Hello folks,

This is the first of a series of reviews based on Teapigs products.  I recently attended a fun Masterclass, hosted by Whole Food Markets in Kensington, lead by co-creator of the brand Louise Cheadle.

Today, I’m reviewing the Matcha green tea drink with elderflower.

The drink, when chilled is so refreshing and tasty. I happen to like elderflower a lot, but adding it to the Matcha gave it a lovely kick of flavour and refreshment.  I would be happy to drink this all day, every day.

Teapigs Matcha Green Tea Drink, with Elderflower – Champagne Twist

At 330ml the carton is just right for lunch boxes and could be a useful, healthier alternative midday pick-me-up to the standard black tea or coffee.  At £1.89 per carton, the price is comparable to coffee-shop beverages, if not cheaper.

In this format, the drink is also a good introduction to people new to green teas. Consisting of spring water, grape and elderflower extracts, concentrated lemon juice, matcha green tea and citric acid, the drink is only 21 Kcal per 100ml.

I can’t fault this, (believe me I tried!) and am looking forward to trying out the other products in the range.

Rating 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: The product reviewed was part of a goodie bag as part of a Masterclass. Reviewer paid for the Masterclass ticket.

Hello,

As it’s summer in the city … ahem … I thought it was about time to get the cocktail shaker out.  Or at least a big jug to make a refreshing summer time drink.  Here’s a little recent invention of mine, the Elderflower and Pineapple Refresher. Let me know if you try it and what you think of it.

Method:

To remind us that it is actually summer, here’s one of my videos from last year.  Hopefully, it will kickstart the heat wave.
