On the Fourth Day of Christmas 52Teas sent to me. . . .

Mon, 12/18/2017 - 00:00
On the 4th Day of Christmas, my true love (I mean…52 Teas!) gave to me Peach Blackberry Crumble Black Tea! There are two ingredients in this blend that are my favorite when combined: peach and cinnamon pieces! Of course, there are also whole blackberries in here which definitely adds a unique twist, but the cinnamon and peach together are one of my favorite combos. This is obviously the fourth tea in this box and right now they are 4/4…I’ve loved them all! Every morning I scratch off the stickers and I’ve been so excited to try each tea and I Read More

Cotton Candy from DAVIDsTEA. . . .

Sun, 12/17/2017 - 14:01
So I just have to say, when you’re sweet tooth is crying out for a treat…THIS. TEA. IS. AWESOME!! DAVIDsTEA offers plenty of dessert flavors from Red Velvet Cake to Birthday Cake to Lime Gelato to Banana Nut Bread and the list goes on and on. They all capture their namesakes to varying degrees though none quite mimic the flavor of their inspiration quite like Cotton Candy. This tea tastes as if someone just melted down cotton candy in my mug, which in theory should basically taste like someone tossed a bunch of sugar in the cup but this is Read More

On the Third Day of Christmas 52Teas sent to me. . .

Sun, 12/17/2017 - 00:00
On the third day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me….Chocolate Hazelnut Strawberry Honeybush tea! When I scratched the label off of this one and started to be able to make out the name, you should have seen my face! I didn’t get a chance to try this blend back whenever it was available at 52 Teas because I don’t believe I had heard of the company yet. The other day I saw someone mention it on Steepster and I was really interested in trying it and wondered if I would ever get the chance. Imagine my shock when I Read More

On the Second Day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me. . .

Sat, 12/16/2017 - 00:00
On the second day of Christmas, 52 Teas gave to me…. Holiday Marmalade Green Tea! I have been really excited to dig into these teas. With Day 1, I actually had opened it on the 1st of December, not realizing that we were starting these on December 12th! So, I kind of got a little “teaser” at the beginning of the month and have been counting down the days till I could officially start. One thing I really enjoy about 52 Teas as a company is that their blends are always so unique. I feel like a lot of tea Read More

Buddha’s Best – A Quarter to Tea . . . .

Fri, 12/15/2017 - 19:09
Hello, readers, I am here again to talk about yet another rose blended tea. Which if you are new to my reviews I will fill you in quickly, I adore rose in just about everything. So it is not surprising that I was ecstatic to try out this new blend. First and foremost, this tea is a simply made of a blend of black teas, rose petals, and tulsi leaf. Now I have had all three before in numerous cups but this cup was a bit different. First off, the smell is the rose tea smell I have become accustomed Read More

On the First Day of Christmas, 52Teas sent to me. . . . .

Fri, 12/15/2017 - 00:00
Every December we happily look forward to the Christmas teas that 52Teas puts together for their Christmas box. Our Sister will be giving us the daily low down on which teas made their way into the box this year .  . . . . The First Day of Christmas Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup Black Tea For the First Day of Christmas, 52 Teas gave to me….coconut crusted French toast with cardamom syrup! This was the tea of the week for June 15, 2015 and at that time I had not yet heard of 52 Teas, so I Read More

Apricot Vanilla Creme from Tazo Tea. . . .

Thu, 12/14/2017 - 12:00
Apricot Vanilla Creme, a white tea by Tazo, one that I had never seen prior to the arrival of a traveling teabox. My past experiences with Tazo have been nothing special but this particular teabag has me intrigued. I blame the “creme” since that’s one of those trigger words that catches my eye. “Vanilla” is another. So when I saw this, I knew it was a tea I wanted to try.’ I opened the teabag and the smell of stone fruit and vanilla filled the air. As per the recommended steeping parameters on the teabag, I steeped this for 3 Read More

The Lucky Snitch from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe and Curiosities. . . .

Thu, 12/14/2017 - 00:00
Riddle’s Tea Shoppe and Curiosities is an awesome Etsy store that sells many fandom-inspired goods. There is a big focus on Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts and Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit inspired teas, post cards, buttons, and other trinkets, though she explores other fandoms as well. Each item displayed beautifully in the images on her site. In fact, that is how I found this company, through the beautiful images strewn throughout Instagram advertising her products. For weeks I tried to buy her many tea samples but each Wednesday when she restocked, everything sold out so fast that I was unable to Read More

Bourbon Smoked White Tea – Embrew Teas. . . .

Wed, 12/13/2017 - 20:07
I am not going to lie but I was very wary of this tea for one of my first teas by Embrew, Creamy Honey Oolong, was one of my first negative reviews. But then again I chock that up to not liking honey. This tea surprised me, to say the least. For I haven’t had a close relationship with white teas but I did know that white tea leaves were the ones that lacked the most flavor. But not this tea blend, this tea had a depth and a smokiness that left me wanting cup after cup. Now as the Read More

1st Place Tea: Snowflake from Aromatica Fine Teas

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 19:23
Depending on where you live, you may have seen some snowflakes flying on the air this time of year, which would be the perfect time to brew up a cup of Snowflake tea from Aromatica Fine Teas. This is an award-winning blend, taking 1st place in the North American Tea Championships in 2011.  Thinking about tea championships puts some silly images in my head, like some kind of tea Olympics, with little packs of tea on a snowy downhill ski slope.  Anyway, the story is getting away from me. Like beautiful, white, creamy snowdrifts, this black tea is blanketed with Read More

The Unicorn! from 52Teas. . . .

Tue, 12/12/2017 - 12:00
For my 25th birthday, my family surprised me with a sweet table. An entire sweet table! Not just any sweet table though. It was a unicorn themed sweet table and it was amazing. So, you can be sure that when 52 Teas came out with a unicorn tea, I would be all over it. Lucky for me, I didn’t even need to place an order because I won a contest and this arrived at my door. I would say it was meant to be. This tea was inspired by the limited time frappucino from a certain coffee shop. It is Read More

Rose Chateau by The Love Tea Co

Mon, 12/11/2017 - 20:10
I steeped this tea at 200 degrees in about a cup of water for about four minutes. This is another selection from the Love Tea Company, who donates a quarter of their proceeds to mental health causes. Their teas also come in cute little reusable canisters! The dried leaf has rose petals and other flower petals too, it looks like. According to the ingredients list these could be hibiscus, calendula, or sunflower petals, which are all included in the blend! In addition, there’s green tea in here and some curled oolong bits and some pieces of dried fruit (which turn Read More

Apple Delicious from Love Some Tea. . . . . .

Tue, 12/05/2017 - 16:22
Well, this isn’t what I expected, and am I ever glad! When I saw the name “Apple Delicious”, I assumed this was a fruit tisane. I expected to open the pouch and find big chunks of dried apple and other fruits. Instead, the most gloriously dark green, thick, twisted leaves spilled out. The aroma was not the fake apple and berry flavoring I had expected, but instead – a lovely and light apple – REAL apple – scent wafted gently up. I looked up the company as I prepared to steep the tea and saw that this is hand harvested Read More

French #7 from Blue Hour Tea. . .

Mon, 12/04/2017 - 18:00
Don’t let the flowers fool you: this Earl Grey blend is POWERFUL. It’s packed to the gills with the Earl’s trademark bergamot, plus lavender and cornflowers. This blend packs a punch. DO NOT OVERSTEEP IT. Tired? The smell itself is so strong that it will wake you up immediately. Cranky? The flavor will get your gears in motion. Dead on the inside? The caffeine will give you a shove. This is like Earl Grey’s spunky hippie sister got into his tea stash and started messing around with it “I picked these today,” she whispers, dropping a handful of blossoms into Read More

Sir Rhuberry Oolongbottom from BlendBee. . . .

Mon, 12/04/2017 - 13:42
Tea has often been a solitary experience for me. It’s an opportunity for me to get lost in a cuppa, explore the aroma of the blend, and let the heat of the fresh brew melt away my thoughts. There are opportunities that allow tea to be communal in my life and I had that opportunity recently with a friend. One of my husband’s childhood friends is Korean and grew up with tea as a strong part of his daily routine. I had the opportunity to share Sir Rhuberry Oolongbottom from Blend Bee with him. This tea had a sweet aroma Read More
