Top 5 teas chosen by Sophie
We drink a lot of loose leaf tea here at Steenbergs. All of us tend to change around our favourites depending on the weather or our moods.
Currently I'm favouring tea without milk and my current favourite picks are:
Morning Brew - this caffeine free herbal infusion is the way Sophie starts each morning, with its blend of redbush, oatstraw, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and orange peel. (This brew has just become organic at Steenbergs - finally managed to track down some organic oatstraw)
Rose and Bergamot - this is Sophie's current favourite of all of the Earl Grey style teas that Steenbergs blend. Great for all day drinking It's a floral mix and adds cardamom in a Persian style twist to this tea.
Organic Green tea with lemon verbena and ginger - this is a very cleansing tea with the great flavours of lemon verbena and ginger, perfect for all day drinking - although Sophie moves to it particularly in the afternoon.
Organic Happy Hippy Tea - One of the beautiful teas - a blend of organic chamomile, organic double mint and organic rose petals. Completely caffeine free, a very mellow tea, one that Sophie drinks in the evening.
Organic Fairtrade English Breakfast - this is our standard cuppa, to be drunk black, with milk, with or without sugar, it has malty overtones and is a very refreshing brew.
