Best Crisp Sandwich Ever ft. Burts

Best Crisp Sandwich Ever ft. Burts
I ever since I was a child I've loved crisp sandwiches (potato chips, if you're american) and I don't know why someone first thought to put crisps into a sandwich but they were equal parts mad and genius. It obviously isn't the most health conscious thing to eat but it's great as a little treat/cheat. I always have cheese and onion or sea salt crisps on white bread but when an amazing package came from Burts I was excited to experiment and to create the best crips sandwich ever!
Best Crisp Sandwich Ever ft. Burts
For my first attempt I used the *Burts Vintage Cheddar and Spring Onion Crisps which are so moreish as well as rocket, herby soft cheese and basil on a seeded bagel. I love these crisps, they're so addictive and so nice as part of a crisp sandwich - I also think that fresh basil is perfect on any sandwich as well as rocket.

I've tried some of the other Burts crisps and they are all so yummy, especially the coconut curry crisps - definitely give them go! I'll have reviews of the others on my blog soon!

Have you tried any of the Burts crisps? What's you're favourite sandwich combination?

Yum Cha Instant Iced Tea Drinks

Yum Cha Instant Iced Tea Drinks
If you didn't know already, I'm a bit obsessed with herbal, mint or green tea so when these instant iced tea drinks arrived in the post, I was excited to give them a go as they seemed perfect for summer - well, the kind of summer we get in England!

*Yum Cha Jasmine (£3.95, 33cl) 
The drinks, to me, are a mix between iced tea and cordial as to use you just dilute the Yumcha tea into water - approx. 1 part tea to 25 parts water. The jasmine flavour is brewed using real tea and it tastes so good! I'm not a massive fan of floral tea but this is so nice when just out of the fridge. The weather in the UK has been muggy and humid but not very hot so these have been perfect on the warmer days. It's such a refreshing drink with a subtle jasmine tea flavour that I love. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Yum Cha Moroccan Mint (£3.95, 33cl) 
I LOVE mint tea so I knew I would love this one! Mint tea, in any form, is just so refreshing and perfect as a breakfast tea. I have been having this tea in my kilner jar mug with lots of ice in the morning or in the afternoon as a little pick me up. It's a close call between the two as to which one I like more but I think I'm going to have to go with the jasmine tea! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Overall, I'm really happy with both and I know I'll use them up so quickly! They are both sweet enough on their own so I don't need to add anything and they are both so quick and convenient. I love the flavours of both but the jasmine tea is my favourite. There's also a lemon flavour and elderflower flavour that both sound amazing!

Have you tried either of these? Do you like iced tea? 

Mr Lee's Noodles: Dragon Fire

I've already reviewed the Mr Lee's Shaolin Monk Vegetables flavour which you can check out if you want to know more about that flavour. I have the second vegetarian option; the *Mr Lee's Dragon Fire Mushroom Noodles which are the same as the previous flavour in that they don't contain nasty ingredients (only 100% natural ingredients) as well as gluten free noodles which is great!

I had the same minor issue with this flavour as I did with the previous - there is too much water when I fill it up to the line so I end up tipping out at least half of the water as otherwise it is a noodle broth/noodle cup a soup but if that's what you want then there's no issue at all! The flavour is so nice, I love the rice noodles and the mushrooms but it is quite spicy as the three chilli symbols on the pot would suggest! I am a wimp when it comes to spicy food so maybe I'm not the best candidate for this flavour option but it wasn't too too spicy. My dad loves spicy food and he didn't think they're that spicy so I guess I have the worlds most sensitive and wimpy tastebuds!

Overall, I love the packaging and branding - it's a super quick snack or lunch option. It's filling and tasty as the Shaolin Monk Vegetables flavour is but I probably would prefer the previous flavour just because I'm not a fan of spicy food! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
