Green Jasmine Floral Tea from Grimoire Tea

I’ll be honest with you guys– I don’t know what Grimoire means. Or what Whiterun is. (Don’t take away my nerd card, please.) And frankly, I don’t even reach for green teas (or jasmines!) all that frequently. (I know. Stick with me, I promise.) So when I saw this one waiting for me in my sample stash, I was… dubious, to say the least. Never one to shy away from a cup of anything, however, I knew I had to give this one a try. The jasmine, upon brewing, is the FIRST thing you smell– and I mean that in Read More

Enjoying A Quite Moment with Chai Kai Tea. . . . #jasmingreentea

Being a mom to four boys, two dogs, and a hectic schedule to boot. . . .the quiet relaxing moments for me are sometimes few and far between.  I try to make sure that I get a little “me” time every day which typically involves a few pots of tea.   The other day it involved insane amounts of Jasmine Green from Chai Kai Tea. Prepped with 190F water and allowed to brew for 3 minutes and cooled for an additional two minutes, this tea begs you to take a moment and really enjoy the tea leaves.  This is one Read More

A Cuppa That is Akin to Wilde’s Garden – NovelTea’s Wilde’s Rosy Tea Blend

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”  ~Oscar Wilde And that is exactly how I felt about this tea. I wanted to enjoy over and over and I couldn’t get enough! And as the title suggests, I feel that when I drink this tea I am enjoying this beverage in a garden full of freshly bloomed roses while the door that leads into the garden has some jasmine incense wafting out of it. But before I get into my full review here are the specifics. This tea Read More

Atman Tea Co. . . . .A Unique Green Tea. . .

This tea comes in little sachets that are 100% biodegradable and compostable which I really like. At first glance it didn’t look so much like tea as it did spices or herbs. That is probably the Ashwagandha. This tea’s flavor kind of reminds me of quinoa in a weird way. The smell too. I wouldn’t say it’s bad, or that I don’t like it, but I wouldn’t say that this would be my first choice either. I would say it’s interesting, and maybe it will grow on me. I remember the first time I ate quinoa i wasn’t a fan, Read More

Green Defense from Tocha Tea. . . . . .

Every time I look at this tea’s name — “Green Defense” — I automatically change it in my mind to “Green Defense Against The Dark Arts.” You know, a tea that Harry Potter would drink to fortify himself against mind attacks from Voldemort. Tocha Tea’s site says that this tea “stimulates your senses while supporting overall wellness.” The description is unclear about the use of the word “defense.” Is it a defense against… sickness? Sadness? Malaise? ENNUI?* * (“Ennui” is a favorite word in my very nerdy family. It’s a French term that means “existential dread” and/or “boredom with one’s Read More
