Real Men Drink Tea

If Tea immediately conjures up images of chintz, lace, pinkies up and ladies who lunch, you will need to update your thinking. Gone are the days when Tea was reserved only for the feminine persuasion. Or for when you got sick. Or enjoyed in a drawing room with dainty sandwiches. It is often said that Image Lags. So true. The world of Tea has changed a while ago and it may need a little time for perception to catch up with reality.

It's Spring Cleaning Time!

Longer days, more light – that means it’s time to brush away those cobwebs, de-clutter and clean up.  Not only is this daunting, we put it off as much as we can.  De-cluttering is overwhelming and where does one start.  While you’re thinking about Spring Cleaning and tidying up, we don’t want you to overlook your Tea Cupboard.  You know that space – the one drawer where you’ve been tucking away all those bags of tea, that shelf where canisters stand without thought or order?  Yes, that space.  Time to put order to it. Let’s get started.

Step One
Take stock of the Teas you have.  Pull them all out and place them on a counter so you can see them all.

3 Rules to Storing Tea

Tea is a hardy item.  It keeps well. Nevertheless, you have to follow some simple rules in maintaining its flavor and integrity. The most basic is - no glass jars. If you are buying your tea from a tea shop that keeps its tea in see-through glass jars, change your tea vendor! For proper tea - Black, Green, Oolong, White - tea must be stored in a container that follows these three basic rules:

  • No light
  • No air
  • No moisture

Our tea canisters are ideal.  They are food-grade with a tight-fitting lid, easy to use, easy to clean. And as you can see they stay true to the objective - no light, no air and no moisture.

Tisanes & herbs may be stored in glass...

January is Hot Tea Month - Pour a Cup!

January – a time for new beginnings, a fresh healthy start – perfect for National Hot Tea Month. It’s cold outside and a hot cup of tea can warm up your resolve and your body.  Here are some ways you can celebrate the versatility of Tea:

BE MINDFUL WITH TEA
Make this the year you pause and take a moment to steep loose leaf tea.  Discard that teabag once and for all and enjoy the wide diversity and world of Tea.  The purposeful act of heating the water, measuring out the tea leaves, pouring the water over the leaves and waiting the few minutes for that perfect steep is a respite in the day. Be in the moment, focus on the simplicity of the task and then...

Tea Gifts - Samplers & Tea-of-the Month Club

 

Despite the growing popularity of Tea, coffee continues to reign supreme.  And it is still easier to buy coffee as a gift rather than Tea.  Why?  First, coffee is more readily available.  Second, there are fewer choices when buying coffee.  And lastly, it seems familiar.  Not so with Tea.  Often, even a habitual tea drinker knows the tea they enjoy but not much beyond their own category.  The Black tea drinker is confounded by Greens and Oolongs and the Ginger Peach Iced Tea customer knows only a tall glass of iced bliss.  As for those that fancy herbal teas – they swear by hibiscus or lemongrass but know very little about real tea.

With all this in mind, we designed our Tea Gifts to address these problems plus a few others. Ask yourself...
