One pyramid bag does a large mug perfectly and great for a teapot too of course...
Show off your tea in style with our stainless steel caddies. Don't be surprised that they come with the odd blemish to look more used. We like them that way...
The card tubes are recyclable and the tea inside is packed in a clear Natureflex wrapper - which is completely compostable. So no plastic. The tubes are also food grade lined so are a great way to store your tea once opened. All good.
Our tea bags are made from biodegradable cornstarch so can be put in with your food waste for commercial composting. They're not suitable for home composting.
Prefer it loose leaf? Then please click here - it's available in 100g tube or larger 250g bag. Both plastic free.
To be honest - and I'm being very honest here - I'm not a fan of straight mint teas so I don't drink them... but obviously this is the best there is :o)
5 star tea.
I have tried a variety of peppermint teas over the years and this has got to be my favourite. Full of flavour and very refreshing. Great delivery too, I like the added touch of te coaster.
Make a strong refreshing cup - for my first hot drink of the day. There is just a greater depth of flavour than your standard supermarket peppermint teas, which makes it hard to go back to previous brews. First tasted it at Café Grande (Bruntsfield, Edinburgh) and saved the tag to track it down. Only reason not 5 Stars is the string on the tag could be longer - too easily sucked into the cup when you poor water over it.
In my opinion this is the best peppermint tea on the market and I have tried a lot! Apart from the flavour, which is wonderful, this tea is able to settle an upset stomach and refresh the pallet. Another superb product from a superb supplier! Thank you.
Good strong peppermint taste.
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
|Tea Type||Approx Brewing Time (mins)||Water Temperature|
If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
