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.

Whittard Chelsea

Walter Whittard back in the 19th century at the age of 17 he took on a job with a tea trader in London’s bustling city centre. Eight years later he opened up his own shop W.H. Whittard in the bustling Fleet Street, with a simple philosophy to ‘buy the best’. Walter insisted on blending his tea and roasting his coffee on site. It wasn’t long before Walter started to make a name for himself.

Outerspace Vodka out of this world

Vodka is one of my favourite spirits but I have never ever had a vodka quite like Outerspace Vodka. Outerspace Vodka comes within a bottle shaped on an alien head, you know those classic green aliens with big bulging black eyes and the vodka within has been filtered through a four billion meteorite, making this vodka literally out of this world. Perfect for Halloween.

Outerspace Vodka

Outerspace Vodka landed in 2015 bringing consumers a vodka which is made from American corn and distilled five times and filtered through a four billion year old meteorite. Giving a vodka like no other from this world.

Pink Marmalade Gin magic in a bottle

We believe in love at first sight I believe in love at first gin. Pink Marmalade Gin is a premium gin like no other as it does not just taste great but it magically changes colour when adding tonic to it.

I was gifted a PR sample of Pink Marmalade Gin to enjoy within the comfort of my home.

Pink Marmalade Gin

Pink Marmalade was founded by purveyors of parties, drawn together to create immersive, hedonistic worlds and elevate event production beyond the everyday.

The gin is an expression of everything the creators wanted from quality to magic to bring people together to share in life’s simple pleasures of gin.

Pink Marmalade Gin is balanced with 13 botanicals, tastes exceptional and is magic in a bottle.

When mixed with tonic the gin magically turns from a cool blue to a subtle rose pink all thanks to the Butterfly Pea flower within.
