To get you started, we put together a roundup of some of the tools and teas you might want to try on your journey to finding the perfect cup.


A Tea Subscription

The Tea Spot Sampler

If you're new to the world of tea, there's no better way to find your favorite than to try out a wide variety. If you don't live near a good tea shop, fear not! There are plenty of online subscription services. The Tea Spot is one of our favorites. The monthly box subscription features three different seasonally-appropriate samples (with roughly 5 servings per sample), plus one single-serving sample. There are also educational postcards with information about where the tea is from, along with the occasional bit of bonus swag.
