Sweet Dreams from BlendBee. . . .

You know when you find a tea company that you just love SO MUCH that you want to order their entire tea catalog? I have a small but mighty list– and just added one more. Blend Bee, will you be my tea-bff? I recently ordered a design-your-own blend from Blend Bee (more on that to come), and the awesome owner, Jamah, told me she thought I’d be a fan of her Sweet Dreams tea, a lemony, custardy honeybush. And she was so right! One of the reasons I love Blend Bee so much (besides the awesome aforementioned customer service) is Read More

Chocolate Eclair Tea. . . .#52Teas

My sister has never been a lover of tea. For a long time she could not understand my love of the beverage and it was only recently that she has started actually trying teas. It started with afternoon teas, at those she found a couple she liked and started to build a small stash, then I learned that she was actually drinking her teas nightly, and now she’s starting to get it. That is awesome in one respect but now she’s moving in on my teas, which I guess is fine but occasionally it means I am losing my very Read More

Apple Crisp from A Quarter To Tea. . . . .

Well, this blend has me curious because I can see pieces of oats! I mean, come on, we all know the best part about apple crisp is the cinnamon, sugar, and oat topping. I really love fall and I really love fall desserts. I mean don’t get me wrong, spring is great, but right now I am wishing for fall. Especially after drinking this blend. With every sip I am dying to go apple picking and then come home and make a freshly baked apple crisp! I am dead serious when I say that steeped, this blend smells just like Read More

Peach Habenero Salsa from A Quarter To Tea. . . . .

My stepdad is the hot sauce king. The man can handle heat. I don’t do too bad but he is a beast. The rest of my family…not so great with spice. So, when my sister and I were at the One of a Kind show not too long ago and we were looking to get my step dad some hot sauces, it was put on me to try them out. Habeneros were just the tip of the iceberg…well, more like a volcano. One particularly hot concoction was made by a farmer that crossbred peaches with hot peppers and that really Read More

Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . . .

There are teas in my collection I know I can rely on and this is one of them. I come back to this tea when I want something a little bit sweet and a little bit toasty. I’m typically not someone who loves green teas, but this one I can always enjoy. The dry leaf smells like green tea ice cream and after water has been added, I smell more roasted caramel popcorn. Mmmm… Sipping.. definitely a bit more roasty than expected. The marshmallow pops up in the background, but it’s actually more of a sweetness and not that specific Read More
