Hidden Meadow from BlendBee. . . . .

Hidden Meadow from BlendBee caught my eye as I starred at my stash of tea under my work desk recently. I opened the bag and mentally transported into that Hidden Meadow this tea speaks of. This is a flavored green tea folks! And a great one at that! It contains China Green Tea, sweet Marshmallow Root, creamy Vanilla, and fresh spearmint! This flavor combo makes for a creamy, dreamy, minty-fresh, sweet treat! It’s creamy upfront followed by a welcomed sweet-mint flavor combo and the mint lingers nicely well after the sip is complete. This is a fantastic flavored green! I Read More

Almond Cookie from Tea & Tins. . . .

Lately I have had a serious obsession with pistachio ice cream. Like, I have eaten almost 3 quarts of it in the past 2 weeks. Well, pistachios themselves have a very mild flavor. Subsequently, the ice cream itself is actually flavored with almond. Have you ever noticed that pistachio ice cream kind of smells like biscottis? Well, that’s because of the almond flavoring. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen many pistachio ice cream teas circulating around in our little “tea-world” as of late. So, when I saw Almond Cookie by Tea & Tins I figured that it may help curb my craving Read More

Strawberry Shake from DAVIDsTea. . .

  I have been (im)patiently waiting for DAVIDsTEA to come out with some new “summery” teas. It has finally happened! Yay! So their new collection they’re calling “Malt Shop” and all the teas are based off of ice cream. They not only have ice cream themed teas, but new tea tins and mugs with ice cream print on them. Talk about cute! I definitely went all out during my DAVIDsTEA shopping spree, and I am happy I did because I am loving the teas! The first one I tried was Strawberry Shake. It is described as a green tea with Read More

Spiced Cucumber Melon from 52Teas . . . . .

If you were a teenage girl in the 90s-2000s (raises hand), there’s not a doubt in my mind that at some point, you owned a bottle of cucumber melon body splash. (Am I right, or am I right?) When I spotted this tea in my sample pile, my mind immediately jumped to that infamous, chemically-fresh scent of my adolescence. Luckily, upon first sniff, I’m totally blown away– in the best way possible. There’s hints of the true cucumber-melon notes from the scent we’ve all come to know and love, but authentically, not chemically and fake at all. Underneath the bright Read More

Green Tea With Coconut from Harney & Sons. . . . .

This is a sweet little darling of a tea! They had it out at the dentist’s office beside a giant Starbucks machine, so I decided to try it. (They also had some Tazo blacks, but I’ve tried most of those, so this was a moment of adventure). The trip to the dentist’s office was awful, but this tea was delish. It’s a green tea with lemongrass, vanilla, coconut and ginger. It’s a soothing little dessert! If you don’t like sweet, this might not be for you, but if you have a sweet tooth, this is tons of taste with very Read More
