Buttered Spiced Rum Green Tea from 52Teas

Gentle, warm, and soothing are 3 words I would use to describe Buttered Spiced Rum Green Tea from 52 Teas. Oddly…these are the same 3 words that 52 Teas used to describe this tea, too! Organic ingredients include green tea, oranges, cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, nutmeg and natural flavors. 52 Teas doesn’t mess around!

No. I didn’t think so. As much as I hate the phrase Read More

Like, super-beefy. I spend upwards of 8 hours a day Read More

Where are the green tea rules?” So today, I decided to risk being Terminally Uncouth and iced this as my Midday Ice With Lunch Soda Replacement. (Trying to quit soda is… going… okay. I’m a Trash Monster that loves stomach dissolving beverages. I’m trying to improve.) And yum, guys. This tea is a springy garden blast. It’s got rich green notes, sparkly flower Read More
