Happy #NationalTeaDay!!

Did you know its national tea day today?

Yep, there’s a whole day dedicated to Britain’s national drink; and so there should be!

Tea solves world problems, brings people together and gets people through their daily life. Just ask my parents, they have at least 8 cups daily.

Stressful day?..Grab a brew

Had some bad news?.. I’ll put the kettle on

Busy at work? ..Make a Rosie Lee

Losing weight? ..Have a detox remedy

Feeling cold?..Warm up with a Cuppa

Fancy Lunch? ..How about an afternoon tea?

I’m a lover of all things tea I have to say, and I’m definitely a Twining’s girl! Here are my top teas leading up to my all time fav.

cranbNo 4. Cranberry Green Tea

I like green tea for detoxing but I find that it has a bit of a strange taste. The cranberry version adds a bit of a twang making it nicer to drink.

peachiceNo. 3 Peach Ice Tea

Granted I only ever seem to have come across this while travelling in Asia but I was addicted. Give me a glass filled with Ice and a Lipton in the sun and I’m all yours!

earlgreyNo. 2 Earl Grey Tea

This is ones perfect for those winter nights. Earl Grey is just like English Breakfast tea with a slightly more acquired taste. My special brew is a great representation of myself..strong, milky and sweet haha.

lemontea   No.1 Lemon & Ginger tea with a spoonful of honey

My no. 1 has to be this lovely concoction!

I have this every morning to kick start my metabolism for the day. This tea has lots of health benefits including reducing cholesterol thanks to the ginger and lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C.

What’s your favourite teas?

Happy Chinese New Year 2016!

Yay it’s the year of the monkey, that’s me!

“Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month.
This year it’s the Year of the Monkey, the ninth animal in the cycle. The next Year of the Monkey will be in 2028.”

“The personality of the Monkey:

People born in the Year of the Monkey are characterised as lively, quick-witted, curious, innovative and mischievous, but it is also believed to be one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar.

The general image of people in this zodiac sign is of always being smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth.

In addition, their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others.

Strengths: sociable, innovative, enthusiastic, self-assured

Weaknesses: suspicious, cunning, selfish, arrogant, jealous”

.. Taken from thetelegraph.co.uk

This is all pretty spot on! It’s a shame I’m apparently unlucky though ha.

We will be celebrating the New Year at a few beach parties tonight in Sihoukanville.

Hope you all have a good’un
