Time For Tea

Time For Tea
For a yummy twist on tea, you must try Tea4Life's Chocolatea. It's a pure green tea (so full of health benefits) combines with raw organic cacao nibs. Cacao itself is full of health boosting properties- including serotonin and magnesium- for stress relief and strong teeth and bones. Chocolatea is light and refreshing like tea; but also has a creamy texture. It's also a fantastic low-calorie way to satisfy your sweet cravings, as raw cacao is the basis for chocolate! It costs £5.95 for 50g of loose tea; and is available from www.tea4life.co.uk.

Whittard of Chelsea has long been known as a tea-lover's high street favourite. It's range of attractive teapots, cups and accessories take pride of place in many kitchens across the country. We love their British themed mugs; perfect for the British tradition of 'taking tea', and the upcoming royal wedding. They cost £8-£10 each from , and are almost too good to use! www.whittard.co.uk.

Marks and Spencer (www.marksandspencer.com), with the help of property expert Kirstie Allsopp, have created a delightful tea range. Their floral cake stand (£19.50) is beautiful.

Glasgow company Love Me Again (www.lovemeagain.com) collects, restores and sells vintage teacups and saucers. Don't worry about finding a set. It's lovely to mix and match with vintage pieces.

Heavenly Cakes' range of cakes (which come in a Gluten-free option too that's just as yummy) are to die for. Order them online and have them delivered to your door just as fresh as if they have just come out the oven! The ingredients are all top quality; including creamy Belgian chocolate. Prices start at £7.50 for 6 portions at www.heavenlycakes.co.uk. Choose from a variety of delicious shortbreads, chocolate cakes and flapjacks.

www.macaronique.com will deliver delicious and pretty French macaroons direct to your door in a temperature controlled box. A box of 12 costs £22, and is perfect for a special treat.

John Lewis has an excellent range of kitchen linens. Their I'm Off To London To Have Tea With The Queen tea towel (£6.95) is very cute, as is their Union Jack tea cosy (£8). These items are available from www.johnlewis.com.
