Time for tea: brew essentials you need for your next catch-up

Gone are the days of tea being as simple as tea bags and hot water. Now, it's all about using loose leaf tea, cold brew, fancy tea pots and trying a range of tea flavours. Tea is the best drink to keep you warm, cosy and relaxed, so winter is the perfect time to get your tea game in order.

There's nothing better than getting together with your girlfriends and enjoying delicious tea while simultaneously spilling some tea if you know what I mean (and if you don’t, spilling tea is a new term for gossip!). For the next catch-up with your girls, why not enjoy a round of tea, a new Netflix series and some delicious snacks? To have the best tea time with your girlfriends, you'll need to get your brewing essentials in order. Here are some of our faves.
