Cosy Tea Competition

posted in: Competition | 113

This competition is now closed. I have published all eligible comments made before the closing date/time and will announce the two winners soon. Good luck!

The lovely people at Beyond the Bean have donated two complete sets of the Cosy Tea range for me to give away to Splodz Blogz readers.

Cosy Tea Organic Tea Range

The set will contain one of each of the nine Cosy Tea organic tea flavours, including those three black teas I enjoyed far too much in my review (go read it!).

To enter you need to describe your perfect cup of tea in a comment on this blog post.

I know Sarah Millican would say it’s nice to drink a cuppa in the bath so you’re the same temperature on the inside as on the outside… but for me it would be sipping a good cup of Earl Grey whilst sat down on the sofa after a long walk in the countryside. It’s difficult to decide though, I’ll happily drink tea any time (and yes, including in the bath!).

    I usually only drink tea by choice when I’m pregnant, so my ideal up of tea would be sat with my feet up enjoying feeling my little one wriggle.

  2. Kerry Clark

    My perfect cup of tea is when I am completely stressed out and my partner surprises me with a lovely sweet cuppa! Perfect for winding down!

  3. Saran Benjamin

    I drink it when I first get up. leaving the teabag in just long enough so that it is not weak and not stewed. I have not got the point of tipping it into my saucer yet like my dear old Nan use to ha ha

  4. James Moran

    After a couple of hour’s hard work outside in the cold, there’s nothing better than a piping hot cuppa to warm my cockles.

  5. iain maciver

    first thing in the morning before eveyone gets up thats my perfect cup of tea

  6. Kim Leslie

    I love refreshing Peppermint Tea keeps me going through a long night-shift. Perfect

  7. Sandra Hook

    I love a good cuppa tea. Not too strong ~ so milk and 2 sugars while sat with my feet up reading a good book. My favourite cuppa of the day is the one my Dad makes me to wake me up :0) I also adore fruit tea…I am a right little tea bag!!!

  8. Jade

    I love a good strong cup of tea in the winter whilst sat on the sofa with my Snuggie blanket. Can’t beat it!!

  9. sharon griffin

    a cup of tea is best in my favourite cup, a small dash of milk and i`m ready to sup x

  10. Jen Schofield

    Perfect cuppa is put the tea bag plus milk in the bottom. Boil water (preferably on the hob for that authentic feel), then brew for 20 seconds by stirring (I like mine weak). Sit back and relax whilst reading blogs online!

  11. Maya Russell

    My perfect cup of tea is brewed until a rich, dark colour and then I add a bit of milk, not too much but just enough. I always love a cup of tea when I come home.

  12. Patricia Whittaker

    I don’t like milk so Earl Grey hits the spot especially with a choccie biscuit for elevenses

  13. rosie (@kohsamuirosie)

    green tea and jasmine- no milk- no noisy children.. just me and jeremy vine between 12 and 2 every week day! Oh … half term this week! Guess the only time my children actually want to squabble/ talk to me/ need a lift?

  14. Wend

    My perfect cup of tea is the first peppermint tea straight out of the packet! Individually wrapped sachets are my idea of heaven 🙂

  15. Gemma Turner

    A big mug (none of this cup/saucer rubbish) full of milky tea, lovely and pale! First thing in the morning, with a rich tea!!

  16. Dan Rous

    I only drink tea – and lots of it! But the time I really enjoy a warming cuppa is sat outside a tent while camping with my family

  17. Christina Massue

    My perfect cup of tea is pretty much every cup i’ve ever had #ireallyliketea

  18. Lisa Waugh

    My perfect cup of tea is at the end of the day when i am sat watching telly with my husband discussing the days events. Its great to chill and destress!!

  19. Fran Light

    My ideal cup of tea would be hot and black, drunk from a flask, sitting at the crest of a hill enjoying the view after a brisk, invigorating walk 🙂

  20. Kirsty Fox

    A nice milky cup of tea with one sugar, after I have dropped my eldest at school and done all the housework and my youngest is taking a nap, then it’s me time!!

  21. diane whale

    I love tea and drink it black without milk or sugar.The stronger the tea the better the taste.I am a tea addict

  22. Linda C

    First thing in the morning and as soon as I get in frowm work are my favourite cups, But anytine anyone else makes me a cuppa is a real bonus, Love my tea.

  23. Tracy Nixon

    Made in a china tea pot and sipped from a china cup and saucer! No teabag in a mug for me! I love tea that is not too strong but not too weak and with a little milk added to the cup before hand! I enjoy a cuppa with a simple digestive biscuit x

  24. Jimmy M

    Jasmine Green tea, left to enfuse properly, after a little work on the garden, just to relax and watch the bees at their work with the sounds of peace and calm surrounding me.

  25. Kate Cunningham

    I don’t drink tea too often but when I do I’m like Goldilocks and it has to be just right – too strong or too weak and I will start again! I like the tea pot to be warmed first and then the tea to sit for just the right length of time before pouring. I do put the milk in afterwards which goes against tradition but I like to get the colour the way I like it. I prefer English Breakfast and I often take it on holiday with me but different water and milk does affect it.
    When tea is right it is the best, most refreshing drink in the world – it heats you up, cools you down and calms any situation.

  26. Lisa Norman

    I LOVE tea – I drink it all day every day! First thing it in the morning before work, nice and strong to wake me up. During work it gives me good excuses to have as many breaks as possible. Another after work to wind down and then finally I have a milky, sweet tea in the evening! : )



  28. Sue

    Has to be a mug of Tetleys, A little milk no sugar and strong enough to stand a spoon up in it.

  29. Torz Langley

    My perfect cup of tea is Earl Grey with a touch of full fat milk. I love the creamy taste with the lovely flavour of earl grey. I am tea mad 🙂 xx

  30. Hilda Hazel Wright

    My perfect cup of tea is any that I clutch while I am sitting here with hands too cold to type! What is in the cup varies hour to hour! Sometimes decaf, sometimes Earl Grey, sometimes one of the many herbal varieties I have in the cupboard!

  31. Claire W

    I think the perfect time would be when it’s raining heavily outside and I sit covered in blankets next to the radiator with a cup of green tea in one hand and some biscuits in the other.

  32. Jo Young

    Some may think it’s sacrilege but my perfect cup of tea comes complete with a packet of rich Tea biscuits to dunk 🙂

  33. Pav

    My perfect cup of tea must be always my morning tea – I’ve made it a routine to brew a fresh, fragrant cup of plain green tea every morning, rotating few varieties to suit my taste and mood. Tantalizing my taste buds every morning is the perfect was to awaken myself. Thanks 🙂

  34. Rhonda

    Green Tea in my trusty mug, left to cool then i can drink the whole lot at once, no milk or sugar needed.

  35. realitybitesbaking

    Loved my cuppa the other night, watching the snow fall out of our cosy living room window with my daughter (aged 3 – just!) who was spotting penguins.. In the middle of London! Best cup of tea I’ve ever enjoyed. Needless to say, I didnt see any penguins, maybe I missed them all as I was indulged in my tea?!

  36. Jeremy Hards

    White with 2 sugars while I watch a good film with the cat curled up on my lap. Just perfect as we are all happy.

  37. Vanessa Cox

    I like a strong cup of tea so I usually put two bags with sugar and milk and leave it for at least three minutes. Then I enjoy drinking it on the sofa, preferably without any kids running around 🙂

  38. Deborah Wheeler

    The first cup of tea in the morning hot strong with a dash if milk – the 2nd one never tastes so good!

  39. Ruth Tesdale

    My perfect cup of tea is poured for me from a teapot on a balcony in the morning sun overlooking the sea.

  40. K W

    I love most kinds, but lately I really like chai teas-sorry for namedropping, but Teapigs chai and chilli chai are a particular favourite for this! I have a specific mug for tea/coffee, it’s got a frowny face made of coffee beans which portrays how I often feel before I get my drink! I pour a bit of milk in and microwave it (yeah, I know) so it’s just as hot as the boiled water, then I hold the teabag over the milk and pour the hot water over. It’s left to infuse for as long as I feel like waiting, then I add a bit of cinnamon, a teaspoon of honey, and sometimes a little bit of vanilla sugar. It’s amazing!

  41. Gloria Hartley

    My perfect cup of tea is mid afternoon when all my housework and chores is done and everyone is out and i can just sit have half hour online and think bliss.

  42. Michelle Obi

    My perfect cup of tea is a cup of green tea in the morning. It has to be in my special mug as for some reason it doesn’t feel as good. As I take my first sip I feel the green tea’s journey as it flows down my throat to my chest and finally stomach. All the while anticipating its benefits as I ponder the day ahead.

  43. Isobelle Forde

    My favourite cup of tea is sweet and strong Breakfast tea tea with milk drunk from a flask at the end of a nice days’s walk, warms my heart and rewards my efforts!

  44. adele

    My perfect cup of tea is Clippers Organic everyday tea, made quite strong with just a little skimmed milk and NO sugar. Easy really.

  45. hoops120

    My perfect cup of tea is the first one of the morning, brought to me in bed by my lovely hubbie. it’s always and English breakfast, fairly strong with just enough milk. Without it I can’t face the day. after that I love to drink Early grey, usually with milk!

  46. Mark Whittaker

    Love Rooibos with a little milk, really refreshing and without the caffeine.

  47. vicky haddock

    I love a cup of tea in the evening, really refreshing it has to not too strong

  48. Heather Haigh

    The first cup of the day. It has to be hot black tea, quite strong to wake me up. After that I like lots of different teas.

  49. D Martin

    The first cup of the day is bliss. Especially when brought to you in bed!! Perfect.

  50. Kate

    I always have to make tea in a pot with at least two tea bags, even if it’s just for me – I believe in the ‘one for the pot’ moto!

  51. Tina Mansfield

    My perfect cuppa has to be the first one of the day! I am spoilt as it is left at my bedside by my early rising husband. It cant be beaten…

  52. Daisy Bryan

    My perfect cup of tea is on a cold winters night curled up in front of the fire 🙂

  53. sheila

    The first cup of the morning, ideally brought to me in bed with a square of quality chocolate!

  54. greig spencer

    when ive finished at work sitting down with a nice cup of afternoon tea while watching the news, bliss 🙂

  55. Elizabeth

    I’m on drugs that dry my mouth out, especially overnight so nothing beats that first (enormous) cup of tea in the morning. Has to be English Breakfast Tea with just the right amount of skimmed milk (fresh – NEVER UHT) and a sprinkle of sugar. Aahhh. The other cuppa I cherish is that ‘just got home from being on holiday, the flight was late, the roads jammed, everything in my case needs washing and I’m back at work tomorrow and I know my inbox will be overflowing, but never mind because I can have a perfect cup of English tea’.

  56. Vicky A

    My perfect cuppa is hot, strong and sweet, when my toddler has gone down for a nap, sat on the sofa with a piece of cake and just enjoy a few minutes not worrying about anything except crumbs!

  57. Laura Lott

    My perfect cup of tea is Tetley Decaffeinated, medium strength and with a decent slug of milk, in a big mug. Should be served to me by husband whilst I am on the sofa, and should be accompanied by a large plate of chocolate chip cookies or a big slice of cake 😉

  58. Anene Cee

    I love a good cup of Rooibos with half a teaspoon of sugar and lots of milk.

    Preferrably with a biscuit to dunk! 🙂

  59. Louise MacGregor

    My perfect cup of tea is very hot, very sweet, very mily, and drunk while writing my novel. And a hobnob. Always a hobnob.

  60. ali thorpe

    My perfect cup of tea would have a delicate floral flavour, lightly fragrant and with just a hint of natural sweetness. Perhaps the flavour of rose? No need for milk, honey, sugar, just perfect on its own.

  61. Sheila Reeves

    That first cup in the morning, milk, no sugar – ahhh sets me up for the day!

  62. sheridarby

    My perfect cup of tea – the way my sister makes it after a long cold walk. A blend or Earl grey and everyday tea, medium strong and just a touch of milk

  63. Diane D

    A cup of English breakfast tea with semi-skimmed milk and a piece of buttered toast with marmalade first thing in the morning.

  64. Maddy Edwards

    A strong cup of English breakfast with just the right amount of milk, and a baby who sleeps for long enough for me to drink the whole thing (while it’s still hot).

  65. Becky Downey

    I feel CUPtented with a BREWED awakening every morning! Enjoying some expertTEAS and giving it ELEVENSES out of ten!

  66. Claire

    Well I’m currently helping to renovate my brother’s first house, and it’s pretty tiring, so my perfect cup of tea is Earl Grey, whilst relaxing on the sofa after dinner.


    My perfect cup is just after i get to work each day … i arrive, turn the computer on and then make a cuppa it always tastes so good

  68. Jane Willis (@janesgrapevine)

    My perfect cup of tea is the first ne in the morning. I use the special tea for hard water, as ours is so very hard, and brew it properly in a pot. Served quite strong with no sugar and a splash of skimmed milk (it has to be skimmed, anything else spoils the flavour of the tea for me) it’s a treat worth getting out of bed for.

  69. tracy horrex

    Perfect cup of tea has to be in the afternoon with a slice of homemade cake

  70. Rod Curtis

    The best cup of tea I can have is a steaming hot cup of PG from my flask after I’ve stood for two hours in the freezing cold waiting for the farrier to shoe my wifes horses>

  71. Lisa Pope

    My perfect cuppa is the one just before I go to bed……I tend to drink an ordinary tea through the day but my bedtime one is Camomile & spiced apple,

  72. Gwyneth

    My perfect cup of tea is the first cup of the day – strong, but also with lots of milk. I prefer it in summer when I can sit and drink it in the garden

  73. carol phile

    My perfect cuppa is the one I have during a glorious day of annual leave. The dog will be snuggled up beside me and there may, just may, be biscuits. Bliss 🙂

  74. Paula Woodhouse

    I work in a very full on job being a therapist working with troubled young teens, my favourite cup of tea..? Well the one over which a teen really starts to open up and ask for help of course.

  75. sue willshee

    My ideal cuppa would be after a long session outside having a snowball fight with the kids. When my nose is glowing and fingers are about to drop off from the cold I love to come inside and settle down with a cup of hot tea.
    I know some people drink tea to cool down in summer but I much prefer to use it to warm me up in winter instead 🙂

  76. jane

    My ideal cup of tea would be drunk when the kids are at school and I can have a couple of dunkable biscuits, a magazine and a bit of Jeremy Kyle
