Lemon-Lime Meringue Kukicha Green Tea from 52Teas. . .

I was having a pleasant morning, sipping on this Lemon-Lime Meringue Kukicha Green Tea and eating my breakfast. Things were going well until my two dogs decided to fight over a cookie under my chair. When we pulled them apart, one had a bloody nose and we didn’t realize right away so blood got everywhere, especially when she started sneezing causing splatters on the walls, floor, and even my sister and her husband. She was totally fine but it looked like a tiny murder happened in our house so this tea got put aside for a bit while we attended Read More

Cucumber Mint Limeade White Tea from 52Teas. . . .

White teas and I have been best friends as of late.  And this tea is the reason why. I love the fresh flavors that a lime can bring to a beverage or really food in general. Add in the refreshing flavors of mint, crisp notes of cucumber, and soft subtle floral base of a white tea, and you have yourself a tea to remember. Because this is a white flavored tea, I prepped this tea up at 170F and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes.   After that, I allowed the tea to cool for a few minutes, allowing Read More

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. When you brew be sure to use something clear. The rose color is quite a Read More

Boo-Berry Cotton Candy Zomba Tea from 52Teas. . .

Who else but 52Teas would make this amazing breakfast treat into a Halloween inspired tea!?!?! Boo-Berry Cotton Candy Zomba Tea is a blend of green tea, blueberries, and natural flavors and is a reblend from a few years ago.  When you first open this pouch of Halloween goodness, you are pleasantly greeted with this resounding blueberry sweet-almost vanilla – aroma.  Really lovely and one that just screams, brew me up! I anxiously prepped up water per the parameters on the package and allowed the tea to cool for a few minutes. I was literally just starting at the timer willing Read More
