White Christmas from 52Teas. . . .

Imagine a jar of rainbow gumdrops.  These sweets could go one of two ways: fruity, gumdrops, or seasonal spice drops.  Is the dark purple candy grape or anise?  Are the red ones cinnamon or cherry?  Peppermint or pineapple?  Orange or clove?  If you’re not into these herbal-flavored treats, spice drops must be the bane of your existence.  Sassafras instead of lemon?! Fooled again! I like both kinds of candy drops, for different reasons.  But the one reason I love White Christmas Tea from 52Teas is that it smells and tastes just like a sweet spearmint spice drop.  The dry leaves Read More

Razzleberry Rooibos from 52Teas. . . .

It seems like my cupboard is comprised of mostly black teas but I don’t want to be drinking cup after cup of caffeinated blends just before bed. So…the search is always on and I am always open to suggestions. Recently, I was browsing the 52 Teas site and noticed this tea, Razzleberry Rooibos, was still available in both large and taster size and since I had an unopened taster bag at home, I decided to try it out to see if it was a blend I might want to Read More

Chocolate Banana Flavored Tea? We’re Listening. . . . #52Teas

There is definitely no mistaking that I don’t love banana- banana bread, banana tea, banana pancakes, banana smoothies. I just love bananas! I actually made chocolate covered bananas the other day. I dipped them in milk chocolate and covered them with crumbled graham crackers, crushed peanuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut. They were really really good. Sometimes I don’t always have the time to freeze, coat, and roll out chocolate covered bananas. Naturally, tea would be the next best option! You can always rely on 52 Teas for creativity and I know Anne (the mad tea artist at 52 Read More

Glazed Donut from 52Teas

I’ve hear about the 52Teas company for its unique and varying tea flavors (flavors like banana pudding, pumpkin cheesecake, and cotton candy), but this is my first time trying tea from 52Teas.  With a name like Glazed Donut, how could you not give this blend a try? Glazed Donut is a black tea with organic flavors added to create the dessert-flavor of its namesake.  I brewed this tea in a variety of ways.  First, I went for my preferred style: hot tea without any sugar or milk.  With this method, the strongest glazed donut experience I had was the smell Read More
