Just Bee Drinks

I recently got in touch with a little company called Just Bee and they were very kind and sent me a few of their honey water drinks to try out and review for my blog.
Just Bee are a family run business from the UK and have been making honey for generations. Their honey water contains a single drop of honey for sweetness rather than sugar and comes in three gorgeous flavours - Blueberry, Apple & Ginger, and Lemon & Green Tea.

What really drew me in about this brand is their love for bees and also their mission to keep them safe and thriving. I've been reading the Just Bee Blog to try and learn as much as I can about bees and they really do need our help. Honey bees are dying out and this is because:

  • There is a decline in pollen rich plants and flowers
  • Some pesticides used on crops are harmful to the bees
  • There has been an increase in the Varroa Destructor Mite within beehives

A simple way for us humans to help the bees would be to plant some wild flower seeds! Just Bee can provide you with some wild flower seeds if you fill out the form on their website. A great tip from Just Bee is to use your empty drinks carton as a little potting container for your seeds which is exactly what I did! My seeds are currently sat on the windowsill in my kitchen and I'm so excited to see my flowers grow and eventually, pop them out into the garden for our resident bees to enjoy.

So anyway…onto the drinks! 
Just Bee advise you drink these babies when they've been in the fridge so they're nice and cold and wow, they are delicious! I could have happily drank them one after the other but I didn't want to spoil each of the flavours so I stuck to one a day. This water is so refreshing and sweet tasting that you honestly wouldn't think that there was no added sugar. The honey hits the spot perfectly and you can taste it ever so slightly under the main flavour of each drink. There is just the right amount of water in each carton and they're also perfect for popping into your handbag as they have a screw lid and won't leak.
 If you've been reading my posts for a while you may have picked up on the fact I have a weakness for cute packaging and these guys market their products very well indeed. The bee designs are adorable and the colours are gorgeous - very eye-catching yet simple and effective. I love how the colours change to match the colour of the flavour. 

My favourite had to be the Lemon & Green Tea flavour, most likely because I adore iced tea and this tastes just like that. The flavours for all of the drinks are so subtle but refreshing with a lovely hint of sweetness from the honey drop. The blueberry flavour tasted exactly like a blueberry muffin…I know some people may not like that but I always go for blueberry over any other muffin so this was right up my street! The Apple & Ginger flavour was also delish, but Lemon & Green Tea won be over 100%.

Please feel free to head on over to Just Bee and say hi…the bees would very much appreciate all the help we can give with the wild flowers and this is another little company who deserve to be raved about :)

Thanks for reading!
