A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Bloggers Hangout’s Tea Party!
Held in the Popup Patio in Finsbury Park on what was a lovely cool evening, loads of brands gathered together to show their wares. I had a lot of fun, and dragged my friend along to who I’m hoping will get into blogging some time soon because I’m always dragging her to events like these.
I didn’t visit all the brands because some of them were products with nuts, which I’m allergic too. Sucks, but I’m sure those brands are pretty cool!
As soon as we arrived, I was immediately drawn to a chocolate sculpture of a middle finger. The Cocoa Den, set up by the lovely Kate Burton, is a company specialising in fun, beautiful and delicious chocolates, cakes, centre pieces and more, for special occasions and every day treats. She is so talented! I didn’t get to actually try her chocolate samples, because nuts, but my friend said they tasted absolutely delicious.
Afterward, I immediately made a beeline for Mead Hø because I’m an alcoholic and it’s definitely not a problem. Mead Hø is a delicious light, sweet honeyed beer – we got to try a sample, and I swear I would robbed the whole stall if no-one was watching. It doesn’t taste like beer at all, which is great if you’re not a big fan of beer.
Also, they have pretty cool puns. “Catch mead if you can” “Hello? Is it mead you’re looking for?” Pahahahaha.
My favourite brand had to be Just Bee Drinks, who were kind enough to send me some of their newly branded drinks. It’s basically spring water enriched with a single drop of honey. A natural antioxidant & Less than 50 calories per carton.
Their drinks taste so refreshing, and they are best served chilled. You can find them in Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason. What’s cool is that they also sell wildflower seeds – plant them for lovely flowers AND to save the bees 🙂
There were several other brands we visited before leaving; here is a picture run down:
Oh, yes! How could I forget Bio-tiful Dairy? I’m not a big fan of milk, but this stuff is pure deliciousness in a bottle. Mostly because it tastes more like yoghurt – mmmm, so good. There are loads of health benefits from these drinks as well because they contain billions of live microorganisms (including Bifidobacterium) and are a source of a number of essential vitamins (including B2, B12) and minerals (including calcium, phosphorus). Here’s a cheeky photo of me drinking the delicious stuff.
I had a wonderful time, and it was awesome to try out different brands I’d never heard of!
