Kumquat Cheesecake from 52Teas. . . . . .

One can always count on 52 teas for their unique blends. This is a winner and needs to actually be made into cheesecake as it would be delicious. They did a wonderful job of capturing the kumquat flavor without any of the bitterness that can be found in the rind. Fruity with hints of citrus and cream. The honey bush blends perfectly with the aforementioned flavors like a selfish ninja. You know it’s there but it won’t truly show. The liquid is a beautiful color.

organic Midnight Jasmine

Organic Midnight Jasmine Chun Mee from The Tea Guy

You can buy a jasmine tea almost anywhere you go in the world but if you want a quality Jasmine tea look no further. The leaves are a bit darker then some of the other Chun Mee teas I’ve had but its a perfect base to scent with jasmine.

T hose who have sensitive palettes or prefer lighter teas will definitely enjoy this Read More
