I came across Mona’s Instagram account when I saw her carefully hand drawn tea labels and her tea travels. We started chatting and soon after she sweetly offered to send me some teas to try!

I love going to tea events since there is always so much to see! I went to the Toronto Coffee and Tea Expo a few years ago, so I decided to go again this year! Most of the events I go to tend to be just tea focused, so it was neat that this had both coffee and tea.

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!

Tea received as a gift

Tea-spiration Book and Encha Matcha

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.

Amoda Tea’s 2017 December Tea Box (ft. Aromatic Fine Teas, St. Fiacre’s Farm & The Monarch Tea Co.)| Tea Feature & Review

Amoda Tea Spoons

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! Enter Amoda Tea.  Continue reading “Amoda Tea’s 2017 December Tea Box (ft. Aromatic Fine Teas, St. Fiacre’s Farm & The Monarch Tea Co.)| Tea Feature & 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!

Bitterleaf Tea Mao Cha Spoons

I love learning about teas and how they are affected by the location, season, production, etc. Therefore, when I saw this tasting set from Bitterleaf Tea, I had to try it! The set is comprised of three different mao chas. Mao cha is the raw material used to make pu-erh.

Sips by’s 2017 October Box (Ft. West China Tea Company, Nepal Tea, 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!
