My favourite brand of tea is Clipper. Their tea bags are all unbleached, fair trade and use all natural and organic ingredients. Plus the packaging is super cute! The Clipper Green Tea with Lemon is what I drink every day. I’ve also recently tried the Twinings Loose Leaf Apple and Elderflower Pyramid Tea Bags and they are absolutely delicious. I also drink the Clipper Green Tea with Lime and Ginger from time to time as ginger is so good for the immune system.

    This has actually persuaded me to drink more green tea, especially as it speeds up your metabolism! I’ll definitely be buying tea from Clipper though, they sound like a really good brand! x

      Clipper are definitely a worthwhile brand to get into 🙂 They’re tea really does taste much nicer due to the unbleached tea bags
