Orange & Papaya from Tea-Shirt Teas. . . .

I’ve been in a green tea mood lately, tasting all the flavors and mix-ins that go best with those lighter tea leaves.  It was the perfect day to try Orange and Papaya from Tea Shirt Teas. I was immediately impressed by the delicious scent of the tea in the dry leaf.  It was amazingly fruity, and hard to resist smelling the dry leaves in my mug while I waited for the water to boil.  The leaves themselves are all dressed up for the occasion, with big chunks of dried papaya and orange slices mixed in among the green tea.

Boba Fett Fandom Blend from Adagio Teas. . . .

The fandom blends section of the Adagio website is a wonderful, wacky, wild west of tea blends. Any movie or video game or book you can think of has a series of community-made teas meticulously blended and designed for your tea-brewing pleasure.  One downside is that the blend creators can change or remove their blends at any time.  I’ve got a tea today from the Adagio fandom vault, a blend that’s no longer posted, but we’ll still take a look at it’s fun, fandom flavors: Boba Fett from Chelsea Drangsholt. This green tea blend is fruity with a bit of Read More

Coconut Flan Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . .

So I am only about half a year late but I am getting into the 12 Teas of Christmas. This particular tea, Coconut Flan Genmaicha, was from the 4th night of Christmas and unfortunately that means it is no longer available. However, in case it comes back, I will probably try snatching some more of this up because it is a tasty tea. I have never had flan personally but my understanding is it is a gelatinous custard with a caramel top (drizzle? coating?). So if I am wrong about what flan is I am sorry but that is what Read More

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

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
