Sensibly Script reports back on Thyme Chai by Balcony Tea. . . .

This tea is truly an adventure–and yet warm and comforting at the same time! I brewed it in freshly boiled water (~8-10 oz) for 3 minutes as suggested. I love loose leaf tea, but the pyramid sachets this tea comes in are super cute and convenient. It’s just one less step (putting the tea into the brew basket) but can make a big difference, especially if you’re in a hurry. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Thyme tea before, so this was new and exciting to me. This tea doesn’t seem to have any other herbs/spices besides thyme (the Read More

Holy Basil: The Secret Ingredient to My Fave Detox Tea

Fresh basil is the stuff of summer, plucked from the garden for added depth to sandwiches, or pressed between mozzarella and tomatoes for a caprese plate. Daily Detox tea from the Tea Can Company doesn’t have that kind of basil, but the smell of the dry tea leaves did bring me back to fresh summer days in our family herb garden. Instead, the ingredient this tea is Tulsi, holy basil. There are other ingredients like rose hips or spearmint, but they take a back seat to the strong, forward flavors of lemon myrtle and holy basil.  I was surprised– usually Read More

Tree House of Tea from Adagio Teas. . . . #TeaRex #MonsterBrew #RocketFuel

Beyond the wonderful madness of custom fandom blends on Adagio Teas’ website, they do have a few blends and custom sets of their own.  I tried one of their more whimsical sets, the Tree House series. The vibrant, attractive designs of dinosaurs and monsters on the tins was enough to sway me into giving these teas a try.  The Tree House series are all herbal decaf teas, and meant to be kid-friendly in style, contents, and taste.  Fair warning: these teas brew up strong, fast, so feel free to keep the steep times shorter than you expect.  It’s easy to 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
