Downton Abbey Lady Cora’s Evening Herb Tea from The Republic of Tea. . .

I smell Valerian Root…was the very first thing I thought when opening this single serve tea bag. Isn’t that funny that you can identify one lonely ingredient when it’s mixed in with others? Perhaps it’s because Valerian Root smells like feet – I don’t know! (Insert Sitcom Style Canned Laugh here) Ingredients for Downton Abbey Lady Cora’s Evening Herb Tea from The Republic of Tea include: Lemon balm, linden flower, orange blossoms, chamomile, lavender flower, skullcap, passion flower and Valerian Root. None of which are on my personal faves list when chatting about or sipping on teas and tisanes but Read More

Organic Throat Coat from Traditional Medicinals. . . .

Ever since I was a kid I’ve had throat issues. I got strep throat almost every year. My mother is a nurse and she is really into organic and natural products. One day she came home with this tea and she told me to drink it before bed when my throat was bothering me this one time. The next morning I swear that I felt so much better. Ever since, I have always kept this tea on hand for when my throat started acting up. It works every time. If the issue is strep, it may not rid it completely Read More

Liquorice & Peppermint from Tea Pigs. . . .

I am a sucker for (well, lots, but let’s just focus on the task at hand) two things: cute branding, and licorice tea. Or rather, if you’re non-American, unlike myself: liquorice tea. (Oh, fer cute.) This tea? Has them both in spades. Now, now– I know licorice can be divisive. It’s naturally sweet– sometimes, even too much– and herby in a way that can be weird. But it’s also warm, comforting, spicy, and frankly, I like the sweetness. Dessert tea without the calories or gobs of sugar/honey/maple syrup? Gimme. This particular blend has a cult following of tea piglets, and Read More

Happy from Wild Leaf Active Teas. . . .

If you know me, you know I am ALL-IN when it comes to natural goodies. Tulsi tea falls squarely in this category, friends, and I’ll eagerly drink it up whenever I have the chance. Tulsi is an adaptogenic herbal tea, which means its herbal smarts adapt to support your body in the way that you need at that moment. (Remember, I’m not a doctor. I’m just riddled with hippie tendencies.) This particular blend from Wild Leaf boasts a balance of tulsi and chamomile with hints of lemon balm and rose petals. A true herbal, it brews up beautifully, and the Read More

Roasted Dandelion Root from Traditional Medicinals. . . . .

I have been drinking Yogi teas spiced dandelion tea and really enjoying it. I decided to give this roasted dandelion tea a try. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t enjoy it without the spicy flavor. I had no reason to worry, this tea is really delicious on it’s own. It has a delicious roasted, nutty flavor with just a slight bitterness. As a former coffee drinker, this tea kind of fills that void. It has a little more depth than other teas and kind of reminds me of coffee. But it is caffeine free, so it can be Read More
