Are you new to tea? Up until this point, if you’ve been a coffee drinker, you may be in for a bit of a shock. Tea connoisseurs already have everything they need to craft and enjoy the perfect cup of tea every time, but if you’re a newbie, you could feel a little lost. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with our tea starter kit, which includes everything a tea drinker could need.
The most important part of your tea journey is choosing the right tea to get you started. Not all tea is created equal, and you want to make sure that you choose something that not only fits your personality, but your needs and your taste buds.
There are so many teas that are perfect for getting your started on your new journey, but we’ve named a few of our favorites below.
- Happy Tea: This fruity and delicious tea is a delight to drink, plus it will boost your mood and reduce your stress. Everyone can use a little bit more happiness in a cup.
- Her Tea: We adore our Her Tea. Made with Oolong Tea, it’s a great everyday tea that’s delicious and healthy.
- Man Tea: Don’t worry, men. We didn’t forget about you. Our Man Tea is made from decadent black tea and is a great substitution for daily coffee drinkers who are making the change to tea.
Beginner Tea Kettle
Now that you have your tea, you need your tea kettle as part of your tea starter kit. Notice that we didn’t say tea pot—that’s something else. A Tea kettle is what you use to heat up your water. It typically sits on your stove with water in it, and once it starts boiling, it whistles. However, since you’re just starting out, you might want to get an electric tea kettle, instead. We love this simple, $15 option from Amazon, the Proctor Silex Eclectic Kettle.
Next, you need a cup or mug to hold your tea. Since at Your Tea we use teabags, almost any cup or mug will do. Choose something that is unique to your personality and that will encourage you to drink your daily cup of tea. We love all the adorable and unique mugs on Anthropologie.
No serious tea drinker can get by without a travel mug. After all, not all tea is enjoyed at home. If you want to get your tea to work, or to take it with you on long car rides, you need a mug. Thankfully, we have the perfect simple black travel mug for you. It’s watertight with a lockable lid. Plus, it retains the heat of your tea for two hours. If you want, we also have mugs in pink and copper as well.
The final piece of your tea starter kit is an e-book guide. Once you’ve made the move to tea, you’re already working on a healthier life, but at Your Tea, we always like to take you one step further. Get our Creating a Healthier You e-book to round out your new tea experience. You’ll be glad you did.
