Natural Cacao Tea from Micacao. . . . .

The site for this tea describes cacao as a “superfood” — a fact that almost every woman on Earth innately knows. (Am I right?) The touted health benefits of this tea include kicking caffeine addiction, weight loss, and boosting mood. Like I care about any of that. I just want to drink chocolate. This is a tasty brew, sweet with a tiny smoky tinge. It has a lot of the impact of eating chocolate, with few (if any) of the calories. Would I rather be shoveling pure candy bars into my face? Obviously. But this tea does, to a degree, Read More

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

Atlantis Found. . .An Adagio Teas Custom Blend From Our Own TeaEqualsBliss. . . . .

My television often displays shows about Earth’s mysterious past. Ancient Aliens, Curse of Oak Island, What On Earth, Mythbusters, Finding Bigfoot, and Hunting Hitler have all graced our screen. My husband cannot get enough of unsolved peculiarities. We’ll be eating a meal and he’ll be like “did you know that the skull fragment the KGB presented as evidence of Hitler’s death was tested? And it’s FEMALE?” or “have you ever seen pictures of the circles in South America where nothing grows — and NO ONE KNOWS WHY? THE SOIL IS FINE” or “did you know the sphinx was probably a Read More

Hazelnut. . .Chocolate. . .Yerba Mate. . . Mocha Nut Mate from Adagio Teas

Okay, full disclosure here, I was really hesitant about this blend. I am not a fan of mocha/coffee flavor at all. I switched from coffee to tea a long time ago and don’t really like tea that tastes like coffee. However, the smell of the dry leaf was enticing me because I could smell the hazelnut and chocolate and it smelled delicious. I’ve never had mate before and I hear its loaded with caffeine, so if you are looking for an energy boost this just may be a great tea for you. The steeped liquid looked as dark as coffee Read More

Chocolate Stout Brownies. . . A Quarter To Tea Blend

My birthday just recently passed and with that came a lot of people asking “what do you want for your birthday?” This seems like a simple question yet I have a bit of an impulse control problem so I tend to buy the things I want as soon as I see them, which makes it surprisingly difficult to request reasonable gifts. However, this year I knew just what to ask for…the monthly subscription to A Quarter to Tea! Every time I read about their new teas of the month, my mouth waters and now that they deliver to Canada, I Read More
