Blueberry from Disney Wonderland Teas. . . . .

Disney World, aka the Happiest Place on Earth, aka the place where I had a panic attack and cried for 4 hours. Everyone has their own memories and dreams about it. Yet, anyone who has been there has probably passed by these Disney Wonderland Teas hiding somewhere in the many gift shops strewn throughout the parks.And they aren’t confined to just Disney World, these teas can be found at most Disney parks and I have even encountered them at Disney stores. Plus, they are available all over the internet. If I am being honest, I never personally bought these teas Read More

Mediterranean Grey from Balcony Teas. . . . .

Mediterranean Grey by Balcony Teas, is a variation on the Earl Grey theme that includes orange blossom and calendula petals. This gives it a sweetness that feels pastel to me. It’s springy! It’s joyous! If you do a Google Image Search for “Pride and Prejudice picnic,” that’s the exact aesthetic I’d give this tea. If I were naming this, I’d name it Cute Grey. (This is why I don’t get to name anything.) (I am permitted no responsibility in almost any aspect of my life.) (Why is there a term for “man-child” but no corresponding “woman-child”?Women can be JUST as Read More

Happy from Wild Leaf Active Teas. . . .

If you know me, you know I am ALL-IN when it comes to natural goodies. Tulsi tea falls squarely in this category, friends, and I’ll eagerly drink it up whenever I have the chance. Tulsi is an adaptogenic herbal tea, which means its herbal smarts adapt to support your body in the way that you need at that moment. (Remember, I’m not a doctor. I’m just riddled with hippie tendencies.) This particular blend from Wild Leaf boasts a balance of tulsi and chamomile with hints of lemon balm and rose petals. A true herbal, it brews up beautifully, and the Read More

Sencha-Green-Tea_0

Sencha Green Tea by The Tea Can Company. . . . .

I steeped this tea in one cup of 175° water. It comes in a sweet little tea sachet that I somehow managed to rip a hole in. (Good job, me.) So I’m steeping this for about three minutes and the color of the water is not changing all that much, although it is taking on a greenish yellow tint. The tea liquid is ever so slightly viscous, with teeny tiny specks dancing in it that I can barely even see. It’s not fragrant from across the room, but I can catch a whiff if I’m bending over the tea itself. I steeped for Read More
