      Fruit infusion tea bags

      Christmas presents can be good or bad and last month we were lucky enough to get a box of goodies including some boxes of tea. My husband prefers coffee so I decided to sample the apple and mango myself and have found another fruit infusion that I love.

      The box is cream in colour with a stripe each side showing apples and mangoes. The lid opens on the top off the box and reveals a neat stack of teabags joined in pairs.
      How odd as there are 25 teabags! I presume there was an odd bag on top but can't remember!

      Made by Whittard of Chelsea, this is described on their website as a summer fresh blend of apples, hibiscus, orange peel, rosehips, elderberries, cinnamon and mango pieces which together produce a light, subtle yet crisp fruit drink, which leaves a delicate warming after taste.

      The instructions on the box are different from the website- and me being me didn't read either before making my first few cups! I drop a bag into a mug, pour on boiling water, give a quick stir and immediately a pale red colour floods into the water. I leave for about 4-5 minutes and then drink it with the bag still in the mug for full flavour. This did surprise me as I expected apple and mango to be yellowy orange in colour! But I realise by the ingredients the elderberries and rosehips are giving colour as well as flavour to the infusion.

      They suggest on the box to infuse for 3 - 5 minutes in boiling water. It can be drunk cold after chilling in the refrigerator and can be sweetened with sugar or honey, but I find it is sweet enough. On the website they suggest it should be brewed lightly and top up with water if brewed in a tea bowl.

      My packet was a gift but can be bought online for £2.50 - simple to work out it costs 10p a cup.

      My thoughts - a really refreshing fruity drink, I do like apple drinks and mango fruit juice so this is really something that seemed made for me, but that isn't always the case with fruit infusions. This is one I will buy when I see it locally - there is a Whittard shop in a shopping centre at Livingston so will try there! I can see this being my usual night time drink instead of the cranberry, raspberry and elderflower I usually have from a rival supplier!

      Crisp, exotic and warming it says on the box. I agree and we all need a bit of exotic in our lives!
