French Toast Oolong from Steeped Tea. . . . .

My weakness is mystery bundles. There is just something irresistible about being surprised by mail that isn’t bills. I’m also a sucker for a sale. So when my Steeped tea lady, Nicole, told me my order qualified for a Mystery bundle of $100 worth of tea for just $20, you best believe I snatched it up! This was one of nearly a dozen teas inside! This delightful morning blend is literally the flavors of an entire breakfast in one cup. My cousin is big on the butter in coffee trend, and as much as I’m willing to try new things, I just 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

Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House. . . .

Well, it may be Pekoe Breakfast, but I had it in the afternoon! It is touted as being a good tea to give energy and heaven knows I needed some of that. This is a blend of Assam, Nilgiri, and Chinese black teas, but the main aroma hitting my nose is Assam. Reminding me of a stout Irish Breakfast tea, this is so fruity, rich, and malty. You will swear someone added lemon to your tea. Sometimes Assam and I don’t get along. I have a tender tummy. This blend caused no trouble at all. I drank it straight, though Read More

Honey Gingerbread Pancake Yunnan Tea from A Quarter To Tea. . . .

Even the name of this tea is downright exciting! It is beautiful to look at, with pearly Yunnan snail black tea as the base. And with pancake in the name, I had to have it for Sunday breakfast with the family! The dominant aroma is ginger. I also found it to be the dominant flavor. (It really reminds me of fall and Christmas because that is the only time we use much ginger. Note to self – get more near the holidays!) The black tea base is strong enough to come through and not be masked by the added flavors, Read More
