Tea-spiration Book and Encha Matcha

I intended for this post to be a Tea Feature of Lu Ann Pannunzio and review of her book, Tea-spiration: Inspirational Words for Tea Lovers. However, during the holidays, Lu Ann sweetly sent me a card along with some of her favourite matcha from Encha Organic Matcha! So, instead, this will be a Tea Feature of Lu Ann with a review of her book, Tea-spiration, and a Tea Review of mini-Encha.

TEA REVIEW + UPDATE: T by Daniel’s Wow!, Rated R and Chocolate Mar-TEA-ni

T by Daniel Oolong Black Tea Spoons

Ending off the year with an oolong and two black teas. I admit, one big reason why these are the last teas of the year is because of their names: “Wow!” and “Chocolate Mar-TEA-ni”. They seem like fitting teas to end the year off with!

I came across Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company some time ago, and I fell in love with all the teas that they offered!
