Maple_Nut_Houjicha

Toasted Maple Green from TeaSource. . . .

I don’t know why, but the smell and taste of this blend reminds me of flavored coffee. Maybe that’s because back when I was a coffee drinker I used to drink this blend that was called “maple sleigh” so now I just associate maple with coffee. I’m not sure, either way this blend definitely has a strong maple scent. I steeped this one and it is actually very dark for a green tea, and that is because it is a houjicha blend! I have tried one other maple houjicha blend, and both were delicious but I feel like this one Read More

Chestnut Fans. . .Check This Blend Out! #TeaSource

I really love chestnuts. They are truly my favorite nut. I love roasting them at home or even eating them out of a bag pre-cooked.

A Dessert Tea from Tea Source. . .Pistachio Shortbread Style!

Wow. Just wow. This is another one of the teas I received during my first ever tea-swap. I absolutely love pistachio and I know I have said this in my reviews before. I also really like anything nutty and dessert teas. So, pistachio shortbread was kind of a no brainer choice for me. I can honestly say that this is one of my all-time favorites, hands down, no questions asked. It is definitely my favorite pistachio flavored teas. After my second sip I searched out this company, Tea Source, and tried to see if I could buy more (it is Read More

Berried Treasure from Tea Source

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy:  Tea Source Product Description: This unique blend is sweet, smooth, and spicy with a kick. Contains: black tea, flavor, red peppercorns, and strawberry pieces. Taster’s Review: This is pretty tasty.  I am really liking how the hint of pepper accents the strawberry flavor. It’s not a particularly strong flavored tea.  The black tea base is the strongest note of the cup, and that’s not a bad thing.  The black tea tastes brisk and strong, although I wouldn’t categorize it as an aggressive tea.  It has a smoothness to it and a nice Read More
