Because life’s too short for average tea.

As a Melbournian, it might be an offence to admit that I don’t drink coffee. The coffee culture in Melbourne is so strong, with many a self-confessed coffee-snob just as quick to sing the praises of a great cup of brew as they are to return a cup of coffee which doesn’t quite hit the mark. However, with the amazing selection of tea available on the market, I don’t feel like I’m missing out. These days, tea is becoming just as popular as coffee, with many cafes starting up which just serve tea.

For those of you who are as excited by tea as I am, you are going to love Mr Earl, a new Australian online business changing the way we buy and think about tea. Not just an online destination to buy tea, founder Emily Stone is determined to make Mr Earl the must visit online destination for tea lovers. Not only can you share your thoughts about your favourite tea flavours, but you can sign up for Mr Earl’s subscription service which delivers a carefully curated selection of tea right to your doorstep every month. You can then jump online and rate and review each type and buy full sizes of your favourites.

The debut selection sees classic teas reworked with a modern touch. For lovers of black tea, you will enjoy Deitea’s take on Earl Grey tea. For those hot summer days, try Informal Tea Co’s Organic Fresh Mint tea which would be perfect with some ice and lemon. For heath nuts, you can’t go past Kenko’s Macha Green Tea which has 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea!

Mr Earl’s subscription service is the perfect gift for lovers of tea as it gives them the opportunity to try new flavours each month. With options to subscribe for one ($20), three ($45) or six months ($78), there’s something for every budget.

So if you are passionate about tea, or just want the opportunity to try a little something new in your teapot each month, make sure you checkout Mr Earl and get yourself a subscription!Screen shot 2013-12-14 at 7.48.35 PM
