How to Make Tea Infused Hot Chocolate

January 14, 2019 in Beverage / Learn / Tea Recipe

There are rare moments when I feel like wrapping myself up in a blanket and sipping a cup of hot chocolate instead of tea. During one of those moments I thought to try and merge the two drinks so I didn’t have to feel like I was cheating on my beloved tea. So, enter your new favourite winter drink: tea infused hot chocolate! If you want a more flavourful cup, you’ll definitely want to make this. Once you taste tea infused hot chocolate, it’s hard to go back to regular. Now, you’ll just need to ask yourself what tea you’re going to steep with the hot chocolate.  Read more…

Field to Cup

Tea Discovery with Field to Cup Subscription Box

January 8, 2019 in Black Tea / Green Tea / Herbal Tea / Tea Review

If there is one really great way to be introduced to new teas, it’s a tea subscription box. As a fan of this service, I recently tried a newer one. Field to Cup is described as your monthly box of tea discovery. You can get 4-5 loose leaf teas delivered to your door each month and you can slightly customize your experience. I have tried their subscription service for two months now, going on to three, so I wanted to share my thoughts! Psst..there is a giveaway at the end of this post that you should totally enter, too. Why not start the new year and national hot tea month off with some free tea? Read more…

At the Tea Table with Geoffrey Norman of Steep Stories

December 19, 2018 in At the Tea Table

My final guest at the tea table for 2018 is more than a blogger; he’s a story teller. Geoffrey Norman is the Lazy Literatus behind Steep Stories. It’s the go-to blog when you’re looking for a review that does more than just inform you how good or bad a tea might taste. He will take you along for a ride down tea tasting avenue. Whenever he publishes a post I head right to the kettle because, like a good book, his stories are best read with a cup of tea in hand. At the tea table Geoffrey talks about his first encounter with tea, his favourite tea shops in Portland, and he gives us a tour of his tea and writing space. Read more…

International Tea Day

What International Tea Day Means to Tea Drinkers Around the World

December 15, 2018 in Learn / Tea Thoughts

Since 2005, International Tea Day has been observed annually on December 15. However, this day is a bit different than other tea days that give us an excuse to celebrate the beverage. There is more behind this day than just putting the kettle on and sipping a cup of your favourite tea. This day celebrates tea culture but it is also meant to shed light on what goes on behind the scenes of getting those tea leaves to you and your cup. International Tea Day’s purpose is to spread awareness about the tea workers’ contributions and their working conditions. Read more…
