Marshmallow Assam from 52Teas. . . .

Marshmallow. Assam. So simple but so good. I had this when it was made by the original 52 Teas and voted constantly for it to be reblended as part of the new 52 Teas’ 12 Days of Christmas promotion. It’s that good. The assam is bright and malty. Perfect to wake you up but it refrains from being astringent thanks to the soft fluffiness of the marshmallow. Marshmallow flavor is what takes over here. It is sweet and gooey and great. Plus, the outer layer of real marshmallows are a little crisp as opposed to the gooey center and somehow Read More

Tangerine Cupcake? With Marshmallow FROSTING? #52Teas

There’s just something about a well-named tea, you guys. I’ll be the first to admit that I TOTALLY judge literal books by their covers when I’m in a bookstore, or the library– and that same tendency seems to spill into the tea-loving parts of my life as well. So when I stumbled across this tea– TANGERINE cupcake? With MARSHMALLOW FROSTING? it immediately got bumped to the top of the list on name alone. Like many other sisters reviewing here, I am a sucker for marshmallow in tea– particularly, the pillowy, creamy goodness that the marshmallow root herb adds to a Read More

Ginger Snap from Pluck Teas. . . .

When I see ginger teas, I think lattes. Don’t know why but probably something with the spice and the creaminess that just speaks to me. I mean, people make chai in milk more times than not so following that mindset, I brewed this up as a latte. There is a strong ginger flavor here. Not much of a kick but the flavor is present as is the cinnamon which sits on the tip of the tongue. The spices are strong and take over the creaminess of the steamed milk. They also work together to create a dark baked good flavor Read More

Jasmine Tea Blend from Simpson and Vail. . . . .

I haven’t quite made up my mind on whether I like jasmine or not. When I think I do, I try something else that includes jasmine and then I wonder if I actually don’t. I was hesitant to try this Jasmine Tea Blend by Simpson and Vail because of this. However, I persevered and decided to go ahead and try anyways. Jasmine smells really sweet and tastes that way too. I did not even add sweetener to the steeped cup. I do like this, but being 100% honest I feel like I need another component here. Like, maybe, apple jasmine…or Read More

Red White and Blue Black Tea from 52Teas. . . .

My desire for berry flavored teas is relatively new. I don’t usually gravitate towards fruit. I don’t know why but lately ive had a craving for berry teas! Ive actually had this sample for a while that I received with one of my orders from 52 Teas and I figured that my being in the mood for berry was a good opportunity to try it. Something I have noticed about 52 Teas is that their black tea is very bold. If you dont generally care for bold black tea, then you may feel like it tends to overpower the cup. Read More
