Honey Mead from A Quarter to Tea. . . . .

I have had one other flavored genmaicha blend from A Quarter to Tea and I was not a fan. Now that I think about it, my dislike was probably due to improper steeping on my end but nonetheless, the memory had me wary of buying another flavored genmaicha offering. However, when I see flavored genmaichas I feel compelled to buy them anyways, plus the honey in the title was just calling to me. Consequently I bought a mere sample size and now I am kicking myself for not getting more because this is ah.may.zing! I should mention I have never Read More

Spiced Cucumber Melon from 52Teas . . . . .

If you were a teenage girl in the 90s-2000s (raises hand), there’s not a doubt in my mind that at some point, you owned a bottle of cucumber melon body splash. (Am I right, or am I right?) When I spotted this tea in my sample pile, my mind immediately jumped to that infamous, chemically-fresh scent of my adolescence. Luckily, upon first sniff, I’m totally blown away– in the best way possible. There’s hints of the true cucumber-melon notes from the scent we’ve all come to know and love, but authentically, not chemically and fake at all. Underneath the bright Read More

Tomato Basil-Green Tea Sipping Broth from Millie’s Savory Tea

Millie’s Savory Teas offers a unique type of tea- a savory one.  I’ve tried their Spicy Tortilla and Thai Lemongrass offers so I had high hopes and expectations of this one. Instead of creating sweet or more main stream teas, Millie’s Savory Teas has created a line of teas that offers more of a green tea broth mix. Each flavor has a robust veggie overall feel with the complimentary spices creating a delightful savory experience. Right off the bat, I was impressed with how this tea smelled.  I could really smell a familiar tomato soup like freshness.   Brewed up Read More

Green Defense from Tocha Tea. . . . . .

Every time I look at this tea’s name — “Green Defense” — I automatically change it in my mind to “Green Defense Against The Dark Arts.” You know, a tea that Harry Potter would drink to fortify himself against mind attacks from Voldemort. Tocha Tea’s site says that this tea “stimulates your senses while supporting overall wellness.” The description is unclear about the use of the word “defense.” Is it a defense against… sickness? Sadness? Malaise? ENNUI?* * (“Ennui” is a favorite word in my very nerdy family. It’s a French term that means “existential dread” and/or “boredom with one’s Read More
