One of the craziest things about the online world is it’s ability to connect you with strangers who share the same interests as you. What’s even crazier is when it connects you with people you already know who share the same interests as you.
I’ve just read that back and it really doesn’t sound as dramatic as I want it to, but basically I was recently contacted by the lovely Emma of Pauly & Co, who I actually know from my days as a teenager. Emma and I haven’t really seen or heard from each other for the past eight or so years so when she popped up in my Instagram direct messages, I was so excited!
In the past year Emma has launched her amazing company, which she actually named after her late father, Paul. If you want to read the beautiful story of how Emma created Pauly & Co, you can here (just make sure you get yourself some tissues first).
As Pauly & Co is still relatively green, Emma asked if I would be interested in becoming her first ever brand rep, and I just had to say yes! You guys know that I’m a full-blown tea addict, and I’m always here for helping out an old friend.
Disclaimer: I was sent a selection of teas in exchange for a review on my blog. All opinions are honest and always my own.
So with all that said, here is Pauly & Co!
So far I’ve tried:
I am obsessed with this blend. It’s a strong black tea, and is most definitely my preferred brew in the morning. I love it strong with a dash of almond milk + honey and I also really enjoy it brewed black with a squeeze of lemon, especially if I need a bit more of a morning kick.
There’s a small, vegetarian cafe near our house that makes the most amazing ayurvedic chai, and Emma’s Chai Indulgence blend tastes exactly like it, if not even better. It contains chocolate, chilli and super sticky honey and is just the best remedy for that afternoon sweet tooth. Brew it on almond milk for a more earthy, warming flavour.
A sweet, subtle blend of black tea, spices and toasted coconut. Just beautiful. I love this one brewed strong with coconut milk.
A blend designed to help you get the perfect nights sleep. It contains passionflower which is also effective for anxiety a.k.a. my new best friend.
Emma’s newest blend designed to help balance out our crazy hormones! It’s that time of the month for me right now and this tea is the perfect balancing brew to sip on when all I want to do is eat fries all day and cry at cat videos.
Make sure you support the lovely Emma by buying her teas, and following her on Instagram and Facebook. Let me know in the comments below which blend of hers sounds like your cup of tea and I might do a little giveaway.
