Limoncello from The NecessiTeas. . . . .#desserttea

I am so impressed with this tea that I immediately visited the website and ordered more. First of all, it smells DIVINE! I usually like to add sweeteners to my tea, but this tea is perfect just the way it is. Limoncello is a refreshing pick-me-up in the evening. I can also see it as a go-to on an under-the-weather day as a soothing drink for a sore throat. I also tried it as an iced tea. WOW! I will definitely be serving and drinking a lot of Limoncello iced tea this summer (possibly with some fresh mint leaves). The Read More

A Cookie Tea With A Green Rooibos Base from Simpson and Vail. . . .

I only recently found out about Simpson and Vail. I have really loved each tea ive tried from them. I’m not usually a huge fan a rooibos though. For me, it is almost always a little too “woody” tasting. However, I couldn’t resist getting a little bit of the Caramel Walnut Shortbread Rooibos. Doesn’t it sound divine? Like, I am now debating making a caramel walnut shortbread cookie because the combination just sounds so yummy! Last night I was up until 4 a.m with my little one. I have an (almost) 8 month old daughter and I don’t know if Read More

And sometimes if you are lucky, tea swaps can lead to making tea friends. You know…the people who you meet up with to exchange teas and talk about your lives. Now, if you are REALLY lucky, you might even find a tea twin. For me that person is the wonderful Roswell Strange, a former Sororitea Sister. Her and I started our tea journey at the same time and quickly learned we liked Read More

Harbor Time Tea from Steepers Artisan Teas

Harbor Time Tea from Steepers Artisan Teas had me do a double take. WHY? Because of the wonderfully green ingredients! This tea contains: Peppermint, Green Rooibos, Hawthorn Leaf, Spearmint, Blackberry Leaf. Everything is all natural and pleasant to all the senses! Another Green Rooibos!? YAY! Green Rooibos finally seems to be stepping up and facing the Red Rooibos! I felt for too long that Green has been hanging out in the background while the Red had all the fun! Harbor Time Tea from Steepers Artisan Teas has just enough Green Rooibos to make everything work in this blend of flavors! Read More
