Remedy Drinks refreshing, tasty and healthy

If you love cold tea then you will love Remedy Kombuchas which are not just refreshing but also has many health benefits.

I was gifted a batch of cans from their drinks to sample for an honest review.

Remedy Drinks

Founders Sarah and Emmet Condon originally started Remedy in their kitchen making Kombucha. They wanted to do something good. Shake things up. They knew that healthy could also be tasty and easy. They believed we all deserve to know that too. So with that in mind they moved on from the kitchen bench, and began producing small batches all of which are brewed for 30 days resulting in the tastiest and healthiest Kombucha.

TEASPEC travel with a cup of tea at hand

Scientists say a hot cup of tea on a scorching summer’s day will cool you down more than an ice-cold beverage. Thanks to TEASPEC I can now enjoy a hot cup of tea no matter where I am to either keep me warm on cold days or cooled down during hot days.

I won a TEASPEC Lazy Go Travel Tumbler and was gifted on a courtesy basis TEASPEC’s Opus Raw Pu’er tea to try out on my travels.

TEASPEC

Founded in 2015 TEASPEC introduced tea enthusiasts to the world of Pu’er and other Chinese teas.

They chose the name TEASPEC because they consider their teas to be a higher quality and level of craftsmanship. The SPEC suffix is derived from the word specification to denote the precise classification of their teas and TEASPEC’s desire to set the standard for Pu’er and Chinese tea.

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.

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.
