Shades of Earl Grey / Let It Snow from For Tea’s Sake. . . . .

I have said it before and I will say it again…Earl Greys are just not my favorite. I don’t love citrus teas and Earl Grey is all about the citrus. Cream of Earl Greys I can get behind a little bit more given the vanilla/cream elements but I still am not a lover. To me they just seem too brisk and sharp. However, the idea of a London Fog always appealed to me. For those who are not sure what I am talking about, a London Fog is an Earl Grey tea latte with a splash of added vanilla. Simple Read More

Love Tea #7: The Fifty Shades of Grey of Teas from DAVIDsTea. . . . .

Dear David’s Tea, What happened to Love Teas 1-6? Did you kill them, David? If so, how? If not, where are they? Are they okay? Can I check in on them? But, David, between you and me, I’m glad they’re out of the picture. Because this #7 is a delight. It’s like Valentine’s Day in a tea. Chocolate. Strawberries. Roses. You hit all the high points, plus it genuinely tastes good. Did you see this in my wish list, David, and magic it into my Sororitea Sisters care package? Are you stalking me in addition to murdering your previous teas? Read More

Tomato Basil-Green Tea Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Tea

Millie’s Savory Teas offers a unique type of tea- a savory one.  I’ve tried their Spicy Tortilla and Thai Lemongrass offers so I had high hopes and expectations of this one. Instead of creating sweet or more main stream teas, Millie’s Savory Teas has created a line of teas that offers more of a green tea broth mix. Each flavor has a robust veggie overall feel with the complimentary spices creating a delightful savory experience. Right off the bat, I was impressed with how this tea smelled.  I could really smell a familiar tomato soup like freshness.   Brewed up Read More

Green Defense from Tocha Tea. . . . . .

Every time I look at this tea’s name — “Green Defense” — I automatically change it in my mind to “Green Defense Against The Dark Arts.” You know, a tea that Harry Potter would drink to fortify himself against mind attacks from Voldemort. Tocha Tea’s site says that this tea “stimulates your senses while supporting overall wellness.” The description is unclear about the use of the word “defense.” Is it a defense against… sickness? Sadness? Malaise? ENNUI?* * (“Ennui” is a favorite word in my very nerdy family. It’s a French term that means “existential dread” and/or “boredom with one’s Read More

Turmeric Lemon Ginger from Yerba Buena Tea Co. . . . .

I try to incorporate turmeric in my diet everyday for all of the amazing health benefits, so I was so happy to try this tea. And in my opinion ginger makes everything better so I had a feeling I would love this blend. The first thing I noticed is the beautiful yellow color right away. They aren’t shy with the turmeric. As soon as i poured the hot water over the tea, I got the most wonderful smell. I could smell the lemon and the ginger and it was very soothing. This blend also has lemongrass and whole black peppercorns Read More
