The Wee Tea Company, Darling's Coffee Shop Vote and GBBO Semi-final!

As you will know by now, I have been selected to be a BBC Good Food Show blogger and I am going there tomorrow – very excited!

One of the things that the BBC Good Food Show does is to award bursaries to producers of new artisan products. The winners of the bursaries are awarded stands free of charge at the BBC Good Food Show, which then lets them be seen by tens of thousands of people.

One such winner of a bursary is ‘The Wee Tea Company’ an online tea merchant, who sell good quality loose leaf tea via their website. I was lucky enough to be sent a selection box of their artisan teas. Jamie and Derek, the guys behind the company are based in Dunfermline,

They have several flavours to choose from including Darjeeling and rose, Earl Grey and blue flower and of course classic breakfast blend.

I have tried a couple of the teas so far from the box and found them to be full of flavour, yet mild at the same time. I shall look forward to giving the rest of the teas a good sampling soon!

If you would like to have a look at their full range of goods, pop over to the site. As well as the teas, they stock accessories for making the tea, gift sets and a very informative page about tea, they have called UniversiTea!

I look forward to seeing you at the show guys!

Remember a few weeks ago I wrote about Darlings Coffee Shop, based in Arbroath where I live? The coffee shop does great work in the community by training people with a wide range of learning disabilities, and improving their employability. Well at the time I said they were up for an award ‘The Community Project of the Year’ via the RBS Scotland’s Real Heroescampaign. Well, the vote line has now opened! Please click on the link and vote, vote, vote before 25 October! They really deserve to win.

Lastly, this week’s Bake Off. I was gutted – I so wanted Becca to win. I personally think she should have stayed over Ruby. But now I think the final is down to either flavour or style – Kimberley or Frances. Not sure who I would like to win out of those two, it will be nail-biting!

Disclosure Statement: I received the teas free to try out. Any views expressed are my own. I was not paid to write this post.


  1. I agree re Bake off. When it gets to the final stages I think they should judge on their body of work, not just that week. I don't mind who long as it's Frances or Kimberley!

  2. How funny! I went to the Wee Tea Company stand in the BBCGFS and found their teas very interesting. I am drinking at the moment the Darjeeling and rose tea and love it. I am looking forward to bake with their products...
    About the Great British Bake Off, well, I think you're right....but we are not judging the thing...
