Tea. How great is tea? It is the most diversified drink. Whether you like English Breakfast or French Earl Grey in the morning, Jasmine or Peppermint mid-morning, Lemon and Ginger for lunch, Chai in the afternoon or a nice Chamomile Tisane by night – the chances are, what ever your cravings are they are likely to be satisfied by one of these flavours!
But wait… there’s more!
My younger brother bought be such a lovely gift this Christmas: the two packets of teas featured above from T2. Unlike in France (where I spent most of my Christmas seasons), Australia celebrates Christmas under the radiant sun as opposed to covered by snow. Therefore, one may think that tea may not be the ideal gift to enjoy in such hot weather. However, tea (once again) displays its versatility – and this time not only through its never-ending choice of flavours.
I bet most have you have heard of ‘Iced-Tea’ before? I am not only referring to the yummy drink from Lipton. Natural Iced Tea (made from fresh herbal tea) is divine. The two flavours which my brother bought me are amazing. Iced tea is such a simple way to refresh yourself with a drink that is more catchy to the tongue than plain water but that is not full of sugar like coke or the many commercialised ‘Iced Teas’ lying around in supermarkets.
I love making iced tea for my siblings now – they love it. I bet you would too. So if you’re not a tea addict yet, I would go easy on the Iced Tea (it’s addictive – in the best possible way)!
