Whittards Fruit Tea // My Thoughts

I have been slowing getting through my tea Hamper I received at Christmas. I had the last tea sachet today and was quite sad as it made a lovely treat. I also got given a hot chocolate hamper and because I gave fruit tea to my close family we’ve had a lot to get through.

So I thought today would be an appropriate time to share my views on Whittards Fruit Tea. This particular hamper is still available on the official website for £12.00. Click here for the link. They also have a massive range of other fab gifts so make sure to take a look!

Anyways let’s get on with my review…..I thought the tin of samples was a lovely idea and was lovely to open on Christmas day. Included were four different flavours two fruit flavours, a peppermint and then a ginger one. My Favs had to be the two fruit ones raspberry and peach and then pomegranate and orange.

The taste of each one was very authentic and I loved the idea of trying four different flavours. I really enjoyed drinking the tea and it put me in a good mood. My all-time fav tea brand is Pukka but I would say this brand is a close second. I’ve really got into drinking special tea over the last year. I also think it’s become a bit trendier. I highly recommend giving herbal and fruit teas a try!

Do you like drinking tea? What kind do you have? :-) xx

I’ve Been Baking // Happy Easter!!

Yesterday I did some baking so thought I would show you the results. I made mini egg cookies. I used a basic cookie recipe and added the mini eggs on top just before baking. I got the recipe from a book called ‘Easy Peasy Sweetie Pie’ it is a beginners baking book from an author called Mary Contini. Click here to buy the book from Amazon.

I love baking it’s a cool hobby to have in my opinion. I have been experimenting with a couple of recipes over the year so far. I’ve tried different biscuits recipes including heart shaped valentines biscuits, chocolate cookies etc. The recipe before last I made flapjacks. If you are interested in seeing the photos I have created a folder on Flickr click here to see.

I also have a passion for photography which I hope comes across in my blog. Most times I bake I try and capture some photos. I’ve noticed lots of other similar blog posts over the Easter weekend so far. Have you been baking? Feel free to post a link below if you have a blog post! :-)

I hope you all are having an awesome bank holl weekend. Sending Easter wishes to you all :-) xxx
