As most of you would know, I love food and am always on the hunt for amazing food finds. This month there were three new finds that I enjoyed - Honest Organic Bottled Herbal Tea, Kohinoor's new range of curry sauces and Fentimans Sparkling Lime & Jasmine soft drink.

Honest Organic Bottled Herbal Tea

Honest one of the top-selling organic bottled tea brands in the US, recently launched in the UK. Three variants were launched this Summer are: Lemon Flavoured Herbal Tea with Honey, Orange and Mango Flavoured Herbal Tea and Pomegranate and Blueberry Flavoured Herbal Tea. Each variant contains brewed organic herbal tea (dependant on the variant), organic fruit juice concentrates and is sweetened with organic cane sugar. The drinks were refreshing and I liked the fact that organic ingredients are used. In terms of taste the Pomegranate & Blueberry and the Lemon flavoured one were the ones I liked. Although I love Mango, the Orange & Mango flavoured herbal tea was not to my liking.

Can be purchased from Co-op, select WH Smith locations, B/P Marks and Spencer connect stores and Whole Foods.

Kohinoor Cooking Sauces

While I always cook my curries from scratch, I also have a stock of Kohinoor cooking sauces for those days when I am not well or simply feeling lazy. Their Vindaloo cooking sauce is one of my favourites. Kohinoor recently launched a new range which included Old Delhi Nihari and Bombay Egg Curry cooking sauces. While the former is a lovely blend of spices, the latter is a rich Tomato and Onion sauce with Cashewnut paste & Coriander. Both were good. Their Punjabi Haryali Methi cooking sauce was also lovely. It is a green cooking sauce with Spinach, Fenugreek Powder & Garlic as the key ingredients. In terms of spiciness, it was quite mild and I had add additional green chillies.

These curry sauces can be found in the Asian food section in Tesco.

Fentimans Sparkling Lime & Jasmine

There was an immediate hit of a slight bitterness (refreshing though) on the tongue which was soon balanced by the sweetness of Lime Flower and Juniper Berries. This soft drink from Fentimans was lovely when consumed chilled. I think it would pair well with any spicy food accompaniment. It is a very refreshing, botanical soft drink. Try it!

Available in most supermarkets.
