Tomorrow I will continue posting but I strongly suggest for you all to also take a moment of silence and stay away from tumblr.
This Week on health-heaven
Beetroot, pomegranate & parsnip soup
Chilli chocolate mousse
I never wrote tea review, so I hope I did a good job. :)
I love tea, I think I have over 300 tea bags in my kitchen, but for the last few months I fell in love with Twinings tea. Amazing flavors, healthy, and natural, what more could you want ?
I’m drinking Cranberry & Sanguinello orange tea at the moment.
Now lets talk about tea, I made 4 groups.
1. Fruit love
Cranberry, Raspberry and Elderflower, Cranberry and Sanguinello Orange, Blackcurrant, Ginseng and Vanilla, Blueberry and Apple, Strawberry and Mango, Echinacea and Raspberry, Raspberry, Strawberry and Loganberry, Cranberry and Pomegranate
Cranberry, Raspberry and Elderflower; I have never tasted a tea as delicious as this one. The zesty taste of this infusion is ideal when your senses need a lift. The tea smells invitingly of raspberries, when poured is a lovely red color. Thank you so much for making the most delicious teas.
Cranberry and Sanguinello Orange; I love this tea, for me it has perfect citrusy scent. I love to eat sanguinello oranges, so yes this is one of my favorites! All I have to say is buy it, you will like it! Yum yum yum
Blackcurrant, Ginseng and Vanilla; this is the first tea I tried from Twinings, at first I didn’t like it I blame it on ginseng root. But as I love vanilla and blackcurrant I decided not to give up on this tea. And now I can say I’m addicted, I bought another box.
Blueberry and Apple; Autumn. A time for kicking through the leaves and watching the world change color. And for those days when night time comes too soon you will need this tea. It is tasty, sweet and refreshing perfect combination.
Strawberry and Mango; Each sip is refreshing, satisfying and bursting with sunshine. It’s English summertime with a tropical twist. If you love mango you will love this tea!
Echinacea and Raspberry; do I need to say this is my favorite fruit tea ? I love it, not only echinacea has ability to boost immune systems and keep them healthy, but raspberries are my favorite fruit! Buy it!!
Raspberry, Strawberry and Loganberry; great smell, great taste, great berries! Love it, I love to drink it with ice and fresh raspberries mmm, it’s heaven!
Cranberry and Pomegranate; I like other teas more, its ok. Nothing new, but If you love cranberry and pomegranate you will love this tea!
2. Green tea heaven
Pure Green Tea, Jasmine Green Tea, Cranberry Green Tea, Orange and Lotus Flower Green Tea, Pineapple and Grapefruit Green Tea, Citrus Green Tea, Apple and Pear Green Tea
Pure Green Tea; I think we all know that pure green tea is great for your health. I love Twinings pure green tea because you can taste real green tea flavor.
Jasmine Green Tea; Layering the white jasmine flowers between green tea leaves allows them to release their perfumed, floral fragrance into the tea. Great refreshing and calming tea. The jasmine tends to sweeten the green tea taste and the aroma is certainly an inducement to drink the tea.
Cranberry Green Tea; Powerful anti-oxidant properties, considered a superfood, cranberries, and the tea derived from them, have an amazing array of healthy side effects when ingested and used on a consistent basis.
Orange and Lotus Flower Green Tea; Lotus flowers are a symbol of the sun. Their beautiful, fragrant petals unfurl each day at the break of dawn to reveal a pure and inner glow. Lotus flower is one of my favorite flowers, so you can guess this is one of my favorites.
Pineapple and Grapefruit Green Tea; Sweet, delicious and refreshing tea. You will love this, the fruit flavor with green is just right.
Citrus Green Tea; I love this tea, it helps me to wake up and gives me energy. The polyphenols present in green tea provide antioxidant protection that may be enhanced by the vitamins in lemon and other citrus.
Apple and Pear Green Tea; English apple and sweet pear and blended them together with this light tasting, golden Chinese green tea, which will transport you to the tea gardens in an instance. It is yummy , if we can say that for a tea.
3. Lady in black
Lady Grey, Earl Grey, Mulled Spiced Tea Caddy, Assam, Darjeeling, Ceylon, English Breakfast
Lady Grey; Light and delicate taste of bergamot, but with added hints of oranges and lemons.With green tea, lady grey is my second favorite tea!! I think I drink this tea every day. I love this tea, it makes me happy!!
Earl Grey; Light, fragrant and with a distinctive bergamot and lemon flavor. I love it, I don’t know why but for me it tastes same as Lady Grey.
Mulled Spiced Tea Caddy; This tea is best served with milk and sugar, to bring out the spicy flavor perfect for a Winter Tea. It has a taste of orange which is gorgeous.
Assam; it is tea you will love a rich and strong, deep-amber tea that goes perfectly with brunch or after dinner instead of coffee. It smells amazing.
Darjeeling; The altitude gives Darjeeling its light, delicate taste and shimmering gold color. Take a sip and escape the world on a journey of your own. The flavor was rich and wonderfully nuanced: musky, Darjeeling flowery, toasty, nutty, spicy, a little smoky, with a splendid honey and floral finish.
Ceylon; Ceylon black tea is the most widely produced and recognized and has citrus overtones. Ceylon black tea is also useful at keeping viruses and bacteria at bay. Drinking black tea can reduce your chance of catching influenza, as well as boost your immune system to help prevent other illnesses. I love it, something new to try if you love black tea.
English Breakfast; Bright, full-bodied and full of flavor, English Breakfast is perfect for clearing away your cobwebs at any time of day. I don’t drink it with milk, but if you want you can drink it with a splash of milk. An ingredient present in English breakfast tea, the amino acid L-theanine, boosts the brain’s levels of alpha waves, which reduces anxiety and boosts relaxation.
4. Calm yourself
Camomile, Lemon and Ginger, Pure Peppermint, Orange, Mango and Cinnamon
Pure Camomile; I love camomile tea, I drink it every time I want to calm down and when I have insomnia.
Lemon and Ginger; I have to say this is one of my favorites. Amazing tea, it is a little bit bitter, but it is healthy and really great tea to drink on cold winter nights. The spiciness of the ginger complements the zesty.
Pure Peppermint; I think we all know and love peppermint tea. I love Twinings because you taste pure peppermint and it’s light and refreshing with a cooling minty taste.
Orange, Mango and Cinnamon; Just as winter balances summer, the spicy, comforting taste of cinnamon perfectly balances the bright, sweet flavors of orange and mango. I love this tea. You should try it, spicy and fruity love it!
