A Rainy Day and a Cuppa – Storm’s a Brewin’ – Bumble Teas

Here on the coast of Mississippi, Hurricane Cindy is rolling through, bringing a lot of rain and thunderstorms my way. And I love it! I have always thought that I should be in a rainy state like Washington or even in the country across the pond called England. And what is better to do in this weather than to grab a book and a cup of tea? So I thought that this would be a great opportunity to try out a tea that is all about those perfect rainy days. Now on the first sip, this tea settles on my Read More

Creamy Honey Oolong – Embrew Tea

I will start off this review by saying that I am not the biggest honey fan in the world and I was not at all excited to review this tea. But, who knows I may be surprised. Now the tea was definitely creamy not an ounce of bitterness to be had. Now the only thing that I didn’t like about this tea was, you guessed it, the honey. Now I will say this, the main reason why I don’t like honey is because of the sickly sweet taste it has. And that taste is overpowered when it comes to grocery Read More

Emily Dickinson’s Jasmine Tea Blend – Simpson and Vail. . . .

Now I have to start this off by saying that I am a sucker for author inspired tea blends. So it goes without saying that you are sure to find me reviewing more in the near future. Which shouldn’t be surprising since what is better than a cup of tea and a good book? Now I think that this tea was simply delightful. It is not too strong and not too subtle, it has a perfect balance in my opinion. As a matter of fact when I was drinking this tea it was like it started to clear my head. Read More

A Cuppa That is Akin to Wilde’s Garden – NovelTea’s Wilde’s Rosy Tea Blend

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”  ~Oscar Wilde And that is exactly how I felt about this tea. I wanted to enjoy over and over and I couldn’t get enough! And as the title suggests, I feel that when I drink this tea I am enjoying this beverage in a garden full of freshly bloomed roses while the door that leads into the garden has some jasmine incense wafting out of it. But before I get into my full review here are the specifics. This tea Read More

Be wary of the Wendigo …… Wendigo Green Tea

For those of who know the legend of the Wendigo (and those of you who played the video game Until Dawn) know that the tale is a terrifying one. To sum it up, a Wendigo is a creature that has an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Yes, it does sound grizzly but this tea is the exact opposite! The Wendigo green tea is definitely a lot more pleasant than the creature by the same name.  It has a fresh earthiness to it but it is not too in your face. And since I am more partial to black tea myself Read More
