Going Natural

Twinings-Tea-Poppy-Loves-9

This year after Christmas, I concluded that I must be about 55% cheese, 45% mince pie. Which is not a great state of affairs and goes some way to explain my increased derriere.

So as soon as midnight struck on the first day of January, I switched gear and made a promise to myself to eat better… and this meant less sugar, less cheese (sad face) and to embrace as much natural food and drink as possible.

And that is exactly what I have done.

Tea plays a big part in my life, and for the whole of last week I made the switch, from my usual black caffeinated tea, to a new Twinings fruit and herbal infusion tea…. and it was EASY.

Twinings sent me a few different flavours to try

This was such a small change to make, but this weeny tweak to my daily routine has made a real difference… and they are all delicious. I savour the natural taste and enjoy *that* smug feeling, knowing I’m doing something really good for my body.

I don’t know about you, but unless I visit a natural health food shop, I find it can be really tricky to buy products that are 100% natural. And I ma actually pretty skeptical when a product claims to be entirely natural too, as it’s often not true. BUT I can say with total confidence (I have read all the ingredients myself) that these teas are definitely 100% natural, they are caffeine-free and contain less than 4 calories a cup. Crackajack.

I have always struggled to drink enough water during the day, so this has been a great boost in that department – my water intake is so much closer to where it should be, which is a big deal for me.

Fact! Twinings don’t buy ready-made blends. They have a team of 9 Master Blenders (with magic wands and everything) who blend every single flavour of Twinings tea – they use their knowledge to pair the all-natural ingredients together and taste the teas every step of the way to ensure the best quality infusions. WHAT A GREAT JOB!

I’ve always marvelled at how careful we all are at putting fuel into our cars, but we don’t think twice about putting rubbish into our own engines – the most important engine of all!

These new natural teas from Twinings are my new Must Have – forget that tote bag or pair of boots. Instead, put the kettle on and get involved in this season’s biggest trend; Go natural.

Bring flowers into your home, get outside for a walk, splash in the puddles, stretch and breathe in deep – we’ve only got one body, and I for one and determined to treat it as kindly as possible.

  1. This makes me nostalgic for the time I visited the tiny little Twinings shop on the Strand. LOVE Twinings, but we can’t get all of the fruity flavors like that in the States. Boo.

  2. This narrow, narrow shop is a treat to explore, just to experience its unique size, layout and decor–but then you can also buy teas that you may not find elsewhere. I’d been walking by it for years without seeing it, because the doorway is small and recessed
