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.

Our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens Is Here at Last!

Well, dear humans, months and months of work by my ‘she’ human have finally resulted in the completion of our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens. Assam tea is our favorite here.

Little Yellow Teapot Reports: Lochan Gold a True Revelation

My humans love Assam CTC style black tea. They keep me and the Tea Gang, especially Betty Blue Teapot in her lovely cozy from Tafferty Designs (one of our site sponsors), very busy steeping up potfuls. A couple of weeks ago they saw a post on social media about a new CTC style black tea called “Lochan Gold” from another site sponsor: Lochan Tea Ltd. in Siliguri, West Bengal, India. They asked if they could try the tea, and the good folks there sent over a package. It was tea party time at our house that day for sure!

In cooler weather or when those Summer storms erupt, we might huddle indoors and sip strong hot tea from a mug held in both hands to warm them. But some go for that strong hot tea for the quick jolt it can give even in hot weather. Sounds great! Continue reading Tea Tuesday: Strong Hot Tea Even in Summer

Once again, your fave teapot is sending you a cheery “TOOOT!” from the land of Myanmar (formerly Burma), with another wonderful tea from Shan Valley Tea Company. They are located here in the U.S. but have strong ties with tea growers from their home country. Always a good thing as far as I and my humans are concerned.
