Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - today we have some very exciting news for you from our lovely friends at Piacha. Recently the fab London tea shop launched their Tea Mail subscription service - yes, tea lovers out there...you can join Piacha Tea Mail and have tea delivered straight to your door!
Piacha tea ships in a big envelope that fits through your letter box and packs in tea for two for a week. Better still....Piacha don't charge extra for UK delivery, and only 50p per tea for delivery in the EU.
Pia very kindly offered me the chance to try the subscription service for myself.....a real treat to be able to pick a tea out from the range! I easily set up my account via the Piacha website, picked my tea from the range and sat back and waited....

What wonderful post to recieve - a big envelope full of tea!
I opted to try Genmaicha - a jade green tea, blended with a generous helping of roasted brown rice. The leaves look really pretty with all the brown rice mixed in....

To brew this tea you should use 1-2 teaspoons of tea per mug. Add water at 80°C and infuse for 2 minutes - enjoy without milk. The tea once brewed is a pretty pale yellow colour and it has a nutty aroma....
The brown rice gives the tea a wonderful nutty flavour too, a bit like popcorn! It's a refreshing and unique taste - perfect if you are looking for something a little bit different!
The subscription service that Piacha offers is so flexible - you can opt to have a delivery as often as you want. As well as being flexible and easy to manage, it is also easy to unsubscribe, suspend or cancel orders at any point. Better still - tea bought via a subscription gives you a 10% discount on the standard prices!
