Product Review: Tea Pockets

November13

Where to Buy:  Octavia Tea

Company Description:

Now you can enjoy the quality of loose-leaf tea with the convenience of a tea bag!  Tea Pockets make brewing loose tea easier than ever.

Unlike other fill-your-own tea bags, Tea Pockets are self-sealing and come with a string attached for easy removal after steeping.  Tea Pocket’s ultra-thin, almost transparent material allows water to completely circulate through the leaves, which yields a better tasting cup of tea.  Tea pockets are disposable, bleach-free, adhesive-free and have no paper taste.  Great for tea on the go.

50 fill-your-own tea bags per box.

Product Review:

As many of you probably know, I have been a tea artist (err… that is, I flavor and blend unique tea blends) for many years now.  And during those many years, I have utilized T-Sacs quite often – when sampling out my own blends.  Heck, I even sold them!

But, today, I have discovered a better product.  Tea Pockets!  What makes these so much better, you ask?  Well, these have a nifty fold-over flap (kind of like the old-school sandwich bags that mom used to pack in my lunches) to keep the tea leaves safely ensconced within the roomy pouch.  These also have a string loop to easily (and painlessly) remove the “tea bag” from the hot liquid.

And like T-Sacs, these are also bleach-free (and tasteless) so there are no chemicals to alter the taste of your tea.

This is THE WAY to make your own tea bags – which will be better than any commerically manufactured tea bag! – because you use your favorite high quality loose leaf tea!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
