24 Days of Tea Holiday Countdown – Day 23 from Teanzo 1856

It’s day 23 … are you finished with your shopping yet?  (Please don’t ask.)

GwynnOrnieFor today’s artistic inspiration, I am featuring this rustic heart ornament from Gwynn Thoma.  I’m not entirely sure, but it looks as though the panels were felted and then stuffed and hand sewn together.  It’s really lovely and I love the way it looks on my tree.  Since about 95% of the ornaments on my tree are all handmade, I love the way this ornament really seems to define that idea.  It looks simple and rustic, but I love the charm that it brings to my tree.

Taster’s Review:MintTulsi

There have been quite a few caffeine free tisanes in this Advent Calendar box from Teanzo.  Some have been hits and others misses.  Fortunately, this one is a hit!

I really like the combination of spearmint and tulsi.  The warmth of the tulsi and the cool, crisp notes of the spearmint offers a nice contrast.  The spearmint is refreshing without tasting toothpaste-y as the spicier notes of the tulsi help to reduce the impact of the mint.

Also nice is the light, lemony note from the lemon myrtle.  It’s a really uplifting flavor that brightens the whole cup.

It’s a pleasant combination of flavors that I found very enjoyable.  I don’t know if it works as a “detox” or not, but, I will say that this is one of the tastier “detox” teas I’ve tried.  It’s thirst-quenching and tastes good served hot or cold and it has a nice, natural sweetness to it that requires no additional sweetener.  Another bonus for the detox!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
