Tea is a wonderful thing. I’m sure most of you all will have a relationship with tea, however weak or strong, and I’ve got some wonderful new products to show you! Dragonfly Tea are a longstanding British tea company who have just released a selection of green teas which are just fabulous. These aren’t your ordinary green teas though, so for those of you who don’t like the traditional taste of a green tea and who find it too bitter, these are perfect for you! I took the green teas with me to my mum’s flat on the Ipswich Marina to relax and unwind after a very busy week. This is how Dragonfly Tea Brings Harmony to my life:
The flat is such a great place to come and take some time out to relax. It’s so refreshing and quiet where you can watch the people come and go from the balcony, or you can cosy up in the lounge or bedroom for a great night in. I took all three boxes of my Dragonfly Tea with me-
Citrus Green is so refreshing and zingy, the extra kick of lemon in green tea is my absolute favourite. It’s perfect as a palette cleanser as well as a great way to purify and detox at the same time. I always feel great after I have a lemon green tea, and it really helps me to drink more water as I find it really difficult to drink water straight up.
For those green tea enthusiasts who care for the original taste. Pure Green has a wonderful flavour which I love about green tea. I love to sip this in the afternoon which helps me stay energised and keeps me going until dinner time!
I tried Berry Green last and this ended up being such a nice surprise. A lot of teas who claim to taste of berries are really disappointing and don’t really taste much of anything, but this is definitely not the case with Dragonfly’s brew. It is bursting with lovely berry tones which I fell in love with. This is the drink I decided to take most of my shots with as I didn’t want to put the cup down!

I even had my mum involved as we sat together on the balcony on the sun bed!

For coeliacs and those who are gluten free, it sometimes sucks when all you’re craving is
a gorgeous burger or some fried chicken. Even living in one of the
world’s most popular cities sometimes has its limitations when it comes to living gluten free. It’s not easy when you’re out unless you have scoped out the
area you are travelling to to see what’s about. So here’s where Niche
comes in. Located just a 5 minute walk from Angel, Niche is
a completely gluten free restaurant. I want to tell you all about my visit there and why, for me, the only way is Niche
So we (my partner in crime Paul) arrived for around 7.30 and were immediately seated near the window. It is a quaint place that can seat around 25 people. The lighting is relaxed and chilled and the music is lovely so it’s a perfect place to take your gluten free bestie or your partner.
The menu is laid out on the table so you can begin to feast your eyes over all the possibilities as soon as you are seated. I went straight in for the starters and ordered the Parmesan and cheddar doughnuts. As I said, fried food is a tough one to find as a coeliac! Paul had the soup of the day which was tomato.
Both were really lovely and flavoursome and the presentation flawless- we each paired the starters with homemade lemonade. For the mains, I had to go for the Cheeseburger with extra avocado. It’s not every day I get to order a burger with the bun! It was so beautiful when it came out, I didn’t want to eat it… but I did 😉 Paul had a fantastic sausage and mash- I nipped a bite from his plate too, it would be rude not to sample his dish!
By this time we were both feeling full as the generous portion sizes settled, but I had my eye and heart set on ordering a cheesecake and so that’s what I did. The passion fruit cheesecake was lovely. Sadly my dessert was far too much for me to finish it all off after the first 2 courses, but somehow Paul polished off his chocolate brownie with ease. I must say that both desserts were delightful and I wished I could have finished mine!
Needless to say I really recommend Niche
to all gluten free Londoners and travellers as it is
such a fantastic place. The
service was sublime, the
food divine and not a drop of wine in sight! Go check Niche
out now and see for yourself how great the
dining experience can be for coeliacs. We sometimes forget that our diet does not control us, we can decide where we want to eat. The only way is Niche
when you’re looking for some extraordinarily good gluten free food so thank you so much Niche for hosting us!
