Intensely buttermint

Intensely Buttermint from Twinings. . . . .

This tea is a personal favorite of mine. I tried a sample sent by a tea friend and when I went to London, I knew I needed more. I actually had to cross a marathon just to get to the Twinings shop and it was 100% worth it. It lives up to the “intensely” in its name, being incredibly flavorful. Though that is not the only way it lives up to its name. This tea is both buttery and minty. The butter element providing a great deal of creamy sweetness while the mint keeps everything fresh and interesting. The flavors Read More

Tranquility from Beleave Teas

Raise your hand if it’s been a tense few months, you guys (not just me? phew, good). I’ve been especially mindful of self care this past week, which of course in my home means a good cuppa. When I saw this tea arrive from fellow sister Nichole (aka CuppaGeek) on a particularly long and icky day, I knew just what I’d be brewing up. First things first: holy spearmint, batman. And I’m not mad about it. This tea might be fairly mint-forward, but it’s beautifully balanced by creamy vanilla and herb-y chamomile. I won’t lie– while I was intrigued by Read More

Harbor Time Tea from Steepers Artisan Teas

This tea contains: Peppermint, Green Rooibos, Hawthorn Leaf, Spearmint, Blackberry Leaf. Everything is all natural and pleasant to all the senses! Another Green Rooibos!? YAY! Green Rooibos finally seems to be stepping up and facing the Red Rooibos! I felt for too long that Green has been hanging out in the background while the Red had all the fun! Harbor Time Tea from Steepers Artisan Teas has just enough Green Rooibos to make everything work in this blend of flavors! Read More

Catnap from Aka Tea

I misread the name of this tea at first, and thought it said “Catnip.” Turns out I wasn’t far wrong, because this blend does actually contain catnip. It’s even more fitting when you consider that the company logo, and indeed the majority of their blends, are cat themed. Catnap is purportedly a relaxing blend, containing chamomile, mint, lemon verbena, lemon balm…and catnip. In my head, catnip isn’t something I typically associate with relaxation – it conjures images of bright-eyed, mischief-making kittens. Maybe in humans the effects are different. Noticeable amongst the dry leaf are small whole chamomile flowers, pieces of Read More
