I was kindly sent a few products to try recently- you guessed it, tea and granola. They were sent to me in exchange for a review.
The Earl Grey was gorgeous.
The steam made the picture go all fuzzy!
The tea contains organic black tea, bergamot oil and rose petals for a delicate flavour.
The Earl Grey is wonderful. I love Earl Grey anyway, but some of them don’t have a very strong bergamot flavour, but as soon as I opened the packet I could smell it. It reminded me of when you have Earl Grey chocolate- that lovely citrus smell. They have also added rose petals for some prettiness. I don’t let it brew for long as I don’t like that stewed taste, but the temple meant that it brewed in super quick time.
The Power blend contains Yerba Mate (I don’t know what that is- I googled it and apparently it is a member of the holly family that is high in caffeine), organic spearmint, cocoa shells and ginkgo. It was also rather delicious- it had a lovely minty flavour with a sort of peppery aftertaste (basically less sweet than normal mint tea) and I really enjoyed it. Because of the caffeine content I would keep this for the mornings generally. I love the tea temples/ teapees too- they really do mimic the flavour of loose leaf tea.
I was also sent some On The Go granola pouches from Lizi’s granola.
These are little individual pouches of granola (I was sent Original, Treacle Pecan and Belgian Chocolate flavours), with added powdered milk (lactose free), so the idea is that you can open the pouch, add water and then eat. The packets even some with a little spoon.
I don’t eat my breakfast on the go, but if you did I am sure they are a better option than buying something from a fast food place or whatever. I had mine in bowls and they looked rather small! But then granola usually does! I generally have granola with some fruit, and had this with a chopped apple. Like the other Lizi’s granola products, these were delicious. Although I am not vegan, I am not a huge fan of dairy products, and like to opt for mostly organic, so a dairy free option would be a good addition in my opinion.
When browsing on their website I came across some little single serving sachets (the Pink Apple and Cinnamon one is here) so that is an option if you don’t want the milk powder.
Where do you eat your breakfast? I always have mine at home-usually in the week I am really hungry when I wake up so I could not imagine waiting until I got to work (and then it is not as if I sit at a desk or anything).
