Mr Squeaks Tea Company is not your average brew

Tea for me is the perfect aromatic beverage be it this thing in the morning or at night. I love your old fashioned classic English Breakfast tea but I am also partial to herbal teas, chai and black tea. Tea is such a popular hot drink with us Brits and thus there is a vast range on the market but some tea producers have begun to get a little more inventive with their teas, as to not just to give a great tasting cuppa but giving their tea leaves the wow factor which Mr Squeaks certainly hits the X factor.

Courtesy of Mr Squeaks I was kindly gifted a few PR samples to review at home and I was wowed.

Mr Squeaks

Mr Squeaks Tea Company is a new specialist tea company based in the Leigh-on-sea area of Essex. They are a family run business, managed and owned by Kim Dawson and Dave Dawson.

​As tea lovers, they are dedicated in creating and sourcing the very best loose-leaf tea and tea service products but Mr Squeaks Tea Company is a far cry from the average brew. Not only are their teas great in taste, they smell and look beautiful too.

Sorsa Kombucha brewing – Organic, Raw & Low Sugar Drink‎

Do you love tea? Then did you know that tea especially green tea, is often said to be good for your health as it contains substances which are linked to lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. However though moderate intake is recommended as drinking too much could lead to negative side effects, such as anxiety, headaches, digestive issues, and disrupted sleep patterns.

Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink which is commonly consumed for its supposed health benefits.

Lately there has been a major surge in popularity, for Kombucha even though it has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially a sweetened tea which is fermented with the help of a SCOBY. SCOBY is an acronym, which stands for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. It’s an odd looking thing bit like a flat slippery rubbery pancake but it’s the essential ingredient in making Kombucha. Its flavours can range from a vinegary to a sweet champagne like taste according to the brew and fermentation.

But what makes Kombucha better than other tea? Well Kombucha has many great health benefits and is rich in beneficial probiotics and contains antioxidants, and can kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases.

It is said to be healthy for your gut health, it reduces the risk of cancer, reduced infection, helps with mental health, heart disease, helps with weight loss, improve liver health, and helps with type 2 diabetes management.

So when I was gifted a brewing kit to brew my own Kombucha courtesy of Sorsa I just had to take up the challenge in brewing.
