My Favorite After-School Special: Marshmallow Krispy Treat from The Necessiteas

The Marshmallow Krispy Treat, the staple of after school snacking or easy, no-bake sweet treats.  And now, we can taste this simple dessert in tea form.  This blend uses a black tea base sweetened up with mini marshmallows and puffed rice cereal pieces.  The dry leaf smells sweet and buttery like the crispy breakfast cereal. When brewed, the blend tastes more caramel than marshmallow.  This tea is best with a bit of milk to pump of the mini marshmallow sweetness, otherwise the black tea base takes over the other flavors.  This is a tasty blend, but it doesn’t quite match Read More

Chocolate Chip Pancakes from Bumble Tea. . . .

My doctor told me to drastically decrease my caffeine intake, which means less tea. I got until 3:30 pm (right now) before making myself my one daily cup. I’d been hoping to cold turkey it and try talking about decaf teas for a while, but I crashed. Today’s feature: Chocolate Chip Pancakes! YUM! When you open this up, the chocolate powder puffs out. The majority of the mix is solid (tea parts, etc), but the powder is exciting. It smells REALLY amazing. This is a malty, dark chocolate flavor. Like the pancakes have been a little bit crisped. The shimmering Read More

Earl Grey Le Creme from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

  I’m not normally a bergamot fan, but my high school partner-in-crime, code-named Tiny Salutations is, so welcome her along on today’s adventure! This is a delightful blend that ignites the romance at first sight, and pictures don’t do it justice. Beautiful blue corn flowers are sprinkled throughout, which is a special flower that she would grow and send to husband back when they first dated. She says she’s kind of in love with this tea before even drinking it. The dry leaves need to be cross-marketed as an air freshener! The corn flowers float to the top as it Read More

Christmas Night from Tea Taxi. . . .

Christmas Night. What do you expect? Pine and orange and clove, right? Wrong. This is a black tea with chocolate and ice cream bits and strawberry pieces and it smells ah-may-zing. Like a strawberry milkshake and since I love strawberry milkshakes, this is alright in my book. To be honest I was saving this and then forgot about it so this sample is old but still smelled great so I had high hopes and since I had about 25 grams to work with, I decided to make this a variety of ways: plain, latte, and a smoothie. My fear was Read More

Calico & Black Cat Tea from 52Teas. . . .

On a rainy day where the wind is blowing and the raindrops are as big as golf balls, tea is perfect to curl up with. Sometimes, if you want a little something more, a latte could be what’s needed to hit the spot. For me, it was a rainy day in May. I just had a consultation with a surgeon regarding my gallstones and got drenched walking back to the car as it poured outside. I got home, freezing, a little bit soggy, and I needed something more. That meant a Calico & Black Cat skim milk latte. Having had Read More
