Like most of my Tea Features, I came across Nazanin from Tea Thoughts on Instagram! I enjoyed her beautiful tea-inspired pins and recipes. Through her social media, it is obvious that she loves tea and has built on that love. In this post, I plan to introduce Nazanin and her pins, as well as review a tea she gifted me from Pique Tea!
