Apple Tea from Fauchon. . . .

Coming home from her honeymoon, my sister was in Paris for just a few short hours but she still managed to grab me a sampler pack of teas from Fauchon. This was one of four tea tins in that package. I opened it up and the first thing I noticed was the “leaves” because there really wasn’t leaves in the tin so much as there was powder. It actually looked like instant coffee to me. The other three tins looked more like the common tea leaf but this one was different and I was intrigued as to what that might Read More

apple mango sangria

Apple Mango Sangria from Steeped Tea. . . .

I was a little nervous to try this tea for a couple of reasons. The first being while I love mangoes, I don’t always like mango flavored things. And the second reason being that to me apple and mangoes seemed like an odd pairing. I made a batch of this tea on ice, because I definitely prefer my fruity teas cold for some reason. What can i say, when I’m wrong I admit it. I had no reason to be nervous, this blend is really fruity and very, very refreshing. The apple and mango kind of blend together to just Read More

Well, this blend has me curious because I can see pieces of oats! I mean, come on, we all know the best part about apple crisp is the cinnamon, sugar, and oat topping. I really love fall and I really love fall desserts. I mean don’t get me wrong, spring is great, but right now I am wishing for fall. Especially after drinking this blend.

Mountain-BLiss

Mountain Bliss from Balcony Tea. . . . . .

Historically, I haven’t been a huge fan of traditional green teas. (I KNOW. Don’t take my Official Tea Reviewer card away just yet.) But lately, my heavy, caffeinated black teas just aren’t doing it for me, and I’ve been craving something lighter, fresher… vegetal?! Who am I? I reached for this offering from Balcony that’s been hanging out in my cabinet for far too long. I think I was a little intimidated by the description, at first– thyme, juniper, fruit? Also, what’s Greek Mountsin tea?! (still not totally sure on that one.) But my curiosity finally got the best of Read More
