One great thing about tea is that there is so much to learn! Ever since my trip to Asia, I have been itching to know more, so I thought I would start with books. One book that was frequently recommended was Camellia Sinensis Tea House’s “Tea: History, Terroirs, Varieties (2nd)”.

Walking into a DAVIDsTEA is what started my tea adventure over 3 years ago, so when I saw that they were celebrating their 10th anniversary, I knew I had to check it out. As a tribute, DAVIDsTEA re-released a handful of fan favs and I picked up a set!

I always enjoy tasting a flight of teas and learning more about each unique tea and the differences between them. So, when I was at O5 Rare Tea + Kombucha Bar in Vancouver, Canada, I knew I had to pick up this set along with the Japanese one from last week!

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!

My intentions for this post was to feature 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.

I have to say, as a Canadian, one thing I love is supporting Canadian brands whenever I can. However, I also love tasting new teas all the time, so sample sizes are the best way for me to go!

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!

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!

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.
