Amala Chai taste of India in a cup

I only recently discovered about Chai tea when I was on a cruise holiday and I instantly fell in love with it, from the creaminess and spices it produced. So when I heard about Amala Chai cardamon masala & black tea I just had to try it.

If you have not heard of Chai before it is a flavoured tea beverage which is made from black tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs. It originates from India and the beverage which has grown in popularity, becoming a feature in many coffee, tea houses and cruises.

Amala Chai given on a courtesy basis I was gifted a box to enjoy at home.

Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead Honey sweet as can be

Forget wine made from grapes indulge in a glass of Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead which is made from 100% honey.

I was gifted a bottle of Loxwood Meadworks on a complimentary basis to tantalise my taste buds and for my honest opinion.

Loxwood MeadWorks

Danny the founder of Loxwood Meadworks sold Mead for The Loxwood Joust which is a medieval festival which he runs. During his festivals he noticed how much people loved it, and wondered why no one seems to drink Mead anymore?So with that he bought it back but in a modern way to sell.

Starting from scratch he experimented, tasted, and got designing to create a signature Pure Mead which you see today.

It’s fermented dry, and then back-sweetened with honey, to give the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.

Unlike other Mead’s you may have tried before, their Pure Mead is created using 100% honey, fermented dry, and then back-sweetened with honey, giving the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.

Sweet as can be

I can’t drink wine as of the fermented grapes used within wines, so when I heard about Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead which is an alternative version but made out of 100% honey instead.
