I think tea people tend to be nice and I have met a lot of great people on Steepster. I have enjoyed sending and receiving surprise and planned tea packages with friends across the country and Canada, and we literally talk daily in a tea chat room.
Red Velvet a la Mode
Chi Whole Leaf recently had a Kickstarter that was successfully funded. I love seeing that! I look at Kickstarter regulary to see what's new out there in the tea world. The gist of this product is that they use all organic ingredients and grind them into a powder that can be used hot or cold to make a drink. Will from Chi was kind enough to send some samples to me to try. The one on the left lost his sticker somehow, probably my fault. There is also a chamomile version available on their website.
I was fortunate enough to be one of several bloggers who participated in a matcha blind taste test sponsored by Red Leaf Tea. RLT sent twelve samples of matcha, all from different companies, and packaged them in numbered envelopes.
I have a crazy amount of teas from Dammann Freres right now. CRAZY. Crazy good, since I love their teas.
