Enjoying A Pumpkin Tea. . . .Out of Season! #bluebirdteaco.

There is literally no “wrong” time of year for pumpkin spice. I will never let such trivialities come in the way of a delicious taste or a review thereof. Feel free to pat me on the back for journalistic integrity. I boogey to the beat of my own drummer. Go ahead. Incorporate this into your own life. Drink tea “out of season.” Wear white after labor day. Wear black in the summer. Have visible panty lines. Go to a water park in the winter. Celebrate Halloween with a Gothy holiday tree. Adopt a squirrel and wear it as a hat. Read More

Holiday Blend Alert! Snowball from Bluebird Tea Co.

I love Hostess Sno-Ball cakes.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the Sno-Ball was a chocolate cake, filled with cream, covered in marshmallow, and crusted in coconut.  Yeah, I know, it’s a lot to take in.  Not to mention the cakes were dyed different colors for the holidays (orange for Halloween, red and green for Christmas, pink for whatever).  As a kid, these cakes were the nectar of the gods. Into adulthood, we entered the dark ages when Hostess filed for bankruptcy and the snacks were no longer being manufactured. To help me cope with the loss, I Read More

Holiday Blend Alert! Spiced Pumpkin Pie from Bluebird Tea Co.

In my family, the holidays mean nothing without our traditions. Buy Christmas PJs together the day after Thanksgiving? Check. (Even as adults. Yup, this is a real thing, you guys.) Go to the orchard every autumn and come home with enough apples to keep us flush with homemade applesauce until the cows come home? Check. (Still eating that applesauce, btw). Surprise each other with new books on Christmas Eve and spend all day cozied up (in our Christmas PJs, naturally) and reading? Check. (That’s one of my faves). But no Thanksgiving tradition runs as deep in our family as pumpkin Read More

Enchanted Narnia from Bluebird Tea Co.

I love the inspiration for this tea and the references to Narnia and Turkish Delight. While the ingredients are rather simple: rosebuds, cocoa shells, rose petals, lemongrass and raspberry leaves, the combination seems a little odd. I personally wouldn’t think that lemongrass would work with roses and cocoa shells, but since I enjoy these ingredients on their own and in other teas, I think they just might work in this blend! The main flavor that I’m tasting is of a soft cocoa. It reminds me a little bit of a powdery chocolate, a bit like a hot chocolate mix. It’s Read More
