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.

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...

This deliciously dark brown brew fills the nostrils with a warm and easygoing aroma that is unmistakably chocolate and orange. A lovely drink to begin your advent calendar with, there’s no messing about with neither the smell or the taste. An instant favourite here at Andrew James, we are massive fans of rooibos tea anyway and we cannot get enough of the chocolate twist to this...
