Grand Tea is a Hong Kong based company run by two brothers who love tea. I love everything about that sentence! We have become friendly on Instagram and I was excited for the chance to sample some of their teas. I had a bit of a hard time deciding which one to sample first of the ones that they sent, but I settled on their GABA Oolong.
Just Add Honey came to my attention when I was looking around online for subscription boxes, but I have learned that they also have a retail cafe in downtown Atlanta where they have high tea and tea tastings. Now I really want to go there! I am really enjoying the various boxes that are available that include tea and something else - a book, some honey, who knows what else is out there? What I like about them is that they bring something new to my life. I already know that I like tea but they include something else and usually I like those things too. I happen to love honey (my husband does too) so I was excited about this box.
I know that lately I have been on this subscription box streak, but I hope you don't mind. Eventually I will run out and be back to all tea, all the time. Today's post is a "twofer" - because I never wrote up last month's box from London Tea Club. So I'm going to include both in this post.
I am a daily travel tumbler user, so I was really excited to have a chance to review the just-released Sei Sei Portable Tea Infuser Bottle. Believe me, I shopped around for a long time before I settled on the tumbler that I use now, and I wish this one had been available back then. Let's dive in.
In the past I always made matcha lattes in my blender, so I was really excited to have a chance to try out some more traditional implements. MatchaDNA provided me with a free bamboo whisk and spoon for this review. They are also giving a 25% off coupon code for Tealover readers! That code is: Y98VQ47Z and it is valid for the next three months.
