VRAC Ethical Tea Shop & AS.Apothecary for VRAC

Amanda is featured in June's Country Living magazine - she's on a roll as she's also in The Simple Things!

In the article she mentions that she makes a soap for VRAC based on tea - so I went off to investigate and purchased these..

VRAC Ethical Tea Shop is based in Lewes (where Amanda lives) and you can buy the teas (and soap) online. There is always around 30 to choose from which are from small estates around the world. Most blends are made by hand in the studio.

For my tea choice I picked Ceylon Chai (£8 - 100g) - I'm slightly obsessed with Chai and this one smells mouthwatering and is delicious! A blend of chocolaty fine whole leaf Ceylon from the Kataboola estate in Sri Lanka is blended with cinnamon, green cardamon pods, cloves, star anise and black peppercorns (I also like it with a splash of milk).

The Spring Tea Soap (£8 - 100g) Amanda has created for VRAC is simply divine. It's made in small batches using VRAC's Seogwang detox blend (Vietnamese Green Tea, Lemongrass and Ginger) and smells of citrus and spicy notes.
