JADU TEA

Monday, 25 April 2016

My love of tea is no secret.... 

If you follow me on my social media you'll know that I love tea and coffee and can often be found in a tea shop or coffee shop with Baby Lewis and the hubbie in the afternoon most days.




JADU TEA discovered me online through me sharing my love of tea on Instagram and they kindly sent my way a selection of tea to try...


The first blend of tea that I tried was Apple Lemon Ginger Green Tea. The tea came in this large bag and was loose so I used my nifty little tea strainer to brew the tea.




When I first opened this bag of Jadu Apple Ginger Lemon Green Tea the smell of ginger really hit me, it smelt really uplifting. 


The Jadu Apple Ginger Lemon Green Tea is lovely as a black tea alternative for the daytime. However I have to say that this tea isn't my favourite tea of the samples sent my way. It is though an uplifting, zingy tea blend that's perfect for the day and perfect throughout the year as it's refreshing enough for the Summer yet slightly warming with the ginger for the Winter time! 

The second tea that I tried was another loose tea and another green tea. This time it was Jadu Vanilla Rose Green Tea.


This is such a pretty floral tea...

As soon as I opened the bag I smelt a beautiful light rose scent with a touch of vanilla. It really smelt divine.

















I'm not normally a Green Tea drinker... However this tea has converted me. I was unsure what to expect from this tea what with it being so floral. I was pleasantly surprised though with how light the rose and vanilla flavours were and how refreshing this tea actually was. I think this tea is the perfect tea to accompany a girlie tea and cake afternoon in the garden over the summer and I think that this tea would also be really nice as an ice tea and I intend to try it as an ice tea very soon. 



Jadu Tea don't just do leaf tea's they also do beautiful tea pyramids... also known as tea bags. 

The China Green Tea was again a lovely tasting tea. Some green tea's can taste quite bitter and I think my experience with green tea up until now has been very off putting simply because the tea that I've tasted has been so bitter in taste. This green tea from Jadu is anything but bitter and is actually enjoyable to drink. Green tea is full of the good stuff and after tasting Jadu's green tea I feel that maybe just maybe green tea might sneek it's way into my daily cuppa routine.

Lastly but definitely not least was Mademoiselle Grey. Jadu tea's earl grey blend. (The hubbie's favourite blend of tea). This is by far my favourite tea out of all the blends that were sent my way to taste. I'm a black tea fan anyway, however this is by far the very best Earl Grey blend of tea that I have ever had the pleasure of tasting so far. Both the hubbie and I were totally taken back by the beautiful flavour of this blend. This tea has such a delicate flavour to it and it tastes so mild and is really enjoyable to drink. I've been drinking this tea in the evening, it's been my evening treat and it just perfect!

So what do I think to Jadu Tea...

I think Jadu Tea's got it just right. Every blend of tea that I tried was really palatable and the blends were just right. The flavours are really light and therefore when drinking this tea you get to enjoy the true taste of the tea as well as getting the added bonus of the accompanying flavours. The packaging is also really sleek and this make it look classy and lovely as a gift. 
The tea is on the pricer side of things with 100g of loose tea costing around the £21.50 mark however it is definiately worth it as a treat as the tea tastes so fab and a little goes a long way so a 100g of tea will last you a while
Overall I'm super impressed with Jadu tea and I'll be purchasing lots of tea in the future.

Sparkly Sunday My Baby Stuff Wishlist!

Sunday, 17 April 2016

Hi there lovelies,

Welcome along to Sparkly Sunday. Today's a little different as I thought I would share some super fabulous Baby items with you. 
This I guess is my Baby wishlist! 


1.  Cosatto Zoomi Car Seat

If you've watched our vlogs you'll know already that I'm a HUGE Cosatto fan. We've already got a Cosatto highchair for Lewis and his pram is a Cosatto Giggle Travel System. I love surrounding Lewis with colour as I think colour really has an effect on your mood and I think having your little one surrounded by colour is a positive thing. Anyhow's enough about that, I  just adore this Cosatto Zoomi Car seat it's bright and it's got a 5 point safety harness. Also I've found a fab deal on Direct2Mum it's £116.95 right now (17th April 2016) plus it's free delivery! Bargain! 

2.Cheeky Rascals Love to Inventa 1.0 Tog Sleeping Bag

I love using sleeping bags. Lewis sleeps really well in them and has done since about 6 months old. They can be a little pricey however I have found that they wash really well. I totally love this lovely owl design. This is a Cheeky Rascals Sleeping Bag and it's £34.99.
3. Koo-di Bath Toy Caddie - Polka
(Photo thanks to Direct2Mum)
If you're a mum or dad reading this you'll probably be like us and have loads of bath toys scattered around the bathroom hiding in amongst the shower gel and shampoo. 
However how cool is this? It's £17.00.
4. Close Parent Swim Nappy - Robo
(Photo thanks to Direct2Mum)
I'm so in love with this quirky fabulous swim nappy design and after reading about the design I think we need this in our lives for when Lewis starts swimming soon. Love it! This is £8.50
5. Beurer Pacifier Thermometer
(Photo thanks to Direct2Mum)


If you watch our vlogs and follow social media you'll know that Lewis has been poorly recently with a really bad ear infection and we had a nightmare with his temperature going up really high. Having this Beurer Pacifier Themometer would have been really helpful. It's £10.99
