We are really excited for Day 12 of our Tea Advent Calendar!! We are sure you're going to love today's tea. It's..... Bramble!

Bramble is a fruit infusion inspired by the famous Bramble cocktail. We loved the flavour from this cocktail so much that we wanted to recreate an alcohol free version as a tea! This tea contains apple, blackberries, lemon peel, and natural blackberry flavouring.

You may remember seeing Bramble in last year's advent calendar and this delicious fruit blend is still exclusive to the advent calendar! So enjoy today's tea all to yourself...You deserve it! But keep an eye out... we plan to share this tea with everyone else later in 2020 with a launch in the Summer!!

How We Like it

Use freshly drawn boiled water. Infuse one tea measure per pot and brew for 4-6 minutes to your taste… We prefer to leave it for about 5 minutes to allow the flavours out.

Bramble is naturally caffeine free so you can enjoy this cuppa at any time of the day! As it is the festive season, we thought that we would enjoy today's tea with a twist in a Bramble gin cocktail!
