tea time












I don't like tea. How very un-British of me. (But to be fair, my mum is Finnish and loves tea, and dad who was English never drank tea.) I had to change my ways and have a cuppa though, as mum sent me the cutest tea ever. This is possibly the first time I've had tea in more than five years, haha! But with cute names, yummy-smelling flavours and pictures of the Moomins, how could I say no? "Moominmamma's Magic Potion" with rhubarb and strawberry flavours. "Sweetheart" with wild strawberry flavour. "I should know!" with lemon flavour. And "Go for it!" with blueberry muffin flavour. Sounds so good! I've only tried the blueberry muffin one and, as always with tea, was disappointed. Why does it smell so good and then the taste is such a let down and nowhere near the amazing smell? But I suppose tea drinkers would like these anyway. I'm just not one of those people!

Have a good weekend, all you lovelies♥!

The packaging for this tea is so adorable. I'm not a huge tea drinker either, but my aunt makes the most delicious of teas. Oh, and I've read your about me and I completely agree with you on Edinburgh :)

kb said...

Oh man the Moomins are too cute it hurts! They sound like they taste delicious! I'm British too and not all that into flavoured tea - I just like good old Early Grey :) x

Imogen said...

So sweet! I am the only one in my family who doesn't drink tea despite our British heritage.

Tallia said...

This is the cutest little things! And haha that's funny about your parents. I absolutely love tea but I loathe coffee so I guess you are either one or the other

I am mainly a coffee drinker and rarely drink hot tea but I have been thinking of exploring tea further since many of my friends swear by it.
