Crème Brûlée -Suki Tea
Did you know that most teabags contain plastic? And that over 100 million teabags are thrown away every single day in the UK?! Not to mention that when we pour boiling water onto the bags they release microplastics into our cuppa which we then drink?! If that hasn't convinced you its time to ditch the teabags I don't know what will!
We are so proud to be stockists of Suki Tea - they produce excellent quality whole leaf teas, both loose and in plastic free teabags. Not only that but they are ethically sourced, buying Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or Organic wherever possible.

Rooibos or 'Redbush' Tea is grown in the western cape of South Africa and although many attempts have been tried to cultivate it elsewhere they have all failed. .
