Food and drink: Spill the Tea

If you’ve got a tea lover on your Easter Bunny list, this is perfect.

Founded by tea buff Krisi Smith in 2013, Bird & Blend Tea Co. is known for both fine quality and flight-of-fancy flavours - step into the spotlight Cream Egg, billed as “a drinkable version of the nation’s favourite Easter treat”.

Blending Sri Lankan black tea with cocoa nibs, jasmine blossom and all-natural flavourings, it’s sugar-free yet delivers a hit of sweetness.

While Cream Egg is new this year, Hot Cross Bun has long been a fan favourite.

As you pour water onto the artful mix of Rooibos, Sri Lankan black tea, cinnamon, hibiscus, apple pieces, rosehip, orange peel, vanilla and cranberry pieces, your nose tells you why: it smells just like a hot cross bun, oven-warm and waiting to be slathered in butter. And it tastes even more delicious than it smells.

* Available loose leaf and in bags, Cream Egg is £5.55 for 50g, while Hot Cross Bun is £5.90 for 50g. See birdandblendtea.com
