A Trio of Peach Teas from Beleave, Rishi, and Teavana. . . .

Who knew I had so many peachy teas in my cupboard?  Let’s look at a spontaneous peach tea trio! Pinkies Up Peach from Beleave Teas Leaf type: white tea This is a white tea with peach pieces and added flavors.  The dry leaf smells fruity and juicy without being artificial.  When brewed, the white tea base is smooth and buttery and pairs perfectly with the bright sweet peach overtones.  White tea and peach are a winning combination.  Black tea blends tend to get too tart or overbearing against the sweet fruit.  Pinkies Up Peach from Beleave would make a great Read More

Ten Flavors of Kombucha from GT’s Living Foods

Kombucha appears to be all the rage right now, with stores stocking more companies and flavors than I’ve ever noticed before, even outside the shelves of my local health food store.  What is kombucha?  Kombucha is fermented black tea.  The fermentation process gives the brew carbonation and bacteria, the good kind of bacteria like in yogurt, which helps the digestive system.  Due to the fermentation process, some kombuchas are contain alcohol, and others have gone through processes to filter out this excess alcohol and make it safer for those who don’t partake.  Check on the alcohol content of the next Read More

Winter Herbal Tea from Elderberry Herb Farm

Winter Herbal Tea may list hibiscus first in its ingredients, but it doesn’t have the puckery tart kick that a lot of people dislike about hibiscus. It does pull off tasting like the base is unsweetened cranberry juice that has been mulled with spices. The tisane brews up a beautiful cranberry red. How pretty this would be served at a holiday gathering in a glass Irish coffee mug! The smell takes you right back to that Christmas recipe  people used to make and giveaway – instant tea mixed with Tang and cinnamon and nutmeg. But it doesn’t taste like the old “Russian Tea” recipe.

Cranberry Creme Black from 52Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy: 52Teas Tea Description: I wanted to create a cranberry flavored black tea – but I didn’t want to go for a straightforward cranberry black tea because that’s been done. At first, I was going to go with a cranberry custard pie flavor but my initial taste tests of that blend proved to be underwhelming. So instead, I went with a cranberry tea with a creamy custard-y flavor. It has a tangy cranberry note but the edgier, tartier flavors of the cranberry are softened by the sweet, vanilla creme notes. It’s tasty! Learn more Read More
