Roses are Red, Berries are Blue from Kipers Lil Tea Shop. . . .

Roses are red, berries are blue, this tea from Kipers Lil Tea Shop is delicious, and good for you too!

Cotton Candy Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . .

I am a sucker for 52 Teas flavored genmaichas. Their Marshmallow Treat stole my heart long ago and I have yet to turn back. Not to mention, some flavors just call to me when I am ordering teas. Things that scream “sweet” and “dessert” almost always catch my attention and Cotton Candy is at the top of that list. That is why the minute I opened the email advertising this Cotton Candy Genmaicha tea, I started building a cart. I was quick but not quick enough because the large packs of this tea were gone before I even opened the Read More

Casey’s .45 Gunpowder Blast from 52Teas. . .

  We review a lot of 52Teas here on The SororiTea Sisters but there is a good reason for that.  A good chunk of us are big fans of the blends that Anne and company creates and we just can’t get enough.  I personally have over 50 different blends from 52Teas in my own tea stash. There is just something so incredibly intimate with each of the blends that 52Teas creates.  Since each blend is hand blended with love and passion, you know you are in for a treat when you take your first sip of any 52Teas blends.

On Wisconsin from A Quarter To Tea. . .

This tea caught my eye due to the description of cheesecake and honey. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? This is an Oolong blend and it contains REAL pieces of graham crackers. The Oolong itself is actually a little bit more floral than I would have thought. However, the floral aspect works well with the honey. The taste of cheesecake is not something I would have picked out initially, but thinking about it now I do taste it lingering once the sip is gone Opposed to what you would think when hearing the description of this yummy blend, i’m not quite sure Read More

Canoe Lake Blend

On Canada Day, I was looking for a festive tea to celebrate with when I happened upon this tea…Canoe Lake Blend by Pluck Teas. This tea that Pluck calls “a truly Canadian blend” is made up of black tea, rooibos, sunflower, jasmine, calendula petals, real maple syrup, licorice root, cocoa, safflower petals, cornflowers, and natural flavour. Meant to remind you of campfires and sugar shacks, I thought it was worth a try. I brewed it at 200F for 4 minutes as the recommended steeping parameters of 5 minutes in boiling water seemed like it might be a bit much. Using Read More
