You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.

I wanted to tell you about these lovely herbal tea wands that I received from Bistro Tea.

An attractive alternative to a messy tea bag, these are designed to give you a delicious cup of tea with no fuss, no mess, no waste, no teaspoon and no burnt fingers!

instructions on how to make a cup of Bistrotea:
remove the TeaPod from its paper envelope, put it in a cup, add boiling water and gently stir the TeaPod for a few minutes ~ let it stand for a minute to further infuse, then use the TeaPod to stir in your sugar and milk (if required when making english breakfast tea) ~ it will now be fully infused, so remove the TeaPod and tap it once on the edge of the cup to discharge any excess water, then pop it in your waste recycling bin
each TeaPod is packed at point of origin using premium grade, organic tea leaves that are harvested, selected and processed in sri lanka (formerly ceylon) on fair trade estates
eleven different blends are available:
black teas
english breakfast, earl grey and apple cinnamon
red teas
jasmine lotus, strawberry and vanilla peach
green teasginger, lemon grass and mint
herbal infusions
fruit “goji” berry (caffeine free) and herbs n’ honey (caffeine free)
so there is a blend of tea to suit all tea lovers!

I was sent two of their herbal tea wands (Herbs and Honey and Fruit Berry) and I have to say they were delicious, easy to use and not as messy as using a regular tea bag.  I quite enjoyed them.


If you watch this video you can see them in action.  Simply Brilliant!

Beautifully designed and recyclable I think they're pretty special.

  1. These look so good. I think it's time for a cup of tea. Hope you're having a good evening.

  2. I know this post is probably not popular but every time I come to your blog it is about something you received and now tell us how wonderful it is. I loved your recipes but now not so much. Cheryl

  3. Thanks Carol.

    Cheryl, I think that you will find if you check my blog every morning I have posted a new recipe for the day. These other posts are interspersed between those recipe posts, and you can usually tell which are the recipe posts because the recipe post titles are the names of recipes! You are under no obligation to read the review posts. It makes me really sad that I post a recipe every single day of the year and you never comment on them, but all of a sudden you feel the need to comment on this post. :-( I do get sent free things to review and I like to share my findings with my readers. In most cases I do like what I have been sent and in some I don't. I am always very honest in giving my opinion. Sometimes I allow a sponsored post. As I am sure you can appreciate with prices sky rocketing it costs me a lot of money to keep this page going. The odd sponsored post helps me to keep doing what I love and that is sharing tasty recipes with you my readers.

  4. *Applause* Hear hear, Marie!! You're one of the hardest working bloggers I know, and your recipes ROCK! Now, I'm not a huge tea-drinker, but those little tea-steeper-bag-thingees look like total genius. That design needs to catch on!!
