WayGood Tea is a new company to me, and when given the chance, I was happy to review this tea for them. They are based in Seattle and the focus of the company is promoting wellness through healthy tea. The product line consists of four blends; one contains camellia sinensis and the other three are tisanes. I was allowed to choose which one I wanted to review, and since I quite like both Earl Grey and lavender, this one was a no-brainer for me.
A Quarter to Tea is a new company to me and this is the first tea of theirs that I have tried. They were nice enough to offer up some samples on Steepster in exchange for review and I was excited to take them up on that. I love "fun" teas and there aren't many companies doing them - just a precious few. I love the companies who do their own blends and have new blends regularly, and A Quarter to Tea says on their site that they will intoduce a new tea each week, which is exciting.
Occasionally I get the opportunity to review items that aren't tea related, and I would be crazy to turn that down! Chef Express offered to send a set of their salt and pepper grinders and I happily accepted.
There is a lot of negativity in the tea world about teas that are in bags or sachets. Normally I would agree. I like my tea leaves to go commando just like the next girl. But, if your complaint is that the teas that come in sachets are of inferior quality, I have a solution for you.
Raizana Tea Company has a tea bar located in Fresno, CA. They also sell their teas and tisanes online, both on their site and on Amazon. They were kind enough to provide me with two tisanes to review. I had some options and chose two: HappyTea and TranquilyTea. My rationale was that most of us like to have a drink early in the day to get going, and another in the evening to wind down. I tested both of these in the same day to see how they impacted me.
