I truly believe that each cup of tea has a story, either the story of the leaves or a certain tea is associated with a specific memory. I think Teabury‘s story that they bring to each cup is how much love and dedication to quality. I am very excited because they really believe in quality organic ingredients and NO natural flavors. Here were my thoughts:
Analyzation of the Teas:
Lavender Earl Grey: I am very picky about my Earl Grey teas. I found one that I love and I have never found a tea on the same level and man, have I tried to find one. This tea was exceptional. I think almost at the same level as my favorite. The combination of the lavender with the black tea and cornflower was very beautiful and the tea actually made my entire car smell like Lavender Earl Grey. I was especially impressed by the fact that there are no additives or natural flavors in this tea despite its strong taste of each individual flavor. That really speaks to the quality of the tea ingredients. I specifically had asked for Lavender Earl Grey because I was hoping to find another kind that I could get regularly (I promise I was not trying to set this company up for failure). Interestingly enough, I put all of the earl grey teas to the test in a live Instagram video. The lavender definitely helped me place a name and brand to this tea. (I got all 4 teas correct).
Ingredients: Organic Black Tea, Organic Lavender Buds
Wake Me Up: I used this tea in a different way then the name suggested. I drank it to calm me down, instead of waking me up. The peppermint actually calmed my stomach which was acting up a bit, while the lemon verbena crept in as a subtle partner. I did not taste any earthy undertone that was suggested on their website. Wake Me Up, is an interesting name for an herbal tea. I do not know if I would drink this in the morning, peppermint is somewhat known for waking some people up, but I usually drink my mint teas and anything with lemongrass, lemon balm, or lemon verbena before bed.
Ingredients: Organic Peppermint, Organic Nettle, Organic Lemon Verbena
Analyzation of the Pricing:
The Lavender Earl Grey tea goes for $4.93 USD for 50 grams of loose leaf tea. Supposedly that will give me 15-20 cups of tea! That means that each cup is about $0.33 to $0.25 per cup! The Wake me Up tea goes for $5.34 for 25 grams of loose leaf tea. I think that is a great price for the quality tea that you get. These teas are also available on my Sip&Shop page!
Analyzation of the Packaging:
The packaging for this tea was adorable. I love the bright green colors and the shape of the tea container. In the packaging was a sealed (aluminum?) pouch which had contained all of the tea leaves. I think, however, that the tea will eventually be transferred into a more airtight container to preserve this tea. Since the bag that was opened (by me), I felt as if the tea would be better suited for a more airtight seal than a chip-clip keeping the bag closed in its box. I also really enjoyed the disposable filters that were sent with the tea, I recently bought some of my own so I could travel with loose-leaf tea more. They looked to be good quality and were easy to use.
I hope you enjoyed this review! I really appreciate the dedication to quality that Teabury has for their tea and how I could taste the quality in every cup! Stay tuned for my next review and happy brewing!
