jings! crivvens! help ma boab!

Ben: Now we’ve been writing teatunes for a month or so, we’ve come to the end of our first batch of teas to review. teapigs have served us admirably – an old favourite, a twist on a traditional green tea and an introduction to the daddy of all teas.

We discussed between us who to try next and settled on trying some examples from Jing. We like to think we’re not swayed by marketing at all but the company’s lovely assistant who maintains the Jing Twitter account has been very chatty and amiable with us, pointing out some particular teas we might like. They also do a number of samples selections, an ideal way to sample a broad range of their produce and something that teapigs don’t really do.

We’ve made an order and hope to start plugging things sooner rather than later. The one I’m particularly looking forward to trying is the Jasmine Pearls green tea – I might even make that a priority.

Speaking of Twitter, are you following our account? We send notifications whenever we’ve made a new post so it’s the ideal way of keeping up to date. Lots of our followers are fellow tea lovers and providers too – there’s quite a chatty little community there.

Expect a new post soon!
