Cacao Tea from MiCacao. . . . .

I don’t eat a lot of chocolate. Mostly because in the area I live there aren’t many dairy-free chocolate store-bought options. Therefore, I choose a cup of Cacao Shells or nibs instead. That is exactly what happened recently with this cup! Cacao Tea from MiCacao is pretty awesome – I have to say! Herbal chocolate tea made from the shell of the cacao bean. This Cacao Tea is 100% cocoa based and is completely natural, preservative free, and without any artificial flavors or starches. It’s also Sugar-free, Organic, Gluten-Free, and Vegan-friendly! It’s naturally sweet, naturally chocolaty, naturally creamy, and naturally…WONDERFUL! Read More

Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. . .

I haven’t had too many Yerba Mate Matcha’s to date so I always welcome them when the come along. Recently I sipped on Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. In short, it was a pleasant sipping experience. But let’s expand on that a bit. I took 1 flat teaspoon of matcha to a tea bowl and mix with a couple of drops of water to make a smooth paste then whisked more water to fill my matcha cup. I followed the instructions on the company website. Personally – I could taste a Read More

DragonfruitFusion

Dragonfruit Fusion Teabags from Simpson and Vail.. . . .

June was National Iced Tea Month so I thought a few Iced Tea attempts were surely in order! To kick things off I brewed some Dragonfuit Fusion Tea Bags from Simpson & Vail. As many of you know Hibiscus scares me and Rosehips are creeping on that list as well. When I saw how intensely pinkish-red this was after brewing I ASSUMED it was going to be that dreaded tarty-sour Hibiscus I was so frightened of. BUT…I don’t know how S&V did it but it worked well here! It wasn’t overly tart or overly sweet. Perhaps it was the Green Read More

Turmeric Chai

Turmeric Chai from The Whistling Kettle. . . . .

The experience I had recently with Turmeric Chai from The Whistling Kettle is something I would like to share with you today! ‘ This isn’t your average chai! Why? Because it goes above and beyond with the addition of BOTH turmeric and Tulsi (holy basil). A little bit of each of those ingredients goes a long way! You can see and taste the specks of turmeric and the tulsi is just as wonderful! The dynamic duo surely makes this blend of flavors what it is. And it IS wonderful! This is a blend of black tea, ginger, and cinnamon, Tulsi Read More

Bright Eyed from Art of Tea. . . .

It’s been TOO LONG since my last cup of tea from Art of Tea. I was so excited to try Bright Eyed from Art of Tea recently and while I was checking out this herbal tisane in their online shop I noticed it’s currently out of stock but still wanted to mention it because it’s pretty awesome! What is described as an invigorating blend of turmeric, ginger, and other fragrant spices on the Art of Tea website and shop – this tea draws from Ayurvedic principles to energize and awaken your mind and body–all without caffeine! This was exciting to Read More
