On to Day 13 of our Tea Advent Calendar and it's also International Christmas Jumper Day! Today's tea is Raspberry Ruffle which we will definitely be enjoying in our cosy jumpers here at Suki HQ! What a Friday treat!
Raspberry Ruffle is a black tea with coconut, chocolate and raspberry. Yes, please!
Tasting exactly like the much-loved raspberry ruffle bar (if not better!), you’re sure to feel all nostalgic with every sip you take. A rich zingy flavour with a sweet, creamy coconutty aroma.
The inspiration for this tea came from our NPD Manager Alex's favourite childhood memories; days of eating Raspberry Ruffles with her Granny in the back garden, or baking Raspberry Ruffle tray bakes with her Auntie. Alex is proud of this blend and she is excited for you to try it!
How We Like It
Infuse one tea spoon (2.5g) in 200ml freshly drawn boiled water and brew for 4-6 minutes… It’s your choice next, can be enjoyed with or without milk. At Suki HQ we think this tea is delicious made with milk, it gives a real creamy, full-bodied flavour!
As it is Friday and today is our Suki Team Christmas Dinner we thought we would enjoy today's tea with a festive twist.
