Spice Way Fruit Infusions

I discovered Spice Ways tea company when I went to the Berkeley Hotel for afternoon tea, where I tried their ‘Gorgeous Ginger’ fruit infusion. I didn’t think I’d like it much as I’m somewhat of a tea purist, but completely hooked, I was happy to receive ‘Posh Pomelo’ a mix of pomelo, melon, pineapple, papaya and ‘Amazing Apple’ comprising of tasty apples, cranberries, papaya, pineapple, cinnamon and other spices. The latter smells like Christmas – full of comfort and happiness. The best part, you can eat the little pieces of fruit. Tea and fruit? Yes please!

I’m trying to think more about the effects of my consumption on others and the environment, so the idea of buying from a local British brand appeals to me. I love that Spice Ways is owned by two friends who source all the ingredients themselves. There’s something pure about that, and I’m happy to support what they do.

    Yum! I have definitely gotten more into tea in the past few years (as I despise coffee, I suppose it was a natural maturity from hot chocolate haha) and I love trying different ones. I have 13 (yes I just got up to count) different teas and I love picking and choosing depending on my mood. My favs are David’s Tea from back home, though Australia has T2, which is similar. I also grabbed some Mariage Freres when I was in Paris. Did you try the tea Mum sent yet? It’s my fav from David’s!

      Love me a hot chocolate though tea has my heart. Once/twice a month I have a coffee but only they have soya/oat/rice milk available. Us girlies are seriously high maintenance! 13 different type of tea!? Holy smokes. This is my problem: I find something I like and that’s it, I’m set for life. Yes, I did but you’ll simply have to wait for the blog post to hear all about it 🙂

    This looks lovely but something tells me I would end up eating it straight from the container! Oopsie!

      I don’t want to lie to you so I won’t say that hasn’t already occurred in my kitchen…

    Oo what an interesting idea! The pictures look pretty delicious. I’ve never been one for fruit teas, but I might need to change my mind…

      Me neither, that’s what surprised me. I like green tea – no flavouring/additives/sugar etc. Plain and delicious. The fruit infusions were so flavoursome.
