Frontier-Co-op-Bulk-Blueberry-Green-Kukicha-Tea-Organic-2987_4

Blueberry Green Kukicha from Frontier Organic. . . . . .

When I smelled this tea, I knew right away I needed to make it into iced tea. I prefer fruitier teas cold for some reason. It smells like blueberries right away, and when you pour hot water over the tea, it really smells like blueberries! Kukicha tea is also known as twig tea. It’s prepared from the stems and stalks of the tea shrub. That’s exactly what this tea looks like, twigs with some dried blueberries in the mix. Twig tea, or Kukicha tea is a nutritional powerhouse. It has six times more calcium than cow’s milk, and more vitamin Read More

PB&J from Tea and Tins. . . . . .

Today is a lazy Sunday. For breakfast I made homemade blueberry muffins and a side of bacon. I always appreciate the combination of salty and sweet. The two flavors are just a match made in heaven. The sweet blueberry muffins and the salty bacon made for a delectable breakfast, that even my guy enjoyed. Thinking about the combo of salty and sweet reminded me that I have a delicious tea just begging for me to try it, PB & J by Tea and Tins! Peanut butter is salty and jelly is sweet, so clearly this is right up my ally! Read More

Fruity Pebbles from Tiesta Tea. . . . . .

Two things to disclose before we jump into this tea review, friends: 1. I’ve never actually drank this tea hot (WHAT. I know. I promise I can still give you a good review). 2. It doesn’t actually taste like fruity pebbles, as the packaging claims. While my breakfast-cereal-loving heart is a bit dismayed by this, I can get over it for now. I’ve talked about this before, but I’m not a huge fan of teas that make claims– detoxing, dieting, etc. While I think herbs can be healing and great supplements to living healthfully, I immediately get a little side-eye Read More

Bali from Dammann Frères. . . . . .

I had this yesterday hot, but got sucked into the vortex of Various Appointments and came back to it cold. And it was… much more awesome cold. And I thought: “is it gauche to drink it cold? Where are the green tea rules?” So today, I decided to risk being Terminally Uncouth and iced this as my Midday Ice With Lunch Soda Replacement. (Trying to quit soda is… going… okay. I’m a Trash Monster that loves stomach dissolving beverages. I’m trying to improve.) And yum, guys. This tea is a springy garden blast. It’s got rich green notes, sparkly flower Read More

Peach Iced Green Tea from LeCharm. . . . . .

It’s rare if I purchase a bottled iced GREEN tea in a store. Usually because I find most of them have added and unnecessary ingredients in them and/or sweeteners. Many of you know that I drink my teas straight-up with nothing added. So when I try a tea that is something other than “unsweetened” it just tastes so ‘OFF’ to me. When I saw this Peach ICED Green Tea product from LeCharm arrive I was a little nervous. I was assuming it would have those ‘things’ I dread in bottled and store bought teas. But you know what they say Read More
