Be your own Master Chef with these exciting JustBe tea-inspired recipes created for us by the talented team at Edinburgh School of Food & Wine. After so many emails asking for the recipes that Chris and his talented team created for me a couple of months ago, ESFW were kind enough to share them with us.
This is a snap of Chris Stewart, Head Tutor at ESFW, with a side of JustBe Loved cured salmon.

With summer approaching, our herbal teas are also delicious chilled.
