Lemon & Orange from Taylors of Harrogate. . . .

If you’re ever frustrated by teas that don’t taste like the thing they’re supposed to, turn to this tea. It’s “Lemon & Orange” and it is, true to form, Lemon. And. Orange. It streaks through your mouth like a Tazmanian devil of citrus. Which is JUST the thing I needed this morning. It’s Monday AND it’s raining. I’m listening to a very fun playlist called “Sexy This Second” curated by Victoria’s Secret on Apple Music. It’s pumpin’, but it’s not ENOUGH. So I turned on my full-spectrum bulb. (It simulates sunlight.) Nah. Time to turn to tea. I said to 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

Pancake Breakfast from 52Teas. . . . .

I’m really excited to be reviewing a tea that is part of 52 Teas’ permanent collection! Its nice that they started this because I like having options that aren’t always Limited Edition. I never tried their Pancake Breakfast Black Tea before, but when I saw it I had to grab a sample pouch because anything that involves pancakes or waffles always peaks my curiosity. Smelling the dry leaf of this smooth black tea blend I could definitely smell the maple syrup. Now- something that happens with a lot of teas that are created after a pancake or waffle usually end Read More

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
