Caramel Chai from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

Yum yum yum! This pu’erh chai has a lovely sweetness that turns it into a dessert. The sweetness is so strong I didn’t even put milk in it. (Is this chai blasphemy?) The pu’erh has a depth and strength that puts a dimension into it that a normal black chai doesn’t have. It’s a study in contrasts, and it totally works. One of my high school friends loved chai so much he had it incorporated into his AIM screen name. (That’s what the kids were doing pre-texting. Oh, the 1990s.) He’d always get it everywhere he went. He was like Read More

Summer Sangria (Now Champagne Sangria) from The NecessiTeas

I’ve been saddened by so many teas claiming to mimic a favorite food, then failing. But not here! This tea is a WINNER! This blend, originally called “Summer Sangria” and now titled “Champagne Sangria,” is made of white tea, orange peel, blackberries, red cornflower petals, marigold petals, natural and organic flavors. I tried this tea chilled, and found it delightful. There’s something in here that really does taste like wine. This is 100% a sangria — minus the headache!* * Am I the only one here who takes one sip of wine, gets a headache, and falls fast asleep on Read More

Root Beer Float from The Necessiteas. . . . . .

One of my favorite memories from my younger years with my dad was going out to run errands with him and stopping for A&W rootbeer floats on our way home. My family was BUSY– with three overachieving daughters and a packed schedule not much about my youth was spent not doing-doing-doing something, but these sweet little moments with my dad will always be carved out in my memory as such a treasure. Pulling the car up to the radio, getting our drinks delivered on roller skates, sipping that ice-cold frothy foam off the top before getting to the creamy carbonation Read More

Old Fashioned Spice Cake from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

I have no words. Dang this tea was good. So, Old Fashioned Spice Cake by The NecessiTeas, thank you for coming into my life. This was unbelievably good! Halfway through my first cup -I jumped onto their website and bought a whole 3oz of it, along with a few others! Smelling the dry leaf you definitely get “spice”- cinnamon, clove, and coriander. You also can really smell those bakery notes- the almond cream and the cake. I was a little hesitant that it would be some super spiced black tea or too closely resemble a chai, but I was wrong.
