Recently we stumbled upon Tea Shirt, a london-based company run by a couple passionate about tea and the culture surrounding it. We are always on the lookout for new exciting tea brands so when the lovely Kriszti from Tea Shirt sent us a variety of their blends to try we were like children in a sweetshop!
Today we are kicking off Ten Days Of Tea Shirt! In order to celebrate this lovely independent company we will be sharing with you over the next ten days a selection of the teas that Tea Shirt make. The first tea we are trying is Caramel Carrot…
Caramel Carrot (100g for £4.99)
This blend is a fruit and vegetable blend consisting of carrot, apple, pineapple,cream caramel pieces. This tea gives a soothing and sweet hit of caramel initially followed by the delicate tones of carrot. The sweetness of this blend isn’t overpowering, keeping it a soothing yet refreshing blend.
This blend also works really well as a latte it is flavoursome enough that with copious amounts of milk froth it holds its flavour and is a much healthier option than those caramel lattes you may get from high street coffee shops!
To make your own Caramel Carrot Latte…
- Add one teaspoon of Caramel Carrot tea to 250ml boiling water
- Leave to brew for 12 minutes
- Whilst your tea is brewing heat 80mls of milk (we used soya wholebean)
- Froth the milk
- Add the milk froth to your tea
- Top it off with a sprinkling of cinnamon
(P.S. Add some honey if you fancy something extra comforting or have a sore throat!)
See you again tomorrow for another cup of Tea Shirt!
