A Trio of Peach Teas from Beleave, Rishi, and Teavana. . . .

Who knew I had so many peachy teas in my cupboard?  Let’s look at a spontaneous peach tea trio! Pinkies Up Peach from Beleave Teas Leaf type: white tea This is a white tea with peach pieces and added flavors.  The dry leaf smells fruity and juicy without being artificial.  When brewed, the white tea base is smooth and buttery and pairs perfectly with the bright sweet peach overtones.  White tea and peach are a winning combination.  Black tea blends tend to get too tart or overbearing against the sweet fruit.  Pinkies Up Peach from Beleave would make a great Read More

Tranquility from Beleave Teas

Raise your hand if it’s been a tense few months, you guys (not just me? phew, good). I’ve been especially mindful of self care this past week, which of course in my home means a good cuppa. When I saw this tea arrive from fellow sister Nichole (aka CuppaGeek) on a particularly long and icky day, I knew just what I’d be brewing up. First things first: holy spearmint, batman.

I don’t think that this tea is a commentary on contemporary politics. OR IS IT? (It’s not. It’s so totally not.) Linguistics aside, this tea really is resplendently, lusciously decadent. This tea has a unique texture that I’m not sure I’ve Read More

Tranquility from Beleave Teas

Tranquility from Beleave Teas isn’t normally something I would grab off the shelf first but there is something about this herbal tisane that spoke to me.  After some rather long reflection and sipping I cam to the conclusion it was because of the vanilla dancing with both the peppermint and the spearmint that was what spoke to me the most. The chamomile was plentiful in this tisane but the mint and vanilla helped smooth it out and calm it down nicely.  The raspberry, papaya, and star anise played a subtle but appreciated part.  I noticed the wild cherry bark more Read More

My first infusion of this Holistic Hearts (Black) Tea from Beleave Teas was a lighter to medium black tea liquor in the cup and Read More
