Pig Sprinkles in Tea! Fig Flavored Tea from Tea and Tins. . .

PIG SPRINKLES!! CUTE LITTLE PINK PIG SPRINKLES!! Okay. I am done now. Darn sprinkles get me every time. I see them in a tea and nothing else matters, the tea is just tossed into my cart. Here, however, I was intrigued by the fig flavor and was personally quite a fan of the name. This tea is all sorts of kitschy and I love it. Now, I should probably start off by saying that I don’t think I have ever had a fig but for some reason fig jams and fig teas and other fig-flavored foods call to me. So, Read More

Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel from Tea and Tins. . . . .

Upon first glance, you might be thinking I’ve maybe misplaced my calendar. Or I’m a time-traveling, tea-drinking reviewer who has accidentally jumped from the winter holiday season to late spring without realizing it. I assure you– I am not. (Although HOW COOL would that be. If there’s a Time Lord out there reading this in need of a new companion: hit your girl up.) But I’m also not such a purist that a Hanukah-themed tea can’t occasionally find its way into my cup post-Daylight Savings Time, and spoiler alert: I’m glad it did! This dry leaf, to start with, is Read More

How Do You Feel About Fig Newtons? #MissFiggy #TeaandTins

Do you like Fig Newtons? The answer to that question will determine whether you will like this tea. It’s like a Buzzfeed quiz, but with just one question. Because this tea is Fig Newtons in liquid form. 100%. The tea even has notes that I *swear* taste like the graham cracker. Growing up, my dad loved Fig Newtons to the point where it was a family joke. They were pretty good, I guess, but I couldn’t understand how they’d be a thing a person would SNEAK when no one was looking. Or a treat that somehow trumped cookies. In addition Read More

Sparkles in My Cuppa! Spritz of Glitz from Tea & Tins. . . .

Sparkly tea!!! I love teas that sparkle. It’s not like the sparkles do anything flavorwise but I am a sucker for them anyways. They just bring a touch of fun to the whole experience. In fact, DAVIDsTEA’s Glitter & Gold, the first tea I tried with sparkles, happens to be the first tea that truly captured my heart (because I liked the flavor, though the glitter didn’t hurt). This tea is a light, fruity delight. It’s like a liquid orchard with definite stone fruit flavors. Sweet and smooth. I think I get more peach than I do pear but the Read More

Almond Cookie from Tea & Tins. . . .

Lately I have had a serious obsession with pistachio ice cream. Like, I have eaten almost 3 quarts of it in the past 2 weeks. Well, pistachios themselves have a very mild flavor. Subsequently, the ice cream itself is actually flavored with almond. Have you ever noticed that pistachio ice cream kind of smells like biscottis? Well, that’s because of the almond flavoring. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen many pistachio ice cream teas circulating around in our little “tea-world” as of late. So, when I saw Almond Cookie by Tea & Tins I figured that it may help curb my craving Read More
