I do love a cup of tea, in fact I’ve been known to be called a tea monster by some. Since being pregnant I”ve been drinking less of the good stuff and an awful lot more of the decaf variety. Caffeine, along with blue cheese, pate and rare steak are all off my list for the next few months.
Teastorks sent me a box of their finest tea to try. The idea is that you choose a box from their list – some are rather different (movie night tea anyone?) and some are less so, like the box I chose called The Perfect Day. It reminded me of seeing Lou Reed once as a 19 year old which is no bad thing. Anyway, I ordered my box (£5.45 by the way – you can also order subscriptions but this was a one off) and it arrived a couple of days later. The first thing that struck me was how lovely the packaging is. In each box you receive 15 tea bags, 5 lots of each three varieties.
The teabags themselves were made from that lovely see through cloth. The type of tea bags you get in posh hotels and restaurants. The tea itself was delicious. I really liked the Earl Grey, it was stronger in flavour than what I’m used to. I loved the camomile – so different to any grassy camomile I have tried before. It was positively creamy in the mouth. My least fave was the alarm clock. It was still nice but the others were so good I couldn’t help but wish for them instead.
I liked: The feeling that tea is meant to be special. The box, the bags, the branding – they all felt luxurious. I enjoyed the choosing, ordering process and indeed receiving the box of goodies. The tea itself is clearly premium and makes me realise what rubbish I usually drink. I also liked that they stipulate how much caffeine is in each bag, I know most people won’t care but pregnant ladies do.
I did not like: The price is an issue for me if I’m honest. I think perhaps I need to drink less rubbish tea and focus on quality. You most definitely get what you pay for. Then again this does work out at 36p per cup (excluding postage) so really, there’s little to moan about.

Got a teastorks sample pack for Christmas. Loved it. Putting lots of teastorks tea as my #1 most wanted present for my birthday. Pro tip: Use a teapot and then you can get up to 3 cups of tea out of each teabag. More for some of the blends :)
Tea time is the best meal of the day – made even better with TeaStorks Earl Grey!
Love Teastorks :)
