Next Senses Bath Tea Collection review

It’s not a secret that everyone likes to relax in a bath every now and then. There are so many shops out there offering a wide range of products to make this experience even more magical and relaxing. We’ve got bath bombs, bath fizzers, bubble baths, oils… Now even bath teas. I can hear you all gasp in shock and excitement. Yes, you hear me right. Next created a new range of products in which they included an incredible set of nothing else but bath teas. called Next Senses Bath Tea Collection. How amazing is that? It was a no-brainer to me and as soon as I spotted it, it was already in my basket.

I don’t know about you, but personally, I have never heard about bath teas before. I had so many questions in my head when I was picking this product up, like ‘Will the smell be too overpowering?’, ‘Will it actually work?’. I’m a curious cat though, so I couldn’t not try it out and, obviously, write a review summing up my thoughts.

The contents

The front of the box is see-through which makes it easy to see what’s actually inside it. You get 9 packets with their names written on the front. At first, I thought it meant they were all different types and served for different purposes. After a more thorough research, I learnt that in fact there are only 3 different bath tea types:

  • Vitality/Reviving/Revive bags contain a mixture of bath salts with the scents of green tea and pear
  • Uplifting/Cocoon/Calming bags are a mix of fresh scents of cucumber, kale, citrus fruits and cedarwood
  • Serenity/Calming/Relax bags include lavender and chamomile fragrances mixed with vanilla

Despite their different names and ingredients, they share the same aim – to help you relax and rewind sorrounded by the amazing scents and warm water.

The experience

The first bag I used was Serenity. After taking out of the box, I found out that the bags are quite heavy. When you take the contents out of the bag, you end up with an actual teabag, which I found extremely exciting. It looks just like a slightly bigger version of your typical teabag, with a string attached to it. Thanks to that, you can actually dunk it in your bath and pretend you’re making a massive pot of tea. It entertained me for a good couple of minutes (I know, I’m still a child at heart).

The teabag contains a mixture of bath salts with the certain ingredients to create the scents mentioned above. It doesn’t change the colour of the water, but it doesn’t contain any colouring so I wasn’t surprised. The scent is very light and fresh. The insides of the teabag dissolved very quickly. Next advise you to leave the bag in for as long as you sit in the bath, however, the bag started to turn a really weird shade of brown when it was empty. It didn’t look very nice so I took it out.

The verdict

I had great fun with this product, mostly because I could play around with the teabag. I like the fact that it dissolves fairly quickly so you don’t have to sit in the bath for too long (like with the Jelly Baths – read more here). I also think that the price is reasonable, especially for Next. You pay £12 for 9 tea bags which works out as £1,33 per bath. Compared to any Lush product it looks like a bargain.

However, I was expecting the experience to be a little bit better. The fragrance doesn’t stay around for too long and is not strong enough in my opinion. And I’m not a big fan of strong smells in a bath, so that’s saying something. Before my bath, I cleaned the bathroom and the smell of cleaning products was actually a lot stronger than the teabag’s contents. To actually smell the lavender and chamomile I had to put most of my head underwater and then I got a slight hint of it.  I’ll try it again, without cleaning, so if it’s any different, I’ll let you know.

All in all, I think Next Senses Bath Tea Collection is a great idea. It’s a nice way to tweak up your relaxing bath-time. As it’s packed as a gift with a little gift tag, it would also make a great present for any occasion. I can’t wait to try more!

Until next time xx

  1. I’ve heard of these before and I was so interested in how they work, they sound so good tbh, I defo will be adding this to my Christmas list!x

  2. This sounds like a really great idea! I do love my bath to be colourful and although I’m not a huge fan of strong scents I still like to be able to smell the scent when I step into my bathroom so I think I’m gonna stick with Lush :)x

  3. Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your web site unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this coincidence did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  4. Bath teas? When were these invented!! I love the idea of these, they are truly something different. Whenever I add something to my bath, I want it to leave the whole room smelling amazing. As well as actually feeling it in the bath, I’m not sure about these though? The concept sounds amazing! But I want them to be a lot stronger!

  5. I have never heard about bath tea. This sounds interesting but even I am a strong scent kind of a person. Nonetheless interesting for tea lovers out there 🙂

  6. I like the idea of this but I’m definitely one that likes a good strong scent or a good show with a bath product so I’m not sure I’d be too impressed with these, the scents sound really nice and detoxing though! The Body Shop used to do a green tea bath tea that smelt lush and you had to put the salts in a cute little tea strainer but I think they’ve discontinued it now 🙁

  7. What an interesting concept, one that I’ve never heard or seen before?! Does the water change colour because I’m a big kid too and that’s one thing I love about bath products? 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
