I love social media and using it to express my tea obsession, but I resisted making a TikTok account until recently. Unfortunately, a mysterious person had already taken the name ‘teaformeplease’. I messaged them explaining that it was the name of my blog and even offered to compensate them for it, but there has been no response. The nerve! I did an Instagram poll to decide on an alternative, and the winner was ‘therealteaformeplease‘.
I’ve only made a few videos so far, but it’s a fun app to use. I’ve discovered a few other tea-related accounts that have made it much more engaging. Here are some tea TikTok accounts that you should be following:
Jenn the Tea Witch
You might recognize Jenn from Tea Leaves and Tweed, a regular feature in my Friday Roundups. This account is connected to her other blog so it is not entirely tea-focused. There’s still plenty of tea videos to enjoy. I’ve learned so much about Gaelic and folk traditions just by watching her fun content.
Nio Teas is a Japanese tea vendor and one of the most prolific video creators I follow. They’re the ones you want to watch to learn more about matcha, sencha, or gyokuro. My favorite ones are shot in the beautiful tea fields where they source their teas.
A real-life nun who is passionate about tea is the last thing I expected to find on TikTok. Her videos are educational and entertaining. This is account is the one that made me really start thinking about utilizing the platform.
Friday Afternoon Tea
Friday Afternoon Tea is a Seattle based shop that I’ve been following on Twitter for a while. Their TikTok is a balance of informative, silly, and behind the scenes at the shop. I’m a big fan of Friday’s bright purple hair and easy-going approach to tea.
This account is run by the owner of a small tea shop in Pennsylvania. Her videos are so popular that people sent me news articles about her. She spills the tea on all kinds of topics in her short and snappy videos. I especially love the mug adoption center idea.
Tea with Jann
Jann is one of my favorite tea-focused YouTubers, so it was only natural that she start making TikTok videos too. My favorite video she has posted is a peek at her MASSIVE collection of antique turquoise Aynsley teacups. They’re so beautiful!
Harney & Sons
There aren’t many tea companies putting out TikTok videos but Harney & Sons have been doing a great job. I really love their use of trends and the behind the scenes content they share from their factory. It reminds me of how much I miss visiting their NYC store.
The Tea Critter
The Tea Critter is one of the first tea TikTok accounts that I found. Chill and cozy fireside gongfu shots with relaxing music were what drew me in. I also really love catching glimpses of their adorable axolotl, cat, and betta fish. So cute!
Are there any tea TikTok accounts that I missed? Let me know about them in the comments below!
So fun! I’ve been back and forth on whether I should join tiktok (or whether I’m too old) but I’m feeling like I should join just for the tea content!
You should join! You don’t have to post to enjoy content (I didn’t for a long while) and even then, I don’t post daily! Your fellow teathusiests would love to have you! -TheTeaCritter 🙂
Oh my gosh, thank you so much for the shoutout, that’s so sweet of you! I’m glad you’re enjoying my content – I’ll def. try and post some new tea videos soon!
You’re welcome! I was so happy to find your account. 🙂
