Clean your teacup with this easy trick

It happens to the best of us.

We reach for our favourite mug or teacup, anticipating the warm comfort we will enjoy in just a few moments…

And, well, the view is slightly less than savoury:

A stained teacup

A stained cup.

For those of us who drink tea a lot, this buildup can happen rather quickly. So, what’s a tealover to do?

Don’t worry, friend. There’s a very simple trick for solving this problem. It’s quick, easy, and uses something you probably have in your cupboard already.

Baking soda

Namely, baking soda.

Simply place a dab onto a moist sponge or dishcloth, then wipe down the inside of your cup.

It works like a charm. The dirt easily lifts off!

Works like magic!

Crisp white and beautiful again

That’s more like it, eh? Now on to the good stuff…

3 tips for the perfect cup of tea

that 1

Use filtered water

If you use tap water to make tea, your infusion will have the flavour of…well, tap water. And that’s just so sad. Defend your luxury tea from corruption by using a water that is pure; like spring or filtered water.

that 2

Use the right water temperature

Boiling water is not a one-temp fits-all solution. Some teas (like white and green teas) are more delicate than others (like black and fruit teas) and will turn bitter when steeped with boiling water. For a quick reference on which temp is right for your tea, check out our handy guide here.


Set a timer

Just like water temp, different teas require different amounts of time to achieve the optimal infusion. Most fruit or rooibos teas can be steeped until you drink the last sip, while green teas should not stand in the water for more than three minutes. This guide also has info on the right amount of steeping time for each tea type.

(Of course, for the perfect cup of tea, you’ll want to use a high quality loose leaf tea; and for that, our subscription boxes can help you out.)

Making the perfect cup of tea is easy. On the other hand, it’s also easy to miss; particularly with more delicate varieties of tea.

The trick is to know and follow the “rules” of steeping.

Did you know that each kind of tea has its own rules? Yeppers. Things like water temperature and steeping time can have a dramatic effect on the end result.

For example, water at 100° (boiling) can turn green tea bitter, leaving an infusion that is far less than optimal. Green tea should be steeped with water that is around 75° (Wait a minute…does this mean it’s possible that some people who believe they don’t like green tea…have really never had a properly-steeped cup?! *gasp* How tragic!).

But never fear! We’ve got the rules laid out for you in this quick reference chart. Like a good friend, it’ll be there for when you need that helpful advice on getting the perfectly steeped cup.

(By the way, for Rooibos and some Fruit teas, you can actually leave the steeping for as long as you like, as they won’t turn bitter with over-steeping; 5 minutes is just the minimum. Also, generally speaking, 1 heaping teaspoon of dry loose tea for 1 cup of water will do the trick).

6 reasons why a subscription to makes the perfect gift

Gift-hunting can be complicated… Or, it can be really, really fun, especially when you’re thinking about that special someone in your life that you want to see smile. Let us assist in this process by submitting to you 6 reasons to consider giving a gift subscription to

  1. It’s personalized. Each box is mailed to a specific person’s address, with their name on it. And each box is carefully hand-packaged with love.
  2. It comes in the mail, and that’s exciting. When it comes to bills, mail is no fun. But when it comes to fun boxes filled with tea happiness, mail is like being specially selected to get an extra dose of awesomeness.
  3. It keeps the happiness coming. The excitement begins when you explain that you’ve purchased a gift subscription. Then it continues when the lucky person receives their first box and starts to experience each of the teas. Then it happens all over again the following month, and the next, for the duration of the subscription, and with every steeped cup! They’ll think of you each time, and of what a thoughtful gift-giver you are.
  4. It’s unique. This is nothing like the well-worn ideas of socks, scarves, and perfume. A gift subscription to offers a unique experience as well as an amazing product.
  5. It’s healthy. You know, chocolates, cakes, or other sugar-filled treats may not be the best way to express goodwill towards someone. Antioxidant-rich teas, on the other hand, are not only fun, but good for you! Why not go with something on the healthy side?
  6. It’s totally fun! A subscription to is not for you if you’re the really practical, need-to-buy-something-essential type of person. But this is totally for you if you’re looking to pamper someone you love, just because they deserve it.

So, what do you think? Ready to sign up? Be sure to leave a personal gift message on the checkout page. For more details, check out our FAQ page. For gifts, we recommended choosing from one of our 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month prepay options (and if you’re in the mood for treating yourself while you’re at it, sign up for our month-to-month subscription!).

Happy gift-giving!
