Movie Night from Pluck Teas. . . .

A little while back, Pluck Teas was kind enough to send me a selection of their teas to try. They were very generous and allowed me to pick what interested me and as someone who has a low key obsession with genmaichas, this Movie NIght tea was at the top of my list. It was only after it arrived that I realized I actually tried this tea once before at a brunch restaurant in Toronto, which is weird given I don’t usually order teas at restaurants because I don’t trust them to make it properly. Nevertheless, I recall liking it Read More

Strawberry Genmaicha from Socra Tea Detroit. . . .

I am a sucker for all flavored genmaichas.  I don’t come across them very often, but when I do, I just can’t say no.  I eagerly and greedily devour these blends whenever I can. Strawberry Genmaicha  from Socra Tea Detroit is no exception.  Start off with a gorgeous bed of green tea with toasted rice and huge and I mean HUGE pieces of strawberries.  And these are freeze dried strawberries to boot.  So they are simply gorgeous. The blend itself is stunning while you look at it in your tea pot, brewing with water freshly prepped right around 195F.  The Read More

Cotton Candy Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . .

I am a sucker for 52 Teas flavored genmaichas. Their Marshmallow Treat stole my heart long ago and I have yet to turn back. Not to mention, some flavors just call to me when I am ordering teas. Things that scream “sweet” and “dessert” almost always catch my attention and Cotton Candy is at the top of that list. That is why the minute I opened the email advertising this Cotton Candy Genmaicha tea, I started building a cart. I was quick but not quick enough because the large packs of this tea were gone before I even opened the Read More

Campfire Strawberry from A Quarter To Tea. . . .

  Basically all of the A Quarter to Tea offerings sound awesome and I have yet to come across a Monthly Subscription Box that didn’t have at least one tea that got my mouth watering. However, June’s Box is a true winner. Each tea is like a dream mixture of my favorite flavors. There is Blueberry Vanilla Peach, Raspberry Coconut Cheesecake, and Hummingbird which is a black tea with banana, vanilla and pecan praline. In addition to those and the sample of Watermelon Agua Fresca, there is also this tea, Campfire Strawberry, a genmaicha and lapsang blend with strawberries, graham Read More
