Jardin Bio Hybiscus Lemon Tea

After trying the infusion of red vine (vitis vinifera) with natural aroma of red fruits, from biological agriculture, I've decided to try the hybiscus lemon tea from Jardin Bio (part of the Léa Nature group).
This green tea from bio agriculture contains hybiscus flower, lemon peel and lemon natural aroma and is picked at the Venture plantation, situated 1000 meters height in the region of Dimbula, Sri Lanka.
With a light pinkish colour, it's a tea with a light body and suitable to drink on its on, or with a quick snack.
The lemon notes are pleasant and although I haven't gone into a garden before to eat hybiscus flowers, I will give this tea a positive note.
Carrying the Max Havelaar logo, this tea is part of the line of Jardin Bio Équitable, respecting the environment and contributing to fairtrade commerce and solidarity.
In the case of the Ventura plantation, exists a model of social development that includes kindergartens, professional improvement and house construction.

Cadbury Crunchie Chocolate Bar

Originally launched in 1929 by J. S. Fry & Sons (merged with Cadbury in 1919) the Cadbury Crunchie is a milk chocolate bar with a honeycombed centre.
Reminding of a honeycomb with very tiny holes, the centre feels hard and shattering when bit, featuring an attractive golden tone and its taste is of a subtle mix of honey and burnt sugar, with a slightly salty note.
Available in several sizes, being the most common the 40g single-serve bar, Cadbury Crunchie has known some limited editions.
The fact of resisting all these years is a good reason to give it a try.

Whitman's Chocolates 1.75 oz Sampler

Only recently I tried the Whitman's chocolates and my reaction was quite positive.
I was given a 1.75 oz sampler box with four chocolates.
Although I cannot speak about the other boxes with more pieces, I would suppose that quality will be on the same level.
I'm not going to say that these chocolates are the best that I ever had, but in terms of price/quality they stand quite high.
Of course that to know if you agree with me or not, you'll have to go and buy them.
Now part of Russel Stover, Whitman's was established in 1842 by Stephen F. Whitman at the age of 19, in Philadelphia.
