During this time of year, we can all benefit from a hot cup of Honeysuckle Spice. Packed with echinacea, lemongrass, mint, orange, jasmine, and honeysuckle, this black tea helps to support your immune system. I've been fighting off a cold these past few days, and Honeysuckle Spice is surely getting me through it! For everyone else trying to stay healthy, what are your secrets to avoiding and (worst case scenario) battling a cold? Also, thank you to @sneedacres for capturing this beautiful photo--their family makes amazing soaps, so be sure to check them out!
a crisp sunday morning⠀ ⠀ ⠀ with too much rain and no clear sky outside I opted for winter crisp oolong ⠀ @mountain_stream_teas ⠀ after my morning run⠀ ⠀ These days I spend far more time in #sheng and #shou territory but Matt's teas always remind me how great oolong is, especially taiwanese oolong. This one is no exeption.⠀ ⠀ "Winter Crisp Oolong" a truly apt name for this high mountain oolong. It's sweet, buttery yet at the same time there's this surprisping crispness, somewhat salty freshness. Sparkling as Champagne.⠀ ⠀ I'm tempted to get more of this pick, but that would mean breaking my frugalitea oath (#drinkyourstash)
Barista: What name would you like on it? Me: Carri (spells slowly and accurately) C...A...R...R...I Barista: That’s a pretty spelling! Me: Thank you 😊 Order up, I receive the cup, and THIS is what she wrote. I never said K. There was no N. How can I be so confident in my memory? Because I spelled MY OWN NAME, which has, in the actual, been spelled CARRI for literally my entire life. Me: **takes cup, shakes head, proceeds to shop in disbelief
Only a true Taiwanese master potter could make a teapot so small and adorable. Swoon! The Petite Purple Clay Pocket Teapot brews approximately 2 ounce infusions of your high-end favorites (oolongs recommended). This little friend has its own built in strainer as well.

So here they are! We are launching this organic Sencha loose leaf thanks to Rachel @rachelontherock ☺ When she started to brew her Kombucha, she asked for a good quality loose leaf green tea. What I had at that time was organic Genmaicha which is a blend of Sencha loose leaf + toasted brown rice + a bit of high grade Matcha. To be honest I didn’t want her to use this tea for Kombucha in the beginning since this tea is a special blend and I wanted people to enjoy its own flavour. To explain more, there are Genmaicha which is blended with Bancha instead of Sencha, which is considered lower grade tea but this Genmaicha is using first flush Sencha with sweeter Umami flavour, which makes it more special about this tea. So I thought about it, looked for organic Sencha loose leaf which is reasonable for Kombucha brewers to brew regularly, got sample, Rachel tested and approved it, made new label, aaaand finally they are here for sale! There is also my hope in this tea that those who don’t like green tea can also benefit from this tea by brewing Kombucha with it, since the flavour totally changes to bubbly alcoholic drink if you know what I mean... To celebrate the launch, we are doing give away with this tea and Kombucha of @rachelontherock very soon so stay tuned! Shall I include Matcha muffins in the giveaway too? 🤔😉 #organic#sencha#looseleaf#steeping#japan#japanesetea#natural#nature#steaming#healthy#lovetea#teatime#afternoontea#teaofinsta#malta#onlineshop#jokiniproductsfromjapan#抹茶#宇治抹茶#マルタ#マルタで宇治抹茶#kombucha#kombuchamalta#コンブチャ
Prepare for the chilly week ahead with an assortment of teas from @olssonsfinefoods. Thought they just had cheese, think again! Choose from darjeeling, japanese sencha, peppermint, chai, jasmine pearl, or lavender earl grey 🍵
Just in case I’d fooled you into thinking I’ve got this whole thing together...tried to set up for a photo of my @noondaycollection necklace for my friend to see when the phone slipped and I dumped boiling tea onto my arm🔥. Good times. I did notice two things though—my hair hasn’t frizzed out in this rain (thank you hair cream) and, I should wear my lipstick more often.
*sips tea* I use condensada in can for my tea. No pesky sugar and creamer packets and it's cheap AF. A little goes a long way. - Tea caddy, metal scoop, and can opener from @daisophilippines - Teapot with strainer from @japanhomecentre - Black loose leaf tea from @sneha_the_affection My mom and I are heavy tea drinkers. While she's a fan of herbal teas and tea blends, I'm more of a Snooty McSnoot when it comes to tea (read: ELITISTA). I grew up on teabags and kalamansi. Pero as I got into the #zerowaste lifestyle, I became more mindful of the waste and the #carbonfootprint a single teabag creates. Legit, I stopped buying teabags until I could find a proper supplier of loose leaf tea. I know a few online shops that sell loose leaf tea, but it's a bit steep (pun intended!) I want to buy in bulk, and I want to buy pure Assam, Oolong, and Pu'er. I'm pretty sure Rose Tea is lovely, pero gusto ko ng Tsaa Na Kaya Kang Ipaglaban (#strong). Anyway, Chef @caidere helped save me the trip to Binondo and got me teas from @twgteaph. I'm very lucky to have friends who spoil me. #lasangdamo#camelliasinensis#looseleaftea#steeping#steepingitreal#daisofinds#lesswaste#plasticfree#trashisfortossers#packagefree#bulkfoods#take3forthesea#plasticfreeseas#walausik#milktea#tea#consciousconsumer#mindfulchoices
