We are a nation of tea drinkers and let’s be honest most of us probably wouldn’t say no to a luxury hot chocolate on a cold day.
We drink coffee or black teas to give us our morning caffeine boost, green tea and herbal teas for health, afternoon tea, and milky drinking chocolate or chai tea to relax before bed. At Danuworld, you can rest assured you are getting an ethical, socially responsible and tasty premium cuppa whatever the occasion. Fair trade tea is vital for the smallholder's farmers and tea producers. It’s not just about ensuring a Fairtrade minimum price, the Fairtrade foundation ensures that the fairtrade standards are met, ensuring working conditions and fair and sustainable. Also, the fairtrade premium goes towards vital community projects in the poorer communities of the world, investing in schooling, infrastructure or even health. The tea farmers and workers decide what to spend the premium on locally
Tea - Loose leaf tea and tea bags
If ethical tea is more you, then we have tea bags and loose leaf tea which tastes good, and does good! Green tea, earl grey, masala chai, rooibos, black teas and herbal infusions, from small artisan UK producers to large-scale Fairtrade certified corporations, there’s enough tea here to open a tea shop.
Tea has some amazing health benefits. Matcha Green Tea is believed to boost your metabolism by up to 40% thus promoting weight loss, and green tea extracts contain high levels of antioxidants. Matcha drinkers consume 137 times more catechins than ordinary green tea drinkers. We love Pure Chimp, a loose tea in powder form, you don’t even need a pot. Just add hot water.
Alternatively, you could try Tea Huggers Skinny Fit with a base of Chinese oolong tea. Tea Huggers herbal teas include Flu Fighter and a Good Night infusion.
Want to take in the Danish Hygge way of life, then Hoogly tea is just for you. From traditional blends such as Earl Grey, (a delicate blend of tea leaves from Sri Lanka, infused with natural bergamot oil and combined with zesty lemon peel and sweet-scented orange blossom) to eco-friendly ethical herbal infusions with a twist of fun, like Spiced Orange or Marzipan. The loose leaf tea bags are fully biodegradable and certified organic, so again no tea infuser required.
Brew tea company, Williamson and Whittard of Chelsea all cater for those wanting a more traditional cup of tea.
Williamson have some beautiful tea tins which make lovely gifts, perfect for your afternoon tea table, and all their teas are rainforest alliance certified, fair trade and sustainably farmed. Whittard Breakfast tea is perfect for everyday tea drinking. An organic tea that’s good with or without milk. And Brew Tea Co’s Moroccan Mint (which comes in loose leaf or bags) is a refreshing herbal tea that makes a great iced tea in summer.
Drinking tea is easy but with so many types of tea, tea brewing can be a bit of an art form. Different varieties require different water temperatures and infusion times. And you might need a strainer or an infuser.
