A hot cup of loose leaf tea in winter is one of life’s little pleasures and here at the Leaf Bean Machine office we love nothing more than preparing a fresh pot of loose leaf tea (aside from drinking all the yummy Karvan Coffee). Though we are fans of the traditional (Hello English Breakfast!) sometimes we like to brew something a little different, which is pretty easy here at Pure Tea with over 40 different loose leaf teas to choose from.
But which one I hear you ask? Well, here are a few of our favourites for you:
Bursting with colour, Japanese Morning Dew is the prettiest tea in the range (Shhh, don’t tell the others!). Aside from the it’s good looks, this green tea is made up of seven ingredients: green tea, sunflower blossoms, chamomile flowers, mallow flowers, rose petals, calendula and pineapple pieces. Nothing like tropical pineapple to take the edge off winter!
Perfect for when you are craving something sweet, this chamomile blend is like apple pie in a cup (yep – apple pie!). Aside from the obvious chamomile flower, this relaxing tea has real apple pieces in it, taking your daily cup of tea from zero to hero. It smells as good as it tastes and is definitely a favourite in our office.
What can I say about Darjeeling? FTGFOP that’s what! Before you start thinking that I’m speaking another language, let me explain. FTGFOP is particular classification of black tea (particularly those grown in India and Sri Lanka) and means: Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. In short, this is a high quality tea. Fine to drink with milk but best served black so that you can truly appreciate the smooth taste of what is commonly called ‘the champagne of teas’.
This delicious blend of spices is sure to warm even the coldest winter day. A mix of black tea, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom pods, Chai is one of the most popular teas in the Pure Tea range and it is not hard to see why.
You may have heard of Rooibos before but not like this. Rooibos Caramel, as the name suggests, contains real pieces of caramel, which means you can curb the sweet cravings without all the calories. Plucked from the African tea bush, this black tea alternative is also caffeine free, making it perfect for evening drinking.Now that you have a few new teas to try, why not make sure you’re getting the best out of your brew: read our tea preparation guide
