Cosy Tea Review & Giveaway

Tea. It holds a very special place in my heart. As a kid/teen I really didn't like any kind of tea, but as a student a very special friend introduced me to it (as well as veganism!) and for that I'm forever thankful. I've tried many MANY kinds, but if I'm honest I'm not such a fan of a lot of brands available in supermarkets. I like to be able to taste my tea.

I was very kindly sent a set of lovely Cosy Tea and I've been thoroughly testing it over the weekend. I'm a big Roobios fan, but with nine flavours to try I wasn't going to stop there. They are - Breakfast, Earl Grey, Roobios, Chamomile, Lemon Green, Jasmine Green, Peppermint & Blueberry.

I just love the packaging - the pictures on the boxes are imagines of knitting, and each box features the name of the knitter. You can even look HERE for details on knitting your own tea cosy. What could be more Cosy than knitting? They are fully organic, fairtrade, Viva! and Vegetarian Society approved.

I tested the Breakfast, Earl Grey and Roobios with soya milk and a tiny bit of sugar. I always steep my teabags for about 5 minutes whatever the packaging says (tea making is almost a science!). They were all delicious, I think everybody has their favorites - and my firm one is still Roobios, however I was pleasantly surprised by the Blueberry and Jasmine Green - perhaps they could be new contenders!

If you fancy giving it a go - then listen up! The kind folks at Cosy Tea have agreed to provide two lucky winners with sets of all nine flavours! All you need to do is enter below - I'll contact the winners once the giveaway has ended & it's only open to UK residents.
