persianrose

Persian Rose from Tay Tea. . . .

Is this tea? Or flowers? Because by the looks of it, I just steeped up a bunch or lovely pink rose petals with maybe a bit of tea. Even when the tea was done steeping and all the color had been drained from the flowers, the bits of tea leaf was few and far between. So, a tea that is mostly flowers…well that isn’t necessarily a bad thing depending on how you feel about floral teas. Some people love them, others not so much. Full disclosure…I am on the “not so much” side of this debate. However, as far as Read More

White Chocolate Samoa from The NecessiTeas. . . .

After learning of The NecessiTeas, I was so excited to place an order. I just NEEDED to try all the amazing flavors the company offered. This is one of the teas that really caught my eye. Unfortunately it is also one of the teas that was sold out when I placed my order. Luckily I have a Fairy Godmother…or Fairy Godsisters, I should say. The smell of the coconut is what hits first. However, in flavor, the caramel takes over. It is a little bit chocolate but the caramel is what shines here. Coconut and white chocolate does contribute a Read More

Razzleberry Rooibos from 52Teas. . . .

I am always on the lookout for good caffeine-free options. Always. It seems like my cupboard is comprised of mostly black teas but I don’t want to be drinking cup after cup of caffeinated blends just before bed. So…the search is always on and I am always open to suggestions. Recently, I was browsing the 52 Teas site and noticed this tea, Razzleberry Rooibos, was still available in both large and taster size and since I had an unopened taster bag at home, I decided to try it out to see if it was a blend I might want to Read More

Lupicia

Soleil Levant from Lupicia. . . . .

These Lupicia teabags are wrapped in the most adorably festive wrappers. Little animals partaking in in Christmas festivities adorn each bag and it is delightful. What is not so delightful? The chemical sent of this Soleil Levant tea bag when I removed it from its packaging. Unfortunately that chemical scent carries over to the steeped tea as well. Drinking the tea, I get a muscat flavor first and foremost from the white grapes. That mixes with a pithy citrus which ties in to a bitterness that underlies the whole sip. I think this tea shows potential but using the suggested Read More

Blueberry from Disney Wonderland Teas. . . . .

Disney World, aka the Happiest Place on Earth, aka the place where I had a panic attack and cried for 4 hours. Everyone has their own memories and dreams about it. Yet, anyone who has been there has probably passed by these Disney Wonderland Teas hiding somewhere in the many gift shops strewn throughout the parks.And they aren’t confined to just Disney World, these teas can be found at most Disney parks and I have even encountered them at Disney stores. Plus, they are available all over the internet. If I am being honest, I never personally bought these teas Read More
