The Friday Review - Oteas

Hello there,

Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - we hope you're having a tea-riffic day!

Ok....so it's not Friday (our lovely scheduling tool didn't fancy working!) but we are here with a new tea review for you!

A little while ago the lovely people from Oteas got in touch, asking whether we'd be interested in sampling some of their teas....and I'm sure you all know the answer we gave! Oteas is a UK based tea company who blend teas from around the world, including Sri Lanka. China and Japan.  Oteas have a desire to promote an active, healthy and balanced lifestyle and their teas come in seven different ranges including black, detox, fruit, green, herbal, organic and rooibos.

Oteas offer teas in both loose leaf form and also pyramid tea bag and they sent us the cutest individually boxed teas to try....take a look at these...

Teas from Oteas

Each little box has a tea bag inside...perfect for creating tea adventures for yourself or if you're feeling generous a tea-loving friend!

In my first selection I had Yasumi tea, ginger tea and an English breakfast tea....

The English breakfast is a full-bodied blend of Ceylon tea and Assam teas, perfect for starting the day! The Yasumi tea is a mix of traditional green tea with notes of berry and mint. This tea is like summer in a cup - a pretty yellow colour when brewed and quite fruity in taste.

Finally we have the Ginger tea, which is a sweet, fruity tea - good for cheering you up on a grey day!

The second set of teas included a lemongrass, ginger and cinnamon tea, Oteas Pure tea and a vanilla flavoured Rooibos...

The malty rooibos has been combined with a splash of sweet vanilla to create a soothing blend, which can be enjoyed at anytime of the day. The lemongrass, ginger and cinnamon tea is smooth but spicy, a wonderfully warming cuppa!

Finally the wellness tea - pure...

Believe it or not this is a white tea! The colour comes from the beetroot pieces in the blend! The tea itself smells very fruity, but doesn't taste as fruity as it smells! Its another comforting cuppa, perfect for the autumn months. 

I loved the little individual boxes, which you can buy individually from the website. It allows you to try teas you might not normally pick and discover new favourites. The Oteas range has something for everyone!

I'd like to thank Oteas for sending us these teas to try - if you'd like to learn more about the company or see the whole range pop by the Oteas website.

Have you tried Oteas? Which is your favourite? We'd love to hear about it!

Thanks for popping by today,
Rachel & Lorna
