ENJOY A CUP OF CALM…

Tea has lots of health benefits and with so many flavours to choose from it can become a bit of dilemma which one to choose.

If you need a up of something calming after a stressful day then brew up a pot of Clearspring Mu Tea (£4.39) – ‘Mu’ means ‘an ideal state of balance’ in  Japanese and the tea is a blend of 12 organic plant ingredients designed to help restore stability to your mood.

It’s caffeine-free and contains mandarin orange peel, liquorice root, Japanese ginseng, cinnamon and other exotic oriental herbs that combine to create a sweet tasting, spicy and aromatic blend.

Mu Tea was formulated by the Japanese diet and health philosopher, George Ohsawa (founder of the Macrobiotic diet and philosophy), in the 1950s based on his studies of the energetic properties of traditional oriental herbs.

COOK FASTER…

Home is where the heart is

If you are looking for a new hob then try the ‘induction’ hob from Beko as it saves time and energy by cooking at an amazing 36% faster than a gas hob and yet uses 56% less energy.

This is because it only heats the surface that’s in contact with the pain. It has nine cooking levels per zone and its black ceramic suface is easy to clean.
