Birthday Tea Party from Oh You TEAse!

I always enjoy a good vanilla blend. Whether its black tea, green tea, oolong…I almost always love it if it includes vanilla. This birthday blend by Oh You TEAs is no exception. It smells like vanilla cake and tastes that way too.

When I first opened the packet I had no idea what I was looking at. Upon further investigation (google), I learned that this is a mix of black tea and heather flowers! I didn’t know what heather flowers were so I googled that, too. Once I did I realized I have seen them many times! They are tall and purple with little buds. Interesting! A very unique ingredient.

This tea was very straightforward. I got what I was expecting: vanilla. I don’t know if I would say that there was much more to it than that, though. Aside from the heather flowers, which did not add much flavor, I cant say I detected anything other than black tea and vanilla bean. This is neither a bad thing or a good thing. The cup was quite enjoyable. If you want something complex, this is not the tea for you. But if you want a good ‘ol vanilla flavored tea, this would be perfect for you. Its sweet, smooth, and vanilla-y!


Here’s the scoop!

Nothing says birthdays like a classic vanilla cupcake. Think of the heather flowers as the sweet, delicate sprinkles. Some say this is better than the real thing because this treat is virtually calorie-free – have as much as you’d like!

Get Out Of My Way from Oh You Tea’se. . . .

I’ve been pretty lucky when it comes to ‘female’ problems if you know what I mean. I don’t usually suffer from many ‘issues’ once a month like many other females I know. I’m grateful for that. However, not-too-long ago I wasn’t quite myself for about a week. I chalked it up as one of those times. You know…one of THOSE times.

That’s when I grabbed Get Out Of My Way from Oh You Tea’se. Get Out Of My Way flavored black tea from Oh You Tea’se is for the times you want to scream “Get Out of My Way” at the top of your lungs, but can’t – you can sip this instead. This contains raspberry leaves and chamomile which are two of Mother Nature’s natural PMS symptom fighters. Pair those two with a black tea base and I was totally GAME!

I will say that it tasted like an herbal tea and a black tea joined hands and invited me to slurp on it. That’s exactly what I did. It was a satisfying herbal flavored black tea but more importantly it seemed to help get me out of the FUNK I was in. So I guess that means…MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, eh?

This tea couldn’t have come at a better time!

Emerald City from Oh You Tease

This tea is exactly what I needed today!

Work has been pretty stressful so I needed an easy going tea that would be forgiving (if i oversteeped) and wouldn’t taste bitter if I had to leave the brew to cool. I quickly grabbed this one, Emerald City from Oh You Tease, an Etsy Tea Shop that I instantly fell in love with.

Brewed up with freshly prepped water and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yielded an absolutely gorgeous take on a mint green tea blend. Strikingly on target with the perfect amounts of roasted green tea buttery richness with a hint of vegetal tones and mint. Refreshing, cooling, all you need in a mint green tea and more. I love how both ingredients are allowed to shine and one flavor isn’t overshadowing the other.

Very well done. Simple yet brilliant. Exactly what I was looking for today. I’ve infused the same leaves at least 4 times and I’m still loving the flavor!
