Black Forest Cherry from The Tea Merchant. . . .

This tea traveled all the way from South Africa to join my tea stash in Toronto. Better than that? It arrived with two other Tea Merchant teas in tow: Cranberry and Strawberry Cream. They were all intriguing but my family unanimously determined that this was the best smelling of the three, an interesting decision given that everyone else in my family doesn’t like cherries. I, on the other hand, am a cherry fiend and couldn’t wait to dive in. I have now had this tea a few times since it first arrived and I think I like it best cold Read More

Wild Orange Blossom from Teavana. . . . .

When I first discovered tea I had no idea what I was doing. I went to DAVIDsTEA and Teavana and bought at least 50 grams of everything that seemed remotely interesting.

Cassis & Blueberry from Lupicia

I’ve been ‘sitting on this’ review for a while. Not because I didn’t LOVE the tea – because I clearly DID – it’s because I didn’t want to throw the empty bag away. Seriously! Cassis & Blueberry from Lupicia is a heavily flavored black tea. It’s flavored with Blueberry and Cassis…in case you don’t know what Cassis is…it’s usually a liquor made from black currants. This flavored black tea is sweet and tart and my FAVORITE PART is that the sweet and tart come from the blueberry and currants and NOT hibiscus! Woot! NO hibiscus! I’ll say it again…NO HIBISCUS!
