The Unicorn! from 52Teas. . . .

For my 25th birthday, my family surprised me with a sweet table. An entire sweet table! Not just any sweet table though. It was a unicorn themed sweet table and it was amazing. So, you can be sure that when 52 Teas came out with a unicorn tea, I would be all over it. Lucky for me, I didn’t even need to place an order because I won a contest and this arrived at my door. I would say it was meant to be. This tea was inspired by the limited time frappucino from a certain coffee shop. It is Read More

French #7 from Blue Hour Tea. . .

Don’t let the flowers fool you: this Earl Grey blend is POWERFUL. It’s packed to the gills with the Earl’s trademark bergamot, plus lavender and cornflowers. This blend packs a punch. DO NOT OVERSTEEP IT. Tired? The smell itself is so strong that it will wake you up immediately. Cranky? The flavor will get your gears in motion. Dead on the inside? The caffeine will give you a shove. This is like Earl Grey’s spunky hippie sister got into his tea stash and started messing around with it “I picked these today,” she whispers, dropping a handful of blossoms into Read More

Country Chai Spice from Cozy Leaf Tea . . .

If your discerning palette is in search of organic teas, I’ve got a new company for you to consider: Cozy Leaf! They focus on organic ingredients, and have a bunch of teas, including one for lactating mothers, and two specifically for pregnant women: baby blessings and pregnancy. I have neither had children nor, accordingly, lactated, so today we’re sticking with my favorite: a nice black chai! This is a yummy, deep mix. It has malty assam instead of the funky darjeeling that’s typically found in chai, which makes it richer and mellower. The cloves and other spices participate in giving it that Read More

Smores from Citizen Tea. . . .

I have had this tea for quite sometime and though I had it before and enjoyed it, I kept looking over it when trying to pick something to drink. Well today I decided that it was about time I get to drinking this and I am certainly glad I did. I had just enough leaf left to make a small latte. I steeped the tea for 3 minutes at 200F as per the recommendations on the package. I topped that with frothed milk and the end result is one tasty treat. First and foremost is the gooey marshmallow flavor that Read More

Heavenly Cream from Sloane. . .

One sip of this tea and you’ll know why they named it heavenly cream. It’s like drinking a cloud; if clouds had flavors. Boy wouldn’t that make for interesting rain? Ha! Anyway, this tea has a subtle black base which is complemented very well with the bits of bergamot flavors and the incontestable cream and vanilla impressions. For those of you who like Earl Grey but would prefer a stronger creamy presence this is the one for you. Here’s the scoop! Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy:  Sloane Fine Tea Merchants Description A divine tea, full of creamy richness and Read More
