Sun & Cloud Mist from 52Teas. . . .

I’ve had about three travel containers of this iced by the time I got around to writing this. One arts festival, one movie, and one lunch. And I’ve enjoyed all three! This tea, though not currently available, is one to keep an eye out for, since it appears to come and go from 52Teas’ site occasionally. It’s a green tea that tastes like sugary lemon. You know how you go to arts festivals or carnivals and get thirsty? So you pay $6 for a big plastic cup of handmade lemonade? They grind up the lemons in front of you then Read More

Tokyo from Harney & Sons. . . . .

I’m trying to class myself up. I’ve purchased new clothes, almost figured out how to style my hair, and am going to conquer matcha tea. You don’t care about my clothes/hair, so let’s talk about matcha, which is so bitter and weird I can’t get in there to like it. I thought maybe what I could do is SIDLE UP TO MATCHA. Maybe like attack approximations, getting closer and closer. So I bought “Tokyo” by Harney & Sons, which had a bunch of small green leaves, plus a bit of sesame seed and caramel. The dry smell is heavenly. When Read More

Day 8 of the 52Teas Countdown to Christmas!

On the 8th Day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me…Creamy Eggnog Dusted with Nutmeg Green Tea! (Every time I write that line, I totally sing it in my head) So, I feel like eggnog is one of those things that you either love or hate. However- I am one of those people who actually is a little in between. I don’t really drink a glass of eggnog, I feel like I’m drinking cream.  I do, however, enjoy the actual taste of eggnog and eggnog-flavored desserts. For example- I’m pretty sure McDonalds comes out with an Eggnog Milkshake in the Read More

On the Fifth Day of Christmas, 52Teas sent to me. . .

On the 5th Day of Christmas 52 Teas gave to me….my actual true love: Banana Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha Green Tea. I am a huge fan of banana and marshmallow. It’s funny because the way I heard about 52 Teas was by doing a search of “marshmallow tea” on Steepster. I ended up coming across 52 Teas’ Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha! For that reason, that blend is actually pretty special to me, and I’m very happy its part of the permanent collection. Any twist on it, be it banana or pumpkin spice latte or chai spice or anything in between, I am Read More

On the Second Day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me. . .

On the second day of Christmas, 52 Teas gave to me…. Holiday Marmalade Green Tea! I have been really excited to dig into these teas. With Day 1, I actually had opened it on the 1st of December, not realizing that we were starting these on December 12th! So, I kind of got a little “teaser” at the beginning of the month and have been counting down the days till I could officially start. One thing I really enjoy about 52 Teas as a company is that their blends are always so unique. I feel like a lot of tea Read More
