Dunedin Tea - teas from all around the world in one place

Do you still remember your New Year’s Eve resolutions? Oh, yes, eat less sugar, sweets and maybe artificial sweeteners.
I was ok during the first two weeks, but the unignorable sugar craving attacked me later.
Drinking tea and coffee helps me to forget snacks. I love sweet tea and coffee, but on 1st January started to drink them without sugar and sweetener. I used to it, but it was no more a pleasure.
I was sure, I should find other solution!

Women’s magazines sometimes have really good advices. I have read, ground cinnamon naturally makes unsweetened coffee and tea tasting sweeter. Cinnamon is my favourite spice, so I took this advice. I can confirm it works – my tea and coffee is tastier with a pinch of ground cinnamon. Since then I use it regularly in my hot drinks.  That is fine, but one flavour is not enough for a whole life.

So I tried Dunedin Tea. It made a big difference in my eating and drinking habits – in my life.

I am in love with Dunedin Vanilla Cream Tea - A delicious synergy between excellent high grown tea, rich fresh vanilla, and a lovely cream character. This loose tea sachet contains Black tea, Calendula + Jasmine + Sunflower petals and Natural flavours.

It is a magic, what this little white flower can make in a tea cup.
Vanilla Cream Tea is designed for special occasions as well as being a dessert tea. Vanilla is reported to have ‘magical’ properties that calm nerves and lift the spirit as well as allegedly improving the romantic aspect of one’s life.

Light colour - intensive flavour

My second favourite is one extremely milky tea (as the name shows too), the delicious Dunedin Milk Oolong. A most unique character best described as premium oolong with sweet milk and light orchid notes peeking out from camellia depths. Mmmm….delicious.

This strange look makes very intensive flavour!
Milk Oolong is produced in both China and Taiwan. This is the latter and has been produced in the traditional fashion which imparts the milky characteristic through a dramatic change in the weather conditions. The liquid is bright and delicate with a distinct sweet and milky flavour.

Fred never had so sweet bath before!
Fruity teas are the best cheat drinks when you experience sugar craving. Dunedin Bora Bora Mango is a naturally caffeine free rooibos tea from South Africa. Its cup Characteristic claims, delicious fruit highlights transport one to tropical climes. Ingredients: Rooibos, Mango + Pineapple pieces, Blackberry leaves, Calendula petals and Natural flavours.

Sweet warm rooibos tea with a hint of mango

You can easily order from Dunedin's well made website. They sell high quality tea from all around the world. There are lots of photos and punctual descriptions about Dunedin Teas. You do not buy a pig in a poke. You can choose from different:

Just take a look!

If you are already there why not buy some distinctive teaware and accessories. Perfect as a gift too!

Santa Pod Raceway - The Unforgettable Experience

We visited Santa Pod Raceway in Northampton last Saturday. I was lucky enough to win a whole family ticket to Stunt Fest.

I like cars, so I was sure I will enjoy this show, but my enjoyment was bigger as I expected. Santa Pod Raceway is an unforgettable experience. If you have not been there you must visit it!

Gates open after 10 am but the show in the Live Action Arena starts after midday. There are plenty of things to do before the big show. I advise you to try everything before the show because the show is very dynamic and there is only one interval.

What can you experience on your skin before the main show begins:

-     Monster Truck Rides and Mini Monster Truck Rides (there is endless queue, you must wait minimum 30 minutes to try the Red Dragon)

-         Fun Fair Rides

-         Drift Rides (I went just 3 round but I enjoyed it a lot)

-         Drift Trikes

-         Car Displays

The main attraction lasts more than 3 hours and it is extremely interesting. Just watch my videos and enjoy the voice – unfortunately you cannot smell burned tyres.

Trybe product tests

Trybe product test site gives you good opportunity to test products. They send you the product and you write a short review on their website.
You can apply here:

I have got two chocolate bars so far to test.

The first one was TWIX:

Twix is a chocolate bar what I love since my childhood. Sweet memories! It is a caramel pleasure. The biscuit makes it chewy and its plain taste harmonizes with the sweetness of the thick milk chocolate coating. I love there is two bars in the sachet so you can share it easily, without a mess.

I tested SNICKERS too:

I love Snickers! I love the perfect infusion of sweet milk chocolate, sticky caramel and crunchy peanuts. Peanuts are even healthy, so Snickers is a healthy chocolate. It is a good food on the go, because it really fills you up. It has a right size – perfect afternoon snack!

My third Trybe project:

My family tried and tested Haliborange Softies which look, feel and taste as candies but are multivitamin & omega 3 food supplements for children (and for hubby as the biggest picky kid too). I have got six mini packs of five delicious ruby orange flavour mini Softies.
You can give these vitamin supplements to your kids without any worry, because they never will find out it is not a candy. Even the pickiest child would enjoy it.

Haliborange Mini Packs are a little bit pricey in Boots but they are worth the price.
It is a perfect and tasty multivitamin specially designed by experts for everyday support.
The high quality essential ingredients are:
• Omega -3 DHA: Contributes to normal brain function.
• Vitamin A: Helps support normal vision.
• Vitamin B6 & B12: Contributes to normal energy release.
• Vitamin C: Helps support the immune system.
• Vitamin D: Essential for the normal growth and development of bones in children.
• Vitamin E: Contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This means it is an antioxidant.
