Hello, tea lover! My name is Ingrid and I have a mild obsession with all things tea…and downtown abbey…and Paris. I’m originally from Brazil but have lived in the U.S. since I was 8 years old.

I’m not quite sure how my love of tea started but when I was maybe in high school, my mom and I started collecting teacups and would go to nearby tea rooms and have mother daughter dates. From there, I fell in love with all kinds of teas, the delicate and flowery china, the ambiance and overall culture that surrounds tea! And if you’re wondering why I focus only on herbal teas, well because I love the endless varieties and unreal taste combinations!

(PS if you’re more into the complexity and art of green and black teas mainly from China, then i’m not your girl. but I can recommend some people for you to check out if that’s your cup of tea!)

I’m taking this challenge upon myself to explore the wonderful world of herbal teas and share everything I’ve come to know about how versatile tea really is!

Happy steeping!
