Focus Vanilla Mint from Sportland Tea Co. . . .

This company has caught my eye before so I was very excited to finally try one of their teas. This company has blends geared towards athletes.

Hello Tea Friends! My head is spinning at the idea of a Matcha, cocoa, mint, and orange peel combination and it’s something I have no idea of what to expect. Frankly that is why I chose this blend to try, not only is it original but it’s also from a small Etsy store and I love to give smaller businesses a chance. So lets have a look at the tea. what can I say?…It’s medium sized pieces of what I assume is cocoa and orange peel covered in a green Matcha dust with a few rough looking chopped leaves. It Read More
