When I see chocolate blends, I admit, it is hard for me to resist and this was no exception!

Did you know that white tea could be aged? I didn’t know for a long time either, but I found it really brings out the white tea flavour so, I was craving some recently!
While visiting Vancouver, BC, Canada, one tea shop I went to was O5 Tea + Kombucha Bar. I left with some samples and two flights (sets) of teas – one from Japan and another from China. This will be a two-part series with today’s post focusing on the Japanese set!
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!
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.

The best way to hone my tasting skills is to try straight/single teas! Continue reading “LH Tea Farmer Family’s Yu Lan Xiang, Mi Lan Xiang, Fenghuang Mi Lan Xiang and Da Wu Ye | Tea Review”
Having tried a handful of Japanese teas from Yunomi, I was excited to try more! I will be trying a sencha, gyokro, and a hojicha. Let’s go!
In the past, I’ve reviewed teas from Bitterleaf Teas before. However, I never really spoke about the company. I came across Bitterleaf Teas a year ago because I saw a picture of their pretty packaging (I’m a sucker for packaging).
