Treasure Green Tea Company Aged White Shou Mei Spoon

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!

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!

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!

Ippodo Tea Co.’s Tancho-no-mukashi and Ummon-no-mukashi | Tea Review

Tea discounted for review

Ippodo Tea Co. Matcha Spoons

One brand that has been recommended to me a few times regarding matcha was Ippodo Tea Co.! However, since I am Canadian, and all products ship from Japan, they were rather costly. I was happy when I found out that a Canadian brand, Menos, partnered with Ippodo and carried some of their items.

Tea discounted for review

Sips by Sept Box Teas Spoons

I knew about Sips by for a while. However, I admit, I did find their price point a bit high since I am in Canada and international shipping would bump up the price of a box. However, they offered to send me a discount code for three months, so I decided to give it a whirl. Continue reading “Sips by’s 2017 September Box (ft.

Tea received at a discount for review

LH Tea Farmer Family Oolong Tea Spoons

As much as I love my blend teas, I have been very interested in straight/single teas because I feel that in order to understand tea better, I need to be able to taste the difference between them. 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”

Bitterleaf Teas Puer Tea Two Spoons

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).

3 Teas Green Oolong Herbal Tea Three Spoons

As a Canadian, I always love supporting tea brands in Canada. So, when I realized 3 Teas offered sample sizes, I had to try some! 3 Teas advertise themselves as: “Purveyors of fine, ethically produced speciality teas from Burlington, Ontario, Canada.”
