At the Tea Table with Milana & Alex from A Couple Reads

September 19, 2017 in At the Tea Table

My ideal weekend consists of countless cups of tea and pages of great books to read. I like to think that’s how book bloggers, Milana and Alex, spend their days. A Couple Reads is a blog where the couple shares their book reviews and other book interests, however, I initially connected with them because of their tea habits. The saying goes couples who read together, stay together and I think it’s fair to say the same can be said for those who drink tea together. This at the tea table is a bit different than the others because with two people, you’ll get two different responses — a perfect example of how everyone’s tea journey is unique. I hope you enjoy this fun format! The three of us chatted about their love for reading and tea, characters from books they would want to share a cup with and much more. Read more…

Free Tea Tasting with Hello Tea Club

September 15, 2017 in Green Tea / Herbal Tea / Tea Review

I appreciate a great tea subscription box every now and then. In fact, you can find some of my favourites right here. If you check them out, you may notice I have tried a lot in the past so when it comes to trying a new tea subscription box, I immediately look for something that makes it stand out. I’ve had tea subscription boxes that not only offer tea, but also offer treats, art, or other tea ware and accessories. The most recent company I tried, Hello Tea club, may consist of just tea but there was something different about their service that caught my attention. Read more…

5 Things You Might Not Know About Me (Outside of Tea)

September 11, 2017 in Learn / Tea Thoughts

A while back I did a post on the 10 things you might not know about my tea lifestyle. That was a lot of fun to share! Last month Nicole of Tea For Me Please told us a bit more about herself, outside of tea, and challenged other tea bloggers to do the same. Recently, some other tea bloggers joined in and now here I go! I will admit, coming up with 5 things you might not know about me that are not tea related was a bit trickier than I thought. I never realized how much my life is about tea until I worked on this list. I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me. Read more…

This Month in Tea // August Blog Round Up

August 31, 2017 in Monthly Round Up

In just a few hours the clock will hit midnight and I’ll be flipping the page on my tea calendar to a new month. Crazy! Thankfully, there are a few more weeks of summer though. Before we say goodbye to August, I’m sharing some of my favourite tea related posts from fellow bloggers this month that I think you should definitely check out. Since Afternoon Tea Week (UK) was in August and my summer has consisted of a lot of afternoon tea reservations, a couple of recipes for different tea sandwiches are included in this August blog round up, too. So, happy reading and eating! 😉 Read more…

How To Make Sure You’re Buying High Quality Matcha Online

August 28, 2017 in Learn

Matcha is growing in popularity and so are the amount of companies that are making this powdered green tea available. The downside to the vast options is that it can make shopping for matcha overwhelming. But having an in-store matcha shopping experience is a bit different than shopping for high quality matcha online. You’re at a disadvantage because you don’t get the chance to sample the tea therefore you have no way to experience the aroma, feel and taste to tell if the matcha is authentic. The important thing to note here is that not all matcha is equal. Here’s a quick story about what inspired this blog post topic. Read more…
