Chai Latte Milk Chocolate Bar from Chocolats Favoris. . . .

Just outside of Toronto is a chocolate shop called Chocolats Favoris. With a name like that, you know it has French origins and that’s because it actually comes from Quebec. They are a chocolate shop through and through and though they offer everything from chocolate bars to truffles to fondue cans, they are actually known for their chocolate dipped ice cream cones, which are ah. may. zing! So, having indulged in their chocolate dipped ice cream cones a few times and loving them, I knew I wanted some of their awesome chocolate to take home. I picked out a few Read More

Purpose Purple Super Tea. . .

Who doesn’t love the idea of fresh brewed tea in a convenient bottle-ready to go whenever you need it? And to boot being purple tea. . . I was all in. Purpose Tea has created ready to go Purple Tea to enjoy any time. . .the first of its kind actually.  When the tea arrived at my doorstep, I quickly put the tea in my fridge to cool to enjoy on one of my commutes taking the kiddos to school.   The next day, I took the tea along with my hot tea to enjoy during the 50 minute or Read More

Super Starling’s Festive Favorites!

Hello, TEA-ple! Hanukkah is here, and I’m ready to make demands! You might be thinking “but Super Starling… the holidays are underway.” Don’t fret. I accept holiday gifts all year round. Here are some tea-related festive favorites: Watercolor Art Print. I love the style on this: part papercut and part watercolor. Plus, plenty of pink and purple. I’m not usually girly, but tea brings it out in me. A Cup With Feet. Admit it. You’re wondering if this is dishwasher-safe. Strap in, folks: it is. The artist makes all kinds of mugs with — and a few without — feet. Read More

Rose Chateau by The Love Tea Co

I steeped this tea at 200 degrees in about a cup of water for about four minutes. This is another selection from the Love Tea Company, who donates a quarter of their proceeds to mental health causes. Their teas also come in cute little reusable canisters! The dried leaf has rose petals and other flower petals too, it looks like. According to the ingredients list these could be hibiscus, calendula, or sunflower petals, which are all included in the blend! In addition, there’s green tea in here and some curled oolong bits and some pieces of dried fruit (which turn Read More

Polka Dot Bikini Organic Puerh from Fraser Tea. . .

The name alone had me with this tea. . .I mean being a lover of all things polka dot and all. . . Polka Dot Bikini Organic Puerh is a wonderful blend of puerh tea, cocoa nibs, orange peel, fennel seeds and a few other ingredients.  A blend that I have had before but never with orange peels that large added in.  I ordered a box of sachets of this tea and a green tea sampler. I needed to know what this tea was all about. Since Fraser Tea is a new tea company to me, I wasn’t sure what to Read More
