The Origin Stories of Chinese Tea 0

China is home to a variety of rather interesting types of teas that mostly differ to what we're accustomed to here. While the types of tea the Chinese tend to drink may seem limited, the variation within those types can be extremely varied and with great importance being placed on the mountain/field of origin, along with the age in some types of teas too.

Tea Packs and Gifts for Weddings

Tea Packs and Gifts for Weddings 0

Wedding gifts are an important and lasting memory of that special day, and with tea becoming a trending idea for such occasions I thought I would talk about that a little here at Tea Life. The possibilities are numerous, with personalized name tags, test tubes, a variety of stunning colours and flavours to choose from, and if you really want to go all out - adding a tea strainer to each gift pack.

Fantastic product the best service & communication ive had in years and I cannot recommend this product and company to highly

Hi David, wow thank you. We always do our best.
Okay, I’m convinced!

Reading through the reviews of the Cacao Chocolate Husk Tea I thought “well, maybe it’s vaguely chocolatey in taste, but these are the opinions of tea drinkers, not hard core chocolate drinkers such as me”. Still, curiosity saw me ordering the small 40g pack which arrived with other tea varieties I decided to sample.

I followed the suggestion about crushing the husks before steeping for 7 minutes and cautiously took a sip... Wow! Everything that other reviewers have posted is true! So here I am, back on the Tealife site, nursing my second cup of Cacao Tea and ordering the 160g packet...

Hi Liz, wow thank you I love this review :) We're reallllly hoping to get the price down this year further. It's always a bit of a pricey tea but we'll do our best.
