A nice fruity tea for summer, our pick for TOTW is Higher Living’s Strawberry and Watermelon. Higher Living have been producing tea for over 45 years, and are certified organic by the USDA and Soil Association. This strawberry and watermelon tea has a base of chamomile and is infused with natural watermelon and strawberry flavourings.
After steeping this tea for 4-5 minutes as per the instructions on the packet, this tea has a very light colour that you might expect from a chamomile tea, also a light and delicate fragrance of fruit underneath the chamomile scent. The flavour of the strawberry and watermelon is quite subtle but leaves a fruity aftertaste which is pleasant. If you enjoy chamomile tea but find it a little bland sometimes, this would be an excellent tea for you. This tea does not require milk, and you can go without any sweetener unless you like a very sweet tea. This would be a perfect tea for making iced tea with on a summer’s day – see our blog here for a quick and easy iced tea recipe. A few mint leaves and ice would go down a treat!

It is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties, which means it can be helpful for stomach cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, and other common ailments. Chamomile tea is perfect for drinking after meals or in the evening to help promote restful sleep.
