Tea Type

It’s been several months since I’ve reviewed a black tea (the last tea I reviewed in this category was Blue of London), and I’m very fortunate to be revisiting this type of tea with a wonderful Earl Grey blend sent over thanks to the folks at Whittard today. This earl grey is a wonderfully flavorful and refreshing cup, a perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon.

Lu An Gua Pian is a very unique and high quality green tea hailing from the Anhui province which literally translates into “melon seed tea”. It’s characterized by the shape of the tea leaves, which are flat and long. This tea is also quite labor intensive. Unlike many green teas which use the new bud or leaf tip, the second leaf on the branch is removed, deveined, and then pan-fried. Thanks to the kind folks at Petite Gaiwan for a chance to try this tea.

Canton Tea Club: 52 teas a year

The Canton Tea Co has recently announced a really interesting concept – the Canton Tea Club. The concept of the club is about exploring the world. Every week, they send an interesting tea along with the story of the tea and provide an opportunity to discover the tea and connect with other tea drinkers. I love this idea because it’s a great way to think about sampling a lot of different teas each month.
