Original but not my fav.

Not my fav Bluebird tea. A creamy smell enhanced by the vanilla (which I love) is lightly transferred into the taste, giving the blend a faint sweetness. There’s also faint hints of pepper, citric spices and pine, but the predominant note is a bitter tang of tea. All the points of originality for the spruce needles. Less points for the actual flavour.

cake in a mug

This really does smell and taste like Christmas cake! A few too many cloves for my liking (does anybody like cloves?) but the pine needles gave it such a crisp, wintery smell, sort of like when Heston did pine needle sugar for his mince pies. I'm definitely getting some for the family to try at Christmas.

Christmas Cake Tea and Pandalisious Liqourice

I admit to having been more of a coffee drinker in recent years but, I came across Bluebird Tea Co at the Worcester Christmas fayre and bought a packet of Gingerbread Chai. I was so impressed by the smell and flavour that I wanted more, especially after soaking fruit in it to make bara brith. I was gutted, but not surprised, to find it was out of stock. About to close the site and try again another time, I spotted Christmas Cake and thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did. I spent the first 5mins after opening the packet holding it under my nose just breathing in the scent. It took me back to my childhood and opening my grandmothers cake tin. My expectations then running high I wasn't disappointed by the brewed cup either. I've tried leaving it for various times before drinking and found that the recommended 4 mins is best: the longer I left it to brew the more the flavour of the black tea overpowered the other spices. I also found that if you leave it in the cup to cool a little before drinking, the more the taste of cinnamon, clove, almond and vanilla come through.
Unfortunately black tea is a bit of an irritant to my stomach so, as addictive as the tea is, I'm not able to drink as much of it as I want to. No matter! Bluebird Tea Co has the perfect remedy. Pandalicious Liqourice. A herbal tea that smells great, can be drunk hot or cold,settles the tummy and leaves a subtle but refreshing taste in the mouth. On those days when, for whatever reason, the thought of food or drink turns your stomach and plain water just wont do; this is what you should be reaching for to keep fluid levels in check.
With so many different teas Bluebird Tea Co spoil you for choice. Its now my mission to try them all by the end of the year but which one do I buy first?

Christmas Cheer

OMG full of all the very best flavours and sents of Christmas! Hot or cold this is fantastic. I made it hot and drank it straight - next time hot again with caramel syrup and scotch whiskey (wow!!) then tried it cold and chilled over ice with Cointreau and slithers of orange peel which was exotic and refreshing...please do this again next year! And can I suggest a gift set with the mulled wine and gingerbread tea as a gift trio? I'll be back for more soon xx...Read more
