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

Apple Sage from Simpson and Vail- A Holiday Experience

Fall flavors are usually dominated by pumpkin and cloves and cinnamon and spice, but Apple Sage from Simpson & Vail focuses on the less obvious sensations of the season. With fresh apple and savory sage, this blend should definitely be in everyone’s fall rotation. Apple pieces in the dry leaf immediately give off a fragrance that transports me to my hometown orchard: juicy, sweet-tart fruit, maybe paired with a cinnamon honey-stick from their local honeybee hive.  The apple pieces are numerous, and provide a true, luscious, apple flavor. What really makes this blend unique is the sage.  I can’t say Read More

Halloween Caramel Apple from Woodie Barnes-McWhirter, An Adagio Signature Blend

It’s Halloween! Time for all the things to go bump in the night come out and play. I’ve always been a huge Halloween fan and love all the scary movies and scary television themed shows.  My kiddos and I are especially fond of Halloween Wars on Food Network.  We love watching the pumpkin carvers and bakers create amazing spooky scenes. So the other night while we were watching our Halloween shows, I brewed up a tea pot of this lovely brew.  I’m quite a fan of Adagio Signature Blends.  Ever once in a while you do end up with a Read More
