In the 14 Day Tea Tour, you’ll receive 14 carefully curated teas from around the globe.
“The 14 Day Tea Tour is what I WISH I had when I first started learning about tea. I sipped a lot of mediocre tea to discover the world of handcrafted direct trade teas. I’m bringing these handcrafted teas to you in the 14 Day Tea Tour.” ~ Dina
Each tea in the 14 Day Tea Tour is lovingly hand-packaged in just the right amount for you to brew. There’s over 56 cups of tea are within these leaves. That breaks down to 0.66 cents per cup of tea.
The labels on each package detail EXACTLY how to brew each tea for optimal flavor. That means that you’ll get the water temperature and brewing time needed for each steep. Remember: each tea steeps between 3 to 5 times. You can’t do that with tea dust!
If you’re thinking…
“Do these teas have caffeine?”
All tea has caffeine. If you’re drinking something that doesn’t have caffeine, that’s not tea – it’s probably an herbal infusion of some sort.
Tea comes from the same plant – Camellia sinensis. Depending on the type of tea, caffeine content varies. For instance, teas on the lighter end of the color spectrum (white, yellow and green) have less caffeine than black teas.
“Loose tea seems expensive.”
The 14 Day Tea Tour is what I wish I had when I started. I’ve removed the expense of buying large quantities of teas you’re not sure you’ll like AND the expense of wasting tea that you’ve brewed “wrong.”
PLUS, you get 3 or more cups of tea from a small amount of leaves because they contain more flavorful oils than the tea dust in tea bags. The 14 Day Tea Tour gives you an array of samples, so you can decide what types you like and buy with confidence in the future.
In all, each cup of tea costs about 0.66 cents!
“I have too much tea already” or “I’ve already tried these teas”
You don’t have these teas in your tea cabinet. I’ve curated 14 teas produced by small growers from across the globe. These loose leaf teas are uniquely made in small batches, and they’ll only be available for a short time. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
“I’m not a tea drinker”:
This is the perect opportunity to see what’s out there. These 14 teas will introduce you to the world of teas. Each one comes with step-by-step directions and tasting notes, so you can brew your perfect cup of tea.
“Tea tastes bitter to me” or “I don’t know how to brew loose leaf tea”
I’ve got you covered. Brewing tea right ensures your cuppa won’t be bitter or weak. Each tea has steep-by-steep brewing instructions, so you never have to guess how long to brew your tea or how hot the water should be.
“I don’t have time to brew loose leaf tea”
Loose tea doesn’t take longer than tea bagged tea once you know what you’re doing. I created the 14 Day Tea Tour to help you brew with confidence.
That said, Tony Robbins likes to say, “If you don’t have ten minutes a day for yourself, then you don’t have a life.” I like to think of my morning tea ritual as the time I take for myself to ground myself for the rest of the day. You an take these perfectly pre-packaged teas with you to work or use them at home. All you need to do is add water. If you’re not willing to take 10 minutes a day to take care of yourself, then the 14 Day Tea Tour may not be for you.
“I already know what I like. I don’t need recommendations.”
If you’re not adventurous, then the 14 Day Tea Tour probably isn’t for you. Each year, tea estates grow and produce tea in new ways. For instance, the Silver Queen is an experimental white tea produced in India. Once a year I curate 14 teas from around the globe produced by small tea growers using organic processes to create a once in a lifetime loose leaf tea experience. You haven’t had these teas before, and you won’t get a chance to try these teas again.
“I don’t like the brew tools I have. How should I brew it?”
If you don’t like the brew tools you have, I carry my favorite Brewing Tools in the Shop
“I’m used to tea bags. I’m not sure how these are different”
First, loose leaf tea is more flavorful than the tea dust you find in tea bags. Tea dust are small particles or flakes of tea most often in store bought tea bags.
Second, loose leaf tea has more healthy oils in their leaves than tea dust because the processes used to create tea dust removes a lot of them.
Third, loose leaf is affordable long term. You can get 3 to 5 cups of tea from a small amount of leaves because they contain more flavorful oils than the tea dust in tea bags. The 14 Day Tea Tour gives you an array of samples, so you can decide what types you like and buy with confidence in the future.
Fourth, brewing loose leaf teas creates a satisfying ritual that sets the tone for your day.
