Time for Tea: Yunomi – Hibiscus Tea

Thanks to Yunomi for the free samples! Packaging & Scent: The tea bags are well crafted and are 1/4 full with finely chopped petals. There’s a strong, overpowering scent that’s met with sweet and tangy flavours. Taste: The Hibiscus Tea has a thick bodied flavour & colour, similar to red wine. You’re met with an initial sweet taste followed by a slightly overpowering bitter and dry flavour.  This delayed sourness did spoil our enjoyment of the tea but this is all down to personal taste and preference. The main medical benefit of Hibiscus Tea is its ability to lower blood...

I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels if the world was about to end, ‘Alpacalypse’ style would be the way to go! Amy Crabtree’s fantastic and super vibrant designs have been lighting up popular events since 2011. We go behind the scenes and discuss the leap of Amy’s work; from  a web based gallery to an online store bursting with creativity! “I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, and at first Cakes with Faces was just an online gallery of my artwork, which is inspired by Japanese kawaii design – and food!

Learn Hiragana & Katakana with Dr Moku!

Kakkoii Club continues it’s journey with the Japanese language! Memrise is a fantastic e-learning tool but we did struggle with getting our heads around Hiragana & Katakana! Without becoming disheartened, we began to search for an additional tool and luckily we didn’t have to look too far! We located Dr Moku on the Appstore (also available on Android) and there’s even a ‘lite’ version you can download for free to get you started! (We recommend downloading the bundle of Dr Moku’s Hiragana & Katakana for £5.99, as this would cost almost £8 if bought separately.) The app itself is very user...
