried this combination before then you really should. You are missing out!
3. What do you like best about Steenbergs teas?
If someone was looking for a wide and all-encompassing selection of teas I would point them in the direction of Steenbergs. I love that you can spend hours getting lost in the herbal tea world online. I also always like to buy organic or fairtrade when I can so this gives the shop brownie points in my eyes.
4. Which Steenbergs tea would you most like to try and why?
I am yet to try 3 Flower Burst Tea; it looks truly mesmerising in the see-through glass teapot so that is on my ‘to try’ list.
I would also like to try the Japanese green tea, Bancha.
5. Who would you most like to have a cup of tea with and why?
Who would I most like to have tea with? I pondered on this question for a while but I came to the conclusion that it would have to be someone I could have fun with over a cuppa! Bearing this in mind it would be comedian Russell Brand who I am sure would have plenty of stories as well as views to share. Hopefully the tea wouldn’t get too cold…
