deacaf momo

Decaf Momo from Lupicia. . . .

Before going into this, I want to preface this review by stating (1) I don’t usually like decaffeinated blends and (2) I tend to usually not enjoy Lupicia’s black base. So, this is not a tea I would have ever picked for myself despite enjoying other Momo teas, but it was shared with me by a tea friend and for that reason alone, it is worth a try. Alright, so let’s get started. Decaf Momo is a white peach tea on a decaffeinated black tea base. The smell of both the dry and steeped blend is mouthwatering, like a juicy Read More

Mayan Hot Cocoa from The NecessiTeas. . . .

Mayan Hot Cocoa implies chocolate and spice. Lots of cinnamon and cayenne pepper. That is what I am looking for with this blend: the perfect balance of creamy cocoa and hot spices to make for a comforting treat. I want this to take me back to my childhood when I would come in from playing in the snow with my siblings to find a tasty cup of hot chocolate, with sometimes just a bit of a kick, waiting. Boosting that nostalgia factor is the addition of mini-marshmallows in the dry leaf that puts this off to a good start. I Read More

0008_Mango-Green

Green Tea Mango from Story Of My Tea. . .

This tea comes with a delightful “HELLO!” on the packaging. A tall thin envelope complete with a greeting from the tea itself: “Hello, I am the most delicious and energizing Green Tea Mango iced tea you will ever taste!” Well tea, if you are excited, I guess I am too! The conversation doesn’t stop there though. This tea goes on to say “People say I am *Smooth *Sweet * Tropical. I contain caffeine. I am made of Chinese grown sencha, mango flavor and sunflower blossoms”. So that was pretty informative. I opened the package and to my surprise, this was Read More

mint sencha tea

Mint Sencha Green Tea from Pique Tea. . . .

Well this was shocking. Mint. Sencha. Green Tea. All of these things are green and so all of these things would indicate GREEN powder was hidden inside the little brown tea packet. There is even a green stripe on the package to drive the point home. So I was certainly surprised when I dumped the powder out of the package only to find a substance that resembled golden turmeric in my teacup. Since the instructions simply said to dissolve in warm water, I topped the yellow powder with water that was 170F. With just a little bit of a stir, Read More
