You love tea. You drink it every day in the morning to wake you up, in the afternoon to give you a lift, and at night to help relax before bed. But you don’t know very much about it.

Sure, there’s black tea, green tea, herbal tea and red tea – oh, and white tea, too! But that’s pretty much the extent of your tea knowledge.

Well guess what – ours too!

‘Why on earth do you write tea reviews, then?’ I hear you ask. ‘You’re not experts.’

Indeed, we’re not. But there’s something about tea that we love. The fact you can drink it at any time of day – for any purpose – and it will make you feel better. Or the fact that sharing a pot of tea with someone makes you feel all warm and cosy inside. Or perhaps it’s just that it’s so goddamn delicious.

If you’re a fancypants tea snob, this probably isn’t the blog for you.

Whatever it is, we’re on a mission to learn more about this liquid we consume on a daily basis, and want to share with you what we find out as we go. It’s a learning journey of the cosiest kind.

So, if you’re a fancypants tea snob, this probably isn’t the blog for you. But if, like us, you love to drink tea and want to learn more about where it comes from, get inspired by different tea drinking traditions around the world, and discover what makes this beverage so magical, and appreciate a little light-heartedness – then welcome!

But first – and this is very important: Make yourself a brew, sit down and get comfortable.
