Bruu Advent Calendar Day 25: Bai Mudan

by Team Appkettle December 25, 2018

This is a fantastically delicious brew to finish the Bruu Advent Calendar with. The scent is beautifully floral and the taste is one to die for. We at Appkettle cannot recommend this company enough. If you (or a loved one) is a tea drinker, Bruu is definitely the tea makers for you! From all of us at Appkettle, have a fantastic Christmas and all...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 24: Orange Ice Cream

by Team Appkettle December 24, 2018

This one may be called Orange Ice Cream, but this tea drinker’s taste buds were suitably satisfied by the delicious pieces of apple and mint included in the ingredients. Bright and creamy, this brew goes down a little too gently, making you gasp for another straight after.

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 23: Pedro BOP

by Team Appkettle December 23, 2018

Just a nice cup of tea. Seriously...a really nice cup of tea. Delicious with sugar in it, but just as good without, this Pedro BOP comes directly from our Sri Lankan tea plantation. The smell, taste and even look of this tea are as gentle as a fire on a winter’s day. The perfect brew to make with the Appkettle and a wonderful addition to...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 22: oOrange

by Team Appkettle December 22, 2018

This was another delightful pouch, complete with an intoxicating aroma. The terrifically orange scent finds out nostrils again as we wait for the tea to brew for the recommended 1-3 minutes. Only once the Appkettle has worked its magic, of course. A fantastic cuppa to enjoy, so be sure to enjoy it the right way - with good friends and a cheeky...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 21: Royal Star

by Team Appkettle December 21, 2018

Fairly full-bodied, this sweet tea is florally delightful. A pleasure to sip, the hints of vanilla make it such an easy brew to quaff as well. Truly fantastic when the water has been boiled to 80Read More


Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 20: Angels Kiss

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 20: Angels Kiss

by Team Appkettle December 20, 2018

Soft and sweet, but with an addictively bitter aftertaste, Bruu’s Angels Kiss is perfect for sipping on when the weather turns a little wild outside. The passion fruit was something we found particularly comforting as we drained our cups and were met with the disappointment that this beautiful brew was finished. Seriously, is there anything more soul-destroying than...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 19: Champagne

by Team Appkettle December 19, 2018

Well, pull out the cork! Ideal for a celebration (you know, like Christmas and/or New year - wink wink, nudge nudge), this has all the hallmarks of its alcoholic counterpart but has a ‘no hangover’ guarantee. With the Appkettle doing the business and boiling our water to the recommended 80Read More

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 18: Lemon Waffle (contains nuts)

by Team Appkettle December 18, 2018

One of THE most incredible smells we’ve ever experienced! Followed closely by one of the nicest tastes! We had to double-check the ingredients list for honey because this brew went down so smoothly, it became more and more delicious with every sip. If you have yet to try any of the fantastic teas we've tasted through the Bruu...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 17: Ginger Honey

by Team Appkettle December 17, 2018

Just reading through the ingredients for this fantastic concoction is enough for anyone to give it a try. With both ginger and apple pieces involved, this tea blends the two together to make a truly enchanting brew. After the Appkettle has boiled the water to the perfect temperature, it is recommended that this cuppa can take between 5 and 10 minutes for the tea to truly...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 16: Breakfast BRUU

by Team Appkettle December 16, 2018

A classic, even when we had it at 3.30 in the afternoon, this Breakfast BRUU was still exactly what we were after - refreshing and rich with a captivating aroma. Perfect when the water had been boiled to the recommended 90Read More

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 15: Sweet Lapacho

by Team Appkettle December 15, 2018

Fun to say; fun to drink. This incredible brew is perfect for anyone who likes the taste of zesty, smooth and, at points, very calm orange. Perfect for a wet and windy winter’s afternoon, this wholesome cup really hits the spot for anyone wanting to try something a little different from the normal brews. Quite possibly our favourite so far on the...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 14: Somerset BOP

by Team Appkettle December 14, 2018

Just a perfect cup of tea, Bruu’s Somerset BOP is a great drink to enjoy together with friends. Whether you enjoy your cups of tea with or without milk, you can’t really deny just how nice this brew is. There is a really relaxing feel to this tea, made entirely of Sri Lankan Black tea. Best enjoyed when the Appkettle boils the water to 100°C...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 13: Magic Moon

by Team Appkettle December 13, 2018

With the Appkettle boiling our water to exactly 100°C, we allowed this Bruu brew to brew for 2 minutes before enjoying this delightful hot drink. A gentle cup of sweet tea, Magic Moon goes down incredibly smoothly. Full of flavour and a highly exotic fragrance, this sumptuous cuppa is both fruity and floral with papaya and rose hip peel. Filling our workspace up...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 12: Lockhart Green

by Team Appkettle December 12, 2018

The beauty of this brew lies not just in its taste, but in its creation process. Made at Bruu’s very own Lockheart Tea Factory in India, the green tea leaves are heated, rather than oxidised. This gives it a very earthy aroma and taste. We set our Appkettle up to boil at a perfect 80°C and let the tea brew for a...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 11: Very Berry Green

by Team Appkettle December 11, 2018

Sweet and floral are the words used to describe this fantastic cup. But, we couldn’t help but get a whiff of… is that fruit pastille? A mix of fruit and floral brought a healthy discussion to the Appkettle office and we couldn’t quite agree what that secret taste was! With the Appkettle boiled to perfection at 80Read More


Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 10: Rose Amour

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 10: Rose Amour

by Team Appkettle December 10, 2018

This is a lovely cup of tea to bond with someone over and - showing our age here - as we sipped it, we could not help but sing this brew’s name to the tune of Erasure’s Oh L’amour. But, that’s enough of our off-key singing. The taste is one of a delicious perfume scent, which made a lot of sense, as...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 9: Ginger Bread Man

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 9: Ginger Bread Man

by Team Appkettle December 09, 2018

The Appkettle needs to be boiled to 100℃ and the tea is best when brewed for 3-5 minutes, so use this time to take in the scent of gingerbread (even though it’s surprisingly not one of the ingredients). Velvety is certainly the word for the taste. The first sip very easily (and quickly) becomes the second and the brew itself is a beautiful drink to...

Bruu Advent Calendar Day 8: Crème BRÛUlèè

by Team Appkettle December 08, 2018

The hint of fudge is incredibly strong and delicious even before you add the hot water to this delightful concoction. Sweet and not too bold, this brew simply dances on your tongue and, when the water is boiled to 100℃ and the tea is left to brew between 3-5 minutes, you cannot help but adore it. Here at Appkettle HQ, we certainly do. If you're following...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 7: Lockhart Gold

by Team Appkettle December 07, 2018

That’s a right proper brew, that. Direct from the Lockhart Tea Factory in India, this delightful drink is such a sweet little beverage, we’re probably going to order some for the office! Pop a spoonful of sugar in there and boil your Appkettle to 100℃ and let your Bruu brew brew for 2 minutes before enjoying it. One of our colleagues pretty much drank it in one go!...

Bruu Tea Advent Calendar Day 6; Lazzy Tea

by Team Appkettle December 06, 2018

Yeah, you didn’t misread that. There is an extra ‘z’, to emphasise just how easy-going this particular brew is. But, if that doesn’t convince you, the full flavours of rose and jasmine give you a smooth texture that is just crying out for you to lie back, put your feet up and do nothing but enjoy this light cuppa. Because we’re good little people,...

Bruu Advent Calendar Day 5: Cheeky Digestive (contains dairy)

by Team Appkettle December 05, 2018

This is a deliciously fun cup of tea. With a strong smell of - yes, digestive biscuit - and a quick check of the ingredients tells you where the sweet, sweet taste has come from. Quick question: where has the genius who decided to put a mini marshmallow in tea been all our lives? We used the Appkettle to boil the water to the recommended 100℃...

Bruu Advent Calendar Day 4: Biscottea Black

by Team Appkettle December 04, 2018

Christmas in a cup. The cinnamon and orange flakes create a smooth fruit-tastic effect on the tongue. Best brewed at 90-100°C and kept in the cup for 2-3 minutes, this gentle brew has hints of mulled wine, making it a firm favourite here at Appkettle HQ. Sweet and a little tangy at first taste, Biscottea Black is definitely one we recommend. Be sure to get...

Bruu Advent Calendar Day 3: It’s just Assam

by Team Appkettle December 04, 2018

You know that classic tea taste? Well, this is it. Nothing fancy about It’s just Assam. It is - literally - just Assam. And we love it. The aroma makes you want to reach for the rich tea to accompany. With the Appkettle, we brewed this to perfection - 100°C for 2-3 minutes - and the resulting brew was nothing short of delicious.

Bruu Advent Calendar Day 2: Chococa Black (contains dairy)

by Team Appkettle December 02, 2018

The taste of coconut and chocolate in this teas may be subtle, but the scent certainly is not. Something to behold and savour, the smell of this warm brew got this writer all comfortable, letting him completely forget he had work to do. Too easy to compare with If Terry’s did Rooibos, from the first day of the charming Bruu advent calendar, Chococa Black came...
