Elderberry Blend from Storehouse Teas. . . .

I literally purchased this tea because it was purple. I also like berries, and I have to cut back on caffeine, so this tea seemed to check off a lot of my boxes. But mostly I will buy anything in purple. I once drove a purple car. She looked precisely like this. Like the ingredients, Elderberry Blend’s steeped final result is a plum/magenta color. It’s super-appealing in my clear travel container. But enough about the appearance! WHAT OF THE FLAVOR? YOU ASK. Elderberry Blend tastes great iced on-the-go. Granted, in today’s case, “on-the-go” means “at my desk,” but I traveled Read More

Among the many fandom blends Adagio has to offer, there are a few Adagio collections waiting to be found.

Root Beer Float from The NecessiTeas. . . .

When I cracked open this tea tin and smelled the creamy vanilla and root beer flavors, I knew there was only one way to try this tea…as a latte. That is how I have enjoyed all my root beer float teas from the various companies that have made them. This prep method helps sell the float element by boosting the vanilla creaminess. This particular tea is delightfully creamy as a latte, starting the sip with a silky vanilla bean ice cream sort of flavor. The rooibos is strong so the middle of the sip is all base but that gives Read More

happy zombie

Happy Zombie from Design A Tea. . .

This tea accompanied me to this season’s Game of Thrones premiere. I figured that the show is on at night (it’s a rooibos!) and has an army of the undead (the title has zombies!). SPOT-ON. THE NORTH REMEMBERS. This tea’s spicy oranges taste a bit like mulled wine. It’s a little savory, a little sweet, and puts a dash of twinkle in your eye. I don’t know if this is the influence of the show, but I could imagine this being served at a sturdy, rough-hewn wooden table. Maybe a tavern. Plotting to kill your enemies. Amassing a group of Read More

Elderberry Blend from Storehouse Tea. . . .

Lately I’ve had a few medical issues pop up where I’ve been a bit more careful about the tea I drink.  I’ve found myself more and more drawn to herbals.  Herbals and I have always had this weird love hate relationship.  I’m not a fan of extremely “herbally”flavored teas that are just too spiced ie have lots of ginger. So when I was going through my tea stash and came across Elderberry Blend from our friends at Storehouse Tea I was delighted. Elderberry Blend is a fun mix of hibiscus, elderberries, dried currants, raisins, rosehips and other natural flavors.  As Read More
