Discover all this with a Tea Tasting which you can do at home, from your old chair or nice and cosy on the couch, with friends or all by yourself, taste as you like! This is how you taste the most honestly, that bottle of wine you discovered on vacation and took a few bottles of home with you? It tastes different when you drink it at home. That's why tasting at home is always the most honest, it's purely about the taste, not the environment or the experience.

It is also very nice to have snacks with your tea tasting, a High Tea! And of course this can be as simple or elaborate as you want. You can choose sweet snacks such as pastries, cakes, candies, etc. . but also savory snacks are delicious, sandwiches, toast, fish, actually there is much to be combined with tea. As you taste more tea you will discover many flavors in teas and learn what is a good match with each other.
Tea Tasting Glasses or Mugs
The perfect Tea glasses for tasting
There are many types of Tea glasses, but which one is best for tasting in? Actually, in terms of taste, it only matters what material your glass or mug is, a metal mug for example can taste very much like metal, so that affects the taste of the tea very much. We prefer to use glass, it is the most taste neutral and because it is transparent you can easily judge the color of the tea.
Perfect for everyone from beginner to tea expert!
We often get the question: Which tea is good for a beginner? And that is one of the most difficult questions. Because tastes differ, do you also not know where to start? Then we recommend you to start with a nice tea set, which one you choose does not matter yet, because in this set you get many different styles and you will discover the quickest which tea you like best. So there is always plenty to taste.
Tea Egg or Tea strainer
Please note that the best tea is always loose tea, not tea in bags. Because we only have the best tea in our Tasting Collections, you will need a Tea Egg or Tea Sieve. These come in many different sizes and types, from super cheap to nice and expensive designs. In terms of taste it will not make much difference, but in terms of convenience it will. Now that you are going to discover the wonderful world of Tea, you will be drinking a lot more Tea in the future so a little quality will come in handy.
