Bookish Product Review + Giveaway: NovelTeas Tea Tins


If you're a tea lover (like myself), you're in for a serious treat today, because I'm about to introduce you to my favorite tea shop in the whole world - a BOOKISH tea shop that sells incredibly delicious teas in stunning hardback size tins!!! So take a deep breath, brace yourself, apologize to your wallet in advance - and say hello to NovelTea Tins

I discovered NovelTea Tins on Instagram a while ago. I saw their amazing tea tins, went to their website and immediately purchased the Earl Grey one called "The Picture of Earl Grey" (get it?! Instead of The Picture of Dorian Gray?!! :D). NovelTea Tins folks were awesome enough to actually send me TWO of their GORGEOUS tins, along with a brewing device, fridge magnet and a bookmark. ALL OF IT LOVELY!!!  Read on to find out what I thought about the tea and then be sure to enter the giveaway Jorgen and I have put together for you!




The Picture of Earl Grey -a gorgeously aromatic, rosy Earl Grey blend. 
     I'm a big tea drinker and I love many different kinds of tea - from green tea, to fruity blends - but Earl Grey tea is most definitely my favorite. I love Earl Grey tea. I could drink it all the time.

I was beyond ecstatic to have discovered NovelTeas and The Picture of Earl Grey, because not only is this a favorite tea of mine, but it comes in a truly stunning collectible tin. The tin is so beautiful, it's hard to believe that it's just a tea container. It looks breath-taking on my shelf and everyone who visits, admires it. As you can see in the photos I took, it's really quite a large size tin - ever saw the B&N hardcover classics? They're about the same size as this tin. Inside it, there is a 3OZ bag of loose leaf tea (makes about 33 cups), and the best part is, when you run out of this delicious tea, you don't have to order another tin, you can just purchase a refill bag!

Now, let me tell you about how good this tea is. I honestly don't think I have ever tried a better Earl Grey tea. Like, ever. I like Tetley and I like the English Garden blend from Inspired by Jane, and I also really like the Harney & Sons Earl Grey tea, but I still like this one the best. I went through my first bag within maybe 10 days, because I got so addicted to the taste of this tea, I kept making excuses to brew another cup. It's just so aromatic and rosy, and leaves you with this incredibly smooth aftertaste. It's amazing!

NovelTeas has two other teas in their store - Don Quixotea and War and Peach - and they are working on adding one more, which will be Pride and Peppermint. I'm so exited for Pride and Peppermint, guys! I seriously can't wait! I really want to buy the other two tins as well, but that's going to have to wait till after we move. But it is going to happen, there's no way I am passing on that!

There's no greater pleasure than reading while drinking a cup of really good, aromatic tea. It makes for a phenomenal experience. And drinking a novel tea while reading a classic book, is just TOP NOTCH. I can't recommend NovelTeas enough. The founders of this company work extra hard to bring you the highest quality blends in the utmost unique tea tins you'll ever see, and they're just really sweet and kind folks. Be sure to check out their store and give their teas a try - I promise you, you won't regret!
