Blueberry Pie from DAVIDs Tea. . . .

Blueberry pie. If I am being honest, I don’t think I have ever had it. I have had Apple Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Pecan Pie, even Bumbleberry Pie which I believe has blueberries in it. Never Blueberry Pie. I do like the sounds of it though and I am all on board for pie teas so this Blueberry Pie tea from TeaTaxi seemed like a winner. I would prefer if it weren’t a white tea though, at least that’s how I feel going into this even before trying the tea as my usual preference is for non-white bases. Also, seeing Read More

Chocolate Earth from Story of My Tea. . . . .

I travel a lot to Texas with my kiddo, so when I saw a Houston-based tea company, I knew I had to learn more. This Kickstarter-founded company, called Story of my Tea, recently offered two of their new Hello! pre-measured iced teas for free (just pay S&H) ….. an iced teaser, if you will 😉 I’m familiar with cold brewing tea bags, but what really got me about this company was the awesome variety of blends. I chose Rhubarb Oolong and Chocolate Earth (a puerh and white tea blend) as my free samples. First off, their packaging is really clever. Read More

White Thunder from The Love Tea Company. . . .

White Thunder by The Love Tea Company, a mint white tea that also happens to be the last of the three teas sent to me by CuppaGeek as part of the Tea It Forward program. I have mentioned it before and will mention it again because Tea It Forward is a great program that allows you to let someone know they’re loved and in doing so, a $1 donation to The Flagg Foundation for Mental Wellness is made in your name. The tea utilizes a Bai Mu Dan base with peppermint and spearmint on top. This makes for a more Read More

Aphrodite

Aphrodite from Fox Tea Club. . .

I am a green tea kinda gal.  Green teas just give me all the feels.  So when Fox Tea Club’s samples arrived and I saw Aphrodite-a green and white tea blend- in this adorable and let me repeat ADORABLE canister with a wax seal- I immediately prepped up my tea pot.   (Sorry for the dull picture.  It was a cloudy day.) First whiff of the tea yielded a fresh floral sweet aroma.  My husband said the tea smelled like purple. Brewed with water prepped at 190F and allowed to steep for three minutes and cooled for an additional three minutes, Read More
