good if you're feeling
chilled, but not in a good way - this tea will warm you through.

Milky - caffeine free, super spicy. Or add brandy for a totally festive brew.
Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. Sweeten with honey.
what is in it?
Rooibos tea, flavours, orange peel, ginko, orange blossom, cinnamon, ginseng root, cloves and safflower.
About the company
Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006. They met whilst working for a really big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank lots of it. And the more they learned, and the more they drank, the more they came to realise something: that there's a whole world of quality teas out there that simply aren't getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born.
Nick describes himself as a tea evangelist (although much nicer than those shouty ones on American TV). Louise, an experienced tea taster who has travelled the world tasting teas, is a self-confessed tea addict (not seeking rehab).
Together they founded teapigs and, since 2006, the teapigs team has grown a little. As well as Nick and Louise, there's now a team of 20!
