About the Organic Tea Sampler and Steeping Cup

I love tea and The Tea Spot offers some wonderful loose leaf tea so I was in heaven when I received my very own organic tea sampler and Key Lime Steeping Cup. This sampler comes with 6 mini tins filled with delicious loose leaf tea. I loved popping open the lids and seeing the different varieties. Loose tea is always a visual experience, too which makes it that much more enjoyable. The tea infuser cup was the perfect complement to my new teas!

First, let’s talk about this cup. I love the funky key lime color 1 and the design itself is eye- catching. But it’s more than eye candy; this is a very practical, functional piece as well. It is a 3-piece set: lid, cup and infuser in one. It makes loose leaf tea making as easy as using a tea bag. You simply place your loose tea into the infuser, pour your hot water in and let it steep by placing the lid on top. When your tea is finished steeping, simply remove the lid, place it on the table with the inside facing up and place the infuser inside the upturned lid. Now you’re ready to drink your tea and you even have a place to conveniently set your infuser with brewed leaves.

Since I drink loose teas a lot, I can appreciate how very convenient this cup is. The infuser is larger leaving plenty of room for the leaves to do their thing. I like that it gives the best flavor, too by the type of material it’s made of (porcelain). The inside of the cup is white, so it makes a pretty cup of tea as well. And the lid is brilliant! I’m always at a loss with what to do with my mess of loose tea once I’ve taken it with me to my desk or side table to wait for it to steep. I always have this wet mess of leaves so I love that the lid’s design makes that a thing of the past for me. You can also wash this in your dishwasher or stick it in the microwave if your tea needs to be reheated.

So now that we’ve talked about the cup, let’s talk about the tea! This organic sampler is perfect whether you’re a tea pro or a casual drinker. It even comes with a handy steeping guide. It has a great mix of 1 white, 2 black, 2 green, & 1 herbal. Whatever you are in the mood for, you’ll find it in this sampler. Specifically, here is what is included:

  • Monkey Picked White
  • New Moon Darjeeling
  • Blue Mountain Nilgiri
  • Clouds & Mist
  • Sencha
  • Rooibos

The organic white tea is Fair Trade certified and is one of the prettier teas. (I’m partial to the larger pieces.) If you’ve never had white tea before, the taste is very subtle and that is the case with this tea as well. White teas are the purest of teas as the leaves are buds and young leaves and have undergone the least amount of processing.

The organic darjeeling is also Fair Trade certified. I’m a big fan of darjeeling and so I like this one a lot. It’s such a pretty amber color in the cup and gives you a little energy boost, too. Black teas boast antiviral and antibacterial properties so this is a good one to drink up.

The organic nilgiri is said to make a fantastic iced tea although I’ve only had it hot at this point. It’s another black tea and Fair Trade certified. It has a nice full, smooth flavor.

The organic Chinese green is a pretty one as well with big swirly green leaves. It has a smoky flavor almost and is light green in the cup. Clouds and Mist takes its name from the seas of clouds surrounding the peaks on which this wild green tea is grown. I love that!

The organic sencha has dark green straight leaves. It has more of a grassy flavor to it. Green tea is a healthy habit to get in to as it’s powerful antioxidants fight viruses.

The organic rooibos is probably my favorite. Red teas just have that something extra special to me. Their flavor is almost addictive. I love the smooth taste and that little punch that rooibos always has. And the gorgeous red color in the cup is asthetically pleasing. It touts numerous health benefits and as a plus is caffeine free if you chose (or need to) avoid caffeine.

This set of teas and tea cup with infuser would make any tea lover swoon. It would also be a great way to introduce loose leaf tea to someone as well. I have been thorougly enjoyed my experience with The Tea Spot! They also have lots of other amazing items on their site. I would love the Steep and Chill, the Chocolate Cherry Bomb tea, the Blood Orange Smoothie tea and the Cold Buster Herbal tea for starters!
