Elderberry Blend from Storehouse Teas. . . .

I literally purchased this tea because it was purple. I also like berries, and I have to cut back on caffeine, so this tea seemed to check off a lot of my boxes. But mostly I will buy anything in purple. I once drove a purple car. She looked precisely like this. Like the ingredients, Elderberry Blend’s steeped final result is a plum/magenta color. It’s super-appealing in my clear travel container. But enough about the appearance! WHAT OF THE FLAVOR? YOU ASK. Elderberry Blend tastes great iced on-the-go. Granted, in today’s case, “on-the-go” means “at my desk,” but I traveled Read More

Edith Wharton’s Black Tea Blend from Simpson and Vail. . . .

I have a confession to make. Edith Wharton isn’t an author I ever followed. That may come as a shock to many of you and for that I am sorry. After reading her biography I was intrigued, however. Edith Wharton’s Black Tea Blend is one of the newest additions to Simpson & Vail’s Literary Tea Line. Ingredients include Darjeeling black tea, organic ginger pieces, mallow blossoms, marigold petals and flavoring. So eventho I cannot speak/write about my personal love for Edith herself – I can tell you about my love for this tea. Of course I’m interested in just about Read More

Winter Treat from 52Teas. . . .

I told my husband I’ve been borrowing his t-shirts sometimes, and he said that was “sneaky.” Later in the day, I told him I’m drinking a “Winter Treat” tea in August, and he said that too, was “sneaky.” I don’t think drinking a winter tea in September is sneaky; it’s more “ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT, MAAAAAAN.” I won’t let the seasons dictate what I drink, maaaaaan. I’ll wear white after labor day AT A WEDDING, maaaaan. Like a teenager who skims Marx after their history homework and uses that shaky grasp to buy a Rage Against The Machine album, maaaaan. BERNIE 2020. I don’t Read More

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
