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

A Honeybush Cookie Dessert Tea. . . #52Teas

Being honest, i’m scared of molasses. I use it when i’m baking gingerbread, but I just refuse to eat it on its own. I don’t know how some people just pour it over their pancakes, I feel like it smells salty and weird and it really just freaks me out. So when I saw the name of this blend I totally held off on trying it. Although, the blend did smell like spice cookies….so I decided to give it a try anyways. I could really smell the honeybush once this tea was steeped. I absolutely love honeybush and I actually 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

Strawberry Flavored Genmaicha from 52Teas. . . . Sounds Delish!

I am a sucker for flavored genmaichas. I absolutely love them. Once I tried flavored genmaicha, plain genmaicha never tasted the same! So, of course, when I saw that 52 Teas had come out with a new flavor I definitely had to try it. I am not opposed to fruit blends but they’re also not my favorite. Strawberry is yummy, though, so I was excited for this. Upon opening my taster packet I could just smell the strawberry and toasted rice! Yummy. There were also chunks of freeze dried strawberries throughout the whole blend which made me happy. I did Read More

Mary Enjoys Cease & Desist from 52Teas. . . . .

With a name like Cease & Desist, I knew this tea had to have a good story. And with a company like 52 Teas? I knew it had to be a good tea! Apparently, this tea was originally named after a favorite alcoholic horchata-esque treat (that rhymes with Thumb-chata), but after being served with a cease & desist letter, the name had to be changed. Lo and behold! We’re left with this tasty, cheekily-named delightful genmaicha. First things first: this tea is a treat to brew. Big green leaves and toasty popped rice, it was ever-so-fragrant– my mouth was watering Read More
