These Are A Few of My Favorite Teas!

7 hours 42 min ago
Continuing the Birthday Par-TEA (yep- you can call me a nerd now), I thought I’d share some of my favorite teas that I’m currently obsessing over.  Earlier this morning I wrote a post about my favorite vessel for brewing tea- The WALL Tea Infuser from Boreal Wildcraft.  So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to chat about the teas I’ve been enjoying with this brilliant mug. (1) Peeps Genmaicha from A Quarter To Tea. .  I recently did a review of this tea and am still drinking this tea on a daily basis.  I’m a HUGE fan of Read More

The WALL Tea Infuser from Boreal Wildcraft . . . .

11 hours 42 min ago
  Today is my birthday so I am taking over SororiTea Sisters with all things I love.  And I have recently fallen in love with the most amazing tea infuser that I can’t get enough of.  . . . . The WALL Tea Infuser from Boreal Wildcraft.   The WALL Tea Infuser is a simple yet creative idea.  So picture this. . .a high quality glass mug with a tea strainer infused into the  opening of the mug, an inch or so from the opening of the mug.  Quite a description.  This mug is just something to behold. . .

Lemon Black from Simpson & Vail. . . . .

Tue, 03/28/2017 - 23:00
The older I get the more I crave lemon flavored teas it seems. Recently we were sent the Lemon Black Tea from Simpson & Vail and I couldn’t wait to try it! As many of us already know the fruit from the Lemon evergreen tree has been used for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Simpson & Vail noted on their website that while fresh lemons and zest are most often used for culinary recipes, the dried peel is an important make-up of tea blends. Its lemony taste helps add flavor to teas and herbal blends, as well Read More

Passion Fruit Na Pali from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company. . . . . .

Tue, 03/28/2017 - 19:00
My cousin, a sailor in the Navy, and I have one big thing in common. I can guarantee you it’s not our skill at feats of endurance and strength (hi, he’s a sailor and I’m a therapist), nor the nuclear-science minded brain (I have a master’s degree, but not THAT kind of master’s degree) or even our physical location (can you tell from my pale, pale Midwestern skin that I’ve never even stepped foot in his current state of residence, Hawaii?). Nope, my friends– it’s our love of tea. We only see each other once, maybe twice a year, but Read More

Banana Nut Bread from DAVIDsTea. . . . . .

Tue, 03/28/2017 - 15:00
I don’t usually gravitate towards banana flavored anything. I do, however, like banana nut bread and I also like chocolate covered frozen bananas. Banana flavor, though? Not so much. Alas, I was perusing DAVID’s website and decided to give it a try. I hoped that the banana wouldn’t be too sweet or artificial tasting and that the “nut” part would shine through because I absolutely adore anything and everything that is “nutty” (including people haha). Upon opening my tin I swear this was trail mix! If I put this in a baggie and handed it to you, you would most Read More

Eggnog Poundcake from A Quarter to Tea. . . . .

Tue, 03/28/2017 - 11:00
This was the third tea I tried from A Quarter to Tea. I got a small sample because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I do like a glass of eggnog during the holidays, but when it comes to the tea I was concerned it may be over spiced. I have had really good experiences with other flavored blends from A Quarter to Tea, though. However, I don’t usually go for white tea so this is different for me. I am more so into green, black, and occasionally oolong. I was really excited to try this one. It Read More

Get Out Of My Way from Oh You Tea’se. . . .

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 23:00
I’ve been pretty lucky when it comes to ‘female’ problems if you know what I mean. I don’t usually suffer from many ‘issues’ once a month like many other females I know. I’m grateful for that. However, not-too-long ago I wasn’t quite myself for about a week. I chalked it up as one of those times. You know…one of THOSE times. That’s when I grabbed Get Out Of My Way from Oh You Tea’se. Get Out Of My Way flavored black tea from Oh You Tea’se is for the times you want to scream “Get Out of My Way” at Read More

Hidden Meadow from BlendBee. . . . .

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 19:00
Hidden Meadow from BlendBee caught my eye as I starred at my stash of tea under my work desk recently. I opened the bag and mentally transported into that Hidden Meadow this tea speaks of. This is a flavored green tea folks! And a great one at that! It contains China Green Tea, sweet Marshmallow Root, creamy Vanilla, and fresh spearmint! This flavor combo makes for a creamy, dreamy, minty-fresh, sweet treat! It’s creamy upfront followed by a welcomed sweet-mint flavor combo and the mint lingers nicely well after the sip is complete. This is a fantastic flavored green! I Read More

Nonpareil Taiwan DaYuLing High Mountain Cha Wang Oolong Tea from Teavivre. . .

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 15:00
My daughter asked me what tea we were drinking tonight. When I told her the name of this one, I got quite a stare, followed by “All righty then.”  What a delight this was to make and to drink. The tea is gorgeous before you even steep it – tight, hard twists and knots of deep army green and the most delicious aroma. And then you steep it and those hard knots become giant green leaves packing the infuser basket and promising many more steeps to come. The tea is pale in color, but a buttery fragrance wafts from the cup. The taste is Read More

Butter Beer Black Tea from 52Teas. . . . . .

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 11:00
A few years back, my sister and I went on vacation. A Disney vacation. We went on the Disney Fantasy cruise for a week and then spent a week at Disney World. However, since we were already in Orlando, I insisted that we hit up the Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios. In fact, I told my sister I would not go on the trip at all unless she promised me that a visit to Hogwarts was in my future. I had many plans for our day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, one of which was to Read More

Oh Canada from DAVIDsTea. . . .

Sun, 03/26/2017 - 19:00
This rooibos “taste of Canada” tastes so much like maple syrup you could probably dunk waffles in it. And if I hadn’t given up processed carbs for Lent, I would absolutely do this and get back to you with how it went. Because I think this would work. It’s a super-rich, super-realistic flavor with lots of rooibos sweetness layered with it. There are also hilarious maple leaf sprinkles. They’re like Canadian fruity pebbles of overbearing Great White North patriotism. You’d drink this tea in a giant flannel before going out to construct log cabins by hand. You’d shave in the Read More

Bourbon from Dammann Freres. . . . .

Sun, 03/26/2017 - 15:00
Growing up my stepfather would often have a nightcap. A hard drink on ice to relax just before bed. Sometimes it was Rye, sometimes it was Whiskey, sometimes it was Scotch, and on the odd occasion it was Bourbon. On one such occasion, he poured his drink and left it on his nightstand while he went to make a quick nighttime snack. That is when my 10-year-old me wandered into the bedroom where my mom sat on the bed. I went to my stepdad’s side and climbed in. Then, I looked at the drink then at my mom, back to Read More

Buttered Spiced Rum Green Tea from 52Teas

Sun, 03/26/2017 - 11:00
Gentle, warm, and soothing are 3 words I would use to describe Buttered Spiced Rum Green Tea from 52 Teas. Oddly…these are the same 3 words that 52 Teas used to describe this tea, too! Organic ingredients include green tea, oranges, cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, nutmeg and natural flavors. 52 Teas doesn’t mess around! At least they don’t mess around with top quality ingredients. They might just have a little TOO much fun when it comes to blending the flavors but there’s NOTHING wrong with that, is there? No. I didn’t think so. As much as I hate the phrase Read More

Cache Cache from Lupicia. . . . .

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 23:00
“CACHE-CACHE” means “hide-and-seek” in French. I’m horrible at French so I’m grateful that I could find more about this on the Lupicia Site. Cache Cache from Lupicia is a tea where various flavors are hidden and found. Ingredients include Black tea, Sugar, Orange flower, Pink pepper, Artificial color, Gum arabic, Flavors. I remember back in 2014 – having tea envy – because LiberTeas sampled and reviewed this one back then. I’m excited it was available once again this past holiday season and I was able to get my hands on it, too! There seemed to be so many different flavor Read More

Nature’s Candy – Coconut Chamomile from Petali Teas

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 19:00
Fruit is nature’s candy– a phrase I heard said by many health-nut, earth-loving parents.  But it might just be true in the case of Coconut Chamomile from Petali Teas.  I got a taste of this blend from my Amoda Tea subscription. With rainbow colors and fun shapes, this tea almost feels like a handful of candies.  It includes green kiwi pieces, pink hibiscus, red rose hips, yellow apple pieces, almost-purple cherry slices, and bright white coconut. The fragrance of this tea blew me away as soon as I opened the bag, giving me a strong whiff of the fruity, sugary, Read More

Banana Milk Tea from Chatime. . . . .

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 15:00
Being sick as a kid was awesome. I don’t mean those times you were stuck in bed and full of aches, but those times you were too sick to go to school but not sick enough to have to be confined to your room. When you got to hang out, watch cartoons and of course, The Price is Right, and your food was hand delivered while you played. Plus, no pills to swallow. Instead you got Banana Medicine. You know what I am talking about. The bright yellow candy-like treat that you either loved or hated. I think it’s clear Read More

Macchiato Dream from Steeped Tea. . . . .

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 12:30
IIf you’re trying to kick the coffee habit, this tea might be a middle-ground in your transition to tea. It’s a low-key woodsy rooibos with coffee grounds inside it. You’re still getting those coffee notes, but also some wood notes, and a teensy bit of caramel. But not a lot of caramel — if that was your selling point, I’m not getting a lot of it here. The description of the tea is “bold caramel flavor with coffee beans”, but I’m getting a much mellower cup. The woodiness reminds me of clarinet reeds. My clarinet career was a spectacular failure, Read More

Blueberry Green Kukicha from Frontier Organic. . . . . .

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 23:00
When I smelled this tea, I knew right away I needed to make it into iced tea. I prefer fruitier teas cold for some reason. It smells like blueberries right away, and when you pour hot water over the tea, it really smells like blueberries! Kukicha tea is also known as twig tea. It’s prepared from the stems and stalks of the tea shrub. That’s exactly what this tea looks like, twigs with some dried blueberries in the mix. Twig tea, or Kukicha tea is a nutritional powerhouse. It has six times more calcium than cow’s milk, and more vitamin Read More

Pretty In Pink from Paper Box Goodies. . . . .

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 19:00
WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSE OF FEMININITY! This tea is — to start off — super-pink. It’s got that awesome magenta that only shows up when hibiscus is in play. Then, when you sip, it’s extremely sweet. It’s loaded with strawberries, hibiscus, and delicious Darjeeling. Which — as you know — means caffeine. My favorite vice. I drank the first half hot, which was like being embraced in dark pink satin sheets. A smoldering, you-go-girl type of experience. Then I decided to try it iced, so I threw ice cubes in the remaining half of the tea to give it a Read More
