green coconut

Coconut Green Tea from LST aka Love Some Tea. . . .

I love green tea, and I love coconut so I was pretty excited to try this tea. It was better than I could have hoped. t’s a smooth green tea with a very slight smoky flavor, and an amazing coconut aroma and flavor. I could drink this delicious tea all day. It’s clean, and decadent. It has that kind of fatty coconut flavor, and I mean that in the best way. The coconut kind of cuts the earthiness of the green tea. I had mine warm and it was a wonderful way to wake up. I have a feeling this Read More

Lupicia

Soleil Levant from Lupicia. . . . .

These Lupicia teabags are wrapped in the most adorably festive wrappers. Little animals partaking in in Christmas festivities adorn each bag and it is delightful. What is not so delightful? The chemical sent of this Soleil Levant tea bag when I removed it from its packaging. Unfortunately that chemical scent carries over to the steeped tea as well. Drinking the tea, I get a muscat flavor first and foremost from the white grapes. That mixes with a pithy citrus which ties in to a bitterness that underlies the whole sip. I think this tea shows potential but using the suggested Read More

Rainbow Sherbet from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

In my early tween years, I was lucky enough to have one of my best friends living right down the block. With our minor amounts of freedom (given our newly advanced age of 12), we were able to bike around our neighborhood to our hearts’ content, and often snuck a few extra blocks in to get to the local general shop just around the corner. Our favorite treats to stock up on? Big League Chew, and Mambos, of course– and one time, when we were feeling really adventurous: rainbow sherbet. Now, let me paint you a little picture real quick: Read More

saffron kahwa green tea

Saffron Kahwa from Tea Trunk . . .

A saffron tea had me intrigued. This is not an ingredient usually used in tea blends so I was interested to see what it contributed. I had no idea what to expect but there is a creaminess here that I am at a loss for where it is coming from (would saffron add creaminess? I think that seems off. Maybe it is the almonds?). In addition to the saffron and the almonds noted above, this tea boasts a chai tea profile with rose petals. All on a green tea base. Tea Trunk recommends this as a detox tea, one to Read More

August Peach Green Tea from Simpson and Vail. . . .

Apparently peaches in august are sweeter than other times of the year. I didn’t know this until now. Learn something new everyday, right? I really enjoy the mix of peach flavor and green tea. Theres something really crisp and refreshing about them together that reminds me of springtime air. This tea in particular tastes just like spring, to me. There are two peach teas that are my favorite right now, both of them come from Anne’s brilliant blends over at 52 Teas- Peach Cardamom Green Tea and Peach Cheesecake Honeybush. Both of them are just sensational. Unfortunately all of 52 Read More
