WIN Tickets to the World’s First Ballet on Water With Taylors of Harrogate


It occurred to me that I haven’t given anything away on here for a while. Well, that’s about to change, amigos!

Attending a ballet is something everyone should do once in their life – that is a stone cold fact. So, here’s your chance to do just that. Taylors of Harrogate has collaborated with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to launch its new range of fruit and herbal tea infusions with an exclusive moon-lit, tea-tasting experience. Hosted in the magical setting of Kew Garden, the evening will feature a unique, first-ever performance by Northern Ballet, on water! I shall be in attendance and I cannot wait!

Taylors and I have teamed up to offer you the chance to win tickets for you and a friend to attend the event on Thursday, 8th May, 7.30pm – 10pm as well a supply of the new fruit and herbal infusions on the night.

The new Taylors of Harrogate tea has been certified by the experts at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (ooooh, fancy!) and the range consists of six masterfully blended infusions: peppermint, lemongrass and ginger, chamomile and vanilla, spiced apple, sweet rhubarb and blackberry and elderflower.

My favourite tea ritual is getting home from work, putting the kettle on and then unwinding from the day with a proper cup of tea.


First mug of the day on its own, second mug with toast, third mug with a digestive … and so it continues.

first tea in the morning, served by my son. it tastes like proper tea!


My favourite is a cup of peppermint tea after dinner, lying on the sofa reading a book after a day at work


My favourite ritual is a nice cuppa in the evening to relax and wind down before going to bed (I know plenty of people actual wake up from tea in the evening but it has the opposite effect on me!).

Amazing giveaway, I’d love the chance to see the first ballet on the water, it sounds magical!


My other half always makes the tea in our house and knows just how I like it. Teapot left to brew, then poured into my favourite china cup with saucer with milk from the jug. Not forgetting of course, a cheeky biscuit on the side for dunking!

Oh, how I love tea! I only started properly enjoying it since I moved to the UK 8 years ago, and now I wouldn’t dream of spending a single day of my life without having a cuppa! My daily tea ritual revolves around settling down on my sofa for a little cuddle with my dog (Dave-the-dachshund), a jaffa cake (another great British invention), and a cup of freshly brewed tea. I admit that Spiced Apple by Taylor’s is my favourite, and in fact, I buy it every time I visit the Kew (I am a loyal member of the gardens)
