Obubu Tea Common Japanese Green Teas

Since I am living at Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms in Japan, it seemed most fitting to start a series focused on tea: TEA 101! The first post I wanted to write was a guide to common Japanese green teas.

Tea received at a discount for review

Sips by Nov Spoons

This will be my last Sips by review for the year! That actually makes me sad. I received three boxes and each one was unique and fun! This time there are two blacks, a puerh ball, and a herbal blend in the box!

Tea provided for review

Lemon Lily Green Black Herbal Tea Spoons

I am not 100% on this, but I’m pretty sure I came across Lemon Lily in the comment section on one of my posts when I asked about flavouring in blends. Jason, the owner, kindly chimed in and was very informative about flavouring!

Tea provided for review

Shibui Tea Tropical Green, English Breakfast, and Imperial Yunnan Organic Spoons

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!

Sips by’s 2017 October Box (Ft. West China Tea Company, Nepal Tea LLC, The Tea Spot, and Camellia Tea) | Tea Review

Tea discounted for review

Sips by Oct Spoons

This is my second monthly box from Sips by. I have to say, I really enjoyed my first box because it gave me the opportunity to try some new brands. One thing I still like about the boxes is how the tea is sent in the brand’s own packaging, so you’re able to get a sense of the company. I think that that is a neat touch!

Genuine Tea’s Organic Dragonwell, Ginseng Oolong, and Imperial Golden Monkey | Tea Review

Genuine Tea Spoons

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!
