Tea of the Month: September

I’m so glad Autumn is finally here. Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons by far; partly because of the ridiculous amount of tea I consume (with no judgement!). There’s nothing better than snuggling under my Disney blanket with a hot cup of tea, listening to the wind and rain hit against the window. Or if I’m heading out for a walk (when the air is cold and crisp), I take a flask of tea with me. I’m very rarely without tea!

September’s Tea of the Month goes to a tea which I have been reaching for pretty much every single day (I’ve gone through two or three boxes throughout September alone). During my morning walks with the dog, this tea has certainly kept me warm and in the evenings, it has been the perfect as I snuggle up to watch a movie. It’s warming, comforting and makes me feel cosy – exactly what I need as the mornings get foggier and the evenings, darker.


My Tea of the Month is YogiTea’s ‘Green Chai’: a green tea blended with cinnamon, spearmint, cardamom and ginger.  Normally, I really don’t like cinnamon so I was a bit apprehensive about trying this but it is so yummy. I don’t find the cinnamon too overpowering; it works really well with the spearmint.  The flavours compliment each other beautifully and remind me of Christmas, which is always a good thing.

Each box contains  17 tea envelopes and as always, you’ll find brewing guidelines on the box. YogiTea recommend brewing for about 7 minutes, or longer to suit personal taste. I usually let mine brew for approximately 5 minutes which is enough for me.


I wish I could get a candle that smells exactly like this tea because that’s how much I love it. It just makes me feel so cosy. If you’re looking for a tea that is warming, aromatic and perfect for the colder months ahead (I swear snow is on the way), I highly recommend you try this.

    I’m still to try YogiTea, I always hear good things about their blends and taste! This sounds Autumnal perfection x

  2. October 4th, 2016 / 7:24 pm

    I am more of a coffee drinker, but do drink tea at times I was recently chatting to someone about green tea and really want to try it

  3. October 4th, 2016 / 7:32 pm

    Perfect for autumn days and getting in the mood. Lovely photos.

  4. October 4th, 2016 / 7:34 pm

    I am fond of tea. I will sure try Yogi tea which you have shared. Seems very tempting and good to taste.

  5. October 4th, 2016 / 7:41 pm

    I don’t drink tea or coffee – yes I am a little freak but I will say your flask is fab so if I can replace tea with a cosmo – I’m in!

  6. October 4th, 2016 / 7:48 pm

    I have to admit I often just stick to breakfast tea, I should really get more adventurous and try different types. x

  7. October 4th, 2016 / 8:00 pm

    Tea is more my thing at night. My relax go to at night

  8. October 4th, 2016 / 8:24 pm

    I only tend to drink teas and coffees in the colder months, but I love both cinnamon and spearmint so I would love to try these xx

  9. October 4th, 2016 / 9:21 pm

    I hear lots of things about this kind of tea, sounds good!

  10. October 4th, 2016 / 9:54 pm

    What a nice find. I think I’d like this combination. I like the idea of warming up with it at night.

  11. October 4th, 2016 / 10:34 pm

    Oh a cinnamon and spearmint mixture sounds really nice, I love anything which has a slight feeling of Christmas about it x

    • October 12th, 2016 / 9:41 pm

      Those flavors definitely seem to calm me. I think this is a good combo!

  12. October 4th, 2016 / 11:35 pm

    I don’t actually drink tea a lot but If I do I like trying out different flavours. This one sounds fab! xo

  13. October 5th, 2016 / 6:17 am

    My mummy loves tea and hot chocolate during Autumn and Winter as she’s not a coffee drinker. This blend sounds lovely!

  14. October 5th, 2016 / 9:16 am

    I’ve been drinking that chai tea and have really enjoyed it.

  15. October 5th, 2016 / 9:32 am

    Love your writing style, so easy to read. Autumn is my favourite season too but I am more of a coffee drinker.

  16. October 5th, 2016 / 9:41 am

    As you may have guessed from the name of my blog. I adore tea! Will keep an eye of for this to try

  17. October 5th, 2016 / 9:49 am

    I stick to black tea a lot, I should try something new! this looks wonderfully autumnal 🙂

  18. October 5th, 2016 / 10:45 am

    I like the sound of this but I really really love the flask x

    I like the sound of this, will have to give it a try!

    • October 6th, 2016 / 10:02 am

      Me too! I love snuggling up in my blanket with a hot cup of tea.

  20. October 5th, 2016 / 12:23 pm

    I’ve not tried this tea brand before but I’ll look out for it – it sounds lovely and your flask is gorgeous by the way! x

    • October 6th, 2016 / 10:02 am

      Thank you so much! I got it from Urban Outfitters a few months ago and it just sat on the shelf looking cute but now I need hot tea with me on the go!

    I’ve only recently started drinking green tea but I think I’d like the taste of this, especially with the cinnamon 🙂

    Dani x

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:57 am

      I usually find cinnamon really overpowering but the balance is just right in this tea. I think it’s the addition of the spearmint, it just works really well. Would love to know what you think if you try it! s

  22. October 5th, 2016 / 7:11 pm

    I keep hearing about this brand and how good it is, I am more of a coffee drinker but want to move to more tea and green tea in particular, I am going to have to give it go x

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:55 am

      It would be wonderful to know what you think. I do like coffee, but I’m definitely more of a tea drinker and only drink coffee on the odd occasion. I love green tea and there are so many good blends available to suit all tastes. If you need any advice on teas to try, just drop me an email or find me on Twitter. x

  23. October 5th, 2016 / 7:24 pm

    I love Yogi tea, not tried this one yet though. Certainly going to keep an eye out for it on my next shop

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:52 am

      I love the brand. Would love to know what you think of this blend. Enjoy!

  24. October 5th, 2016 / 7:57 pm

    That sounds like a delicious tea. I love this sort of tea and normally drink it all day. I need to try this one 😉

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:52 am

      You definitely do and I would love to know your thoughts. I have over 200 different blends in my collection and the fact I have gone through three boxes of this tea says a lot.

  25. October 5th, 2016 / 9:35 pm

    I am not a tea drinker, but I always find the amount of different teas fascinating!

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:50 am

      There are so many available now it can be quite intimidating. I think there is definitely a blend for everyone and if you don’t like hot tea, iced tea tastes just as satisfying.

  26. October 5th, 2016 / 9:38 pm

    I’m so boring when it comes to tea, I only like English Breakfast.

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:49 am

      Hahaha that is exactly like my mum. As much as I have tried, she just isn’t interested in any other tea blends. I do love a mug of English Breakfast tea too though, I must admit.

  27. October 5th, 2016 / 10:01 pm

    I’m not really a tea drinker anymore and certianly not coffee, I’m more a hot cocoa kind of girl 🙂

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:48 am

      Oh I love hot chocolate! I actually have a dark hot chocolate which I can’t wait to try. If you have any recommendations for good hot chocolate drinks, let me know.

  28. October 5th, 2016 / 10:04 pm

    This sounds like a very nice tea! I like trying different varieties of tea

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:46 am

      Thanks Melissa, I’m exactly the same. There are so many interesting and unique blends available that make tea drinking really exciting. Next on my list is a Sweet Chilli tea…that should be interesting.

  29. October 6th, 2016 / 12:29 am

    I am so glad Autumn is here too! That tea sounds nice

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:45 am

      It’s great isn’t it? I often get judged because I’m not a huge fan of Summer at all. I’d rather have Autumn or Winter any day!

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:44 am

      It is perfect for this time of year. If you try it, I would love to know what you think.x

  30. October 6th, 2016 / 9:29 am

    Autumn is great right? I don’t drink a lot of tea, but when I do I always go for herbal or green ones!

    • October 6th, 2016 / 9:43 am

      I love Autumn! I really enjoy green tea too and there are so many different blends that I love.

  31. October 6th, 2016 / 1:16 pm

    We have so much tea, it’s insane. But, you can never have too much. This is another one for me to try!

  32. October 6th, 2016 / 1:57 pm

    I’m loving eating and drinking warm cosy comforting stuff as the nights draw in. This sounds delicious!

  33. October 6th, 2016 / 4:16 pm

    I don’t really drink green tea often but this looks delicious!

  34. October 6th, 2016 / 4:40 pm

    This makes me want to try some tea now!

  35. October 6th, 2016 / 4:57 pm

    I love tea, particularly vanilla tea, which is a classic in France. I thought I would find it easily in England but nope!
    This bottle looks brilliant by the way.

  36. October 6th, 2016 / 6:28 pm

    I really need to check out YogiTea. I’m still making my way through loads of tetley at the moment!! xxx

  37. October 7th, 2016 / 7:06 am

    I really don’t like drinking tea – I find it so bland and tasteless. My nutritionist just recommended I try green tea – not looking forward to it.

  38. October 7th, 2016 / 4:07 pm

    This sounds perfect as we go into the colder months, always love a bit of ginger with anything 🙂 might have to give Yogi tea a try…

  39. October 7th, 2016 / 6:36 pm

    I’m definitely more of a coffee drinker and if I go for tea its more of a fruity one, I think I’m just too scared to try green tea but the fact it has cinnamon, cardamon and ginger in it makes it sound tempting. I can definitely see how it makes you feel cosy with those flavours xx

  40. October 8th, 2016 / 12:46 am

    I don’t drink many hot drinks but I feel like I need to start trying other flavoured teas! This sounds quite nice for me 😀

  41. October 8th, 2016 / 11:34 am

    I have a collection of at least 40 different types of tea so this Green Chai sounds lush. I love my teas!

  42. October 8th, 2016 / 12:02 pm

    This Yogi tea sounds lovely! My mummy drinks a lot of green tea at work so might check it out xx

    • October 11th, 2016 / 12:10 am

      It is so good. I’m loving it and I’m actually going to need to buy another box soon. Oops…xx

  43. October 11th, 2016 / 9:05 pm

    As your typical BWG, chai lattes are my downfall.. Should swap to the tea to save some calories! I generally find Yogi teas too spicy, but in this tea it can only be a good thing!

    ive never tried chai before and i love green tea. I’m really intrigued!

  45. October 18th, 2016 / 10:31 am

    I’m a big big tea drinker and Green Chai is one of my favourites after Earl Grey!

  46. November 14th, 2016 / 9:57 am

    Niceee !!! Your post just made me want to try this Green Chai as soon as possible 🙂
    Thank you for sharing this brand Sarah 😀
