Easter Teas You Have To Try! 

Hey there Teacups! We’re getting so close to Easter! But not everyone loves chocolate. If you’re stuck for what kind of Easter treat to buy for someone who isn’t a chocolate fan, GET THEM TEA! 

There are so many tea companies out there at the moment that have limited edition specific Easter blends on sale that you won’t want to miss out on! So to save you hours of searching I’m going to use today’s post to tell you all about them. 


T2

T2 currently have 2 Easter blends on sale Baxter’s Buns and Baxter’s Choc Buns.

Price – £16 each or 2 for £25 

Baxters Buns – Straight outta the oven, a fresh batch of Baxter’s best! This hottie tottie of a tea packs in buckets of cinnamon spiciness and all the fruity doughy goodness you would expect from a hot cross bun! (Www.t2tea.com) Because Easter isn’t Easter without hot cross buns is it? 

Enjoy on its own or with a dash of milk. Be sure to store it in a cool, dry place.

Ingredients – Cinnamon, barley malt, black tea, ginger, currants, chicory, orange peel, flavouring, cloves, cardamon, coriander, nutmeg – (CONTAINS GLUTEN)


Baxter’s Choc Buns –  This fresh batch of Baxter’s best features a sprinkle of cinnamon and a generous dusting of decadent raw cacao powder. The result? A tasty and toasty choc-chip combo that’ll send you straight to hot cross bun heaven (- http://www.t2tea.com

Perfect on its own or with a dash of hazelnut milk 

Ingredients –  Cinnamon, black tea, ginger, barley malt, currants, raw cacao powder, chicory, chocolate drops (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, emulsifier: E322 sunflower), natural flavouring, orange peel, cardamon, cloves, coriander, nutmeg (CONTAINS GLUTEN) 



You all know that I love T2 and their blends quite a bit. Even I think they have really outdone themselves with these Baxter’s Buns Blends. They really do capture the essence of Easter perfectly. 


BlueBird Tea Co 

Bluebird really have gone all out this Easter with some great Easter blends full of the nostalgic tastes and smells of Easter that we all know and love.   

Easter Egg Nests (Limited Edition Blend) 

Crispy, gooey, chocolatey, goodness! Whether you decorate with chocolate eggs or fluffy chicks we’re all fond of a home-made Easter Egg Crispy Nest (or two!). That’s why our limited edition Easter tea blend is packed with crispy toasted rice, chocolate pieces and marshmallows!    – (Www.bluebirdteaco.com)

Ingredients –  Sri Lankan black tea, cacao bean, cacao shells, Japanese sencha green tea, toasted rice, marshmallows (glucose-fructose, syrup, sugar, water, gelatine, maize, starch, flavouring, E162), chocolate chips (sugar, cacao, emulsifier soya lecithin), sunflower petals, flavour. ( VEGAN VERSION NOW AVAILABLE )

Brewing Guide : 1 heaped teaspoon per cup – 100° water – 4 mins – with or without milk.  

Ive heard nothing but amazing things about this blend, I’m going to be sure to order myself some of the vegan version to treat myself for Easter. Just reading the discription makes me feel really nostalgic. I don’t think and Easter has ever gone by when I haven’t made Easter Egg Nests. 

Price Varies between £5.50 and 16.50 dependent on the amount of tea you order.


Hot Cross Buns (Limited Edition Blend) 


At Easter time there are few things better than the aroma of currants, cinnamon and freshly baked buns wafting across the kitchen. When creating our Spring Collection we knew we had to pay homage to our favourite Easter treat, so here you have it – Hot Cross Bun tea! Don’t say we don’t treat you every now and again! – ( http://www.bluebirdteaco.com

Hot cross buns sure are a popular choice when it comes to Easter tea blends this year. I suppose it makes sense they are something you have to have at Easter no matter what. This is definitely on my list to try as well. I’d love to see how it compares to the T2 Hot cross bun blends. 

Ingredients : Rooibos, Sri Lankan black tea, cinnamon, hibiscus, apple pieces, rosehip, orange peel, Lapsang Souchong tea, vanilla pieces, cranberry pieces (cranberry, sugar, rice flour, vegetable oil), flavour.

Brewing Guide : 1 heaped teaspoon per cup – 100° water – 4+ mins – With or without milk.

Again the prices varies between £5.50 and £16.50 depending on how much tea you want. 


Fortnum And Mason 


Easter Tea – Our aromatic Easter Tea celebrates the coming of spring. Refreshing and floral, this beautiful blend combines black low-grown Ceylon tea with colourful marigold and cornflower blossoms. Its elegant bouquet is inflected with the heady aromas of elderflower blossom and Fortnum’s signature orange blossom. Share with friends and family as an Easter treat. (Www.fortnumandmason.com

What I love about this blend is that fortnum and mason have not gone down the Easter treat route, but rather that they have perfectly recreated the coming of spring with fresh floral top notes and fruity undertones. This is such a refreshing blend that will immerse you into spring with one sip.

Price : £9.95

Ingredients : Black Tea (91%), Cornflower Petals, Marigold Petals, Flavourings 

Perfect on its own, this is a delicate and aromatic and elegant tea and shouldn’t be served with milk at all. 

Brewing Guide : 1 Teaspoon per person, 100 Degree water , infuse for 3-5 mins. 
So there we have it those are the Easter teas that I think you have to treat yourself and your love ones to this year .
HAPPY TEASTER!!
