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.

Plus to make the perfect tea I will be reviewing about the KitchenAid artisan temperature kettle.

Firstly here is more about teapigs and KitchenAid

Did you know you can enjoy an afternoon tea underneath the Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark is one of the main vocal points of Greenwich which many people gaze upon and even board. However did you know that you can enjoy an afternoon tea under her?

I had the pleasure of being invited on a complimentary basis to take a tour of the Cutty Sark before enjoying an afternoon tea under her belly.

The Cutty Sark

The Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship and was built back in 1869 to challenge the best tea clippers on the China tea run.

Built on the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland for Jock Willis Shipping Line, the Cutty Sark was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest.

For her first few years the Cutty Sark was used to transport tea back and forth from England to China before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years.

In 1895 the Cutty Sark was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until purchased in 1922 by retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman, who used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth in Cornwall. After his death, Cutty Sark was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College in Greenhithe in 1938 where she became an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954, she had ceased to be useful as a cadet ship and was transferred to here in Greenwich within a permanent dry dock for the public to enjoy.
