This Is My Boomstick from Geeky Teas. . . . .

I feel like This Is My Boomstick is the kind of tea that Confucius drank while he was doing all that writing. Boomstick strikes the balance of meditative and action. Boomstick is the flavor of Chinese calligraphy, fireworks, and wall-building. (FACT: it’s not possible to see the Great Wall from space. How disappointing is reality?) Boomstick tastes like intellectual conversations and long travels. The tea itself shows up in cute little rolled-up balls. When I showed them to a coworker, she said “that must be a tedious job.” I like to imagine that the workers are watching Netflix while hand-crafting, Read More

The Cake Is A Lie from Geeky Teas. . .

The tea’s name, “The Cake Is A Lie,” is a “Portal” reference. It’s a PlayStation game in which you use your wits to survive through a corrupt company’s testing facility. You’re told at the beginning that cake will be served at the end of your testing, but spray painted messages begin to pop up saying “the cake is a lie.” And it is. The company expects you to die, so why would it prepare a cake? So it’s kind of fitting that I don’t think this tea quite tastes like cake. (A LIE. Though I think they meant it to Read More

The Brew Is Out There from Geeky Teas. . . . .

This green tea is just the right thing for a person with Election Recovery jitters. I spent the night of the United States’ election getting progressively sicker as the tides turned against my candidate of choice. I mean literally sick. Like, throwing up. I have “no chill,” as the kids these days say. No poker face. My body betrays my true feelings every time. I am a tender, fragile flower. This tea is the perfect flavor and softness for such faint-of-heart, delicate creatures as myself. It’s a light vanilla citrus (orange/lemon) taste on a springy green base. The flavor is Read More

Check this out! Earl Grey, Hot from Geeky Teas

Earl Grey, Hot from Geeky Teas was a tea that another sister has already reviewed here at SororiTea Sisters but I enjoy a sturdy cuppa EG so I thought I would also throw my 2 cents worth in! Earl Grey is one of the most recognizable flavored teas the world has seen and Geeky Teas came up with their own take on it with Earl Grey, Hot. For those of you who are Star Trek fans you may remember Picard and his famous quote and Earl Grey, Hot from Geeky Teas is a nod to that. As for the flavor Read More

Irish Whiskey Cream from Tea & Absinthe – The Other Irish Breakfast

As the weather gets colder, I get a craving for sweeter, more dessert-like teas.  So when it was the first real, cold and blustery day of the season, I was excited to taste Irish Whiskey Cream from Tea & Absinthe. The dry leaf smells mild but sweet, like black tea with a hint of caramel.  When brewed, this blend smells amazing, as rich and decadent as crème brûlée.  I take my tea without milk or sugar, and the dessert flavors were still very forward and enjoyable. While there is “cream” in the name, the sweetness in this tea is less Read More
