SPOTLIGHT: TRADE AID CHILLI PEPPERS

I scored these particular peppers on clearance from the Trade Aid warehouse, but always have a packet or two in the cupboard to add a little zing to my cooking. It’s great to have ingredients like this – which would be very difficult to grow locally – available from reputably ethical sources.

SPOTLIGHT: CLIPPER GREEN TEA WITH ECHINACEA

I bought this lovely green tea blend heading into flu season as echinacea is a great boost to the immune system, and I’d take tea over pills any day. Green teas vary wildly in quality and taste, so if they are too strong or musky I’ll often hate them, but this was a great mesh of subtlety with a fruity kick. It’s obvious that when it comes to quality crafted teas, the British are the experts.
