In case it wasn't already clear, Sluttery HQ is run on tea. Even in a heatwave I can't give up the habit. Don't take my tea away from me, I will fight you for it. And frankly, it'll be a horrible sweaty fight right now, let's just sit in the shade and have a brew instead.
When Laura B wrote about Eteaket last week, I got all in a fluster (no, not because I was drinking scalding hot tea in 30 degree heat). But then Eteaket *gasp* hiked up the price of their yearly membership by nearly 100%. Ouch.
Luckily Twitter informed me about Love Tea and I'm pretty impressed at first glance. You've got three options to choose from, depending on how much tea you drink (I am not a reliable case study for this).
If you only have the odd cuppa, £4.50 a month will get you 50g of lose tea - enough for around 15-20 cups. £7 will get you double that and £13 will get you 200g of the leafy stuff and that's enough for 70-90 cups.
You get a different tea each month, so I'd be tempted to opt for the first option as something of a treat. That way I can try new teas but not give up my (frankly out of control) English Breakfast habit. And there's no commitment. If you're done with your tea exploring or have an enormous phone bill to pay, you can stop your tea deliveries at any time. That's my favourite thing about postal services - I have a hard time committing to anything, let alone stuff in the post. I'm really excited about Love Tea, I can wait for my first package to arrive.
