London Tea Exchange Review

I have always had a strong bond with tea, butΒ always preferred teabags over loose tea leaves just because it is so much easier to make tea. Β But when I opened my mind towards loose tea leaves, I realised how manyΒ more options I have at hand, and how much I can experiment with various flavours, even making my own flavour.

During my loose tea leaves discovery, I was in London, and this is where I came across London Tea Exchange. Right next to the tea shop door, there were various teas one could sample. And so I did…

Entering the shop was like I was in heaven. Everywhere I look, it was tea and more tea… Over a hundred choices, and I couldn’t be more excited.. and confused.

It was hard to just choose just the one flavour, but since I never had chocolate or coconut flavoured tea, I thought that I should opt for a black tea… with these two flavours. May I say that…. It is magnificent?

The tea was given in a golden packaging which made it safely from London to Malta.

The tea itself looks something like the below… Although not cheap, it is very tasty and makes me feel all warm and tingly inside….

When in London, I’d suggest you give this shop a try, if like me, you are a massive tea lover πŸ˜‰

Tea in Summer

I think, a cuppa is my favourite non-alcoholic drink.

A side note for my foreign followers and readers:
Maltese Summer, especially August, is very hardcore; In the sense, it is very, very hot and humid. Imagine, a temperate of 35 degrees and 80+% humidity on a daily basis. That would feel like 40 to 45 degrees. Add onto that hot ‘desert’ wind to it. Although it might be nice for a week holiday, I’d sayΒ in my honest opinion is a nightmare to live in.

All the above, does not really put me off tea… I still feel the need for my morning tea with biscuits, afternoon tea and another right before I go to bed. The only issue is that is too warm for this.

I have tried bottled ice tea and home made ice tea… but this does not satisfy me as well as my tea with milk, or chocolate and coconut flavoured tea!

So, every morning, I make my tea, and drinkΒ it right in front of the fan, while I sweat like a pig…
The sweat is not by choice…
But living without tea, is just not for me.
