A Dark Night Orange Spice Pu’erh from Plum Deluxe. . . .

I’ve always been a black-tea-with-milk-and-sugar kinda girl (thanks, semester abroad in London!). Now, as the years have passed, my tastes have matured, and I’ll happily venture out to less traditional teas and more traditional preparations, but there’s something about a bold black tea paired with creamy + sweet that gets me right in my cozy, nostalgic heart. So you can imagine my bummer when I was recently put on an allergy test for to be without my beloved coconut milk (the only “milk” left that I could tolerate) for thirty days. SOB. As there’s a silver lining to every cloud, Read More

Spiced Orappangele Green Tea from 52Teas. . . . . .

Eggnog Chai from 52Teas. . . .A Unique Winter Refreshment!

Full disclosure: up until recently, I’d never had eggnog. (Cue GASP). On a whim, I picked up some coconut milk eggnog from the grocery store pre-Christmas last year– why, even though I’d never had it and was kinda grossed out by the thought? Who knows. But man, am I glad I did– because you guys, (coconut milk) eggnog is DELISH. Come this year, I’ve been eggnog latte-ifying any tea I can get my hands on.

Chocolate Eclair Black Tea from 52Teas. . .A Chocolate Dessert Treat!

My darling tea-ple, before we get into this post about the wonderful 52 Teas Chocolate Eclair blend, I want to introduce you to Mr Nibbles: He sits on my lap when things go Hilariously Awry.
