Sweet Mango Peach Tea from Gypsy Soul Tea . . . . .

I have been on an iced tea kick lately. My friend got me an iced tea press and it is my new obsession. Consequently, I am going through fruit teas like crazy. That is why when this sample arrived, I jumped at the chance to steep it up. Made with apple, hibiscus, pineapple, peach, papaya, lemon peel, and natural flavors, but no mango to be found. Sipping on it now, it’s flavor is quite subtle and light. There is no tartness from the hibiscus which could be a plus for many but that also seems to be a side effect Read More

Tropical Storm Warning: Coconut Blizzard – Teana Colada from Tea Geek’ery

Wow look at those curls of fresh coconut!  There’s more flaky, white goodness in this tea blend than all the snow we have had in this New England winter.  Teana Colada is a simple blend with a cute name and quality ingredients: red rooibos tea and coconut chips.  Brewed hot, there is so much coconut, the buttery blend is almost savory, like butter on toast.  As it cools, the tropical notes of the coconut shine through and mingle with the nutty red rooibos.  This isn’t a true pina colada blend, as there isn’t any pineapple or fruity flavors, but it Read More

Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited. . . . .

Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited is the tea of the moment here at Sororitea Sisters. It’s a sweetly aromatic, attractive deep brown Assam leaved tea with plenty of golden tips thrown into the mix. According to the company’s website these leaves infuse to a rich, medium bodied, and notably malty tasting tea liquor with a clean smooth mouth feel. I agree with most of that, however, I would say that it’s more of a bolder, richer flavored Assam. Boisahabi Estate Assam SFTGFOP1 – 2015 from Capital Tea Limited also has slightly malty flavors with a Read More

Passion Peach Tea from Teavery. . . .

This tea managed to work its way into the bottom of my tin, lying in wait until the perfect moment. Today was such a moment. I’ve been vaguely dizzy and tired all day (I think my medication levels might be wonky) and drank this with lunch, iced. Boom. Back on point. Full precision. This is my sipping companion in its Giant 30 Oz Water Bottle of Super Hydration and Daylong Peeing. I am very awake and able to concentrate again. My typing is loud. I am a laser-beam of focus. This blend is a zippy peach black with saucy berry Read More

Pomegranate Passion White Tea from Simpson and Vail

Whenever I try out a Simpson & Vail blend, I know that I’m in for a treat. With the last days of summer upon us, I wanted to try Pomegranate Passion White Tea as an iced tea. Scooped a few heap fulls into my pitcher, poured in fresh cold water, and a cup full of ice. Placed the pitcher into the fridge and allowed the tea to cold brew overnight. It was fun to see all of the gorgeous colors swirling around in the pitcher while it steeped. The pops of yellow and purple made this tea just holler “Summertime!” The Read More
