Summer Tea Time

Posted: July 28, 2015

Some say drinking a hot drink in the summer time cools you down (quicker than a cool drink, but only in the right sort of environment…enter own scientific thoughts here), but a lot of people are unconvinced by this. I think there is some truth to it – it makes you ‘sweat it out’, once you’re over the sweating phase, you’re nice and cool. Although, I’m not sure I would want to drink a mug of hot tea in the blazing sun, but I definitely don’t mind a hot drink at the end of the day – summer or winter.

But, sometimes water doesn’t quite cut it, once you’re over the dehydration (remember to keep hydrated guys during those warm days – if you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already dehydrated), you just want something that tastes more than a water when you’re sat in the park.  So now I’ve gotten myself involved with ice teas, but better than buying it from a posh shop, I’ve started making these myself. Not only do I save money, but, I can choose whatever flavour I want!

I was recently given some quirky ice lolly makers as a gift, and I decided to make ice lolly teas – it’s simple and effective, not to mention less sugar than the stuff you buy. I used fruit teas for mine – I especially loved the cranberry because you can add bits of cranberry fruit pieces to it for a bit more excitement. And if you do have a sweet tooth, you could add honey, or mix it with some lemonade for a bit more zing.

And if you really want to treat yourself – dip it in chocolate…go on give it a try!

With love from Clipper!

We've gone a bit bonkers at Clipper HQ and decided we wanted to share the love with our lovely Clipper tea drinkers out there! We’ve created 3 Limited Edition tea caddies and each comes FREE with our special packs of Fairtrade Everyday Tea, Organic Everyday Tea and Pure Green tea (80 tea bags).

We’ve also made thousands of unbleached Clipper tea-towels and popped them into other packs of our Fairtrade Everyday Tea (80 bags). There are 4 different designs to look out for. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve only gone and put 100% more tea bags into boxes of our Pure Green Tea 26  Bags – yes we’ve squeezed 52 bags in there!

Read more about which gifts we’ll be bestowing by clicking on the images below.

All this Clipper loveliness will be in supermarkets from the end of October.
