A nice cup of tea is one of those essential simple pleasures in life. Teapigs makes whole leaf tea, meticulously sourced and carefully packaged to preserve the flavour. It’s a brand of the tea made for those who appreciate tea, but enjoy the convenience of making tea with a tea bag. Chris is partial to their green teas whilst the honeybush and rooibos blend is one of my favourites. Rooibos tea, also known as Rooibosch or Redbush tea, is a South African tea now enjoyed in many parts of the world.
My six year old could live on the super fruit infusion. She loves fruit and herbal teas because they’re a carb-free, a caffeine-free drink she can order when we stop in for a coffee somewhere and has started making a list of cafès in her notebook that serve Teapigs Super Fruit.
Teapigs tea cost more than the average, around 20-30p per tea bag depending on the stockist (Pukka tea is around 13p per mug whilst the average supermarket mixed blend is less than 1p per mug), but put in perspective 25p for a decent cup of tea isn’t exactly breaking the bank.
The Ergohacks Verdict
Teapigs tea cost more than the average, around 20-30p per tea bag depending on the stockist (Pukka tea is around 13p per mug whilst the average supermarket mixed blend is less than 1p per mug), but put in perspective 25p for a decent cup of tea isn’t exactly breaking the bank. It certainly isn’t tea dust wrapped in a paper-and-plastic-composite-bag. It’s full flavoured and one tea bag easily makes a small pot of tea. Teapigs’ blends are well balanced and exquisitely well made. Highly recommended.
Price: ± £4 – £4.50 (12 servings), £9 – 12 (50 servings)
Available from stockists in over 35 countries across Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
“Nick and Louise started Teapigs in November 2006 with one mission – to get the nation drinking real tea again. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there’s a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren’t getting the attention they deserve. And so Teapigs was born.”*
