saffron kahwa green tea

Saffron Kahwa from Tea Trunk . . .

A saffron tea had me intrigued. This is not an ingredient usually used in tea blends so I was interested to see what it contributed. I had no idea what to expect but there is a creaminess here that I am at a loss for where it is coming from (would saffron add creaminess? I think that seems off. Maybe it is the almonds?). In addition to the saffron and the almonds noted above, this tea boasts a chai tea profile with rose petals. All on a green tea base. Tea Trunk recommends this as a detox tea, one to Read More

Charge from Wild Leaf Active Teas. . . . .

Around 2pm is when I’m grabbing for something to keep me going for a few more hours.  This little ditty has been saving me from grabbing a sugary snack for the past week and I am completely in love with it. Wild Leaf Active Teas offers a line of teas with a healthy thought behind each tea.  I regularly drink their Slim tea in the mornings and adore that rich jammy earthy flavor.  I’ve found in the mornings that I do have more energy but I do drink a few servings of this tea before hitting the road in the Read More

Velvety Vanilla Chai from Twinings. . . . . . .

A dear friend who lives in England sent me some teas in the mail, and they’re all teas I’ve never had. The first tea I decided to try is of course Chai. I can never resist a good Chai. With a name like velvety vanilla, how could I not try it? It is a Chai made with black tea, but I threw my caffeine caution to the wind and brewed a cup. This morning was grey and cool so I needed the extra lift anyway. Awhile back I tried a vanilla Chai and the vanilla flavor tasted very chemical-y. It Read More

Raspberry Leaf from Republic of Tea. . . .

Raspberry leaf comes in a round sachet. It smells just like banana, but this tea is made from raspberry leaf.  Brewed up with boiled fresh water, this tea just still has a banana like aroma. One sip and this tea tastes  just like you are eating a fresh banana. I tried this tea on two different occasions. I still couldn’t taste any raspberry or any of the flavors that a few of the other Sisters got. . . . for me I could only taste banana. I tried to enjoy this tea. I really did but unfortunately, raspberry leaf isn’t for Read More

Earl Grey Tea from Wissotzky Tea. . . . .

For someone who does not like bergamot all that much, I seem to keep coming across Earl Grey inspired snacks all the time. First the London Fog Donut from Glory Hole Donuts and then the London Fog Caramels by Tout de Sweet, both of which I have written about here on SororiTea Sisters. Well, my most recent find is an Earl Grey truffle from The Golden Apple here in Toronto, Canada. Actually, I am not the one who found it, my sister was and she brought it home for me to try. I decided to brew up an Earl Grey Read More
