Comins Tea House

Hi! So last week I went on holiday and we went to Comins Tea House in Sturminster, Newton, Dorset. It was such a great place that I had to feature it on my blog! A tea house is basically where you try lots of traditional teas from all over the world (no PG Tips here!). It was quite different to your classic Cath-Kidston-floral-apron-vintage-tea-cups sort of tea place, as you’ll see! Keep on reading to see some photos and a quick review of this brilliant place!

Comins Tea House is very minimalist, which is a nice change to the classic pink floral houses you see! Don’t get me wrong, I love a little Cath Kidston but this was a lot more unique! The minute we walked in the owner, Michelle, welcomed us and took us to a table in the adorable courtyard. Luckily, it was a really sunny day! My aunt and I shared the ‘Comparison’ tea menu, where we tasted 5 different teas. Don’t even ask what the teas were called, I can barely pronounce them let alone type them!

Michelle gave us a run down of how everything works and how the tea house started, which was actually really interesting! We then chose our teas and a couple cakes, try the chocolate caramel shortbread, YOU WILL DIE OF HAPPINESS (and sugar overload…). Michelle then brought out our teas every 10 minutes or so, telling us where each tea came from and how it is made. She then explained how long to steep it for, and gave us a timer so we could do it ourselves. It was so much fun!

I then told her about how I visited a tea house in Beijing and she took genuine interest in it, which was so lovely! Overall I really enjoyed my time at Comins, I will definitely return!

Have you ever been to a tea house? What was your experience? I’d love to know!

Lots of Love,

Lottie’s Life: Drinking Tea!

Hey everyone! Not much as happened this week so when all else fails, what should we result to? Tea. Always! I’ve been really loving this Pukka Peppermint and Licorice Tea at the moment. I don’t really like ‘real’ tea, I find it quite bland and boring. And coffee is too strong and bitter for me so I settle in the middle for herbal teas! I love the Teapigs Peppermint and Licorice Tea but it’s sooooo expensive, I can’t really afford to drink it every night! Plus how cute is my teapot from Sainsbury’s? And it matches my Starbies mug! Life is now complete people!

I also love fruity teas such as Twinings Mango and Cinnamon or Mango and Strawberry! Actually, I think I love all teas as I love green tea as well. To be honest I don’t think you find many teens who blog about tea, but I guess it’s better than me getting horrible teeth on Sprite and all that weird stuff. But let’s be real, no one can resist a cold glass of Robinson’s Orange Squash!

What are your favourite teas? I need your recommendations so I can try more!

Lots of Love,

Lottie ♥
