For many people, there is nothing quite like sitting down with a good old cup of tea. Whether it’s first thing in the morning, or after a long hard day, having the ubiquitous cuppa is an essential part of the daily routine. And as a nation of tea drinkers, we are becoming ever more sophisticated with the type of teas that we drink. However with the increasing numbers and varieties of teas on the market, it can be quite difficult to determine which particular tea to choose. So, if you are the type of person for whom a soggy old tea-bag would never do, then this week’s Startup of the week should be right up your street.
Tea Horse is a monthly subscription service for anyone who appreciates and wants to expand their understanding of the world of tea.
Each month, the Tea Horse team spend their time discovering, tasting and selecting fine loose teas from all across the world. From this, 4 different loose teas are then selected each month.
Subscribers to the service receive a beautifully packaged box containing :
– 4 x 15g or 20g packs of loose tea
– 40 bio-degradable, unbleached filters for brewing the loose tea
– a booklet detailing all the information on that month’s theme and the four teas that have been selected
If you do find a tea that you really like, the great thing is that Tea horse has an online shop where you can buy your new favourite in bigger quantities.
Niche subscription services like this are certainly becoming increasingly popular and we think that for tea lovers, a subscription to Tea Horse ought to be a must.
