I just happened to enter into one of those competitions on Facebook, the ones where you comment and share and think to yourself, that was fun but I won't get anything. I always wondered whether anyone actually does win anything but yes they do as I was a winner. I received a lovely selection pack of teabags from Dorset Tea and very nice tea it is too.
These individual wrapped teabags came in a very handy little packet which frankly was that handy I could have carried it around in my handbag, had a flask of hot water as well and just had tea on the go. The packaging is very colourful and fun, very appealing even before you have ripped open the packet. When you do get one of these babies brewed you won't be disappointed, very nice flavours and a great taste to it.
The selection consisted of herbal, fruit and black tea blends such as:
Pure Green Tea
Green tea with Sunshine Lemon
Ginger and Sunshine Lemon
Strawberries and Cream
Wild about Mint
Earl of Dorset
That was enough to keep me going for a while, and have enjoyed them all but love the Green Tea with Sunshine Lemon, even the names are cute. Strawberries and Cream was nice warm but would be excellent cooled with some ice especially now we are summer bound and nearing Wimbledon. Yes you can even drink your strawberries and cream now.
These award winning teas were originally blended from founder Keith Spicer's kitchen in Bournemouth back in 1934 and now carried on within the company Dorset Tea which was created in 2009. Tea blenders Tony Warr and Jimmy Medhora are using their years of expertise to bring you full flavoured teas combined with their love of Dorset, who could resist? I certainly couldn't.
For all the information on Dorset Tea and for an extensive range of their tea and gift ideas to purchase go to the website at
They also stock their tea at some local supermarkets and you can search your local stockist on the website too.
Give them a go and see what you think. I love trying new teas and that was a real treat and if anyone else wants to send me endless amounts of tea to try just send it along. I will never get bored of tasting tea.
Thank you for reading and I will be back tomorrow for a bit of Whatever Wednesday.
