U Matcha Single Sips from The Republic of Tea. . .

It’s that time of year, when you long for tea but the thought of a hot cuppa after being out in the heat and humidity makes you cringe. Republic of Tea to the rescue! After gardening a while, I needed to hydrate. I reached for the convenient single serving pack and added it to a glass of cold water and used my aerolatte to stir the heck out of it. These packs are intended for use with a 16.9 ounce water bottle (or 8 ounces hot water if you aren’t broiling like I am right now!) so you can have Read More

fenugreek

Fenugreek Tea from Republic of Tea. . . .

I’ve never had fenugreek tea, and I don’t think I’ve ever had it as a seasoning in food either, so I had no expectations when it came to this tea. But I am a huge fan of The Republic of Tea. I love all their teas, and I love reusing the tins that their teas come in. While my water was coming to a boil, I smelled the tea bag as you do, and I noticed a very pleasant cinnamon smell. Things were definitely looking up for this tea adventure. I made my cup of tea, and when I took Read More

Pineapple Ginger Green Team from Republic of Tea. . . .

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I am a huge fan of The Republic of Tea. I love every flavor I’ve tried, and I love the tins that it comes in. Although I have been cutting caffeine out of my life, this morning is a grey, rainy dreary morning and I needed a little kick. I usually like my fruity teas cold, but this was the only caffeinated tea I had, so I brewed myself a warm cup. This tea is amazing! It tastes really good warm, I’m enjoying it which is a surprise to be honest! The ginger Read More

raspberryleaf

Raspberry Leaf from Republic of Tea. . . .

Raspberry leaf comes in a round sachet. It smells just like banana, but this tea is made from raspberry leaf.  Brewed up with boiled fresh water, this tea just still has a banana like aroma. One sip and this tea tastes  just like you are eating a fresh banana. I tried this tea on two different occasions. I still couldn’t taste any raspberry or any of the flavors that a few of the other Sisters got. . . . for me I could only taste banana. I tried to enjoy this tea. I really did but unfortunately, raspberry leaf isn’t for Read More

grantham breakfast blend

Have a cup on Lord Grantham with Downton Abbey Tea Blends #RebpulicofTea

Grantham Breakfast Blend is one of the Downton Abbey themed teas from The Republic of Tea.  This blend is built from a strong assam base with added ginger, meant to be masculine and just a touch fiery.  The ginger came to life right as I poured hot water on the leaves, surprising me with an almost-chai smell for a moment.  As the tea steeped and cooled, the assam really took the lead, providing deep and malty black tea tones. This tea echoes Lord Grantham, pictured on the tin, clad in upper-class white-tie attire.  Both the man and the tea are Read More
