Gentlemen, start your kettles: April 21st is National Tea Day! But it's not just for drinking. Oh no. Here are some of our favourite ways to join the tea party.
Fancy a Fresh Mint infusion? Or a classic Earl Grey? Kiss Air Candles has a new duo of tea-scented candles, plus Jam Sponge, Lemon Drizzle and Chocolate Cake scents.
It might seem odd but this recipe from Healthfection uses a mint teabag to give this nutritious soup a proper minty kick, alongside ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
British brand Oteas launched last summer, with a range of organic teas including Korean Sencha Jeocha, South African Rooibos, Tropical Delight, Lemongrass and Apple, and Lemon and Rosemary. The teabags are also biodegradable – ECO-WIN!
Innermost introduced its range of nutritional supplements last year with an attitude of avoiding jargon and focusing on health instead of body image. Its Health booster is vegan and contains matcha among other goodies that can be made into tea or added to smoothies.
Want to wake up like a supermodel? The Super Elixir Sleep Welle Fortified Calming Tea, from Elle Macpherson's nutritional tea brand WelleCo, tackles stress, anxiety and insomnia with plant-based ingredients to give you a good night's kip.
