Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot
November 24th is Thanksgiving in America. Traditionally a time of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and fort he preceding year but also a great opportunity to think about what you are thankful for in your own life. This year I’m feeling thankful for such a fantastic year here at BRUU. There have been some exciting opportunities for us and it’s been by far our best year to date.
On a personal note I’m thankful for a wonderful son, who never fails to put a smile on my face at least 40 times a day, and an incredibly supportive husband who I couldn’t have done any of this without.
What are you thankful for?
As always though it’s all about the teas and we can guarantee you are going to be thankful for the selection we’ve sent you this month.
Any traditional Thanksgiving feast would not be complete without pumpkin pie which is why we have selected the Winter Warmer tea. An excellent fruit tea for any day where you need to keep the cold away. Rich in flavour, warming, mildly spicy and low in acidity. You will love the aftertaste of cloves and cinnamon - all you need now is a crackling fire.
Next up is our Ginger Bread Man tea, a rich, naturally woody rooibos with added hints of gingerbread and orange. It’s naturally caffeine-free, incredibly festive and make a perfect treat.
Finally our Keemun tea is a delicious full-bodied Chinese black tea that is low in caffeine and provides a light, nutty festive cup. The aroma is almost flowery and there is a hint of smokiness in the aftertaste. It’s a velvety tea evocative of autumn's beauty and rich in heritage. The name Keemun originates from the town of Keemun in the province of Anhui, the very well respected tea-producing region of China. A man named Yu Ganchen travelled to the Fujian province of China to learn the secrets of quality black tea, as the Anhui province up to that point only produced green tea. What he learned on his travels enabled him to grow and produce the first Keemun tea, which quickly became popular throughout the world.
