PG tips have bought a fabulous new range of fruit, herbal green teas and I was so excited to try them out as I love tea!

Sew White pg tips fruit, herbal green teas

The new flavours are amazing!

These teas unlike some other herbal and fruit teas are strong, tasty and very satisfying.

I have a huge love for the red berries, aromatic spices, red bush and vanilla. I may have had gone through the boxes of these three very quickly!

The green tea is lovely. Rich and very clean tasting. It is a very good green tea.
The orange tea was surprising. It tasted like a mix of orangina and peaches. This worked very very well as an iced tea.
The jasmine tea was a lot stronger than I thought it would be for a floral taste but was smooth too. It was very easy to drink quickly!
The lemon tea was refreshing and is lovely first thing in the morning.
The raspberry tea was sweet and fruity and very lovely. Another great one for ice tea.
The camomile was delightful and so good in the evening. Very calming and happy making.
The peppermint tea is a classic and always good.
The red berries are sweet and is a lovely reminder of summer.
The Redbush and vanilla tea is soft and gentle but the vanilla is stronger than you think it would be but it’s lovely.
The spices and mint is delicious. It reminds me of Christmas and autumn evenings.
The little monkey toy is a brilliant addition too. The minute it was out my cat Fitz took monkey and put it in his bed and cuddled up to it. It was very sweet.

What works so well with everyone of these teas is turning them in to iced teas which are wonderful in this lovely sunny warm weather.

This recipe works with all these teas but my favourite to make it with is the red berries tea. The tea is such a gorgeous red, it’s like a little cocktail.

    I love the sound of the redbush and vanilla – I gave up caffeine about 4 years ago, so always looking for interesting new decaf options! Will give them a go, thanks!

      Thank you for the comment Emily! The redbush one is so good. I love vanilla and although it’s an odd taste to have in tea it works very well. I love your blog x

    Gosh PG tips is pushing the boat out – interesting. Rooibos and vanilla sounds good as does the spicy one and I love your recipe for iced tea – hadn’t thought of doing that.

      Thank you Choclette, I only discovered iced tea last summer and was shocked/annoyed about how easy it was. If I knew it was so easy I would have been making them for years!
      The new range from PG tips is really good. Tasty and refreshing. X

    Delicious! I have tried the lemon and the plain green tea varieties and they are delicious. I’m trying to quit the caffeine so these are just perfect for me. Thanks for the iced tea recipe too, sounds perfect for the summer.
