Unlock your Inner Romantic with Rose Garden Pu Erh from Tocha Tea

Rose Garden Pu Erh from Tocha Tea looks the part right off the bat, with deep, pink rose petals and dark tea tied up neatly in a silk teabag. The dry tea smells strongly of roses, so strongly, the scent verges into being a bit like floral-scented soap. With the heavy rose smell and the pu erh base, I kept the steep times and temperatures a little lower than the package recommended, brewing for 1 minute at about 195 degrees Fahrenheit, to keep the flavors from getting too saturated. When brewed, the rose overtones are still the most forward flavor, Read More

Mango Party Coffee Leaf Tea from Wize Monkey

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Coffee Leaf Tisane Where to Buy: Wize Monkey Tea Description: Juicy mangoes all up in your boca! Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: The packaging of this one didn’t give much away – only the name (Mango Party), and the fact that it’s a test flavour.

I did a little digging around, and discovered that this is, in fact, a coffee leaf tea. This isn’t something I’ve ever tried before, so it piqued Read More
