Francesca from Sicilian Tea Company. . . .

It’s always good to have a chamomile blend or two in your tea cabinet for those when you need something extra comforting and caffeine-free.  Francesca from Sicilian Tea Co. could be the perfect choice for your evening cup of tea. Some people consider herbal teas to be medicinal, with herbs like lavender and chamomile to help combat stress.  Both of these fragrant blossoms are in abundance in this blend, bringing their lovely color and shape to the dry leaf, and the lemony and floral scent of the brew. There are also cinnamon sticks, Saint John’s Wort, and licorice root in Read More

A Different Type of Chamomile Tea! Happy from Wild Leaf Active Teas

Welcome to Leah’s Tour of Decaf! Today’s pick is Happy by Wild Leaf Active Teas. The irony of drinking an “active tea” on a day I have no plans to hit the gym is not lost upon me. But I’m still not going. Let’s talk about its contents and vibe! I love whoever wrote the copy for this blend; and I honestly am not sure I can do better. The tagline for it is “Take us to your happy mug. We’ll take you to your happy place.” The blend & ingredients are described thus: “A modern blend to cheer you Read More

April Siesta from 52Teas. . . . .

Okay April Siesta, I see you, okay. Now I want to start off this review saying that my love of this tea was 110% unexpected. The ingredients are not my usual (aside from chamomile- because unlike a lot of people, I actually am a fan of chamomile). However, the ingredients of lemon, orange, and licorice definitely scared me. Licorice, not as much as lemon and orange. I am not usually the kind of girl that wants tart tea or citrus flavors. When I smelled the dry leaf, I could smell citrus and it definitely made me second guess trying it Read More

Sunset in Seattle from Market Spice. . . . .

Wow! This tea is so cool tasting. It tastes like cream soda. Ingredients include rosehips, vanilla, chamomile, spearmint, raspberry, lemon grass, hyssop and herbs. This blend is very soothing, and very mellow. The taste is so unique and interesting. I want to keep taking another sip because there is just so much going on and I want to keep trying to figure it out. I can see why this tea has won awards and is a “fan favorite” at Market Spice The first thing I noticed was that it smelled really sweet, so I skipped the agave (this is happening Read More

Bone Repair

Wellness Tea-Bone Repair from The Virginia Tea Company. . . .

It is the beginning of a new year and I’m sure if you are like me, you are seeing a ton of detox and healthy wellness teas in your social media feeds. I’ve never been a big fan of good for you herbals but I’ve always enjoyed herbals that are full of dried fruit.   Recently I’ve noticed my taste buds are starting to change. I’m no longer craving the floral teas like I used to but am finding myself really craving herbs and spices like ginger, spearmint, peppermint, chamomile, and so on. So today I thought would be a Read More
