Chocolate Eclair Tea. . . .#52Teas

My sister has never been a lover of tea. For a long time she could not understand my love of the beverage and it was only recently that she has started actually trying teas. It started with afternoon teas, at those she found a couple she liked and started to build a small stash, then I learned that she was actually drinking her teas nightly, and now she’s starting to get it. That is awesome in one respect but now she’s moving in on my teas, which I guess is fine but occasionally it means I am losing my very Read More

Pumpkin Pie Tea from Tupelo Honey Teas. . . .

Disclaimer: I did not add pumpkin puree to my tea. While I found the thought of doing so very intriguing, I simply did not have the time to run out and get some. However, I did add pumpkin flavored agave. So I am crossing my fingers and crossing my toes that I enjoy this blend without the recommended-by-the-company pumpkin puree! I will say that I was a little annoyed with the fact that there was no pumpkin flavor in this tea, but that you had to add pumpkin puree. I do find it creative, but not everyone has a chance Read More

Hot Mama from Tea & Tins. . . .

Drinking this Hot Mama tea feels like dancing to a Beyoncé song while Ryan Gosling winks a “Hey Girl” at you. If I had to start every day the same way, it would be with this kind of delicious affirmation. I was interested at first sight of the heart decorations and brewed this up hot and also cold because I wasn’t sure if the candy hearts would melt or not and it turned out well both ways. (They didn’t melt, surprisingly!) I generally add a good amount of honey to my tea but this was the first time EVER I Read More

Muskoka Chai from Pluck Teas. . . . .

It’s a gloomy day in the city. Rain all day keeping everything wet. High winds keeping everyone cold. The threat of snow looming. Perfect day for snuggling up in bed with a good book and a hot cup of tea. Alas, I had to get my butt to work so I sat in traffic and and then under the florescent lights of the office for what felt like forever. When I finally returned home, I wanted something special and a chai latte just seemed right. I mean, when done properly, a good tea latte is like a nice hug for Read More

Pig Sprinkles in Tea! Fig Flavored Tea from Tea and Tins. . .

PIG SPRINKLES!! CUTE LITTLE PINK PIG SPRINKLES!! Okay. I am done now. Darn sprinkles get me every time. I see them in a tea and nothing else matters, the tea is just tossed into my cart. Here, however, I was intrigued by the fig flavor and was personally quite a fan of the name. This tea is all sorts of kitschy and I love it. Now, I should probably start off by saying that I don’t think I have ever had a fig but for some reason fig jams and fig teas and other fig-flavored foods call to me. So, Read More
