Peri Flower Blooming Tea – California Tea House

Hello readers! I am happy to bring you a tea that I have been dying to try, a blooming tea. I have not been able to for I also found them too expensive to buy. I mean I know that this is a tea that is not your normal loose leaf or bag but I always saw the “best selling” flowering teas to be about $10 a bulb. So I am glad that I finally got a chance to try this beautiful tea! Now, first off this tea was beautiful! And don’t worry I posted a video of it blooming Read More

Hillary Enjoys A Cuppa Chocolate Chai From California Tea House. . . .

I’ve mentioned at least a million times that I love Chai tea. It’s one of my favorite teas ever. When I saw the words chocolate and chai together, my heart skipped a beat. Chocolate is really the only thing that can make chai better in my opinion. I could smell the chocolate and spices through the bag and it just made me want a cup right away. This is an herbal chai, so no caffeine which makes me super happy, and makes this a suitable tea for any time of the day or night.  I brewed myself a cup, and the Read More

Imperial Gyokuro Genmaicha – California Tea House

Good morning everyone. Before I start geeking out over tea I just wanted to say thank you for letting me join the Sororitea Sisters! I look forward to discovering new teas and making friends with you all. Genmaicha. Once known as the poor mans drink among the Japanese people. A big thank you to the first monks (supposedly) who created this blend. Personally, this is in my top five favorite teas. If you have not yet given genmaicha a try I highly suggest trying some! A good tea session with genmaicha should start off with a whiff of the dry Read More

Chocolate Chai from California Tea House. . . . .

This herbal blend is a lovely cross between chai and hot chocolate. The chai is a non-aggressive but still flavorful blend of spices, including chicory root pieces, cardamom blooms, fresh-cut ginger root, whole cloves and peppercorns. The chocolate side of the blend is cocoa nibs, white chocolate pieces, and orange peels. I drank this straight (no milk/sugar/honey) and found it to be totally sweet. Both literally and figuratively (“sweet, maaaaaaaaaaaan”). It’s also, because it’s decaf, a great drink to give to a kid. My best friend’s daughter is always floating around, asking to have my tea, but the last thing Read More

Smooth Roasted Toasted-Genmaicha from California Tea House. . .

  The weather is gloomy and my sinus infection is going in full swing! Today calls for a tea that makes you relax and enjoy the moment. When I first started drinking and experimenting with loose leaf tea, California Tea House was one of the first places I made an order. I can’t remember exactly what I ordered but I can remember being so confused on how to brew each variety and wondering if I would ever learn how to brew loose leaf. Now 10 years later, I yet again have the opportunity to try their teas. And this time, Read More
