In the form of tea, the best drink ever! Grin (ahem, besides red wine...and real ale... Roll Eyes) Okay, so best hot drink ever!

I've made these up to put in with friends handmade gift bags for the holidays. The best thing is (besides tasting yummy) that they're organic and fairtrade Grin

I've called them 'traffic light tea' because of the colours of the wrappings and properties of the tea.
Red: to drink before a night out to revitalise
Amber: to drink the next morning to cleanse and detox
Green: to drink after it's all over to cool and relax till next year!



I think they look pretty cute bundled up in their little matchbook pile, and they were pretty easy to make. What do you think?

Did you make the actual packets of tea? I love the matchbook style wrappers! I don't drink tea but I know people who do and would appreciate these for christmas.

Thanks! I didn't make the packets themselves, they came like that. I just wrapped them in the matchbook style papers and made the fancy band to hold them together. Smiley Smiley
