Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. . .

I haven’t had too many Yerba Mate Matcha’s to date so I always welcome them when the come along. Recently I sipped on Organic Yerba Mate Matcha Tea from The Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. In short, it was a pleasant sipping experience. But let’s expand on that a bit.

I followed the instructions on the company website. Personally – I could taste a Read More

This tea reminds me of a citrus chai, but with a warm, Read More

It’s been a while since my last Lapacho so I’m long overdue for a good one! I’m so happy the one I tried recently was Lapacho Orange and Vanilla Tea from Kent Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. Lapacho, Orange Peel, Orange Slices, Vanilla Flavoring are the ingredients in this decaff offering and boy-oh-boy was it a flavorful one! It was citrusy, sweet, creamy, and even had a slight woodsy-spice towards the end of the cup as it cooled. It was reminiscent of a creamiscle with a bit of a twist. Lapacho is one of the herbals that you infuse the Read More
