Millie and I like to have tea time.
Apparently I like to have tea time while editing photos for writing a post about tea.
I have been looking for a good, local, organic tea. I've also been looking for Oolong tea, which I've read has great positive effects on metabolism and is tasty too.
I found a great one at the Sno-Isle Food Co-op.
This brand is made right here in Seattle and it is organic.
Well, packed in Seattle. It doesn't say on the box where the tea is grown, but further research found that they are grown in many places but are certified Fair Trade. Another check in the awesomeness box!
The box (the tea box, not the awesomeness box) is 100% recycled and the tag & string are attached with a knot and not a staple. Which I really like. I mean, who wants a little piece of metal from questionable origins soaking in their tea? Ew.
This tea is also really, really good. I had some decent oolong at a friend's house a while ago and this beats the pants of it. It has a mild flavor but isn't wussy. They don't add a bunch of other flavors with it so it is what it is...no foofiness.
Not that foofiness is bad, but sometimes you just want your tea straight up.
So, if you're into tea and like to buy local, fair and organic, now you know you have a Choice! Choice Organic Tea. Many varieties can be purchased at the Sno Ilse Food Co-op and also online on Choice's website. I'm sure they can be found other places as well. I bet if you ask your local grocery to carry them they might just think that's a fabulous idea.
**please note that the Choice Organic Tea company doesn't know me and didn't ask me to write a review and tell y'all how great they are!**
