Tree House of Tea from Adagio Teas. . . . #TeaRex #MonsterBrew #RocketFuel

Beyond the wonderful madness of custom fandom blends on Adagio Teas’ website, they do have a few blends and custom sets of their own.  I tried one of their more whimsical sets, the Tree House series. The vibrant, attractive designs of dinosaurs and monsters on the tins was enough to sway me into giving these teas a try.  The Tree House series are all herbal decaf teas, and meant to be kid-friendly in style, contents, and taste.  Fair warning: these teas brew up strong, fast, so feel free to keep the steep times shorter than you expect.  It’s easy to 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.

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

Let’s Kick It Up A Notch! Ginger Chili Tisane from Arbor Teas

  I  don’t know what’s going on with my tastebuds lately but the spicier the tea, the better it tastes to me. I used to pass over ginger teas all the time because I just wasn’t a fan. Now, I’m searching high and low for ginger and even black pepper tea blends. Just can’t get enough of them. Which is why Ginger Chili Tisane really fit what my taste buds were craving. Plus the fact that this blend has green rooibos in it, just makes this tea that more inviting. Ginger Chili Tisane is a mix of green rooibos, ginger, lemon Read More

Maharaja Chai and Samurai Chai Blend from Teavana. . . . .

  If you’re anything like me, your friends and family know you love your tea– and have been gifting accordingly this Christmas. In a recent office secret santa swap, I hit the total tea jackpot– a brand new gravity (gravi-tea– heee :)) steeper for my desk at work, and a GIGANTIC tin of this chai blend from Teavana. Score! Now, early on in my tea-drinking years, Teavana was an initial fave, but in the last few years as I’ve discovered amazing small-batch companies and other small businesses that I love to patronize, I don’t really shop at this iconic mall Read More
