TeaPigs

$10

Box Contains 15 Tea Temples

1 Tea temple = 1 per person. Infuse in 8-16oz of boiling water. Brew for 3+ minutes. For Iced, cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3+ minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water.

Whole leaves take a little longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it

Allergens: dairy free, gluten free, suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Made in a factory that handles nuts.

 

Apple + Cinnamon: Whether its in grandma's pie or giant muffins nothing beats the flavour of sweet juicy apple with punchy cinnamon spice. It's the perfect combination for a lovely fruity, punchy and spicy tea. Good for when you're in the mood for sweetness! 

Ingredients: apple, cinnamon, apple pomace, roasted chicory root, citric acid, sweet blackberry leaves, natural flavourings

 

Chai: Variations of aromatic, spiced, milky tea have been the Indian drink of choice for hundreds of years. TeaPigs has blended rich, malty Assam tea with exotic cardamom pods, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla to develop their own blend of this delicious, satisfying and yummy beverage that encapsulates all the colour and vibrancy of India in a cup. Good for a boost when you're feeling half-asleep! Try it with milk and maybe even a little sugar or honey.

Ingredients: black tea, cinnamon, ginger, cassia, cardamom pods, natural cinnamon flavour, vanilla

 

Chamomile: The Chamomile flower is celebrated for its health benefits, which include calming, aiding sleep and supporting digestion. Most chamomile teas are made by crushing the flowers. However, TeaPigs knows that the best chamomile tea comes from brewing the whole flowers! This is a beautiful yellow cup which gives way to a sweet, surprisingly juicy flavour of chamomile - drink pure or sweeten with honey. Naturally caffeine free. Good for when you're unable to switch off!

Ingredients: pure, whole chamomile flowers

 

Darjeeling Earl Grey: Most Earl Greys use poor quality China base tea, but Tea Pigs uses the finest Darjeeling from the foothills of the Himalayas and adds zesty bergamot citrus from sunny Southern Italy. The exotic, floral tones of Darjeeling tea are balanced with the zesty citrus taste of bergamot, to create something altogether more elegant. Blue cornflowers added for a pretty visual. Good for when you're in need of a little refinement or pick-me-up. Drink with a slice of lemon - add milk and/or sugar if you fancy!

Ingredients: black tea, cornflowers, natural bergamot flavour

 

Green Tea + Mint: Traditional Moroccan green tea with mint is typically drunk sweet - very, very sweet. This is because they use Gunpowder Green, a tea so strong that sugar is needed to remove the astringency. TeaPigs opted for a more delicate chunmee green tea known as Precious Eyebrows. Better to change the base tea than your teeth, they reckoned. Good for when you're feeling rough on the inside and even worse on the outside; green tea and mint are a great cure-all.

This tea is best with water at 176 degrees F. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)

Ingredients: green tea, peppermint leaves

 

Lemon + Ginger: This all natural gingery lemony brew will sweep you away to a British summers day - homemade lemonade, traditional ginger beer, croquet and morris dancers (ok perhaps a step too far). There is no match for the ginger kick and refreshing lemon in this infusion. Good when you're feeling Mellow - this lemon and gingery blend will lift your spirits on even the cloudiest of days. 

Ingredients: ginger, lemongrass, lemon peel, liquorice root

Liquorice + Mint: Liquorice has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and is hugely popular with the Dutch. Louise of TeaPigs says it tastes so much better with peppermint than sherbet dips. Which is why, TeaPigs blended pure liquorice root with whole peppermint leaves to create a naturally sweet and refreshing drink that is irresistible. Good for when you're in need of a super comforting, guilt-free, sweet treat. Infuse for a full 3 minutes - the longer you leave this blend the sweeter it gets.

Ingredients: liquorice root, peppermint leaves

Peppermint: TeaPigs' peppermint tea is fresher and finer than any teabag mint you have tasted before because, as with their regular teas, they insist on whole leaves. Because they use whole peppermint leaves, you’ll find the flavour of this blend much stronger and fresher than regular dusty paper teabags.  Good for when your stomach is grumbling. It's great after a heavy night out! The longer you brew, the stronger the mint. Leave it in for 7+ minutes to make it strong!

Ingredients: peppermint leaves

 

Popcorn: Despite it's name, this tea is not a Buttered Popcorn flavor. This tea has flourished from humble beginnings - Japanese peasants used to mix green tea with toasted rice to make it go further. It is now celebrated in its own right as Genmaicha tea, or Popcorn tea. "Sugar Puffs in a cup" - a truly unique blend with an almost nutty undertone. Good for when you're in need of a treat - this sweet green tea will lift your spirits.

This tea is best with water at 176 degrees F. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)

Ingredients: green tea, toasted rice

 

Organic Trim: This is a yummy combination of peach, rosehip and hibiscus. The active ingredient in this blend is guarana seed from the Amazon basin. It's known to give your metabolism an almighty, all-natural boost - woo hoo! Good for when you're feeling a little bloated.

Ingredients: organic guarana seed, organic apple, organic liquorice root, organic white hibiscus, natural flavouring, organic rosehip, organic peach pieces

Spiced Winter Red: Think: Mulled wine and mistletoe. Winter coats and rosy cheeks. Log fires, happy cats and old movies on TV. Tea and warming spices. This blend of orange peel, cinnamon and cloves on a redbush tea base, is perfect on a crisp frosty day or with brandy at bedtime. Good for when you need to warm up - try it with milk or brandy! 

Ingredients: rooibos, flavours, orange peel, gingko, orange blossom, cinnamon, ginger root, cloves, safflower

 

Super Fruit: The wishy-washy fruit teas are no longer – hurrah! TeaPigs has popped real whole berries (cranberries and blueberries to be precise) to give a fruit tea that packs a super fruity punch. These ingredients are great little super-foods so as well as a great tasting cup, you get a health kick too! Good for when you're feeling slow + lifeless - the antioxidants help bump up your mood! If you like your fruit sweeter, try adding honey when it's hot or creamer when its iced!
