So trying to be more healthy, and cut down on caffeine I stumble across some organic teas from Heath & Heather. £2.49 RRP. I know green tea is great for you but on its own I find it a little much, so I was excited to try these blends. I admit I did fall a little bit for the cute packaging which does look much more high-end than some other brands and the innovative flavours that I had not seen before.
Heath & Heather was first established in 1920 by Samuel Ryder, an entrepreneur whose fortune was made selling garden seeds in penny packets.

Looking on their website they do a huge range of teas, all of which look lovely.I was also attracted to the fact the tea was organic. I was disappointed with the fact that apart from the Moroccan Mint, the Coconut and Manuka Honey were actually just flavours added in, rather than ingredients, which seemed to move away from the natural image they portrayed.
Moroccan Mint: Really lovely soft flavour, however it become bitter quickly if you steep the tea for too long. A refreshing afternoon pick me up.
Coconut: If I am honest I didn’t really get the flavour too strongly here. I was hoping for a stronger taste. You could smell the coconut slightly when steeping but that was about it.
Manuka Honey: For me I wanted this to be a health double whammy, but considering the honey was just flavouring I was let down. I could taste the honey flavour which was nice and sweetened the tea slightly but with none of the benefits. Next time I might just have some green tea and stir in a 1/2 a tsp of Manuka Honey!
Are they nice teas? yes do they live up the to cute packaging. I would say not really, and average tea in a high end box.
