Chloe Likes To Eat... *

Tea. I like tea. And yes I know you don't EAT tea, but still... For me, tea is also pretty synonymous with Twinings.

I didn't grow up in a household where tea was a regular fixture, at least not the 1-finger-of-milk-or-2 kind. But during the time I spent growing up in a hotel, there was afternoon tea in the office most days. My first memorable experience of tea remains peppermint tea at 1700.

Fast forward a few (more than I care to admit to) years and I'm now an avid tea drinker. I love fruit teas and spiced teas, I like black breakfast tea occasionally but one of my go-to's is the above. lemon and ginger tea.

Why do I like it? It's spicy but refreshing at the same time. It's great with a squeeze of honey when you have a cold, or just good and strong for a lift in the late afternoon- well it is part of the revive and revitalise range. For me, this is the taste of comfort, of progress and of I-Can-Do-This.

And a few other awesome things about Twinings that you should really know:

You can get free samples of not one, but TWO teas from their website HERE.
Did you know that they have a Royal seal of approval? Oh yes they do, by appointment to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
Twinings also have a HUGE range of teas- black teas, fruit teas, classic teas, loose leaf teas and a new range of green teas- DESPERATE to try the Green Tea with pineapple and grapefruit and Green Tea with Peach and Cherry Blossom. Sadly I live in a rural abyss where it appears people only buy Earl Grey, so called 'Normal' tea and lemon tea....
And of course you can find the Twinings Facebook page and Twinings on Twitter.

Go on then. Off you go. What are you waiting for?

Oh I love a good cuppa tea. I've never really been a coffee drinker [although I love a latte] so I'm the stereotypical British tea drinker in the states. I love my Yorkshire tea but I also love the Earl Grey and I have rather a wide variety of fruity teas particularly strawberry and blackcurrant. I cool them both down in the fridge and drink them cold now that it's getting warmer - they are a lovely way to cool down.  Me and the boy try and have play dates going for afternoon tea if we're on holiday somewhere - it's one of our little customs.

I love this tea! I buy it whenever I have a cold and it instantly makes me feel better :)

I drink regular breakfast tea most of the time though, save this one as a special cold remedy!x

It's brilliant as a cold remedy- I used to add a squeeze of honey and an extra dash of lemon juice for an extra boost with colds.

I love afternoon tea, but don't do it anywhere as often as I should.

Fruit teas make awesome iced tea, I do that in summer too, although I always find that they need a teaspoon of sugar when making, to taste nice cold.

I'm not mad keen on blackcurrant, but peppermint is awesome cool and anything grapefruit, I'm THERE!

This is my favourite tea. In fact, I'm drinking some right now!

My mum always has this tea and she is SO funny about not drinking 'fancy teas' so it has to be good right?

I think it's probably my favourite, or at least one of 2/3 favourites. It's awesome chilled if made with a tiny amount of sugar!

Right! It IS awesomeness in a mug.
