Floral Teas to Celebrate the Arrival of Spring

March 21, 2017 in Learn / Tea Thoughts

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m not a fan of flowers. While you may find some greenery in my house, anything floral is usually fake. Don’t get me wrong though, I do think certain flowers are very pretty. I just prefer fake ones over real ones because when I find flowers that I like, well, I want them to last forever. However, my relationship with floral teas is entirely different. As it is officially spring time, flowers are on my mind and in my tea cups. Read more…

The Best Tea Prints to Dress Up Your Walls

March 16, 2017 in Tea Favourites / Tea Thoughts

In my book I talk about creating a space somewhere just for you and your tea. I have a room in my house that is devoted to all things tea and when I finally organized my tea stash decorating was the next step. I created some of my own graphics to frame and add to my white walls but I also bookmarked a few tea related prints online that immediately caught my attention. These are some of the best tea prints I came across and if you’re looking for something to spruce up where you store or enjoy your tea maybe one of these will make a lovely addition to your own tea space.

A Taste of Taiwan with High Mountain Tea

March 9, 2017 in Black Tea / Oolong Tea / Tea Review

A new tea space opened in Kensington Market, Toronto beginning of February this year. High Mountain Tea began as an online tea company and grew to a retail location because owner, Conor Murphy, wanted the opportunity to connect with fellow tea drinkers, share his knowledge and steeps in person. After a visit to Taiwan and his tea experiences there, he started sharing his passion for the beverage with those around him. The name for the new tea company originates from Conor’s love for Taiwan’s beautiful mountains. Read more…

This Month in Tea // February Blog Round Up

March 1, 2017 in Monthly Round Up

Raise your teacup if you forgot March started today! It doesn’t fail, every year February seems to throw me off course. I started this new month with a dian hong because even though it’s been spring like temperatures lately, winter is creeping back and I crave a great black tea. I ended today’s tea sips with Bombay Chai from Tea People and a few pages from The Book of Hygge. Aside from reading a bunch of books last month, some posts from fellow bloggers caught my attention. This February blog round up features a new tea place in Ontario, Canada, information on yellow tea, tea related crafts and much more. Happy reading! Read more…

At The Tea Table with Lauren of #tuesdayteacup

February 21, 2017 in At the Tea Table

#TuesdayTeacup is a hashtag on Instagram that is continuing to grow. Lauren R. started #tuesdayteacup as the perfect way for tea drinkers to share their fondest cups, and also give other tea lovers the opportunity to admire them (my favourite!). You can often find Lauren pairing her tea and teacups with needles and hooks. In addition to being a tea lover herself, her love for crocheting is also evident throughout her online shop A Bee in the Bonnet. At the tea table we talked about her earliest tea memory, creating with tea by her side and she gave us a peak inside her own teacup collection. Read more…
