Mooding it up with teapigs and making the perfect cuppa with a KitchenAid Artisan Kettle

I love herbal teas and when I first had my first ever teapig which was peppermint on-board P&O Britannia my I was hooked from there I tried many other various teas throughout my cruise.

When I got back I contacted teapigs to tell them how I was wowed by their herbal teas and how I love the fact that all their teabags are made using biodegradable tea bags being very safe for the environment. I also learned that apparently different teas can effect your mood in different ways which intrigued me. So teapigs kindly gifted me a tea from each mood-o-meter range to try out at home.
