Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Teavivre

Jasmine – Take Me Away! I swear this stuff is better than any bubble bath for soothing frayed nerves! My jasmine vines are in bloom which set me to hankering for some delicious jasmine tea. The first jasmine tea I ever tasted was a painful experience. I will try to distance myself emotionally enough to recount it for you. It was EXACTLY like drinking perfume. Or soap. Or something nasty that was supposed to taste like a flower but tasted like chemicals instead. It was synthetically flavored with jasmine, and it showed. Then along came Teavivre and they sent me Read More

Green Tea + C Effervescent Tea Mix from Sencha Naturals. . . . .

I love the Emergen-C packets that you add to water. As someone who rides public transportation, I drink those very often in the winter months when everyone is coughing and sniffling over my shoulder. I also drink them several times a day if I feel myself getting the sniffles. But they do have some questionable ingredients, and as a vegan I have to be careful about what flavors I buy because they aren’t all vegan. (Weird that animal products would have to be added anyway) So I was excited to try this Sencha Naturals effervescent drink mix that is vegan, Read More

Toasted Marshmallow from 52Teas. . . .

Flavored Houjicha? YES, please! Toasted Marshmallow that happens to be VEGAN, YES, indeed! A roasty and toasty green tea that shares its blended base with white tea, too? I’m TOTALLY interested! It’s Toasted Marshmallow from 52 Teas! Anne at 52 Teas really has some amazing VEGAN marshmallow flavored teas! Usually made with Marshmallow Root – such is the case with this specific tea – that is. Organic ingredients in this tea include roasted green tea, white tea, marshmallow root, vanilla beans, and natural flavors. It’s sweet, creamy, a tad toasted and roasted and woodsy. It’s NOT bitter. It’s VERY well Read More

Gingerbread Green Tea from Twinings. . . .

This tea came in my little care package I received from my dear friend who lives in the UK. When I saw that it was a gingerbread green tea, my mind instantly thought of a Chai type tea, so i figured I would make it and add a little sugar and coconut milk. But the directions on the package said to not add milk. I had my doubts, but decided to not be a rebel and listen to the instructions. I was very pleasantly surprised! It has a definite sweet, cake like flavor. The ginger flavor is definitely there, but Read More

Pineapple Ginger Green Team from Republic of Tea. . . .

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I am a huge fan of The Republic of Tea. I love every flavor I’ve tried, and I love the tins that it comes in. Although I have been cutting caffeine out of my life, this morning is a grey, rainy dreary morning and I needed a little kick. I usually like my fruity teas cold, but this was the only caffeinated tea I had, so I brewed myself a warm cup. This tea is amazing! It tastes really good warm, I’m enjoying it which is a surprise to be honest! The ginger Read More
