Paul Steveninck and Anuschka Revijn are real tea lovers themselves and as passionate lovers and their extensive knowledge of tea, they decided to share this passion and knowledge. They offer a wide variety of high quality teas and I was allowed to try some of them. Paul made me a nice cup of tea and in the meantime he did tell me all about his passion and the brand.
Everything starts with a first experience. Every pyramid-shaped tea bag is packed individually in an air and light-proof bag to assure there is no loss of taste and smell. In this way you can store it up to 3 years. The tea bags are 100% biodegradable which is something I do pay attention to.
I was allowed to try three different blends: Sencha Current, Pur Erh and Indian Chai. I’m a huge Chai fan, as you might already know this. Fun fact: chai means tea. 🙂 This delicious spicy drink is originally from India. Blend Tea’s mix contains black tea, clove, pieces of ginger, coriander seeds and cinnamon. I love to drink this Indian Chai with some warm milk and I add some extra cinnamon. This is the perfect way to end my day. If you haven’t tried Chai, you should definitely taste this one. It’s my favourite one!
This one is a mix of Japanes Sencha green tea, Formosa semi-fermented oolong tea and red berries, combined with the natural sweetness of vanilla. Experience it yourself and discover the great benefits. This tea can calm, soothe and makes me feel relaxed. In today’s often hectic world it’s really important to take care of yourself and to take some me-time once in a while. The perfect excuse to make a nice cup of tea and sit down for a minute with a good book or a nice magazine! The scent of Sencha Current is really pleasant!
Pu-erh Tea has long been valued in Chinese herbalism for its vast benefits. It aids digestion and fat break down, and contains a high level of Vitamin C. This tea contains coconut and orange blossom. It has such a great scent (you can really smell the coconut). This is one my latest discoveries and I must say that I really like it. The taste is subtle which I like and the scent is really pleasant.
I’m going to make some tea right now. Do you need more information? Visit Blend Tea’s website and discover the wonderful world of tea!
