Topsy Turvy Tea Blend (Disney)

When I went to Disney World the last thing I was thinking of was tea. But lo-and-behold, there it was! Staring me in the face at the Epcot gift store I was in! Of the two teas I saw that were loose leaf, I bought both! My first review is of this Topsy Turvy Tea Blend.

Silver Mountain Water (Octavia Tea)

This tea is brought to us by some new folks at the 2011 World Tea Expo. Octavia Tea had a slew of different pure and blended teas at their booth which all looked and smelled great. They provided me some samples, and I bring you the first of many reviews!

Watermelon Kiwi Black Tea (Art of Tea)

Shortly after the 2011 World Tea Expo I made a suggestion to Art of Tea via Twitter to make a tea with Kiwi in it. I felt this fruit was undervalued by the tea blenders of the world, but also a difficult pairing. A couple weeks later, I got my wish!

Accessory: Tea Brewer Showdown

In the wake of the 2011 World Tea Expo I came across a series of accessories which make it simple to brew your tea. A couple of these have been around a few years, such as Adagio Teas’ ingenuiTEA. However, with new entrants to this area of tea making fun there’s a need for a product SHOOTOUT!

2011 World Tea Expo (Day 3)

This year’s World Tea Expo is my 3rd trip to this event. I’ve appreciated the opportunities to learn and meet new people each year. I’ve made friends and contacts from every corner of the world and every continent save for Antarctica. The events and sights from this first day of the expo are similar to those from the past two years. Full of energy, vibrant colors and effusive scents tantalizing for everyone here. Read more to learn more.

Check out my coverage of both Day 1 and Day 2 of the 2011 World Tea Expo.

Organic China Breakfast (Rishi Tea)

When we think of breakfast teas, we’re most commonly thinking about some form of CTC (cut, tear, curl) processed black tea. These are those small grained black pellets we’re used to seeing with English and Irish Breakfast teas as well as with traditionally prepared Indian Chai teas. But this one is different.
