Review: PG Tips Smooth Red Bush and Vanilla

Posted on | October 17, 2014 | No Comments

Honestly, I always  think I should be drinking more rooibos tea.  After all, the tea is has a whole host of health benefits and it tastes good.  Many hopitals, particularly Childrens Hospitals give it to their patients to reduce nausea.  But, since I really prefer strong black teas, I never get around to drinking more rooibos.  With the introduction of PG Tips Smooth Red Bush & Vanilla Tea I may be drinking more rooibos. Red Bush is synonymous with rooibos.

This tea is part of the new fruit and herbal tea range introduced by PG Tips.   To make this tea, PG Tips uses authentic South African grown rooibos.  But, it is the addition of the vanilla that makes this tea interesting. With the addition of clean and crisp tasting vanilla, this tea is quite unique. This new PG Tips Tea wont replace my preference for strong black teas,  but it will help me drink more healthy herbal teas.

Posted on | September 26, 2014 | No Comments

Every now and then, we like to spotlight different tea drinkers.  In the picture below, you can see Mark S of Bandon, Oregon, an avid he drinker.  He prefers black teas, having tried teas from Darvilles of Windsor, Marks & Spencer, all Punjana Teas and Welsh Brew.  But, perhaps his favorite brand is SD Bell Tea (which is no longer available in the US).

Mark has varied interests.  A farmer and rancher, among other things, you can see some of the cattle Mark raises. These cattle are a cross between Devon and Angus.  Plus, he ships compost around the country and grows apples, also shipping these around the country.  In the back of the picture, you can see the Siskiyou Mountains, a range along the Northwestern California and Southwestern Oregon coast.
