teapigs Review & (International) Giveaway [Closed]!


Hello everybody! Today I have a very exciting review and a GIVEAWAY WAHOO! The lovely ladies over at teapigs were kind enough to send me some tea to try (as I've been dying to try their liquorice and peppermint, as essiebutton is obsessed and let me tell you she does have good taste in tea). I also would like to take a moment to thank you all as I've reached over 2,000 followers on Bloglovin. I can't believe it. I can't even imagine 2,000 people let alone reading my blog. You are all so lovely and leave such nice comments, thank you for everything.

Onto the review, and then the giveaway!

Both of these teas are herbal teas so they don't contain any caffeine in them, and they are also made of basically loose leaf tea put into a cute little mesh "tea temple." The tea temples are also biodegradable (and don't contain any metal on them if you forget about your tea and need to microwave it…we all do it at least once), so that's always a big plus in my book.

"Real liquorice root with punchy peppermint leaves"

O. M. G. That is all I have to say. There are literally no words to describe my love for this tea, after receiving my package I've already started rationing my precious tea temples and trying to figure out the cheapest way to get more sent to me (shipping is a tad more expensive since I'm not in the UK). Honestly if you don't even like liquorice I think you'll like this tea. When you taste it, first you get a bit of the sweet flavor, then a refreshing peppermint, and then it leaves this sweet aftertaste in your mouth. It literally is exactly what they say on the package…a sweet treat. This kills my dessert cravings (and chocolate cravings during PMS ohhh boy) so you know it's got to be good. You don't need ANY sugar or sweeteners, it's just that good. teapigs, I am officially in love and addicted (curses now I have to buy more and pay the shipping in pounds! haha)

My dad despises peppermint things, basically minty foods or drinks in general, so I made him try this tea and he said "NO SUGAR? WOW. Even I would drink that. That's AMAZING!" And him saying that definitely is a BIG indicator of how delicious this tea is.


"Pure peppermint leaves that pack a punch!"

This tea is literally amazing. If you think you've tried peppermint tea before and they're all the same…well they aren't after tasting this tea. My family is a big fan of peppermint tea as it calms your stomach so we definitely have the house stocked to the brim with it and aren't newbies to the world of peppermint tea. This tea is so wonderful, mainly because it is made from pure peppermint leaves (in my opinion). If you like peppermint tea you need this in your life. No questions asked hands down. If you didn't know this before, peppermint tea calms upset stomachs (I think it's funny that it says "tummy tonic" on the package because I've been using peppermint tea for years that way!) but it doesn't contain any caffeine to keep you awake at night so you can drink it whenever your stomach hurts, or you really feel the urge for peppermint tea.

I let my brother be a tester (he ADORES mint tea. I would definitely call him a mint tea aficionado) and asked him what he thought and he said "It tastes like peppermint tea but somehow fresher, just more refreshing!" And he's also been rationing the tea bags! He told me it was the best peppermint tea he's tried to date, just when he thought he found his favorite brand here…in swoops teapigs


Here's a picture of the tea temple. Isn't it so cute??? And one of these babies easily makes two (large) cups of tea, so if you're worried about the price fear not! You get at least two uses from each tea temple (and if you're using a normal sized mug I'd say upwards of three or four). But as you can see in the picture they use high quality whole leaf tea (which is not what is usually found in a tea bag which is the reason people opt for loose leaf tea).

This is basically loose leaf tea put in a convenient little mesh tea temple (I can't get enough of saying tea temple) and is especially good for on the go (but you can also buy the tea loose from their website too! Just click the links I have above and you'll see).


They are also nice enough to include two free samples with your purchase which I think is great because sometimes you get to try flavors you never thought you would, and end up liking them a lot!

Also the website is so nice because they offer things where you can mix and match teas and create your perfect box, and they offer little sample sizes, loose leaf, big packs, and even gigantic sets if you find a flavor you're in love with (like me and liquorice and peppermint….I have a feeling I'm going to be browsing their site very soon). Just check out their site, I guarantee you'll find something you'll like. Plus they are the masters of creating teas that taste sweet but without any sugar hello diet friendly dessert!

Now what you've all been waiting for (and hopefully not just scrolling past all I've written just to enter the giveaway). This giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY. You will receive one box of each tea, each containing 15 tea temples (which definitely gives you more than 15 uses).

You can also sign up to the teapigs newsletter on their site where they feature their news and DISCOUNTS. I would also LOVE if you could like their Facebook page www.facebook.com/drinkrealtea and follow them on twitter @teapigs (please please please!)
