The blog post below is from our friend Lizz who is an active writer and true tea enthusiast. Between her blog ‘The Tea Addicts Confessional’ and her community-based tea website ‘Stylin’ Tea’, she stays quite involved in the industry. Her review below on April’s tea, Meditative Mind, goes beyond recognizing our tea selection and gives you a great snapshot of the blender, The Tea Spot, who created it. Giving our members exposure to great blenders and their products is our company’s primary goal, so we particularly liked this review.
I Love Tea Shamelessly
Tea Sparrow included this tea as one of their monthly selections and it is clear after one sip why it was chosen. This is a wonderful tea. It is great hot or iced.
They describe this tea as:
‘A beloved blend of pure Chinese white tea, rosebuds and jasmine pearls, this tea creates an experience of aromatherapy that sharpens the mind and arouses the senses. The exotic floral scent of night–blooming Jasmine is uplifting and soothing, and is used as an anti-depressant in herbal medicine. Rosebuds are used to ease nervous tension and stress, and have a calming effect on the mind. This combination works together to enhance the light, subtle flavor of the white tea leaves. This tea brews into a golden liquor with a very soothing fragrance, and is perfect before, during, or after a stressful day.’
The tea not only has a lovely fragrance and flavor but it looks beautiful in the tea press. This is one of The Tea Spot’s signature blends and is a top seller for a good reason.
They also have a wonderful mission statement:
Our vision for a profitable, sustainable and philanthropic business has a singular focus – to help people live longer, healthier lives by making loose leaf tea an everyday luxury. We’re inspired by medical research suggesting that full leaf teas boast many health and nutritional benefits – from helping prevent cancer and heart disease, to stress management and weight loss.
That sounds good to me! Thank you, Tea Sparrow, for introducing me to another great tea blender and awesome company!
