National Tea Day on 21st April is celebrated with many but especially with the National Tea Day organizers.
They hold events all over the Country to enjoy this event including a National Tea Day Festival which takes place at Kensington Roof Gardens in West London where guests can enjoy the feeling of an afternoon garden party in the heart of the Capital.
Some featured Afternoon Tea Day events were held at Hoar Cross Hall, Derbyshire. The Midland Hotel, Manchester, brewbabu in Peterborough, The Chase Hotel, Coventry and many more exciting places. After looking through the National Tea Day list of locations I am sure you will find many you have never tried before.
They even have a number of charities which benefit from National Tea Day. They believe that tea is all about bringing people together, whether it be families, friends or communities. National Tea Day is working with charitable organisation’s in order to raise awareness of good causes.
I received another batch of Tea Tourist Teas to review and also gave some to my daughter to try as she loves loose tea and has become quite a tea addict but loves trying new flavours.
Cherry Sencha Green Tea by Cheshire Tea was one my daughter tried and she gave a rate of 4 out of 5. This fragrant green tea helps you to relax and unwind and the juices of cherries give it a subtle sweet edge so a lovely tea to drink with afternoon tea or a pudding.
Brockley Breakfast Tea above is made by the Good & Proper Tea Company and is great as a breakfast tea with a traditional base of Assan, Kenya and Ceylon tea which is complimented by aromatic notes of Darjeeling.
A perfect tea to start your day which can be topped with a dash of tea. I prefer it with a dash of tea and would definitely give it a 5 rating.
This Black & Dandelion Tea is made by O’Teas from in Hertfordshire and the Isle of Man. This popular black tea combined with the nourishing roots of dandelion flowers makes it burst with health benefits.
They say that the root of this yellow flower is thought to be great for digestion and weight loss. It is a perfect detox tea for everyday use and can be served with a touch of milk and honey if required.
I’ve just starting drink this twice a day and enjoy it with just a bit of honey and will let you know if the weight drops off. I would give the flavour of this black tea a 4 out of 5 rating.
The Gunpowder Tea above is from a tea company called The UK Loose Leaf Tea Company based in London.
This is what they call a punchy, full flavoured, tightly rolled green tea, and an all day classic with a rich roasted flavour and best served without milk and sweetened with honey if required.
Blend No 45 is made by Edgecumbes Tea Blenders from Arundel and is a full bodied aromatic blend of orthodox leaf black tea which is designed as a tea to drink at any time especially with breakfast or afternoon tea. I would definitely give this a 5 out of 5 rating.
The Ben Shan Oolong is by Tea in the City who are based in London. This tea is a lightly roasted Oolong from China’s Fujian Province. It comes completely unflavoured and is a great tea to have with your puddings or fruit. Another four our of 5 from me for this tea.
