For as long as I can remember, my husband and I have enjoyed a pot, or a cuppa, hot tea in the evenings. We don’t claim to be tea leaf experts, but we both know what we like. I am more of a black tea drinker, while my husband leans towards the green teas, rooibos and some herbals. Usually if I’m drinking an herbal, it’s to treat an ailment. I rarely drink them for taste, unless it’s a superfood tea blend.
I stumbled upon The Republic of Tea years ago before it became so popular. They package their lovely round tea bags in tall tins, which keep the tea inside very fresh. I adore their flavors and how adventurous they can be with their tea blends. I even have a recipe on my blog here for an iced tea I make from their Pomegranate Green Tea. Our tea cabinet (yes, we have a cabinet full of different teas!) is filled with different tins from this company. We simply love them! I believe I signed up once a long time ago to be a Tea Ambassador, but I have no clue what happened there. I guess it meant I get samples occasionally, but no one from the company has ever asked me to do anything at all.
They also have a tea blog, which I find informative and fascinating. Here’s the link.

I never knew that drinking tea could become a hobby! Our collection of teas, as well as the accoutrements that go along with this pleasure, have definitely claimed real estate in our kitchen. We have steeping cups, tea balls of all sorts, resting plates, a selection of truly divine tea pots and tea cups and even to go tea steeping cups made of insulated plastic. Those are handy! And they look so smart too. My husband has traveled around the globe and he always brings back some interesting collections of teas he finds on his many journeys.
I confess…I do love a great cuppa tea! I’m looking forward to sharing a pot of something steamy and aromatic with all of you someday soon. Take care, be well and drink a lot of tea for good health!
Please share your tea drinking obsessions with me in comments. I would love to read them!
