I'm a little teapot. I steep tea, hang out with my Tea Gang (other teapots and tea wares), tweet on Twitter, and generally make tea more fun and enjoyable. TOOOT!

Turkish Tea Page Up and Ready on World Tea Portal!

Our World Tea Portal, the section of our site that connects you with great teas and those who sell them, has an addition: Teas from Turkey!

The odd thing is that, although Turkey is the 5th largest tea producer worldwide and is supposed to be the #1 consumer per capita, little information is available online about their tea gardens and the different brands. The monopoly brand Caykur is everywhere, but few others.

Regardless, we present what we found. If you have any additions to suggest, please send us the info through our Contact Us page.

TOOOT!

Little Yellow Teapot Ponders: Tea Prices

Having just helped my humans try a couple of tea samples with rather high price tags, this little teapot started pondering the issue of tea prices. From Makaibari and other tea gardens vying to get the highest price at auction for their processed teas to humans hyping certain teas to justify that high price tag, it seems that you have quite a dilemma – and possibly a tough time ahead finding affordable tea. Or do you? Continue reading Little Yellow Teapot Ponders: Tea Prices

Little Yellow Teapot Explores: Single Estate Teas from Senok in Sri Lanka

Senok Tea first came to this little teapot’s attention when I was helping my humans put together their list of tea companies as part of our World Tea Portal. And their offer to send us some teas was just too good to resist. Ten teas were received, so we are breaking them into groups. The first group consists of three single estate teas.

Little Yellow Teapot Educates: Tea Growing in Thailand

When you humans think of tea and of countries where it is grown, Thailand may not even be on the list. However, teas from Thailand are becoming better known to those seeking out something new to try. Production and export are fairly limited at this time. Continue reading Little Yellow Teapot Educates: Tea Growing in Thailand

World Tea Portal Now Part of This Site and Growing

As I have always said, dear humans, the more you learn about tea, the more you enjoy your tea. And it will also very likely lead you to be bold and explore more teas.

The World Tea Portal is a natural development from our years of helping you in this learning process. You’ve learned. Now, it’s time to go shopping. But where? The Portal of course!

Once this idea occurred to me and my humans, we began work, setting up the Portal as a totally separate site. But there is so much good info on here that relates to the teas listed for sale and the tea sellers that we thought you would find it easier to have everything in one place. Most info has been moved over to here from that site, and a lot of additions have been made.

We want to draw your particular attention to some often overlooked areas of the tea-growing community:

Things aren’t complete, but then this is intended to be an ongoing project and so will be updated continually and as time permits (that means in-between, and even while, enjoying pots of hot tasty tea!).

We hope you will take time to check them out. TOOOT!

Please note: the links are provided for your benefit. We do not sell directly so that we can keep this site free to you and us. We also do not get compensated from the various tea sellers. Some send us tea samples, but that is usually a “Thank you” and done AFTER their listing has been posted.

Little Yellow Teapot Advises: Easter, Spring, and Tea

The date on the calendar may change from year to year, but Easter remains the same, that is, a time of renewal and for observing the coming back to life of the world around us. Flowers bloom, birds sing, and the Sun is higher in the sky, giving us all a feeling of waking from a long, deep rest. Or switching from watching a black-and-white movie to a color movie. Well, you get the idea. Continue reading Little Yellow Teapot Advises: Easter, Spring, and Tea
