Roasted Dandelion Root from Traditional Medicinals. . . . .

I have been drinking Yogi teas spiced dandelion tea and really enjoying it. I decided to give this roasted dandelion tea a try. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t enjoy it without the spicy flavor. I had no reason to worry, this tea is really delicious on it’s own.

Southern Mint Herbal Tea from Revolution Tea. . . . .

I love mint tea. I love how the smell instantly revitalizes you before even taking a sip. I don’t think I’ve ever had Southern mint tea, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with this tea. It’s stronger than other mint teas I’ve had, and that’s a good thing. As soon as I poured the boiling water over the tea bag, my kitchen smelled like mint. My cat was actually on the counter being a bug-a-boo, and she instantly gave me the side eye and jumped down. She’s not a fan of the smell of mint or bananas! This tea Read More
