Our Favourite Summer Teas
The sun is out, the holidays are in full swing and we're all making the most of the long summer evenings while they last. If you're a regular follower here at Good & Proper you may have noticed just how much we love Iced Tea - but when it comes to enjoying tea during these warmer months, hot tea is still a great option too. We lean towards lighter, floral and more delicate hot teas during this time of year, and it appears you do too. Here's a round up of what you've all been filling your cups with this summer.
A favourite of ours to be enjoyed at any time of year, but we really do love a hot cup of this on a warmer day. It has a clean vegetal flavour, with a hint of almond sweetness which feels rather up-lifting.
Zesty and fresh our loose leaf Lemon Verbena is perfect for long summer days and late summer nights. Brew for 3 minutes to enjoy a bright yellow, creamy cup of this relaxing herbal tea.
Medium bodied with a floral aroma, Darjeeling 2nd Flush loose leaf tea is elegantly fragrant with a unique muscatel flavour. We take ours without milk, usually in the afternoon and ideally in the garden with friends.
Incredibly pretty and always a crowd pleaser, the perfect addition to any outdoor dining set up. A little dash of honey is your secret ingredient here, but not essential. Our Hibiscus herbal tea is refreshingly tart, bright and fruity - it's summer in a cup really.
With lingering notes of tropical fruits, our Four Seasons Oolong is incredibly appealing during the summer months. It's smooth, floral, light and easygoing - best enjoyed alongside a little peace and quiet!
