Here at The Amazing Blog offices we love our tea time, and lately we've been enjoying some great blends from the artisan tea bar and shop Piacha. They sent us some samples in the form of a lovely envelop (as you can see on the picture) and our favourites were the Apple Green Tea and the Rooibos Choc Cinnamon.
The Apple Green Tea blends Chinese green tea, known for its high level of antioxidants, with sweet apple pieces and cinnamon. What we liked the most about it was its refreshing taste mixed with the slight spiciness of the cinnamon. We used 2 to 3 teaspoons per mug and waited a little bit before pouring boiling water directly onto the leaves, as Piacha suggests, since this can make the green tea go bitter.
Our next favourite, the Rooibos Choc Cinnamon, blends the caffeine-free rooibos with cocoa shells, cinnamon and cardamom. We love to have this one with milk as we feel it works perfectly with its 'chai' flavour and the sweet aftertaste of cocoa and vanilla.
