Strawberry Grapefruit White Tea from Socra Tea Detroit. . . . .

Even with the summer months coming to an end and the fall months beginning, I’m still finding myself drawn to my spring and summer white teas.  White teas were my “jam” this summer. I couldn’t get enough.  I just found myself craving the crisp floral notes that white teas provide. Strawberry Grapefruit White Tea from Scora Tea Detroit had me from the start.  Start with a gorgeous blend of white and green teas, huge gooseberries, and beautiful pomegranate blossoms.  The aromas that swirl you while you steep this tea and bright and so uplifting. Prepared with fresh water right around Read More

Forest Friend blend by Leslie Kiesler on Adagio Teas

Adagio Teas is where I credit my loose leaf tea beginnings. They have a variety of teas for both beginners and experts, but their success comes from their lively fandom blend community.  There’s a themed-blend for every movie, book, and video game out there.  I know I’ve had a great time designing my own flavors, and I’m always interested in trying new blends from other tea lovers. My favorite summer blend of late has been Forest Friend by Leslie Kiesler.  This blend is a homage to the main creature in the film, My Neighbor Totoro, of Studio Ghibli fame.  To Read More

Strawberry Shortcake from The NecessiTeas. . . .

I have had my eye on trying teas from this company for a while. I am a fanatic when it comes to dessert teas and The NecessiTeas have tons of options on that front so I am all in. CuppaGeek was kind enough to send me Strawberry Shortcake to try and I am so happy that she did since it is amazing! I knew it would be good as soon as I opened the package. The creamy strawberry smell that came out of the bag was mouthwatering. I loved the nice big pieces of strawberry I could see in the blend. Read More

Strawberry Cheesecake from The NecessiTeas. . . .

I love cheesecake. Before I moved in with my current boyfriend and had our daughter I actually lived right across from The Cheesecake Factory, and let me tell you I was there after work getting to-go cheesecake more often than i’ll ever admit! Classic cheesecake is plain with a strawberry sauce, and while I do usually go towards the more “wild” flavors like Oreo, key lime, or anything peanut buttery, I do love me a good ‘ol slice of classic strawberry cheesecake! Unfortunately, I no longer live close to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant so the next best thing to satisfy Read More

Strawberry Shortcake from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

One of my absolute, all-time, favorite summer desserts is strawberry shortcake. I have really, really fond memories of strawberry shortcake from when I was a kid. My nana and papa would always have BBQ get-together at their house and my nana would buy biscuits from the grocery store and we would pile them with cool whip and fresh strawberries. It was so good, so cool, and fresh, and summery. When I think of a strawberry shortcake tea, I want it to be crisp and fresh tasting…and of course, strawberry! Upon opening my pre-packaged tin of Strawberry Shortcake by The NecessiTEA’s Read More
