Tea of the Month – August

Hey lovelies!

Hope you are all keeping well and ready for September. It is time for another Tea of the Month! I love writing these posts because as you know, I love tea and even though I have been on holiday this month, I have found a new tea which I have been drinking a lot during the month of August.


I spotted this tea in Holland & Barrett and thought that it was a tea I had to try. I love coconut and I drink a LOT of green tea but I had never thought of putting these two together! Heath & Heather;s Organic Green Tea with Coconut is sold in boxes of 20 envelope bags (£2.49)


The packaging is simple, yet attractive. I love the colour, the coconut image and the fact that everything is kept simple. The box itself is durable and holds each of the tea envelopes in a very organised fashion (I am very fussy about this, weird as it sounds). The tea envelopes are simple, yet cute and perfect for travelling. I like that Heath & Heather has kept the packaging simple and let the teas speak for themselves. 


Brewing time for this tea is about 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea (some people don’t like green tea particularly strong but I do). On the packaging Heath & Heather promises to give you ‘a tropical taste of paradise’ and I can honestly say, they do exactly that! The coconut ‘kick’ doesn’t come until afterwards but it honestly is beautiful and leaves a nice after taste in your mouth. I know lots of people who don’t enjoy green tea (but want all the benefits) and I cannot recommend this tea highly enough to anyone who falls into that category. It is fragrant, calming and utterly delicious. The balance of coconut flavouring is exactly right and it is not sickly or too sweet.

I don’t grade teas out of ten (I probably should, that would be awesome, haha) but I am in love with this tea. 10/10 from me!! What I love most is that green tea has been paired with a tropical sidekick and even on a cold winters night, this tea has the ability to transport you to white golden sands and clear blue waters. I thought this tea would make a refreshing summer drink (and don’t get me wrong, it does) but I can definitely see the appeal of drinking this on a dreary, miserable day (which in Glasgow in August I’ve been doing a lot of!) Thanks so much to Heath & Heather for creating such an amazing tea!

    Ooh yum! I've been looking forward to this post and you didn't disappoint! I'm a green tea freak, I drink so much of it and I don't understand people who take the bag out after like a minute, I leave it in even while I'm drinking the tea (is that weird? Some people have said so!)
    Anyway this is another one to add to my list – I only buy Twinings nowadays but I may have to branch out for this 🙂

      Hey lovely!

      Thanks so much for commenting! I need to improve my photography skills badly but this tea is so yummy, even the best photos would not do it justice! You need to try this seriously. I had my doubts of whether the combination would work if I'm honest, but it really does!

    Amazing! Just bought a new teapot (Alice in Wonderland, no less!) and have been on the lookout for some good tea – will be trying this one, it sounds lush!

    3rd time lucky Google seems to be playing with me tonight. I have just invested in green tea and some coconut oil as I've heard a lot about the benefits of them lately. If I like, I may just invest in this too. Boost my points on my H&B rewards card too.

      Hey Nichola!

      Thanks for commenting! I love the the rewards card (next to my Boots Advantage card which is my all time fave, haha!). This tea really is lovely and I love the fact the coconut just appears at the end. I think that works really well and is why I love it so much.

      Hi Holly!

      Thanks for your comment. I think you will like this because it is perfect for those who don't really like the taste of green tea and the coconut kick at the end is so good!
