Hillary Enjoys A Cuppa Chocolate Chai From California Tea House. . . .

I’ve mentioned at least a million times that I love Chai tea. It’s one of my favorite teas ever. When I saw the words chocolate and chai together, my heart skipped a beat. Chocolate is really the only thing that can make chai better in my opinion. I could smell the chocolate and spices through the bag and it just made me want a cup right away. This is an herbal chai, so no caffeine which makes me super happy, and makes this a suitable tea for any time of the day or night.  I brewed myself a cup, and the Read More

Good morning everyone. Before I start geeking out over tea I just wanted to say thank you for letting me join the Sororitea Sisters! I look forward to discovering new teas and making friends with you all. Genmaicha. Once known as the poor mans drink among the Japanese people.

Now 10 years later, I yet again have the opportunity to try their teas. And this time, Read More

Black Gold from California Tea House

Black Gold from California Tea House is a Blooming Tea or a Flowering Tea that is made of a Black Tea Base, Jasmine, and Marigold. Once hot water was added and the ball of tea bloomed it floated around in the tea pot gracefully. It was beautiful. Like other blooming teas or flowering teas Black Gold from California Tea House took a while to completely come to life. The first infusion – even after 5 minutes or more – was a very mellow color and flavor. It was floral and tasty but not as dark or powerful as I thought Read More

Imperial Gyokuro Genmaicha Green Tea from California Tea House

Imperial Gyokuro Genmaicha Green Tea from California Tea House is the tea of the moment here at SororiTea Sisters and what a tea moment it IS! Genmaicha Green Teas fascinate me. There are so many different looks, feels, sniffs, tastes to them eventho they only have 2 ingredients (unless you throw matcha in there then there are 3 ingredients but you know what I mean!) This particular Imperial Gyokuro Genmaicha Green Tea from California Tea House is really somethings special! The dry aroma isn’t overly powerful. I was kind of surprised at that but didn’t pre-judge it and was rewarded Read More
