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.

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.

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

August 28, 2017 in Learn / Matcha 101: Learn About This Green Tea

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…
