Conjure Up the Perfect Cup of Daedra Tea from Grimoire

There’s something about a tea being themed to one of your favorite interests, that just makes the whole experience so much more fun.  Having spent some time battling my way through the fantasy landscape of the Skyrim video game, I was more than ready to brew up a cup of Daedra tea from Grimoire on Etsy. This herbal tea is bold and bloody.  Big chunks of blood orange are paired with dark berry pieces to help sweeten its tart citrus bite.  There’s a dose of snappy hibiscus to add its fruity notes and turn the brew a deep, pink magenta.

Citrus Lavender Sage from Teavana. . . . . .

When I sit down to write reviews here at Sororitea Sisters, I like to ask myself, “what does this tea remind me of?” … and usually a memory, a story, a flavor will follow. I’ve gotta be honest with you guys– this year doesn’t really remind me of anything. Or rather, it reminds me of lots of things? It’s a little like lemonade when it’s iced, but it’s got an earthy, almost slightly bitter aftertaste from the herbs. It’s almost like a green tea, in how light and fresh it is, but not entirely. It’s almost a little bit like Read More

Lavenderose Chamomint from Old Barrel Tea Co. . . . .

You know that saying– too much of a good thing is a good thing? It applies here. I was a little worried when I cracked this tea bag open that it would be TOO MUCH. Allll the herbs, am I right? But upon first sniff, I was intrigued. As with others I’ve tried form Old Barrel, this tea was a perfect, equal blend– all flavors present and accounted for, with nothing overpowering or shying away in the flavor. My first sip confirmed what I sniffed to be true– this tea is GOOD, you guys. Really, really good. It’s light and a Read More

Black Forest Cherry from The Tea Merchant. . . .

This tea traveled all the way from South Africa to join my tea stash in Toronto. Better than that? It arrived with two other Tea Merchant teas in tow: Cranberry and Strawberry Cream. They were all intriguing but my family unanimously determined that this was the best smelling of the three, an interesting decision given that everyone else in my family doesn’t like cherries. I, on the other hand, am a cherry fiend and couldn’t wait to dive in. I have now had this tea a few times since it first arrived and I think I like it best cold Read More

Wild Orange Blossom from Teavana. . . . .

When I first discovered tea I had no idea what I was doing. I went to DAVIDsTEA and Teavana and bought at least 50 grams of everything that seemed remotely interesting. Though, in light of Teavana’s business practices at the time, the 50 grams I asked for of a bunch of different teas ended up weighing closer to 100 grams due to sneaky overpouring. So, I ended up with a bunch of large quantities of teas I never tried before and since I didn’t know any other methods of brewing, if I did not like them hot, I was just Read More
