Nuffnang Product Talk : Oriental Teahouse

Today, I arrived home to receive a package from Nuffnang Australia! I absolutely LOVE snail mails and getting any mail in my postbox is always a joy. Cards and presents are welcome but definitely NOT credit card bills or bank statements informing me the low cash balance.

Quickly made my way to the kitchen and with a knife (since I can't find where Mr. C hid the scissors), ripped open the package revealing Oriental Teahouse's Strawberry & Cream tea!!

 
 

Because I didn't get the previous Nuffnang Product Talk on Golden Circle Healthy Life Probiotic Drink, I figured that I may missed out on this Tea treat, too! So, imagine my excitement when it hit me - obviously the part when I ripped open the postal packaging - that I got this Product Talk opportunity!

I am a tea fan. Yeah sure, when I go out, I drink mocha instead of any tea drinks. Frankly, I don't think it's worth it to pay so much more for a teabag of tea that I can easily conjure up at home myself. 

I drink Twinning's English Breakfast or Lipton's Black tea with milk on a daily basis. Of course, at home. Most days, I can easily drink up to 2 till 4 cups which Mr. C would love to see me cut down to a cup or none, if that's even possible!

It's lovely to have a warm drink to warm my hands and self and that's why, today's package came in handy. What better way to calm my growling hungry tummy and shoo the cold from my fingers than with a cup of hot tea, the Strawberry & Cream tea from Oriental Teahouse!

Love the fragrance. The tea is aptly named as it really does smell like strawberries and cream! The tea smell followed me from the kitchen all the way to my bedroom that I just couldn't resist scooping a teaspoon into the newly bought birthday cup for Mr. C that is SO meant for tea and filling it up with hot water to brew.

I think, at the end of the day, I am still a red, green and black tea girl at heart. Although this strawberry and cream tea (sounds like some sort of perfume range or dessert) has an interesting taste to it, I'd most likely buy it as gifts for friends who are tea drinkers. 

Mr. C on the other hand, had a sipped and liked it. He proceeded to finish MY cup of Strawberry & Cream tea. :P

Am organising Miss Cutesie's hen day/night party and thought that this will make lovely gifts (packaged nicely and cutesily into little individual packages) for her other girlfriends who'll be along for a day of elegant High Tea followed by some risqué Burlesque moves proceeded by dinner in the city and games in the hotel before a night out painting the town red!

Which reminds me... I've yet to sit down and start making the stuff for the day. And away I go... but not before a picture of me savouring my tea! Alright. Two pictures. :)

I thought this picture represented me well as I savour the tea. Alas, my photographer, Mr. C said, "why are your eyes closed? Take another picture". 

And I leave you with an "eyes-open-wide" photo. Couldn't really warm my hands without scalding it! Lols. 

Next time I try this tea, I'll try making the drink according to the instructions instead of just plain tea with hot water.
