two for tea

 Recently I was super lucky to win a giveaway over on Sarah's blog, sew love tea do. My prize was a packet of "it's chai" organic tea from the informal tea company. I hadn't heard of the company before the giveaway and I don't want you to be without such knowledge so I'm spreading the word!

First up, this tea smells divine! I find myself just opening up the packet for a sniff. Yip I'm weird, I'm ok with that. I'm a big time coffee drinker and I do want to cut back, I think this tea might just be the coffee replacement I've been looking for. Did I mention it's organic? Also no added flavours, give it a big tick!

Today I teamed a cup of chai with some flourless chickpea blondie, recipe via Pinterest. My version was a white chocolate one (due to the fact I had no other chocolate) and it was good. Are you thinking I've got a lot of tea strainers for someone who doesn't drink tea? Yeah my husband is thinking the same, ahem. That's not all of them either.

I'm quite keen to try some of the other blends. They offer free shipping in NZ too!

Have you discovered a great NZ company lately? I'd love to hear about any great places/shops you have discovered.

*This is not a sponsored post, I just love this tea and want you to know about it too! 


  1. the guys at informal are sponsoring the tea for a public frock swap I am holding as part of the Hamilton Fringe in Sept and I couldn't be more chuffed - delish! They seem like pretty awesome peeps to boot and one can't fault their win win!

  2. that first pic of the tea almost looks like a gorgeous woody potpourri Louana - kind of like it should be sitting in a little wooden bowl smelling yummy :-) I am seriously envious of your tea strainer collection too :-)

    I too have a 'couple'

  4. Glad you loved it as much as me Louana :) xx Delish aye
