Tea Instagram

Top Tea Instagram Users

October 28, 2013 in Tea Thoughts

I’m obsessed with Instagram. Especially when I’m following fellow tea lovers. When you put my Instagram obsession together with my tea obsession, it gets even better. I’m always looking for more tea drinkers who often post tea related photos on their accounts to follow and share. While the #tea hashtag is pretty popular with over 16 million photos, that also makes it a bit difficult to find a few photos that really stand out when it is constantly updating with new ones.

Most of the photos I see there often are just snaps of tea bags, a box of tea, a Tim Hortons or Starbucks cup, or even just stock photos. I want to be able to follow users who share photos that capture the beverage we love in a unique way. Even though I do like to see photos of people’s gathering for tea time with friends I would love to see more of the unfurling of tea leaves, the way you steep your cup, or even what you pair with a blend. To me, tea is the most lovely medium to capture.

I took it upon myself to dig deep into the Instagram tea world and find some accounts that capture tea in the way I love. Maybe some of you can relate with my points above so I wanted to share with you a list of some of the users who I have found (in no particular order).

Top Tea Instagram Users

Teaspoons and Petals

tea instagramAlexis is a tea consultant and an awesome photographer of tea. Something about the angle she captures all her unique photos enhances the images and draws my attention to them right away. I always feel like I’m there with her through each sips and nibbles of the tea & food pairings.

Tea Journal

tea instagramI really enjoy seeing this account’s tea adventures in art form. The true beauty of tea is shown in many ways.

Beginning with Bergamottea instagram

In addition to sharing some of her steeps, this tea Instagram account also features some recipes that will eventually make its way onto the blog. I like being able to follow along and get first looks at what tea infused recipe she’s working on next!

Tea For Me Please

tea instagramA great tea blog, and an even greater tea Instagram account. You can find Nicole sharing a plethora of tea photos ranging from before and after steeps, tea on the go, gorgeous tea wares and more.

Luce Leaf Tea

tea instagramI seriously think I have double tapped every single photo uploaded. The user truly knows how to capture the beauty of tea and I’m always envious of the tea ware!

The Tea Squirrel

tea instagram

Anna shares her reviews of teas she has tasted along with tea recipes on her blog. You’ll find her sophisticated photos that accompany most of her blog posts on her Instagram account as well.

World of Tea

tea instagramI often find myself jotting down new teas to try just from viewing photos of Tony’s tea experiences. I love following his tea journey through his blog, and especially his Instagram account now.

Notes on Tea

tea instagram

Georgia’s tea journey has been so much fun to follow. She shares awesome photos of her tea adventures with her sommelier course and interesting facts on tea to go with it.

The Tea Girl

tea instagramI absolutely love the aesthetics of this tea Instagram account. This is probably one of those accounts that once I see an uploaded photo, I instantly feel guided to put the kettle on.

Global Tea Hut

tea instagramI was thrilled when GTH joined Instagram because there was finally another way for me to follow the international tea community even more. If you’re looking to connect with other tea lovers from around the world, I would suggest following along.

Amanda Wilson

tea instagramShe’s great at sharing her teas of the day but I also love seeing the neat tea items (or items she restores into tea things) that she finds at thrift shops. I’m always so envious of her awesome collection found in her photos!

Tap Twice Tea

tea instagramMy most favourite photos from this account are the ones sharing their tea moments in nature. I also love following their tea travels through their awesome behind the scene photos.

Me! @teaaholic

tea instagramOf course, I’m on Instagram as well. Follow me as I share photos of tea leaves, tea ware, steeps — basically anything and everything that has to do with tea.

I know there must be many more tea friends on Instagram. Find me on Instagram and/or leave your username in the comment sections so I (and others) can check you out. With how popular tea is on Instagram, I think we should have a large tea community on there as well. Let’s make it happen together!

    Hi Lu Ann and fellow tea lovers! Please feel free to follow me on Instagram at @teaaday ! I’m an avid tea drinker from London and I share photos of my daily cup of tea. I try a different blend every day, whether it’s loose leaf or tea bags, black/green/rooibos tea or herbal/fruit tisane, hot or iced. I believe variety is the spice of life!
