Zen from Tazo. . .

I grabbed Tazo’s Zen™ at the dentist’s office without realizing the dreaded mint* was inside it. However, I’m pleased to announce that the mint isn’t the primary characteristic of this tea! * A note about mint: WHY IS IT EVERYWHERE? Mint is for toothpaste only. Anyway, this lemon-mint green tea is mostly lemon with a toasty green flavor. It’s like a roasty, nutty kind of green, which is interesting against the citrus-y (and, okay, a LITTLE minty) high notes. I think this is a nice choice for recovering from the harsh blows of a dentist visit. (I need $4k of Read More

Glenburn+packing

Glenburn Estate Darjeeling from Yatra Tea Company. . . . .

Green tea is what I’ve been craving lately, so when my fellow sister, CuppaGeek, told me about this amazing tea, I just knew I had to try it.  And I have to say, this tea IS the green tea of the moment at The SororiTea Sisters. . in my opinion. The description of this tea states that this Glenburn Estates Darjeeling has a lemon buttery flavor and they aren’t wrong.  Brewed up per the parameters provided on the package, this tea yields this lovely smooth buttery flavor with a hint of a citrus finish.  Towards the end of each sip Read More

RYCBAR by Fandom Teas. . . .

I’m a Doctor Who fan and, even with the information that this is an “impossible girl” inspired tea, it still took me several seconds to figure out what the name of this blend meant. Maybe my brain was just really slow today? Hopefully you can figure it out faster. 😉 I steeped two teaspoons of this tea in ten ounces of 175-degree water for three minutes. While steeping, it starts smelling fruity right away. This is a flavored tea (raspberry-pomegranate flavored) and the tea liquid is much darker than an unflavored green tea would. That might be from the raspberry, Read More

Kind Green by Love Some Tea. . . . .

The tea leaves are long, twisty, intact, and dark green. I used the entire sample packet and steeped it for 3 minutes at 175 degrees in about 6 ounces of water. This tea starts to smell quite buttery and floral while steeping. The water’s not turning color much, but it smells very nice. (When I saw the leaves and smelled the sweet and buttery flavor I kind of forgot this was a green tea rather than an oolong tea, so I was expecting the water to get darker than it did.) After steeping, the tea liquid is a light whitish Read More
