#PeruvianSpiceBerry from #IncaTea

The dry leaf smells like mulled wine, with fragrant elderberry, cinnamon, and cloves. Pour a bit of water on these leaves and they brew up fast!  Wow, what a dark red berry brew after only a few seconds! Brewed, this tea gets much more tart, thanks to the powerhouse of hibiscus flowers.  The ingredients list also include purple corn.  I’m not sure how it adds to the flavor, but the brewed tea is a vibrant purple-pink color. This tea is best served warm, though the fruitiness might be suited for an iced tea, I’m not sure all the spice is Read More

Mountain-BLiss

Mountain Bliss from Balcony Teas. . . .

Sometimes flavored green teas and I don’t get along. I don’t know if a sharper base is usually used or if my stomach – and tastebuds – sometimes object to the flavorings themselves. I looked up the ingredients on this one to see if I needed to brace myself before sipping, but I am hopeful since this isn’t technically a flavored tea but rather a blend of lots of ingredients. And this tea is a blend of wonderful things that I need! The base is Chinese green, and the herb sideritis from which Greek Mountain tea or shepherd’s tea is Read More

Organic Hojicha Chai

Hojicha Chai from Eden Foods. . . . .

It’s been awhile since I’ve had Chai tea. Lately I’ve been drinking a lot of Tulsi herbal and ginger teas. I’m working on living a mostly caffeine free life, which can be a struggle at times. I was excited to try this Hojicha Chai because it is made with green tea, which of course is lower in caffeine than black. After checking their website, I was pleased to learn that this teas is made from larger leaves that have begun to lose their caffeine strength! Total win! I could smell the spices through the packet, and they smelled divine. I Read More

Oolong +Sweetner in One Convenient Tea Bag. . . . #Embrew

I was immediately intrigued by this tea as soon as I saw it sitting in my sample box. I’d been hearing about Embrew from my fellow Sororitea Sisters for the last few weeks– they’re a new company, packaging loose leaf tea into bags with the sweetener already added. A far cry from my early tea drinking days, I don’t usually sweeten my teas now, but will occasionally when it feels like they need a little oomph (or for homemade tea lattes, because #treatyoself). This particular brew, Creamy Honey Oolong, sounds right up my alley. Brewed, it’s a beautiful light gold Read More
