D’s Teas from 52 Teas . . . . . Diving into the New Permanent Line of Teas at 52Teas. . . . .

If you’ve been a loose-leaf tea drinker for any amount of time, you’re familiar with 52 Teas. And if you’re familiar with 52 Teas, you know that their constantly-rotating blends are in high demand– due to their limited-edition status, sure, but first and foremost thanks to their delicious sip-a-bility and seriously crave-able flavors. (Raise your hand if you’ve got a hoarded stash of 52 Teas somewhere in your tea cabinet. *raises hand*) All of this to say: to know 52 Teas is to love 52 Teas. And also to be kind of sad that once your favorites are gone, they Read More

cream

Cream from Adagio Teas. . .

Just the notion itself of a cream tea (meaning a full tea service, scones + jam + clotted cream, etc.) brings up all the good feels for me, you guys. During my brief study abroad stint in London in college, this was my regular treat-yo-self to myself– a book, cream tea, some quiet. So while this tea (aptly named “Cream”) from Adagio isn’t making me any specific promises including scones and jam, it certainly has some significant memories to live up to. And live up it does! It’s a lightly sweet, slightly vanilla-ish, mostly sweet-cream flavor that blends beautifully with Read More

Rainbow Sherbet from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

In my early tween years, I was lucky enough to have one of my best friends living right down the block. With our minor amounts of freedom (given our newly advanced age of 12), we were able to bike around our neighborhood to our hearts’ content, and often snuck a few extra blocks in to get to the local general shop just around the corner. Our favorite treats to stock up on? Big League Chew, and Mambos, of course– and one time, when we were feeling really adventurous: rainbow sherbet. Now, let me paint you a little picture real quick: Read More

Happy from Wild Leaf Active Teas. . . .

If you know me, you know I am ALL-IN when it comes to natural goodies. Tulsi tea falls squarely in this category, friends, and I’ll eagerly drink it up whenever I have the chance. Tulsi is an adaptogenic herbal tea, which means its herbal smarts adapt to support your body in the way that you need at that moment. (Remember, I’m not a doctor. I’m just riddled with hippie tendencies.) This particular blend from Wild Leaf boasts a balance of tulsi and chamomile with hints of lemon balm and rose petals. A true herbal, it brews up beautifully, and the Read More

Vista Blend from Plum Deluxe. . . . .

Some teas are workhorses. They’re made for caffeinating you, or calming you, they never let you down– but maybe they’re not the fanciest or most intricate. (I’m lookin’ at you, English Breakfast and Chamomile.) Some teas are fancy. Like, hand-me-my-monocle-and-top-hat, I Am A Very Important Person levels of fancy. (Oh hello, super delicate and intricate blooming white teas currently eyeing me up warily from the cabinet. You can tell I’m not fancy, can’t you?) Some teas are the perfect in-between. They’re intricately flavored with a perfect balance, but they’re also… comforting. They’re gonna be there for you, they’re not gonna Read More
