Tea Sparrow - Sommolier Approved Teas Delivered to Your Door11:57 am
The difference between a great cup of tea and a regular cup for me, is the quality of flavour and often there is a great divide in the refreshment factor too. That's why I recommend Tea Sparrow. These loose-leaf teas are some of the best I've ever tried.
This uber-convenient and insanely affordable subscription service is an easy way to expand your knowledge of teas over a short period of time. Upon subscribing, you'll begin receiving your monthly tea box of 4 carefully selected teas by tea sommoliers from around the world.
When I first came across the site, I was sure it was too pricey for me - I mean, come on, this is quite an exclusive service so there's no way that someone on my budget could afford it. Then I saw the price and it's incredible - $20/mo (shipping and tax included) for 4 premium loose leaf teas. Aren't you already paying about $5 a box at the grocery store? Well, Tea Sparrow teas are so beyond your average boxed teas, you'll have a hard time going back.
First of all they are made with premium, often organic, fair trade certified ingredients and even more than that, I found whole berries in my teas - talk about nutritious!
- Take the Blueberry Rooibos, for example. I don't like blueberries and pretty much go out of my way to avoid them. But this tea was so delicious, I had multiple cups every night for a week. Throughout the days of that week, I looked forward to coming home and having that tea. Made with organic fair trade certified rooibos, organic blueberries, organic schizandra berries, organic fair trade certified hibiscus and natural flavours of blueberry and strawberry, it was like having a cocktail every night, but without the dreaded effects of alcohol!
