Downton Abbey® Mrs. Patmore’s Pudding Tea by Republic of Tea

Before I get to my tasting notes I’d just like to mention that Republic of Tea uses eco-friendly packaging to combine the convenience of tea bags with the sustainability of loose leaf tea. The tea comes in a reusable (and surely recyclable) metal tin, prepackaged in super-convenient round tea bags that are: Unbleached Minimalistic (don’t use much material) Biodegradable (well, it’s just a thin piece of paper, and tea leaves are compostable) Chemical-free Glue-free Gluten-free Without extra packaging like staples, strings, or tags It’s a very clever design and I really appreciate the effort they put into making eco-friendly tea so Read More


Chocolate Mint by The Love Tea Company. . . .

Today we have a wonderfully minty black tea up for review! This company’s website states that they donate 25% of their net profits to the Flagg Foundation for Mental Wellness, so buying this tea supports a great cause! Another great thing about this company (in addition to offering great tea) is that their tea comes in cute little plastic canisters that you can either reuse or recycle. This is great if, like me, you’re getting tired of having to throw all those loose leaf tea bags in the trash because they’re made of paper (or plastic) fused with foil so Read More

My Grandfather ADORED Lemon Drop Candy! When I first saw Lemon Drop Tea from The Tea Can Company I couldn’t wait to try it! It’s part of their Candy Shop Collection. The labels for their Candy Shop Collection are adorable and nostalgic. High elevation Ceylon Black Tea, Lemon Peel and Australian Lemon Myrtle? I’m THERE! The company says this tea has the mouthwatering taste of Lemon and the classic taste of Black Tea come together to create this delightful, sweet, low-calorie treat. Again…I’m THERE! Well it certainly smells like Lemon Drop Candy with a bit of black tea! The aroma Read More


Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas

During today’s tea samples I have been sipping on some pretty odd flavors and needed to cleanse my palate a bit this Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas seemed to do the trick! Chocolate Mint Black Tea from 3 Teas smells amazing! Just what you think it would smell like…chocolate, mint, and black tea. The flavor is incredible! Again, it tastes like a perfect combo of chocolate, mint, and black tea! The ratios are done nicely. One ingredient doesn’t seem to overpower the other ingredients. It tastes like a Girl Scout Cookie THIN MINT. There doesn’t seem to be Read More


Orange Cookies Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co

Orange Cookies Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. you are one of my new favorite flavored black teas! My first impressions of Orange Cookies Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co. was the potent spices! It wasn’t QUITE Chai spices but on the verge. I think it was missing a few traditional chai flavors to actually consider it to be a chai. More importantly I was completely blown away but the luscious, juicy, tangy orange in Orange Cookies Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea & Coffee Co., too! The orange was the most honest and Read More
