If you haven’t noticed we are completely crazy bonkers about tea. Our national drink has many perks from easing the pain of getting out of bed each morning to comforting us during the darker months and helping us through our every working day. It’s a drink we can enjoy guilt free, knowing that it is actually good for you unlike coffee, which leaves us feeling wired. There’s a brew for every occasion and what’s more these different variations of tea come with different health benefits. For example green tea is rich in antioxidants and nutrients, which have beneficial effects on the body such as fat loss, improved brain function and lowering the risk of cancer. Another reason why we love tea so much is that it helps us to feel refreshed and is packed with sweet scented notes, which smell divine. We love tea so much that our whole brand is inspired by tea.
Aesthetically we have been inspired by the vibrant Taiwanese drink, hence our name Bubble T. The colourful drink, which rapidly became popular craze over the last few years grabbed our attention at an instant when we were travelling around Asia and straight away we fell in love with its playful and quirky aesthetics, inspiring our identity as a brand.
Of course we didn’t want our brand to be all about the packaging and aesthetics. We wanted to create a range that would also leave you feeling fantastic and that is why our ingredients have been inspired by a wide range of teas with a wide range of health benefits. Our products are guaranteed to leave your skin feeling replenished, cleansed and hydrated as well as providing a long lasting fresh smell.
We are even obsessed with tea culture across the globe. This has increased our awareness of various tea blends and infusions, which you can drink depending on your mood. Tea has come long way over the years with tea bags first being launched by Tetley in 1953. Since then many exciting brands have emerged offering variety of fun, quirky and delicious teas with various benefits. Here are some of our favourites, which we thought we would share with you.
We adore Charbrew as a brand. Not only does it bring you healthy treats with eccentric packaging but as a brand it also places a lot of emphasis on caring for our planet and that is why their ingredients only come from sustainable sources and all their tea bags are biodegradable. They also do a selection of refreshing ice teas which we love, especially during this springtime weather.
For the most diverse range and innovative range of teas, look no further than T2. From traditional flavours to delightful combinations you couldn’t even think of such as caramel brownie tea and banana bake tea, T2 never fails to surprise our senses, offering us an experience which is truly unique and immersive.
Social media has been going crazy for Bootea and so have we. It’s the ultimate tea that offers a feel good factor placing all its emphasis on promoting a healthy, balanced and active lifestyle. All their ingredients are pure and natural and contain no preservatives. It promises to take you on a ‘Teatox’ journey removing unwanted toxins from your body and giving you a motivational boost to kick start your healthy journey.
Of course we love Bubbleology, the bright and colourful Bubble Tea brand. If you haven’t tried Bubble Tea we highly recommend you try it here first. Expect a choice of refreshing flavoured teas and milk teas to choose from. You can have them served ice cold or piping hot and they contain tapioca balls in them. These are often referred to as pearls and contain sweet potato, cassava root and brown sugar. They are chewy like gummy bears and are the size of a marble.
Similarly to Bootea, SkinnyMint offers to give us a lifestyle, which is healthy, natural and sustainable using tea. Their selection of teas is not as varied as some of the other brands out there however they offer a morning cleanse tea and a night time cleanse tea which will not only have you looking and feeling healthier but will also help you gear your mind up for a positive outlook on life. Their tea ingredients include fresh ingredients such as yerba mate, which works to boost your metabolism as well as lemongrass, which can help you to relax and unwind.
Cute, quirky and full of character, Teapigs not only have unique packaging but they also offers a wide selection of teas of only the highest quality. They offer teas to suit every mood and even have a moodometer on their website so that you can shop teas according to this. If your feeling adventurous opt for liquorice and mint or for grumpy moods, cheer yourself up with some popcorn tea. You can also purchase from them a cute selection of teaware (mugs, infusers, teapots and other quirky accessories).
We were so happy to discover teapigs and would love for you to discover them to which is why we have teamed up with them on Instagram to offer you a chance to win a selection of teas as well as some Bubble T goodies from us. Keep your eyes peeled for the competition which will be held to celebrate National Tea Day on the 21st April.
