A Hope & Glory Afternoon Tea

As a Born and Bred Brit, I'm a sucker for a good and proper brew. If I've had a bad day, nothing lifts my mood more than refreshingly hot and clean cup of tea. So I was really chuffed when the lovely folk over at Hope & Glory Teas ( sent me a few samples of their delicious premium Organic, Fairtrade British teas. And what a treat they are too!

With four main collections (Maharajah, Maharani, Rajah and Rani) which range from your standard but essential English breakfast, through to a light and fresh Jasmine Green, a moreish Chai blend, and the rather beautiful Red Velvet tisane, there is something for everyone within this range. A personal favourite of mine was the Peppermint tea, part of the Maharani collection, which really packed a punch and invigorated the senses- the perfect Monday morning head cleanser! The Darjeeling tea would also be a top pick for me- it paired perfectly with my scones, clotted cream and raspberry jam, cutting through the richness of them, for a truly wonderful, proper British afternoon tea.

Beautifully delicate in flavour, these teas come in both loose leaf form and lovely little muslin tea bags too for convenience. And with such gorgeously patriotic pillar-box red packaging, what lovely gifts these teas would make too.

Thank you Hope & Glory for sharing your lovely teas with me!
