Everyone enjoys a cup of tea but how many of us drink tea with the health benefits in mind?
Tea actullay began as a medicinal drink way back in 2737 BC in China. Legend has it that the emperor at the time (who was also a herbalist) was sitting under a tree whilst his servant was boiling water and few leaves fell into the pot. The leaves came from the Camellia sinensis tree and at that moment tea was born. It wasn't until the 1650's that the UK's obsession for tea began with the East India Company who imported goods from ouside Europe. Today there are many differnt types of plants that make teas and infusions of all kinds. Here is a list of the top 5 healthy teas available from UK Business Supplies.

Mastering a few fundametals to making good coffee can result in a much better flavour. The temperature of your water, brewing duration and the quality of the coffee itself can result in a much better brew. Here we look at making great coffee using beans. There are of course lots of choices and the right choice of beans is personal to you.
1. The most obvious – buy great quality coffee beans. Whole beans are the best. Never re-use beans after brewing.
2. Make sure you grind your coffee just before brewing.
3. Keep your coffee stored in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight. It’s not a good idea to freeze the beans, unless you are intending to use them after two weeks.
4. Use a good amount of coffee, and the right proportion of coffee to water. One to two tablespoons of ground coffee for every six ounces of water, or to be more specific for every 1 gram of coffee, use 17 grams of water.
5. Find the right grind size for your coffee beans and aim for a uniform grind. If your coffee is to bitter it may be that the grind is too fine.
6. Don’t use boiling water as this can sour the coffee. Control the temperature of your water. Somewhere between 195 and 202 degrees is adequate.
7. Use quality tools. Buy the right bean grinder and coffee maker. Make a good investment in your coffee drinking future and the results will be a great taste.
The origins of soft drinks actually lie in the medieval Middle East when a variety of flavoured soft drinks known as Sharbat were sweetened with sugar honey and syrup. The fizz was invented by an Englishman, Joseph Priestly, who discovered a way of infusing carbon dioxide to make carbonated water at his brewery in Leeds. Soft Drinks have come a long way, and the variety of flavours available today is huge.
For over 70 years, soft drinks have been available in cans, in fact the first soft drinks can was actually launched way back in 1938. Most canned drinks are made of aluminium although some or made of tin plated steel. Soft drinks in cans usually contain carbonated water, a sweetener and natural or artificial flavouring.

Planning an Easter Egg Hunt? We have a great selection of chocolate eggs available, but why are Easter eggs so important at this time of year?
Originally the egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth, Christians later developed that notion and the Easter egg then became a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus with the egg symbol being representative of the tomb from which Christ arose. Originally real hard boiled eggs that were painted and dyed were used in Easter egg hunts. Now the more recent foil wrapped egg shaped chocolates are the most popular for an egg hunt. Chocolate eggs are hidden indoors or outdoors and children then collect the eggs in a basket, and don’t forget that no Easter celebration is complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny!

According to recent research approximately 86% of the UK’s full-time workers drink tea and coffee every day, for many people a regular caffeine boost helps increase endurance and performance throughout the working day, which can be a big plus for employers, and due to the recent rise of café culture and big brand high street coffee outlets many employees are more aware and will take time out to indulge and spend time in coffee shops. However, some employers are yet to recognise the benefits to a business of providing basic catering essentials to their workforce within their own premises.
According to more research, 75% of staff buy their coffee and tea out of office, resulting in an estimated 40 hours of lost office time per employee each year. Recent studies have shown that employees consider access to high quality coffee is an important workplace perk, proving that the company cares about its workers.

Another year over and now it’s time to clean up after Christmas and New Year. With discarded toys and an excess of wrapping paper and food scraps this task can be daunting, but with the right products and a planned routine you can get your home tidy efficiently and quickly.
If you have help available then it’s an opportunity to initially clear the floor and surfaces, teamwork will get the job done much quicker, the kids are still off school remember so you can assign tasks to everyone. Identify homes for new toys and put the discarded wrapping paper in the recycling then see what needs a good scrub. If you investigate the whole house you can prepare in advance. Make a list, put a date in the diary and identify which products you need. Next it’s the deep clean. Instead of working on one room at a time perhaps focus on certain areas, start with surfaces first then the walls and floors, that way you are using one product at a time so the job will be finished a lot quicker. We suggest working on the most time consuming tasks first so that the chores you hate the most are out of the way. Working towards the easier and quickest tasks last will make the process much less of a burden.

Coffee has been making mornings more of a revalation for people as long ago as the 16th century. Since that time the humble coffee bean has conceived a wide range of different coffee drinks. From the americano, cappuccino, macchiato, espresso and latte through to a regular filter coffee, there is a machine to suit every taste. So you have to ask yourself - how do you like your coffee? And also when do you drink it? Are you interested in flavour over speed of use? To help you in your search we have provided a breakdown of the different types and a list of some of the best coffee machines.

The story of Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa starts in Parma, the gastronomic capital of Italy, with the Costa family. When they migrated to England in the 1960’s, the family brought their miscela (blend) with them, going on to found a coffee empire now known throughout the world. Marco Costa, (the son of co-founder Sergio), is a successful entrepreneur and restauranteur in his own right. Understandably, coffee is in his blood, and Marco is dedicated to conserving the original family miscela, (Perla Bianca), which he uses in his own restaurants and has sold to a select group of foodservice customers. As demand for Perla Bianca increased, Marco searched for a roastery which could deliver the quality, quantity and consistency he required to meet demand whilst staying true to the heritage of the original blend. Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa is now produced in a state of the art, carbon-neutral UK facility.
Marco told us: ‘I am delighted that Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa will now be more widely available. It is very exciting to be able to offer a true Italian Heritage Blend, whilst minimising environmental impact by reducing Food Miles and Carbon Emissions’.
Caffe Torelli by Marco Costa is available in three different blends:
Perla Bianca: The original Costa family blend, with its classic Italian flavour profile, which kickstarted a coffee story now known throughout the whole world.
Perla Antica: Certified Organic and Fair Trade, this gorgeous chocolatey blend was developed to reflect Marco Costa’s commitment to the environment.
Decaffeinated: A high quality Italian roast blend, gently decaffeinated using the Swiss Water method.
Perla Beans are available packed in high quality, sturdy cases of 6x1kg.
A selection of beans and ground products are available in beautifully crafted resealable tins, packed in cases of 6x250g.
