The nicest tea in the world!

This is probably a slight blogging cliché but I really do love tea! I first picked up this amazing Whittard tea over Christmas while on a trip to Cheshire Oaks and I'm so glad I decided to give it a try. I first spied it on the Whittard website quite some time ago after trying to discover some reasonably priced instant tea, it proved to be quite a feat as there doesn't seem to be much around. Anyway, there are so many flavours to choose from but I went for Strawberry & Vanilla, which just sounded so yummy, and I have to admit I was swayed by the gorgeous packaging - look how pretty it is! 

 Anyway, the packaging suggests to add 3 teaspoons to hot water, but I tend to use 2 as it's quite strong. The strawberry and vanilla flavours go perfectly together making it the ideal sweet treat. I have only had this tea hot so far, but during summer I'll definitely have a go of making ice tea with it. A tub of this instant tea costs £5.50 so it is slightly on the pricey side, and I wouldn't use this as an every-day tea, I like to keep it on days where I want a treat. 
While I was in the store, I also spotted their range of hot chocolate - so many delicious sounding flavours! I think it would be hard to choose just one! Again, these are fairly expensive, but they have hugely positive reviews on the website so I can imagine that they are pretty divine. I think these would make cute gifts for anyone that loves chocolate as much as I do, or perhaps in a food hamper for birthday's and Christmas. 

Have any of you tried one of these tea's or do you already have a particular favourite? Send me your suggestions!
