So many tea moments waiting in your tea cupboard…

What’s in your tea cupboard? So many people have quite a few teas and tea infusers. Below you’ll see our true confessions of our tea cupboards. We recommend you pull them out and sort through your teas – in sealed bags – great!  And less than a year old – super!  Some of your fresher ones may make great new custom blends – let your imagination go – berries and chamomile, earl grey and white rose?

And by the way where do you buy your tea – what’s your favourite tea shop? We love to hear and our readers too for great new sources for wonderful teas.

Now, for the tea moments 🙂

That first sip of tea from a freshly made cup of tea is so relaxing and rejuvenating and take a few simple and essential ingredients:

  • hot water
  • your favourite tea
  • tea infuser cup or Libre Tea glass
  • milk and sugar if needed
  • a little time

And a loving and grateful intention.

Enjoy your tea moments – remember the simple pleasure of a hot fresh cup of tea – and with your Libre tea glass infuser you can enjoy these moments anywhere, anytime.

At Libre, we prefer loose tea as it contains more flavour and holds the flavour longer. As well, loose tea can be re-steeped multiple times, giving you more value for your money – green teas can be steeped 2-3 times, oolong often up to 5 times, even black tea can be steeped at least 2 times. Pictured here is one of Wendy and Cindy’s tea cupboards 🙂

A reference guide for suggested steeping times for various teas and tisanes that will help you create a wonderful refreshing and rejuvenating cup of tea for a relaxing and nourishing tea moment.

    My favorite tea shop is TeaSource ( I have probably spent way too much money there and I’m always excited to find restaurants that serve their tea.

    My favorite tea shop is Distinctly Tea in Stratford, Canada. Finding that green inserted building front among the brick brightens my day. I’m only there once a year so I make the trip worth it!

    I actually have quite a few online sources but I love Tea Gallerie and Nature’s Guru the best. I will occasionally get bagged tea bags at my local Kroger if I see something different to try but I generally get the more exciting creations from online tea shops.

    My favourite tea shop is Nikaido, but I love exploring other tea shops and trying out new teas. Thanks for the chart, very helpful!

    I don’t have a favorite tea shop (insert sad face here). I pretty much buy tea from the grocery store.

    Living in a small community, I am very blessed to have access to a David’s Tea at our local mall. I do enjoy their teas but it would be lovely to have a local teahouse as well for more curated teas. Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers :).

    My favorite tea shop was actually the first tea shop I had ever been too. I went with my husband on a business trip to Taiwan. I couldn’t tell you the name of the shop, because I am sure I couldn’t pronounce it, but the tea sampling was amazing. We still have some of that loose leaf tea and a beautiful tea set. It always brings back such wonderful memories from our trip.

    I like David’s Tea but there is a cute local shop called Sweet Bottoms that we love to go to.

    TeBella Tea Company in Tampa is my fave, they have large selection of loose leaf teas, fair trade and organic sourced.

    Tablehurst Biodynamic Farm in Forest Row. All organic food and drink, they even grow some of thrie own herbal teas – organic bliss!

    There is a lovely cafe next to a sowing shop and Pub in Ardingly, Sussex and is run by a lovely lady called Joe. Organic yumminess awaites and a visit is not complete without having a slice of cake lovingly made by Joe herself. Grummy Mule coffee and a great selection of organic teas.

  15. Ashtar


    Silo in Brighton is a friendly and relaxed place to pop in for herbal tea. There are also a cafe and restaurant and have zero waste making them a very eco friendly establishment. Great cake too!

    I buy my oolong & green tea from a local Japanese grocery store. Thanks for the tea chart info, that is very helpful. I did not know that you can reuse the loose tea so many times! That’s awesome.

    I want to start drinking more tea with the cool weather coming. My favorite shop might well become azure standard Co op.

  18. Mary Bearden


    I have several online stores I get tea from that is really good such as Adiago Teas and Teatulia Teas. They have some really nice Lavender Tea blends that are so delicious and they relax me a lot more than even the chamomile teas. I have gotten really fond of Lavender flavored tea.

  19. Wanda

    For oolong tea I go to Aroma tea House!
