Afternoon Tea at Home With Tea People

Hello my lovelies and a very warm welcome today's blog feature in collaboration with the wonderful company Tea People. If like me you are a true tea lover, then let me tell you, this blog post is for you! There isn't a day when my morning doesn't consist of at least one cup of tea. My usual go-to is an Earl Grey, as I love the lightly floral aromatic nature of it and how delicately balanced it is. From the ritual that is the whole tea making process to that splendid first sip, and how it really awakens your senses, tea really is a lifestyle to me, and I couldn't go without it!

A Bit About Tea People
Tea People are unlike any other tea brand, as they are a social enterprise tea company and half of the profits from Tea People go to Education Projects in tea-growing regions. That means that for every cup of Tea People tea that you drink, you're helping to dramatically improve the lives of those most in need. Tea People is also founded by Neeraj and Vishaka, a husband and wife duo who are from the beautiful tea growing region of Darjeeling in India. They originally wanted to help repair a school that was in their home area. This first particular school was located amongst the tea gardens so served the children of the tea garden workers as well as other impoverished villagers in the area. Once they had raised the required funds to pay for the necessary school repairs, they realised that the problem reached further than just this once school and that fundraising alone wasn't a very sustainable way to provide the scale of help they wanted to give. Tea People was then born from the idea (which came during a 'pyjama party'!) that great tea can unite us all and help change the lives of poor children and empower communitiees.

They truly are a company with a heart and their work to help provide education to improve the lives of underprivillidged communities is a testament to this. They are follow high standards of ethics in all of their transactions and they are even officially certified as a Social Enterprise recognised by Social Enterprise UK. How incredible. I feel like the world needs more positive companies like Tea People and they are honestly a fantastic example of a brand you should support to help vitally important initiatives. 

Tea People's Commitment To The Environment
Tea People's initiative also reaches into environmental issues and their teabags are plastic-free and made from bio-degradable materials. So not only are you getting to enjoy incredible, top quality, artisan tea, you're also safe in the knowledge that you are supporting green initiatives that benefit the planet. 

Additionally, Tea People also re-use packaging which from their suppliers to whatever extent possible. This is both an economically and environmentally sustainable option which highlights the thought and consideration which is an integral part to all of Tea People's actions.

Even if you know what you favourite teas typically are, I guarantee you will be blown away by the artisan selection with Tea People have to offer and a few new favourites will work their way into your tea cupboard's repertoire if you go ahead and treat yourself to what I can honestly say is one of life's most special yet fundamental luxuries.

Afternoon Tea At Home
If like me you are a total lover of afternoon tea in every form, then you are going to LOVE this! I decided to throw an afternoon tea party at home and Tea People's incredible tea and herbal infusions took centre stage!  

I received lots of wonderful teas and infusions to try, including Earl Grey (a personal favourite), Desi Masala Chai which is a spicy Indian blend, Organic Camomile, Pineapple Green with Matcha, Divine Elixir and Tropical Burst. Needless to say I was spoilt for choice! As a tea lover, this selection is honestly what my dreams are made of!

Desi Masala Chai: This award winning tea is a robust, full-bodied blend of malty Assam tea infused with traditional Indian spices. A perfect morning tea that can be enjoyed on its own or with a splash of milk and sugar. This delectable black tea contains aromatic cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and bay leaves. Shop the Desi Masala Chai tea by Tea People here.

Earl Grey: A true favourite for me. The Tea People Earl Grey is that bit more special as it is enhanced with Orange Blossoms. The finest black teas are blended and infused with high grade Bergamot and orange blossoms for enhanced 'citrusy' flavour. 

Organic Camomile: One for those who need a monent bor two of tranquility. I can't recommend some top quality camomile highly enough if you frequently find yourself 'frazzled' by all that life can throw at you. This caffine free herbal tea is carefully made with whole camomile flowers. With wonderful apple-like notes and proven to be an efficient antioxidant, this caffine-free tea is an idea drink to curl up in bed with. Shop the Tea People Organic Camomile tea here.

Pineapple Green with Matcha: This is literally an amazing tea. It is a blend of green tea blended with tropical pineapple. Utterly divine! Deliciously light and fruity green tea with pineapple and the goodness of matcha sprinkled all over, it's time to indulge your nice and naughty at the same time! You can shop the Pineapple Green with Matcha by Tea People here.

Divine Elixir: Something totally original for you here. A fruity blend of green and white teas, amazingly enhanced with candied fruits including pineapple, mango, orange peel, candied papaya, strawberry, red currants, sour cherry and so many varieties of different green tea for the most complexly delicate flavour combination. Definately one to try if you love variety like me. You can shop the Divine Elixir by Tea People here.

Tropical Burst: Wow, this tea smells AMAZING! With mangoes and Acai berries aplenty, if you love a tropical fruity infusion, this is the one for you! It is also caffeine free. This tea yields a crimson liquor with subtle sweetness derived from the fruits. The main flavours that stand out are those of mango, with hints of Acai berries. You can shop the Tea People Tropical Burst tea here.

Relaxing with tea and cake = a dream come true!
