Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Raspberry Rhubarb from Cup of Love. . .

Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Raspberry Rhubarb is a blended Green Tea and Black Tea Duo! The funny thing is I was thinking it was Strawberry Rhubarb but that’s because that used to be my favorite type of pie and I must be hungry for it. Raspberry Rhubarb is just as good and plus I have been gobbling up raspberries like they are going out of style lately! Enough blabbing and on to the tea, eh? Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Raspberry Rhubarb is from Cup of Love. And I’m truly LOVING it! The Sencha Green Tea is of medium strength and delicious! The Read More

Sweet Mango Peach Tea from Gypsy Soul Tea . . . . .

I have been on an iced tea kick lately. My friend got me an iced tea press and it is my new obsession. Consequently, I am going through fruit teas like crazy. That is why when this sample arrived, I jumped at the chance to steep it up. Made with apple, hibiscus, pineapple, peach, papaya, lemon peel, and natural flavors, but no mango to be found. Sipping on it now, it’s flavor is quite subtle and light. There is no tartness from the hibiscus which could be a plus for many but that also seems to be a side effect Read More

Passion Berry Jolt from Tiesta Tea. . . . .

This tea is FIERCE. It’s a black tea with super-vibrant raspberry/passionfruit flavor. The tea is robust. The flavor is spiky. The flower petals are lovely. You know how Rihanna had that red hair for a while? And it was really hot and bright and worked on her? That is this tea. It’s like Rihanna, turned into a tea. It’s a fast-paced hip-hop album of a tea. This tea will not mince words with you and tell you that the dress works when it does not. This tea will not pretend to like that guy you’re dating if he’s a wasteoid. Read More

ROOIBOS DU HAMMAM tea from Palais des Thés. . . .

I impulse-bought this tasting set  online and then forgot I’d done so. This sounds normal until you realize I have Amazon Prime, so it arrived in two days. My husband said “you have packages!” and I was like “I can’t remember for the life of me what I’ve done!” It sounds like the next thing I should say here is “and that’s how I realized I was an alcoholic.” I’m not. I’m something for which there is no meetings: a tea addict. And I regret nothing! This unexpected tea is delicious! This tea combines “green date, luscious berries and the Read More

Coquito from A Quarter To Tea. . . . . .

A few weeks ago, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts (The Sporkful, in case you’re wondering), and host Dan Pashman brought up a coconut milk eggnog drink called Coquito, popular in Puerto Rico. The way he described this spicy, creamy, coconutty delight gave me insta-cravings, and I immediately started googling for coquito recipes to try on my own. The holiday hustle and bustle and some personal difficulties got in my way, of course, and I promptly forgot about my quest to try this delicious Puerto Rican treat. So imagine my surprise when I opened my A Quarter Read More
