Teaposy Celebrate Gift Set Reveiw

"All Teaposy products are hand-crafted, giving each one its own artistic touch. With an elegant collection of hand-blown glassware to enhance the beautiful bloom of the tea, Teaposy offers a complete line of products to create a mesmerizing experience."

I was very luck and excited to receive a Teaposy Celebrate Gift Set for review from Importika. Teaposy not only makes delicious quality tea but it puts on a quality show while your tea brews. I am a tea lover. I always enjoy trying out teas. Especially in the summer time when tea always seems to taste the best.

My Teaposy Celebrate Gift Set came with an adorable 24oz daydream teapot is hand blown glass. It is cute. I love way it looks. It would be something I would leave out if I had guests. It has glass lid to keep on the teapot while poring. This will come in handy so I don't spill anything.
My Teaposy Celebrate Gift Set comes with 8 unique blooming teas and 2 loose leaf tea sachets. It comes with the following:
  • The lady fairy which is made up of jasmine and lily.
  • The heart of love which contains rose and lily.
  • The red song contains carnation.
  • The butterfly contains jasmine and amaranth.
  • The calendula contains calendula.
  • The crown me contains chrysanthemum, jasmine, and amaranth.
  • The let it snow contains chrysanthemum and coconut fruit fiber.
  • The falling water contains jasmine and calendula.
  • The spring sonatra sachets contain hibiscus, lilly, rose, lavendar, chinese globeflower, stevia leaves, and forget me not.
Over all. They were all awesome. My favorite wast the butterfly. It tasted like berry. It was delicious. I see why there is such a big buzz about this product. This is a wonderful product to have when you have dinner parties.
Directions for your Teaposy:
  • Place a teaposy in the teaposy glass pot.
  • Fill the pot with boiling water.
  • Wait 2-6 minutes and watch it bloom.
  • Your tea will reach your desired strength.
The directions are easy and are listed right on the box. You should have no issues when making you tea. And the teapot is rather easy to use as well.

Here is some other information listed at  Importika's website here: 

* Silver Needle White Tea
Only the finest tea from the Fujian province of China is used to create Teaposy blossoms. Silver Needle White Tea comes from the young buds of the tea plant and is the least processed of any tea, giving it a delicate flavor and making it rich in antioxidants. The tea is only harvested during peak seasons, with 80% harvested in the spring and 20% in the autumn. No matter when it is picked, all of the tea is processed and packaged within the same year, ensuring it can be enjoyed at the height of freshness. 

* Caffeine Content
Our Teaposy blooming teas are not decaffeinated. However white tea contains the lowest level of caffeine among all caffeinated tea or coffee drinks. A cup of white tea contains an average of 8-15 milligrams of caffeine while a cup of coffee contains 60-120 milligrams. 

* Individually Crafted
Every Teaposy is completely hand-crafted in the Fujian Province, from the tea fields to the final blooming work of art. First, the Silver Needle White Tea is harvested, dried, and withered for two hours at 212° to remove impurities. Then, it is sorted leaf by leaf and placed in bundles of equal length and weight. These tea bundles are then sewn together with jasmine, calendula, rose, lily, amaranth, camellia, chrysanthemum, or carnation flowers to form one of Teaposy's 8 patented blooming tea designs. 

* Naturally Infused with Jasmine
Teaposy never uses artificial jasmine oils to flavor the tea, rather, each teaposy is naturally and repeatedly infused with the scent and flavor of freshly picked jasmine flowers. The delicate white jasmine flowers are hand-picked at their the peak blooming time of 1pm. Then, they are mixed with teaposies for hours so they can naturally absorb the jasmine scent. This adds a subtle floral taste to the Silver Needle White Tea and creates an intoxicating bouquet. 

* Hand-blown Glassware
Every piece of Teaposy glassware is created by hand, so no two are exactly alike. Designed to enhance the visual experience of the teaposy blossom, glass artists work meticulously to ensure maximum clarity and a spacious viewing area. The entire collection is adorned with Teaposy's elegant logo, and several sizes and styles are available to fit any occasion. 

* Heat-resistant
Made from Borosilicate glass, Teaposy glassware can withstand temperatures between -4° and 300° F. With high and low temperature durability, Teaposy Glassware can be used for brewing, as well as storage in the refrigerator. 

* Earth Friendly
All Teaposy glassware is made from 20% recycled material, offering a beautiful and environmentally conscious tea experience. And, since teaposies themselves are completely natural, you can enjoy some of the world's finest tea in its purest form. 

* Packaging
Individually packaged with care, Teaposy glassware is not only beautiful when brewing, but also in the box. Teaposy boxes feature original artwork and high quality images that capture the clarity and elegance of the glassware itself. Whether on display or given as a gift, Teaposy boxes reflect the art and craft of Teaposy. Not only are teaposies beautiful when brewed, they also come beautifully packaged. Teaposies are individually vacuum-sealed for freshness right after they are completed, giving them a long shelf life, and it is also adorned with the Teaposy logo and an image of the blossom. All varieties of teaposies are also presented in sophisticated and eye-catching boxes. 

* Safety Standards
Each and every Teaposy product must meet world-class safety standards before leaving China. The tea is checked at the Tea Quality Supervision and Inspection Center and Entry-Exit Inspection personnel perform a Quality Safety Analysis. While the FDA does not have standards for imported tea, these inspections ensure that Teaposy meets the strict standards of Europe and Japan.

I would recommend Teaposy products to my friends and family. Overall I was satisfied with my experience ans will continue to use Teaposy products in the future.

This would be a great gift for a tea lover. Mother' Day is right around the corner! There are many different wonderful Teaposy Sets at Importika.
