Pineapple Marshmallow Black Tea from 52Teas. . .

Pineapple marshmallow?!? What?! How did I not know about this? Pineapple and marshmallow are two of my favorite things and alas I missed out on this tea. Luckily I have the wonderful CuppaGeek who surprises me with such delicious things. This is flavorful and yet not-in-your face. The black tea is a touch malty without being too much, therefore providing the perfect foundation for the flavors. The pineapple is subtle and sweet while the marshmallow is fluffy. Both flavors distinct while also seamlessly intertwined. I am definitely a fan of this one. It’s a shame this is out of stock Read More

52 Teas- Cookies for Santa Black Tea. . Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

On the 12th Day of Christmas, 52 Teas gave to me…Cookies for Santa Black Tea!! Its Christmas morning and I couldn’t be more festive today. We are making French Toast in my house since it’s our favorite breakfast, the baby is unwrapping her presents (more like ripping the wrapping paper all over the place haha), and I am really enjoying this yummy tea! The dry leaf smells like ginger and spices. I can see pieces of candied ginger and nutmeg. I brewed up my cup and took a seat, breathing in the spices. This one is like aromatherapy! So relaxing Read More

Monk’s Blend from Steeped Tea. . . .

POP QUIZ: What kind of tea do you think a monk would drink? NO CHEATING. Think carefully about your answer. Okay. Ready? Did you guess black tea with vanilla and grenadine? If you didn’t, you failed, and it goes straight on your permanent record. That’s okay. I failed, too. I imagined it would probably be some kind of green tea before it arrived. This is a really sweet and delicious blend. If this is what monks were having, it’s a more pleasant experience than I could have imagined. Then again, there are monks that specialize in training dogs , so it’s Read More

St Nick’s Tea from Simpson and Vail. . . .

This is one of my new acquisitions that I bought in a turkey stupor over Black Friday weekend. I bought a LOT of tea on Cyber Monday. Like, I’d be embarrassed if it, if I still had the capacity for that. But blowing money on my tea collection is part of my REPUTATION at this point. Gotta maintain my street cred. I picked this one specifically because Christmas is coming. I have been assiduously avoiding “Santa Baby” like the plague, but I imagine it’s only a matter of time until I hear it. I’m having trouble getting into the Christmas Read More

On the 6th Day of Christmas, 52Teas sent to me. . .

On the 6th Day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me…. Brownie Batter with Nut Butter Swirl Black Tea! I have a feeling this one will get a lot of swoons from you readers! The name is pretty irresistible, and so is the smell of the dry leaf. Even I did a little happy dance when I smelled it. In fact, I’m pretty sure over the next week I’ll be googling a recipe for brownies with a nut butter swirl because it sounds pretty amazing.                 I had my baby shower a few weeks ago and my mom made my Read More
