Taj Bistro, Abuja.

Hello August! Welcome to my very first blog post for the month of August. I’m super excited for this one because I got to try out a restaurant that has been on my list for a while now and also catch up with a friend. I mean, talk about good vibes August am I right! Before we get down to all the juicy details, I just wanna wish all my readers a blissful new month. It has been 7 months of consistency and I’m super proud of myself and thankful to everyone who reads, likes or supports my blog in one way or the other.

Now to the Jist of the day, Taj Bistro! Taj Bistro is an open kitchen restaurant located at NO 1 Atabara street, off Kampala street, Wuse 2, Abuja. It is a breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and bar spot that is open from 9am – 12pm daily.

The restaurant is one that has been open for quite some time now but I have always avoided it because of the amount bad reviews I’ve heard about the place. I finally decided to check it out myself because I a few engagements there and here’s all you need to know about Taj! (The good and the bad…lol)

Ambience

It is beautiful! Honestly, the restaurant space is really beautiful. From the entrance, it gives quite the impression to it’s guests. There’s a beautiful neon sign that says ‘Taj’ decorated with flowers which makes it quite an attractive picture spot. The restaurant is quite spacious and accommodating. It features a bar, shisha lounge and an open kitchen. This means that you get a direct view of the restaurant kitchen while you dine. The open kitchen is one of the largest in an Abuja restaurant. It is really cool! The restaurant can take up to 25-30 guests at once. The also have provision for special events reservations.

Pictures at Taj!

The restaurant is definitely one of the top instagrammable spots in Abuja. I had to get a couple of pictures of my friend even though he was extremely shy.


Shisha Lounge

The shisha lounge is a secluded area in the restaurant for customers who would like to chill and have a smoke. It is beautifully decorated and has large see through windows which give you a view of the city. The windows can be opened for fresh air while the customers smoke and can also be closed and transformed into a cozy indoor space. The shisha lounge decor is so beautiful and can totally pass as a cute little cafe on its own.

The Menu

The restaurant menu offers a lot of food and drink options which are mostly pricey. I love that the restaurant menu is descriptive so it gives the customer an insight on what they are about to order. The budget for this restaurant is about N10 – N15,000 per person.

Now here’s what I did not like. Due to inflation there have been some price changes which affected the pricing of the menu and the management deemed it fit to effect the changes with a correction fluid pen rather than just print a new menu. This was highly disappointing, most especially coming from a supposed fine/standard restaurant.

Food & Drinks

My friend and I had some pretty different reservations about what we wanted to eat. I opted for one of the breakfast options and he got something from the main menu. We ended up having Nutella and banana French toast, tea selection flavour box, Thai special chicken fried rice & Fresh orange juice.

Nutella Banana french Toast – N5,500

It was a hit! I enjoyed every bit of it. The Nutella and banana French toast was plated beautifully and in a very minimalistic way which I loved. I had initially expected the French toast to be served plain with a side of Nutella that I can drizzle on the toast but it came differently. Each toast was spread with Nutella and it was great. The French toast was soft, warm and not soggy. It also had a nice cinnamon flavour added to it which made it bang. Although I loved the French toast, I couldn’t help but feel it was a little bit over priced.

Thai special chicken/shrimp fried rice – N6,000

the fired rice was very colourful and packed with many delicious ingredients. It was served in acute bowl. and was quite appealing to the eyes. My first initial thought was, where’s the rest of it? This is because the portion was really small for N6,000 and a main dish. The rice was tasty, the ingredients were rightly apportioned to the rice so we enjoyed it. The rice had a sweet and savoury taste because of the pineapple added to it. The rice portion was barely satisfying so I’d advice that if you’re ordering it, you pair it with something else to get a satisfying meal.

Shortly after we had the Thai special fried rice (with chicken), my sister ordered the same thing and her own dish was not very tasteful. It was partly burnt and the rice was very dry. This left some very questionable thoughts in my head as to the meal consistency of the restaurant.


Tea selection Flavor box – N2,000

After selecting this option from the menu, I was given a range of quality tea boxes to make a choice from. I chose the cinnamon and apple tea box and it was very nice. It was served in a beautiful tea pot set with honey (my choice) for taste. You can have your tea with sugar or sweetener if you’d like. I did not regret my selection at all, I very much loved the tea and the cute aesthetic that came with it.

Orange Juice – N2,700

The orange juice was freshly squeezed and served in a nice, adequate portion.

TOTAL BILL – NGN18,225 (incl 7.5% VAT & 5% service charge)

General Review

I had swell time at Taj! I enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the space while catching up with my friend. The service was great and I mostly enjoyed the food. However, I feel like there should be a few tweaks here and there to make the restaurant better than it is. The restaurant really doesn’t have a lot of street credibility when it comes to good food and its not a very good thing. I’d say my general experience was fair and I may visit again to see if they have gotten better.

If you have ever dined at Taj Bistro, do not hesitate to share your experience with me. I’m very much interested in all the details and I’m sure other readers will be too.

Hugs and Mugs cafe/restaurant Abuja.

Hello dearest reader, Welcome to today’s episode of Abuja’s hidden gems. Today is definitely your lucky day because you get to experience something different & something new!

Hugs and mugs cafe/restaurant is an incredible hidden gem i recently found in the city. Interestingly, it is in plain sight but no one ever really notices it. It is located at 134 Adetokunbo Ademola crescent wuse two Abuja, Nigeria which is in the same compound with Bakan Gizo supermarket which I’m sure you may have cone across a few times.

The hugs and mugs space is unique, interesting and cozy. Now i’m sure you may be wondering, what’s the food like? what’s the menu like? Well, that’s why you’re here. Scroll down to find out!

Ambience

The restaurant space is quite small but in no way distasteful. The space was effectively utilized and beautifully decorated so you would not really feel like the space is that small.
It is one of the most beautifully decorated small spaces i’ve seen recently. The colors used in the decor are quite earthy and nice. The restaurant is not very popular, as such it was not full when we went so we had a peaceful and quiet dinning experience.

The restaurant is neat and the staff are warm and welcoming. I Loved how there were so many mirrors incorporated in the decor. The restaurant has different sitting areas that can fit about 20 people and a cute little restroom for Convinence.

Picture Perfect!

The restaurant space is super cute and we were lucky enough to be there at golden hour so my sister and i took advantage of that to take some awesome pictures.
The pictures came out really great so i had to attach it to this post.


The menu

The restaurant menu really took me by surprise. I initially expected it to be a few pastries and food options but they had way more than that!

The menu featured breakfast options, starters, main dishes, desserts, pastries, cocktails, mocktails, fresh juices, coffee, wines and so much more. The best part of it was that everything was super affordable.

It basically gives you a refined dining experience at good rates. I love it!

Food & drinks

The menu offered quite a lot of options so it took a while for us to decide because we both didn’t want heavy meals. After a long time deciding, we finally settled for the HNM express noodles and eggs, cappuccino, grilled turkey with a side of mashed potatoes and a glass of fresh orange juice.

HNM express noodles and eggs- N2,500

The Express noodles was basically indomie or so we thought. Well i mean it was still indomie but with an international passport. We all know indomie is a very simple but unique meal, in the sense that everyone makes it differently. Its quite hard for someone to make noodles for you that you will enjoy because everyone has their own noodle style. This was different. From the plating i knew this had to be something good!

The noodles were freshly made and served steaming hot. It was stir fried with different vegetables and sausages. Believe me when i say it was made to perfection! It was very rich, tasty and a bit moist just how i like it.

Cappuccino – N1,500

Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee? I know i do! The cappuccino was made fresh in our presence so we got to witness the magic happen. I mean, you can never get enough of watching a beautiful cup of coffee being made.

The coffee was great! It came with some cubes of sugar incase you needed some additional sweetness and they also drizzled some caramel on it after it was ready. It was definitely worth the price.

Grilled turkey & Mashed potatoes – N4,600

The grilled turkey was fresh off the grill and it was covered in a unique & delicious sauce. The turkey was juicy and tender i couldn’t stop myself after the first bite. I devoured it to the last bit.
I opted to pair it with mashed potatoes because it has been a while i had it and it turned out to be the best decision ever!
The mashed potato dish was soft, creamy and had a luscious taste to it. It was Wonderful!

Once again, the plating was totally beautiful.

Fresh orange juice – N1,800

Fresh orange juice, but make it fancy! Thats exactly what i was served. I loved that the juice was freshly squeezed, so it had a little zesty taste to it. The orange juice also had some pulp it which was nice and made it evident that it wasn’t some packed juice turned into a cup. The juice portion was great for the price and it was served so beautifully i almost didn’t want to sip it.

TOTAL BILL – NGN11,400 (no VAT & service charge included)

General Review

Hugs and Mugs restaurant/cafe is mostly definitely a spot worthy of being checked out. It is definitely in my top 10 list of cute small places with good food and awesome service.

The ambience is great, their service is impeccable and their meals will leave you wanting more. I had a splendid experience and i look forward to visiting again real soon.

If you are just finding out about hugs and Mugs from this post kindly like, share and comment.

Frosty Pops/Boba Pops, Abuja.

Hi guys! Today I come bearing sugar, spice and everything nice. I’m sure by now you have already seen or head about frosty pops the one and only popsicle/boba shop in Abuja. It’s basically like an ice cream shop but for popsicles.

Frosty pops launched sometime during the month of ramadan at no 1 Konoko crescent Wuse 2, Abuja. I have been dying to go there since they opened and I finally did. My experience was as colourful as the place looks.

Ambience

The ambience is absolutely colourful! The space fits perfectly for its purpose. It is vibrant, colourful and very fun. They have a few sitting areas for a quick Popsicle but nothing too serious or long term. They have a restroom for Convinence which i’m yet to check out yet but definitely will in my next visit.

Popsicles

Ou la la! they have all shades of popsicles, ranging from sweet tooth to vegan. The most interesting fact about all the popsicles is that they are all a 100% vegan and natural. The popsicles are also hand crafted, which is so cool.

The popsicles range from N1,500 to N1,800. They also have many topping options at different rates. This means you can decorate your popsicle to your satisfaction.

So far I have tried the Nutella, chocolate, strawberry(fruit), cotton candy Oreo & creamy strawberry. They all taste amazing! I must admit that the popsicles are quite addictive because you just can’t stop yourself from wanting more.

It is definitely worth a try!

Boba Pops

Unfortunately, I am still yet to try out the boba tea at frosty pops because they are always sold out anytime I go for it. I look forward to trying it out soon and updating this post.

Till then . . . xoxo

Papi grill – Restaurant, Coffee & Patisserie

I’m back again with another new spot in Abuja! I know, i know, you all have been dying to read about a new spot and that’s why i’m here to give you just that!
I found out about Papi grill through an instagram Ad and immediately i knew i had to visit and share all the juicy details. Papi grill is located at 45, Libreville Crescent Wuse, Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria. On the outlook, it appears like a small place but it’s actually quite spacious on the inside. I’m really excited for you to read all about it because i absolutely loved it. Scroll to read more.

Ambience

The cafe ambience is really unique. On the outside it gives Paris cafe vibes. It was decorated with beautiful rustic chairs and tables. The outdoor space is beautifully covered with canopies that keep you away from the sun during the day. There are also some lovely flowers which really add to the beauty of the space. The outdoor space gives you a view of the streets while you dine.
The indoor space is really something else. The black/brown wooden and leather interior combination is really a banger. At first you are met with a small space with bar stools and tables. When you proceed inside, there’s a bigger and more spacious room. There is also a bit of an enclosed private space that is just as pretty as the other spaces. The restaurant space is quiet and peaceful. The indoor space has large windows which gives you a view of the streets and compliments the vibe of the restaurant.

Menu

The cafe menu features quite a lot of food and drink options. I loved that they had quite the variety of starters, main dishes and desserts. They also have nice breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The menu pricing is in between affordable and expensive, depending on what you are going for.

Food & Drinks

For my food and drink, i wanted something tasty and spicy so i ordered the Penne in spicy alfredo sauce with chicken and veggies with a glass of orange juice. My sister ordered Turkish coffee with white chocolate banana bread.

Turkish coffee – NGN1,500

Before now, my sister and i had never tried Turkish coffee before so we were quite excited to try it. It was served in a cute tea pot with an option of extra honey and sugar. It was served hot & fresh so we really enjoyed it. The coffee was already mixed with milk and it tasted a bit spicy like it had some herbs or ingredients mixed in it. The coffee was unfiltered, which is apparently the way Turkish coffee is meant to be so you have to give it a good stir before drinking. I was glad they actually made a nice Turkish coffee and not a shabby mediocre attempt at one.

White chocolate Banana bread – NGN1,500

The serving of the white chocolate banana bread was actually beyond my expectation. It was beautifully served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a bit of a honey drizzle. The pairing of the banana bread with vanilla ice cream was great. The banana bread wasn’t too sweet, so the additional honey drizzle didn’t make it unbearable to eat. The banana bread itself was a bit dry and lacking moisture.

Penne in spicy alfredo sauce with chicken and veggies – NGN5,300

The penne pasta was a whole dish and more! When i saw it on the menu i thought the chicken and veggies would all be mixed together in the making of the pasta. I was surprised to see each component finely made on its own. The penne was indeed spicy, they did not lie about that! I have a very low tolerance for spicy food so it was a bit too spicy for me. Although i won’t lie, i cleared my plate because the meal was too good to not eat. I was prepared to face the consequences. The vegetables were soft and nicely cut. The vegetables had a little zesty flavor to it. The chicken on the other hand was a bit spicy as well. It was tender and tasty. All in all it was a great and very satisfying dish.

Orange juice – NGN1,500

First off, the orange juice was quite affordable so i expected the usual trend of restaurants just serving a glass of 5 alive orange juice instead of freshly squeezed orange juice. To my surprise it was actually fresh orange juice. I mean if it wasn’t, then they did a very good job of getting a nice packaged orange juice because it was really good and it tasted fresh and refreshing.

General Review

The cafe/restaurant service is really really great. It’s always very obvious when you enter a newly opened restaurant and you know they are READY! It’s not just some tight budget, unexperienced, poorly planned/managed place. Their ambience, service and food is awesome and they are most definitely off to a great start and it is really commendable. The one thing i would say doesn’t really settle well with me is the name of the place. Now the cafe is named ’Papi grill’ which automatically gives off the notion of an outdoor or grill kind of place but instead it’s not really like that. It is also a cafe/patisserie but has limited options of pastries on the menu. Kindly drop a comment or share your experience/thoughts if you visit papi grill.

The Milk shop & Agege Burger, Abuja.

In my last blog post, i mentioned ‘sizzling hot new spot’. Well, this spot is one! The milk shop & Agege burger are two incredible food vendors that have existed for quite some time now. Agege Burger was an online food vendor that Launched back in 2020. The milk shop however existed before 2020 and they had a restaurant/cafe at Kampala street.
I noticed the collaborative space/efforts sometime in January and i got super excited because i already knew that it was going to be awesome.

The cafe/restaurant is located at Left annex, Maitama amuesement park Abuja, Nigeria. It is right next to Mambaah cafe. Although they are still running a soft opening, i just had to check it out. I tried out food and drinks from the milk shop, but i wasn’t able to try anything from agege burger. I look forward to doing so next time. Here’s a full review of the shared space and the food and drinks at the milk shop.

Ambience

BLOWN!!!! i was absolutely blown away by the ambience. It looks like something straight out of a movie. On approaching the space, it looks very surreal. It is a small and cozy place made of see through glass which is covered by a shed naturally created by trees. Walking into the cafe there’s a cement walkway amidst the gravel stones which cover the floor. It is beautifully decorated with cane and wood furniture. The most incredibly creative thing about the space is the ceiling. it is not your regular PVC ceiling, rather it is made up of creative items carefully utilized to give an artistic look to the space. The space is calm, very serene and has a relaxing vibe to it. It is a great space to sit, have a cup of coffee or 5, get some work done, read a book, a tea party or book club meeting.
I am absolutely in love with this space. The combination of contemporary, modern, artistic and outdoor designs is definitely a hit.

Food

The milk shop is still running a soft opening so there was no physical menu available. The had a little display board with a few pastries listed and some on display. I already knew about the famous chicken pot pie so i went ahead to order it and a brownie that was on display.

Smoked Chicken pot pie – NGN3,500

The smoked chicken pot pie took about 40 minutes to get ready but it was really worth the wait. It was served with a slice of diagonally cut toast bread. When the pot pie was served, it was really smoking! It had a crisp crust which reveals a hot savory chicken filling. After breaking through the crust i literally had to wait for it to cool down a bit before eating. It was very tasty and satisfying. It tasted like fresh out of the oven chicken pie but in a pot…lol. The pie filling was not too spicy. It was rich and very creamy. The bread paired with the pie was just perfect and it was all round an amazing dish. I’m so glad to know that they have been able to maintain their pot pie standards all these years.

Brownie with homemade ice cream – NGN2,200

After the tasty smoked chicken pot pie, i just had to have something sweet to balance it out. The brownies costs NGN1,000 and an additional N1,200 is added when served with homemade ice cream and syrup. At first i honestly thought the brownie was way too small for N1,000 but after my first bite i realized why it cost so much. As small as it was, it was hard to finish it all because it was so satisfying. It was extremely fudgy! Literally the most fudgy brownies i have ever had. I’m not so sure i liked the homemade ice cream though. It was really icy or sweet, it tasted like whipped cream.

Drinks

There wasn’t really and drink menu available, we just asked for what the had and they told us ice tea and caramel frappe.

Caramel Frappe – NGN2,500

The caramel frappe was beautifully served. Although it was beautiful, it didn’t really hit the right notes. It was very sweet and i could barely taste the caramel or coffee in it. It was an ok drink but it could have definitely been better.

Earl grey iced tea – NGN1,500

The earl grey ice tea was nice and flavorful. At some point it got too sweet but i definitely enjoyed it. The lemon slices gave it a little edge that i loved. I kept thinking about the taste so much after i left, that it inspired me to make some at home.

General review

The milk shop & Agege burger cafe is definitely a great stop to grab a juicy bite. The space is incredibly unique and from what i’ve had so far, they have quality food. However, i do not think they are ready for dine in just yet. There is no physical menu, no readily available staff to attend to customers and so much more. For now, i think it is best for grab and go, quick eats, and to while away time. (This is subject to time of this review though, there might be some changes soon). Kindly drop your comments or tag me if you do visit The milk shop & Agege burger.

Pink bear Ng | Your favourite little cafe

I had the cutest little solo date at the prettiest little cafe last week and it was awesome!

Pink bear cafe is a cute new cafe located at shop 12, 141 adetokunbo ademola crescent wuse 2 Abuja, Nigeria. I noticed it a while back when i was shopping at the plaza. I knew something was going on there but i didn’t know what it was, until boom! one day the pink walls caught my attention.

Here’s a review of my pink bear experience ;

Ambience

The cafe is so cute and cozy. It has large windows which really adds to the lighting of the place, the cafe is mostly pink so its hard to not admire every inch of it. My favourite part was the pink little spot by the window and the coffee tree mural on the wall. I like that particular spot because it gives you a view of the window and its quite secluded and comfortable. The place is quite small and can barely sit up to 30 people at once so its best for take outs, lunch breaks or a quick bite.

The menu

For a small cafe their menu is quite big. Normally most cafes this size sell only pastries, but pink bear is different. The have a variety of options on their menu. They have salads, pasta, pancakes, pastries, sandwiches and more. For their drinks, they have water, different types of teas, including bubble tea. Interestingly, they also have alcoholic bubble tea.

The food

I didn’t try out any savory dishes, i just went straight to the pastries pastries displayed because it just felt right at the time.
I ordered a cinnamon roll, red velvet cake slice and a chocolate cake slice.

Red velvet cake slice – N1,700

Typically, i’m not a huge fan of red velvet cake. Its really nice and i enjoy it, but its not always my first pick. Something about this cake slice was calling my name and i had to get it. Well, it turned out to be one of the best red velvet cake slices I’ve ever had! It was so creamy, moist and rich. I honestly never knew red velvet cake could taste so good. I loved it.

Chocolate cake slice – N1,500

Chocolate flavored anything would always have a space in my heart. This was no different. It was very fudgey, moist and really really chocolatey. The best part about it was that the chocolate cake was that it was really yummy and it didn’t have a lot of sugar in it.

Cinamon roll – N900

The cinnamon roll was actually the first thing to catch my attention. It was quite small, but really really nice. Definitely one of the best i’ve had.

Drink

I wasn’t really in the mood for bubble tea so i decided to try the caramel milk tea.

Caramel milk tea (small – N2,400)

The caramel milk tea was too sweet. It wasn’t really creamy and i could barely taste the caramel in it. I didn’t really enjoy it honestly.

Total bill – NGN6,500

General review

The pink bear cafe is really cute and cozy. One of the distinct things i loved about it was that they had some cute brand merch for sale. I haven’t tired out a lot of the things on their menu yet, but from what i have, i can say they have really good pastries. I would definitely be visiting soon to try out more items on their menu.

Tea charme – My first bubble tea experience

For those who do not already know, bubble tea is a special kind of tea/drink that has its origin from Taiwan. It is made with boba balls, which can also be called tapioca balls. The boba balls are kind of soft and chewy in nature. Now as a Nigerian local who has never been to Taiwan before, I obviously have never tried it before. However, I’ve had tapioca a number of times before. I have always fancied bubble tea but I never really knew where to get it because I obviously wasn’t going to Taiwan anytime soon and Nigeria is nowhere near Taiwan. Luckily for me there have been some improvements with different food franchises coming to Abuja. Restaurants now are more focused on bringing in something new/foreign to customers so there’s a lot of room to try out different cuisines other than what we are already used to here.

I have actually noticed a growing number of bubble tea vendors here in Abuja (which I’ll definitely be trying out soon). I decided to try tea charme first because I just kinda felt like it would be coming from an authentic Taiwanese source and not just someone trying to Mimic something they’ve had. Although it might actually be the case but I really don’t think so.

Tea charme is a cute little take out tea shop that not only sells bubble tea but also coffee, drinks and ice cream. As a take out spot, there is obviously no sitting area. I would have honestly preferred it if they had like a little space where you can sit and wait for your order most especially because of the sun. Your only options if you have to wait are; sitting in your car, standing for as long as it takes for your order to get ready or climbing up to the charme restaurant upstairs which in my opinion is not very wise because there’s no means of knowing if your order is ready.

Their menu is quite big for a small take out shop, but I love the fact that it gives you a variety of options including non-dairy options.

What does bubble tea taste like?

Well, to answer the question we’ve all been dying to know, It tastes like a nice milkshake with boba in it. I ordered the medium sized chocolate dirty tea (because when I’m not sure I go with the safest, most delicious option – CHOCOLATE!) It cost NGN2,300. I initially wanted to order the milk bubble it but someone said it wasn’t rich and creamy enough.

The chocolate dirty tea was honestly delicious! I wanted to finish it in a single sip. It was very rich and creamy. I got carried away sipping and forgot about the boba at the bottom of the cup so when a single bubble slipped into my mouth I almost screamed that there was a giant bug in my tea but the it was chewy so I immediately remembered what I was having. The boba at the bottom if the tea were not too soft and sticky neither were they hard to chew. I must add though, that I do not think the boba adds any special kind of flavour to the tea. I think its just there for chewy purposes.

I definitely loved it, and I can’t wait to try out more flavours and most probably more vendors too.

TEA TIME WITH RUMI LEAVES

Before I dive in, let me just say I am an absolute tea lover. My favourite tea flavours are strawberry and lemon but I think I am adding a new flavour to my list of faves so grab yourself a cup of tea and join me as I try out some new tea flavours!

Earlier last week I got a Dm on instagram from a new tea brand asking if I do reviews for teas and I was like woah! I absolutely do! so we discussed some details and I received a package on Monday evening. Before the package arrived I was anxious all day. My anxiety was not only because I love tea and trying out things but also because it was my first ever PR package. I mean, I knew I was doing ok with my entire food blog thingy but I didn’t actually realise I was PR package worthy.

The package arrived in cute little brown paper bag which had orange silk cloth handles which I found totally adorable. It was the first time I was seeing a paper bag with such handles. I received a total of three flavours – Hibiscus, herbal tea and exotic bloom.

The hibiscus and herbal tea came in tea bags, while the exotic bloom was a loose tea blend.

Rumi leaves hibiscus tea

I’m starting off with this tea flavour because it turned out to be my favourite out of the three flavours I received. Prior to this package I had never tried hibiscus tea before, in fact I didn’t even know it existed. I have had different tastes of countless hibiscus drinks and they were truly great but I never thought of what it would be like as a tea. The first and most beautiful thing about this tea flavour is the colour. It has a beautiful purple/burgundy colour when you brew it. one of the reasons I love the colour is that you can tell its natural, unlike most teas that are usually artificially coloured.

The tea wasn’t just plain hibiscus, it had a hint of mint and lemon grass. I tried it with sugar at first and it was great but the next morning I mixed it with honey and it tasted even better! The hibiscus tea is not only delicious but it also comes with some health benefits like lowering blood pressure, boosting kidney and liver functions and so much more. This makes it an organic, natural, delicious and healthy tea blend. A pack of the tea comes with fifteen tea bags and it costs just NGN1,000.

Rumi leaves Herbal tea

Like most herbal tea’s the rumi leaves herbal tea was a green tea. However, it had some other flavours infused in it like cinnamon, ginger and mint. Unlike the hibiscus tea, the herbal tea didn’t really have a popping colour, it looked like normal green tea.

The other flavours infused into the tea weren’t really significant in the taste. The most significant taste was the green tea, I could barely taste the ginger in it but i did sense a taste of cinnamon in it. When I tried it with sugar I didn’t really enjoy it but I absolutely loved it with honey. I also tried it out with a squeeze of fresh lemon and honey and it was also great. It helps in boosting your immune system which is a great necessity at this time, it promotes weight loss and relieves indigestion. Just like the hibiscus tea, the herbal tea comes in a pack of 15 tea bags and it costs NGN1,000.

Rumi leaves exotic bloom

Exotic bloom is a different kind of tea. It doest come in tea bags like the other two flavours, its a loose tea blend which automatically means it is brewed differently. To brew this tea, you will need an infuser to avoid spilling loose tea leaves into the tea cup. It looks like the green tea but its much darker in colour. The most significant taste the tea has is mint. The tea is surely exotic! it contained a burst of flavours ranging from mint, green tea, a tiny hint of hibiscus and many more flavours that I can’t really place till this moment but they all go together really well and give you a wonderful and delicious taste. It costs NGN1,000 for a bag.

Side note

All in all I’d like to say that rumi leaves has a unique and quality blend of tea flavours. You can tell that each tea flavour is carefully made with natural and organic ingredients that not only taste great but also smell amazing, it improves your health and is super affordable. I totally recommend it for anyone out there who is a tea lover.

If you have any suggestions of new tea’s or food that you want me to review or you’d also like to send me a package for an honest review, kinldy check for my contact information on my blog page ‘book me’ and let me know.
