What’s a great gift for a tea lover?

Last year, I posted a little article with gift ideas for tea lovers. It was a pretty well-received post, and I still see people drop by it every now and then. I can only hope that some well-deserving tea lover has received a gift they love thanks to that post!

Does Tea Hydrate or Dehydrate You?

Have you ever been told that tea dehydrates you? Whoever told you is wrong.

The claim that tea dehydrates is a long-standing myth.
