I came across Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company some time ago, and I fell in love with all the teas that they offered! I reached out to ask about shipping, but Paul, the owner, was kind enough to offer to send me some teas to try! The teas will be split into two posts: this one featuring a white, green, and oolong, and a later posting with only oolongs!
This isn’t the first time I had the opportunity to try T by Daniel! I came across the brand when someone on Facebook visited their shop and posted about it. I love supporting Canadian brands, so I reached out to buy sample sizes. Daniel and Renata (husband and wife team) made me the custom size teas I wanted. Continue reading
I actually came across this brand on Instagram. However, it was a UK brand. Thankfully, I did some digging and found out that they had a Canadian arm, so I reached out to buy some samples. Paul, one of the brothers, was kind enough to send me some teas and some tea filters!
I came across Genuine Tea when I was looking for Canadian brands to try. I admired that the teas were ethically sourced, organic, and sustainable. I was very lucky that David, one of the co-owners, sent me some samples of their teas to try, and I really enjoyed them! Continue reading
One brand that has been recommended to me a few times regarding matcha was Ippodo Tea Co.! However, since I am Canadian, and all products ship from Japan, they were rather costly. I was happy when I found out that a Canadian brand, Menos, partnered with Ippod and carried some of their items. Continue reading
I figured since the holidays were around the corner (okay, in two months time), I thought that it would be fun to try more festive sounding teas. What can I say, I like the holidays! I will be trying three green teas blends today. Let’s go!
Originally, this post was actually meant to be a flight of three teas. However, I received the same tea in my October Sips by Monthly Box. I decided to try it with the monthly box instead because I wanted to have a fair representation of the box when reviewing it. Therefore, today I will be comparing two teas – a green/mate blend, and a black tea blend.
Since I am on a quest to learn more about straight teas, one part of the world I have been tasting a lot from is Japan – their green teas in particular. I think that there is a lot of skill and dedication involved in growing and producing green teas that have such a wide range of taste.
Today, we will be trying three teas – a tencha (which is used to make matcha) and two senchas.
