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.

SPOTLIGHT: SCARBOROUGH FAIR BLACK TEA

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.
