Asda Tea Lights
Advantages: A bargain price for 100 candles, good burn time
Tealight are always something that I have around the house as I use them for my Yankee oil burner a lot. I also like to occasionally just light a few to cheer the place up when the weather is cold and dark outside.
I have no particular brand that I always but when it comes to tealights but the ones at Asda are particularly good value and as I usually shop at Tesco I always make sure to stock up on a couple of bags when I get the chance to visit Asda.
For only £2 you get a big bag with 100 unscented tealights in it. This is really good value especially as they are actually decent to use as well. The tealights themselves are plain white and come in thin metal holders and have no real decorating value so are ideal for use with oil burners.
I have found that the quality of tealights can vary greatly. You would think a candle is a candle at the end of the day but some of them are absolutely rubbish and have barely warmed a tart up before they have burnt down to nothing.
There tealights are made from wax and have a nice length of wick on them so they aren't difficult to get lit. Once they are lit I can be guaranteed that they will stay that way for a good 2 and a half to three hours which is perfect for when I am burning a tart.
I don't know if it is my imagination or not but they also seem to give off a decent heat compared to most other cheap ones which seem to struggle to even melt my tarts. These ones have no problems with melting the wax and releasing the fragrance of the tart.
These tealights are loads better than most other cheap ones and to get 100 in a bag for only a pound is a bargain. They are excellent quality and although they don't look all that fancy are ideal for use with oil burners or even just for burning when colour and fragrance aren't a priority.
Summary: A bargain price for 100 tealights
