I had heard of this brand in whispers before, and the hot-choco-fan that I am, when I finally saw it I had to buy it. I found this in the fair trade store in the corner of the Addington Coffee Co-Op cafe in Christchurch for $4 a bar, and was mightily impressed.
This plain black tea is a staple in my pantry, as my general go-to ceylon for if somebody just wants “a cup of tea, nothing fancy.” It has a nice flavour and I prefer it over many of the equivalent brands – it isn’t a favourite by any means, but is my most common fall back that I always make sure I have a decent stash of.
Roobois tea, or red tea, is naturally caffeine free, and antioxidant rich, and the Trade Aid blend produced by Heiveld Co-Operative is my favourite blend. It has a vibrant colour, and a rich flavour whether you have it straight, with honey, or with milk.
A certified fair trade product made by the good people at Y Development Co-Operation in Thailand, this beautifully carved wooden frog makes a delightful sound when you run it’s matching rod up its back.
