Nature’s Candy – Coconut Chamomile from Petali Teas

Fruit is nature’s candy– a phrase I heard said by many health-nut, earth-loving parents.  But it might just be true in the case of Coconut Chamomile from Petali Teas.  I got a taste of this blend from my Amoda Tea subscription. With rainbow colors and fun shapes, this tea almost feels like a handful of candies.  It includes green kiwi pieces, pink hibiscus, red rose hips, yellow apple pieces, almost-purple cherry slices, and bright white coconut. The fragrance of this tea blew me away as soon as I opened the bag, giving me a strong whiff of the fruity, sugary, Read More

Yomogi from Amoda Teas November Subscription Box

Yomogi is the Japanese name for the herb, Mugwort.  (Yomogi is also a fun word to say, and I’ve been saying it all week since I tried this tea.)  There’s more than Mugwort in this blend, including Japanese black tea, green tea, and lavender.  The dry leaf smells most strongly of lavender, with subdued tones of nutty green tea beneath the floral tones.   Brewing instructions for this tea called for cooler water and short steep times, and I made a few infusions of this blend with successful results.  The tea brews light green/yellow in color, and tastes strongly of Read More

Herbal tea can be a great before-bed comfort, especially as the weather gets cooler.  Composed of sweet and savory herbs and naturally caffeine-free, it’s hard to go wrong.  Usually, my one complaint with herbal tea is that the flavor is mild or too delicate, but wow!  Was I proven wrong on this blend!  The lavender is so fresh, fragrant, and plentiful– it all but knocked me over when I first got a whiff of the dry leaf.  This is a tea with simple but powerful ingredients, each one vibrant and visible in the blend.   The health benefits of these Read More

Homestead Peach from Winterwoods Tea, part of Amoda’s Tea Box #VeganMoFo2016

Today’s prompt for Vegan MoFo 2016 is Multi-color. And with today’s tea, I think that fits perfectly. This tea is just gorgeous with all of the different color pop.  Truly a multi color tea if I have to say so myself! The tea of the moment here at Sororitea Sisters is Homestead Peach by Winterwoods Tea which was part of our Amoda Box. Homestead Peach by Winterwoods Tea is an herbal blend consisting of (mostly) organic ingredients…strawberry leaf, dried peaches, hibiscus, lemon peel, orange peel, rose hips, and peach extract. I was surprised at the more laid-back, mellow aroma that Read More
