Maldon salt

When I first saw the pyramid shape of Maldon Salt, I just fell in love with it.

Not only does it taste good, it looks so cool!!

They also have smoked salt too which is pinkish.





Dreyer's D-Collection Pistachio icecream cone

Dreyer's D-Collection pistachio icecream is gorgeous but the icecream cone version was disappointing because the icecream in the cone is mainly vanilla and not pistachio.
The only pistachio icecream you get is the visible part which is not a lot!!

GERBER Graduates Fruit & Veggie Melts

The Very Berry Blend was rather sharp, perhaps it was for toddlers hence the stronger taste compared to the Strawberry.

The pieces were very powdery when I took them out and I got powder on my fingers.
Again, they tasted like meringue with a fruity sharp taste.



GERBER Graduates Strawberry Yoghurt Melts

Bought these without knowing they were for babies (crawler stage) but I was attracted because it was similar to Meringue drops.
The taste was amazing and tasted like freezed dried strawberry yoghurt with a lovely tart taste that was not too sweet.
Definitely a treat for babies without the sugary issue.
I also tried the Very Berry blend which was for toddliers.

Doritos chili heatwave

After trying so many Asian crisps, you will appreciate how delicious British crisps are, but I have always loved them British crisps anyway.

Tried the Doritos chili heatwave which was surprisingly good, it was not too spicy with a hint of lemon that was amazing.

For Asian spicy flavours they will have a nasty sweet tone to it.

NIK NAKS Nice 'n' Spicy Flavour


I love NIK NAKS but my favourite flavours Scampi 'n' Lemon and Hard Cheese have been discontinued because the makers wanted to make Nik Naks a less smelly brand.
The Nice 'n' Spicy Flavour was not spicy but it was very acidic.


Nice 'n' Spicy Flavour ingredients:
Maize, Sunflower Oil (37%), Nice N' Spicy Flavour [Sugar, Yeast Extract, Natural Flavourings (contains Barley Malt Vinegar, Barley Malt Extract, Soya Sauce, Wheat Flour), Salt, Dried Onion, Citric Acid, Curry Powder (Spices, Rice Flour), Malic Acid, Spice, Flavourings (contains Soya Sauce, Wheat Flour, Colour: Paprika Extract, Spice Extracts, Garlic Extracts)].

Numi Organic teas

"Numi Organic Tea is a privately owned triple bottom line social enterprise based in Oakland, California. Numi is known for its assortment of organic and fair trade certified teas and herbal "teasans".
The company was founded in 1999 by brother and sister, Ahmed and Reem Rahim. The founders named the company "Numi" after the citrusy, Middle Eastern dried lime tea they drank as children growing up in Iraq. The name Numi is derived from the Arabic word forcitrus." saids Wikipedia.

I was so lucky to get a sample of their savoury teas, organic teas and Dry desert Lime from Green Pharmacies in Hong Kong.

The organic range I tried were:

Chamomile lemon
 Emperor's Pu Erh
Decaf Ginger Lemon
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
White Rose
Jasmine green

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Jasmine green
(Fair trade certified organic green tea scented with organic jasmine flowers)
The Jasmine tea was nice and pleasant.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Rooibos (earthy vanilla)
(organic roobos)
The smell of this was similar to chipped wood but the taste was not as strong as I expected.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Emperor's Pu Erh
(organic black Pu erh tea)
The pu erh came out strong with a dark brown colour, it's tastes was earthy and strong.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Chamomile lemon
(Fair trade certified organic Chamomile, organic lemon myrtle)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
White Rose
(Fair trade certified organic white tea, organic rosebuds)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Decaf Ginger Lemon
(Fair trade certified organic decaf green tea, org, ginger, lemongrass)
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

The latter three were not bad but I am not a fan or floral teas and lemongrass.

You can buy these on their website Green Pharmacies or Citysuper (Time Square, Shatin), Organic stores and Beauty Salons.

Numi Dry Desert Lime Herbal Teasan Tea

I was not sure what to expect for the Dry Desert Lime, but the name looked promising.
The ingredient was only dried lime which was great because it had nothing else mixed in such as lemongrass.

When I opened the sachet, there was a strong dried lime smell which was wonderfully similar to the smell of Chinese dried lemons.

After steeping it, the taste was amazing, it had a strong citrus taste that was moreish and you could taste the natrual acidic flavour of lime.
I think it would taste great with a pinch of salt just like how Tequila is served with a dash of salt on the rim.

You can buy Dry Desert Lime on their website Green Pharmacies or Food Garden at Lai Chi Kok.

The savoury teas were amazing, they were similar to light Chinese soups without the meats and oils which make them ideal for vegetarians.
Aftering drinking it, there was no thirsty feeling.

I had fun opening the teabags too to see what were inside them and there were pieces of dehydrated vegetables which are actually edible after it has been steeped because I ate them too.

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Spinach chive:
Ingredients: Spinach leaves, chives, dried lime, dill, onion, decaf green tea, coriander, turmeric, garlic.
This had a strong cilantro smell when I took it out of the sachet.
The taste was really pleasant but for a stronger tastes I would advise steeping it longer and putting less water.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Broccoli Cilantro
Ingredients: Broccoli, celery leaves, allspice, onion, cilantro, decaf green tea, garlic, black pepper, sage, turmeric.

This had a lovely black peppery tone and it was like a diet version of cream of broccoli which is good for people on diet and still wanting to drink soup.
I loved the woody taste of the tea.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Carrot Curry
Ingredients: Carrot, curry, cilantro, onion, ginger, turmeric, decaf green tea.
There was strong curry taste and smell but I found the cilantro too overpowering.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Fennel Spice
Ingredients: Fennel, celery root, orange peel, onion, dill, decaf green tea, honeybush, black pepper.
The fennel spice had lovely spicy tones, great on a cold day.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Tomato Mint
Ingredients: Tomato, onion, mint, lemon peel, parsley, cinnamon, black pepper, decaf black tea, allspice.
The tomato mint was surprisingly good because I am not keen on mint but the tomato taste was really strong with a lovely refreshing moreish aftertaste that real tomatoes have.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
BEET CABBAGE:
Ingredients: Beet, cabbage, dried apple, decaf black tea, mustard seed, parsley, orange peel, coriander, clove, honeybush.

This was my favourite because the beetroot and cabbage were soothing with a lovely hint of spice.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
After trying the savoury range my favourite were: Broccoli cilantro, Beet cabbage and the Tomato mint.
